    Lead Sled, CF-Zilch, Canuck, CF-100.

    I'd love to see a decent model done of the old girl, she wasn't pretty, but she had character. I serviced her a few times during my time at Base Flight in Cold Lake, the flames produced by the Orenda 10's during a night start would really put the fear of God into you the first few times.

    I've got that one, but wasn't too pleased with it.

    I realise that it is an obscure bird (only operated by the RCAF/CAF and the Belgium airforce, but it was for some time the only all weather interceptor that Nato had. And not a bad bit of engineering for a small country (populationwise) that had never built a fighter before.

    Avro Clunk - CF100

    I have a paper model of this aircraft. It was published by Wilhelmshavener in November 1957, Kit #1610, at 1:50 scale. Long out of print. It is a Mark 4.
