This tiny aircraft was designed as a “private” escorting fighter for the enormous Convair B-36 Peacemaker, and was fixed through a hook to the belly of the bomber; in case of attack it could get detached easily. Though a few tests were carried out, it was never in service.
In order to achieve a colourful painting, the hook is shown once opened; the airplane is assembled onto a transport platform used by ground crew as the Goblin had no landing gear.
This very simple work is dated in September 1994 and belongs to my friend Juan Manuel Villalba. Juan Manuel is undoubtedly, one of the best modellers I’ve ever met.
