During the last weeks I've worked through various 'long-term projects'. I absolutely had to have a model of a Convair F-102A Delta Dagger. It is one of the reasons why I have model making as a hobby at all.
When I decided to do start a Delta Dagger model a few years ago, there exists only a relatively old Hasegawa kit. A few months after I bought one of these on ebay, MENG launched a new kit on the market in 2013. I then had to buy one of them as well. Both models have now been built.
It is interesting to compare both models side by side; the differences between 50 years of model making are clearly visible. MENG offers the model in several variants, in particular with the wing versions "case X" and "case XX". The case twenty version has the wing tips bent downwards.
