About the Book
Colors & Markings of the F-102 Delta Dagger is the second book in Detail & Scale’s Digital Colors & Markings Series covering iconic military aircraft of the 20th Century.  Between 1984 and 1994, Detail & Scale produced 24 titles in our Colors & Markings Series of books, but the series was discontinued because of limitations then existing in the printing business.  With the advent of digital publications, this acclaimed series has returned, and this second volume in the series shows the benefits of digital publishing at its best.  The book covers the three primary color schemes used on the F-102 Delta Dagger in detail, and provides coverage of every operational squadron that flew the famed Deuce.  Sixty-five fighter interceptor squadrons are covered spanning the five major commands that operated the F-102: Air Defense Command (ADC), Alaskan Air Command (AAC), United States Air Forces in Europe (USAFE), Pacific Air Forces (PACAF), and the Air National Guard.  Colors & Markings of the F-102 Delta Dagger comprehensively covers this iconic member of the Century Series of fighters with over 370 pages, 520 photographs, 352 of which are in color, 48 full color aircraft profiles, and additional illustrations including paint diagrams.  Along with the first volume in the series, Colors & Markings of U. S. Navy F-14 Tomcats, Part 1:  Atlantic Coast Squadrons, this series sets the standard for covering squadron usage of iconic military aircraft.
