Delta Dawn Campaign

  • move
The Delta Dawn campaign recently concluded and was themed around building an aircraft built using the Delta wing form. The delta wing is a triangular swept-back wing that is frequently a feature of military aircraft. It was first developed in the 1930s by the German Dr. Alexander Lippisch and was test-flown with Convair's experimental XF-92A in 1948. Since the early days of the 50's up to present day, virtually every major nations air force has flown at least one type of delta winged aircraft so there are literally dozens of kits and nations to choose from.

Hermon (Voncuda) came up with the idea and Justin McCracken (Keeperofsouls2099) led the campaign with the following thirteen entrants completing the campaign with some outstanding builds of delta winged aircraft.

I have been modeling for 20 years mostly because of my passion for anything mechanical.I also feel it's a very good way to remember our history as many of the men and woman on this web site had relatives who are in some way connected to these machines.I learn more everyday and hope to continue build...

Great work everyone. My F-102 is still limping along. Mostly painted but needs touch-up and then decals and final assy.
