Conversion from single seater to two seater

This is my Monogram F-106B from the Montana ANG.  The Monogram kit was grafted to the Falcon Vac conversion and completely rescribed.

The decals used were Superscale.  The cockpit was done using two Monogram tubs, the canopy was detailed using various bits of plastic and wire and parts from the vac conversion. 

The weapons bay was positioned open and the bay was modified  along with the bay doors to suit the "B" models differences.

The vac conversion was a relatively easy conversion, I had been waiting for the C&H offering when this one kind of fell into my hands.  I would like to still do the C&H offering as a comparison.
