As usual, I waited a long time for this model, hoping someone else would jump in, etc. etc.  No one else did, so I did, and here is something you won't often see, the YF-94D, which was actually a converted YF-94C in an earlier life.  This aircraft was going to be a ground-bashing version of the F-94 series, but that never really got off the ground.  This plane and it's single sister ship were used to test the M-61 Gatling gun and 20mm cannon.  When these tasks were completed, they were seconded by the Air Force to the Mass ANG for use as trainers.

Hope that you enjoyed looking as much as I enjoyed adding this bird to the collection.  As usual, while not perfect nor excruciatingly detailed, it's a lot better than the one I had before...

Wow! Now that's a prototype I was never aware of....Very nice work on the conversion! The plane itself might not have impressed the USAF, but obviously that gun did; becoming the standard gun in most fighters til this day! Thanks for sharing!
