  1. Thunderchief

    With the F-105 foremost in my mind at present I thought I'd post a few images from a trip around Carswell in 1980. I'll post more once I have time to scan them. The first three are a flight heading out to the ranges in the early morning (around 08:00). The light was low and so the Kodachrome didn't preform well, hence the B&W. Note 61-0076 is named "Pandora's Play Thing". Martin
  2. Hi all, Having recently treated myself to the truly excellent tome of Thud units histories by James Geer, I have finally taken the plunge and purchased a kit (a Trump) and a fair bit of resin. My plan is to build "Mr Toad"/"Marilee E" 59-1749. It is a reverse pattern machine from the Vietnam era.m My question? Does any Thud expert out the have an images showing the "Mr Toad" motif? Thanks in advance, Martin
  3. The Trumpeter kit isn't too bad. Fit is pretty good, detail adequate and the decals settle own nicely. One negative about the kit is the weapons. You get 3 drop tanks, more than a few Mk 83's, two MER's and two AGM-12's. It's is a little bit limiting as early in Rolling Thunder, thuds normally carried 6 Mk 117 bombs on an MER on the center line mount, but you get no centerline weapons mount either. For aircraft venturing into the more dangerous RP's, a QRC-160 jamming pod and AIM-9B were carried for self defense, neither of these are included. Thus I used Hasegawa weapons sets and scratch built a center line mount for the MER. This aircraft, 61-0132 was flown by 1st LT David Waldrop III on his double MiG killing mission over the Yen Vien Rail Marshaling Yards on August 23rd 1967. He claimed and was initially credited with gunning down two MiG 17's, although later on his second kill was disallowed. Waldrop would complete 100 missions over North Vietnam.
  4. a couple from the "good old days" , shot in 1980. Martin
  5. Some years ago I started building a F-105D as flown by one of the Air Force's most skilled pilots, the young Lt. Karl W. Richter. At the mere age of 23 he as "Ford 03" shot down a MiG-17 over North Vietnam. After his 100 'counters' he volunteered for another 100. Even so, this wasn't enough, he volunteered for another, third tour, as I believe as a fast FAC.. Officially credited with 198 missions he was hit on 28th of July 1967 by AAA and had to eject. Richter broke both legs during ejection and landed badly in enemy territory. He was picked up by Jolly Green 52 but died from his wounds on the flight back. Richter probably had flown in excess of the 200 missions. If he officially had, he would have been sent home. More on this page. One of my all time heroes.. So, here it is, a continuation of before using amongst others the Hobby Boss kit. It's been some years since I painted this Black Box pit, and I am still happy with it.. One of the reasons I paused before was the thinly shaped nose.. D-Molds agrees with a resin replacement.. on top of each other.. nosejob! pretty amazed by how good it seems to fit.. the ventral fin also needs some work (same D-molds set).. and that's how it fits.. fltr HobbyBoss, D-molds, Quickboost.. D-molds needs the missing parts of the HB kit, I could have done without this.. Aires wheelbay.. wing ready to accept.. should give me something like this.. the inside of the inlets have a variable duct plug. this is clearly visible.. something of an inlet channel.. made by.. splitter plates have mold release marks which are also visible.. my intakes from the top.. fttb.. Hobbyboss, Quickboost, Quickboost with a saw mark.. fttb.. Monogram, Hobbyboss, Brassin MER..
  6. I going enter with this one: I want to do 61-0069 "Cherry girl" from the Print Scale sheet, but I can't find any references showing the artwork on deployment, as the only pictures around is from 1983. some interesting but quite graphic pictures of "cherry girl", hence the code: http://scalemodels.ru/modules/myarticles/img_7309_1397662041_var-1.jpg.html Anyway I will get started on the cockpit soon.
  7. Here are some shots I was lucky enough to get back in October 2013 when I visited California.

  9. Century Series GB 2015

    And for number 2.......... Ok this GB is for what could be described as the start of the golden age of US aircraft design from the 50’s to the early 60’s, the “Century Series” aircraft. A bit of something for everybody here with the main types everyone knows and a couple of experimentals for those who like to be different! F-100 Super Sabre F-101 Voodoo F-102 Delta Dagger XF-103 Thunder Warrior F-104 Star Fighter F-105 Thunderchief F-106 Delta Dart YF-107 Ultra Sabre XF-108 Rapier XF-109 Sorry the F-110 Spectre was renamed/numbered F-4 Phantom and the F-111 Aardvark is a bit too late. As for the F-117 don’t ask! I think probably everyone has one of these in there stash, if not they’re easy to get hold of and there’s tons of aftermarket stuff to keep all sorts of builders happy! 1, trickyrich - host 2, Starfighter 3, jb65rams 4, hythe 5, Swamp Donkey 6, Mish 7, Julien 8, hgbn - co-host 9, Paul J 10, AndyC 11, Arniec
