  1. File Name: RF-101C 18TRS OP Sun Run File Submitter: DaniloE31 File Submitted: 24 May 2012 File Category: F-101 RF-101C 18TRS OP Sun Run This is a new skin for one of the finest 3rd part models for the SF2 series, ie the RF-101C Voodoo from the Voodoo Mega Pack V2.0 by ErikGen, available here at CA: http://combatace.com/files/file/12117-f-101-mega-pack-version-20/ It represents the six planes of 18TRS that took part at the Operation Sun Run in 1957, including the spare cells No. 5 & 6. Operation “Sun Run” was the attempt of a transcontinental speed record from LA to NY, which the Voodoos achieved with a time of 3:05,39 for the single trip and of 6:42,06 for the round trip. Stunning how this record was beaten only 33 years later in 1990, by an SR-71A which took just 64min for the trip from LA to NY... There are not very much pictures out there, even less reliable paintings, the best information I could gather are the following: a nice article from Jan van Waarde, which is the best story about Sun Run you can find far and wide, a picture by McDonnell of Sun Run No3 before delivery, the “propaganda” video praising the record and finally... some Hasegawa blue prints: http://de.scribd.com/doc/195090334/Sun-Run-Jan-Van-Waarde-2010 http://www.boeing.com/history/mdc/graphics/hist033b.htm I used the original metal skin of the 45TRS by Dave (or at least I think... ) coming with the Mega Pack, I cleaned it up to make it naked and basic, and finally added every marking and insigna with the technique of decals. This was surely a bit time-consuming and a kind of compromise, but was to me the only way to display those 6 very different looking planes using just one folder... The specular dds maps are also based on those from the original Mega Pack. The USAF star badge and the TAC patch are original TW work, everything else was drawn from scratch by me. Tested with Strike Fighters 2 Exp2. Install extracting to: X:\your mod folder\Strike Fighters2...\Objects\ I really hope you are going to love this little piece of aviation history.
