  1. F-4C/D - Europe1 scheme

    Sorry for being off-topic: Regarding the above photo, I thought only the early Navy Phantoms ( Prototype F4H-1 & F-4Bs) had the movable inner most slats (ie closest to the air intakes). I thought I read somewhere the later models had the inner most slat welded shut? I noticed from online pics of the Zouki Mura F-4C & F-4D both kits have positionable inner most slats.
  2. I think you may have already seen this but just in case you haven't, here is an excellent article about backdating the Revell 1/72 F-105D into an early D. You might be able to use the tips for the Trumpeter kit too: https://modelingmadness.com/scott/viet/f105d.htm
  3. Curved cheat line masking

    These may help for curved lines: Micron tapes http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/search?typ1_c=102&cat=&state=&sold=0&sortid=0&searchkey=micron+masking+tape Hasegawa curved tape: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/search?typ1_c=107&cat=&state=&sold=0&sortid=0&searchkey=hasegawa+masking+tape Tamiya curved tape: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/search?typ1_c=102&cat=&state=&sold=0&sortid=0&searchkey=tamiya+curve+tape
  4. F-105B conversion resin in 1/72?

    Is this the boxing that you are talking about? https://www.scalemates.com/kits/234286-monogram-pa33-98-f-105-thunderchief If so, any idea how I can take a look at the kit's contents? esp the nose?
  5. F-105D - would I be crazy? Image added

    Ok, managed to find the ARC thread that I found that picture from. It was posted by Jennings: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/290229-heres-a-new-one-on-me-colorful-f-105d-test-bird/&tab=comments#comment-2774196 But the actual colour photo of 58-1155 seems to have disappeared. Perhaps a victim of Photobucket's new "You must Pay!" policy? But of note is ARC poster Chek's post :

    No problem sir
  7. F-105D - would I be crazy? Image added

    I too thought it might have been photoshopped. Something about the yellow, esp below the cockpit doesn't look right. But I have a hard time figuring out why anyone would bother photoshopping that particular image. Maybe they tried to sharpen an old photo slide and got carried away. Or maybe it was a genuine photo and the guys at Republic did a hasty paintjob for the airshow open house ( since it is not at all unusual for paint to peel off from test subjects). Notice how the black outline seems to re-appear near the landing gear cover ( above the girl in the blue dress)? By the way, if you're planning to paint the black outline, perhaps these might help: Micron tapes ( the 0.4mm & 0.7mm ones in particular might be useful for 1/72 scale) http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/search?typ1_c=102&cat=&state=&sold=0&sortid=0&searchkey=micron+masking+tape Hasegawa curved tape: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10460325 Tamiya curved tape: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/search?typ1_c=102&cat=&state=&sold=0&sortid=0&searchkey=tamiya+curve+tape
  8. F-105B conversion resin in 1/72?

    The Hasegawa 'B' actually goes for reasonable prices on E-bay. Sometimes it's boxed under "Minicraft" There is also the old "Thunderbirds" F-105B boxing. Keep a lookout on E-bay. They do appear from time to time. It's not exactly a rare kit. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/169823-minicraft-hasegawa-1014-f-105b-thunderchief https://www.scalemates.com/kits/311984-hasegawa-js-122-thunderchief
  9. F-105D - would I be crazy? Image added

    Someone on ARC had posted this a while ago. I saved it on my PC but I'm not sure who the pic belongs to. Unfortunately, the pic doesn't show the front part of the fuselage. Credit goes to original owner of the image.
  10. Ah, I see. I always thought the turret parts were standard on the Academy & Hasegawa kits. I didn't realize the Eduard parts were different. Thank you.
  11. Apart from the book and the decal choices, are there any part differences in this boxing that cannot be found in others ( eg, Academy/Minicraft & standard Hasegawa boxing)? I too find the price to be .....breathtaking. As in , it took my breath away .
  12. Does anyone have the Singapore version for sale? Or at least the decals? Ronin decals webite says it's sold out.
