Description

For more than twenty years, the F-106 Delta Dart served as the U.S. Air Force's primary interceptor aircraft, with the mission goal of protecting American soil from Soviet nuclear threats. It was, luckily, never used in combat, though the "Six" (as it was called in USAF service) was used in some standoff situations.

 

The F-106 was unique in that it utilized an internal weapons bay to house its missiles, a design feature originally intended to provide better supersonic flight performance. The internal weapons bay is now being utilized on newer stealth aircraft, such as the F-22 Raptor, to minimize radar signature. The F-106 was replaced by the F-15 Eagle starting in 1981, with the Air Force passing Delta Darts on to the Air National Guard. All F-106s were retired from combat squadrons by 1988, though they continued to serve as NASA test aircraft and target drones.

 

This longstanding guard of American soil is reproduced here in its original A variant, with a carefully applied U.S. Air Force paint scheme. Superb attention to detail and high-quality construction ensure that this model will be treasured for years to come.

 

CHOKING HAZARD - small parts may pose a risk to children under 6 yrs.
