Oddball Douglas F4D SkyRay

I decided to build the Oddball Productions Douglas F4D SkyRay. This is one of the very few Non-Prop aka Jet aircraft that I've ever given a second look at.

I'm an old school kind of guy and generally find prop driven airplanes more appealing. Not that I don't find a couple of Jet powered planes appealing, I build very few of them.

This was a fairly easy build, just need to pay attention to making sure that you make the wings attach to the fuselage fairly flat. From what I could tell, there is little if any dihedral built into the wings.

This is also the most colorful model, paper or plastic, that I've every built.

Thanks for looking,

Very nice and clean. I see you took my advice and lightened up the canopy, looks MUCH better. Good job!

No dihedral on the wings, totally flat. It is a very colourful plane and a lot bigger than you initially think it will be.

That looks great! I must not have been paying attention when Aaron did this one, because I didn't know he had a Ford in his line. I'm pretty sure I've never seen that scheme before, either.
