The F-102 Delta Dagger Cold War interceptor. It was designed in the early 50's but didn't go supersonic. After lots of remodeling, it reemerged in '54 as the YF-102A and went mach 1.22. it entered service in 1956 and was retired in the 1970's. This model has the internal weapons bay (to make the plane more streamlined) and retracting wheels, although there are no doors as I could not find a good way to both balance the plane out and have opening bays. I spent a lot of time on it and I am quite content with it. Please enjoy, as this is probably my favorite Lego creation!
About this creation


The F-102 saw little action, although it did sometimes intercept Soviet reconnaissance aircraft and was a ground-attack plane in Vietnam.



The engine was the most awkward part to build, as I had to taper the fuselage and make those pointy things that flank the nozzle.



For a while the plane was the most high-tech aircraft around, with a top speed over mach 1.2 and the most advanced avionics in the world. It was quickly outphased, however, by newer designs like the F-104, F-106, and the F-4.



All of the plane's weaponry was stored inside the aircraft to reduce drag. Sometimes the plane would have drop tanks, but those were typically carried by its successor, the F-106 Delta Dart.



The F-102 was the first plane to use the "area rule," which sucks in the fuselage at the thickest point of the wing-root. It is somewhat present in this model.



The cockpit had very poor rearward visibility, and the production aircraft had a large spar that ran down the center of the canopy. The cockpit in this model is quite roomy, unlike the real F-102's.

Oh thanks to much I worked really hard on getting the shape just right on this plane. I made sure that it had the missile bay.
