  1. Hello All, Another long term work in progress that has made it to the bench again. This time it is the Revell EA6A Wild Weasel. I started this several years back. It is a bear of a kit. with many hard to fill gaps , especially in the wheel wells. I did my best to fill them with strip plastic..they came out OK. Many of the panel lines at the intakes and underside panel were lost do to poor fit so those were rescribed. I don't worry about mixing raised and scribed lines. In any case hope you enjoy the pictures and as always any comments are greatly appreciated. All the Best!
  2. Hi all and my latest finish, a Monogram 1/72 F-105G Wild Weasel built for a Vietnam GB elsewhere. The build thread is here if you're interested but to recap: Kit: Monogram 1/72 F-105G Build: Out of the box Paints: Halfords primer from a can. Revell Acrylics with a paint brush. Future, Flory Models Wash, W&N Matt Varnish Decals: Mix of kit and Superscale Sheet. Markings: 561st Tactical Fighter Squadron, 388th Tactical Fighter Wing, Southeast Asia 1972. This aircraft (S/N 63-8320) scored 3 Mig kills in Vietnam. I don't know if the aircraft carried kill markin
  3. As tated in the build thread, here are some hastily-taken, and not very good photos of my "Whacked Out Wild Weasel" build. So named because of the plastic mayhem needed to make a good kit out of the Trumpeter F-100 offering. In fact, the fact that it's the Trumpete kit is probably the only thing that sets if off from other builds of the F-100F -- that and the fact that most of the pics have disappeared from most of the other builds on-line! Without further ado, the pics:
  4. Happy to show my first model after joining BM. This old kit, intended as a quick build for training freehand added airbrush camouflage, surprised me with robust quality plastic resulting in a very smooth build. Despite the age (1980's) and the raised panel lines I started to like it more and more during the construction period. The model is build in the colors off the 17th Wild Weasel Squadron based at Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base, (1970-1974). Plane no. 291, was nicknamed "Muttley the Flying Dog". A famous cartoon in that period. Crew chief Bob Wood himself painted the cartoon
  5. With a few builds to clear off the bench at the moment so I'm not getting straight on with this. However, here's the plan for thi very exciting GB. The kit: Trumpeter's 1/72 F105G Thunderchief. Extras: Eduard's "Big Ed" PE detailing set. Others: Hasegawa ground crew and equipment. CMK Vietnam era pilots (standing). In the group chat I heard the fin needs modifying to be accurate so if anyone knows how to go about doing this let me know and depending on how much time I have, I might give it a go.
  6. Its 1965 and the USA is deeply engaged in the war in Vietnam. The F105D Thunderchief is one of its main strike aircraft, but the NVA is fighting back hard and the F105D is taking heavy casualties As well as the tenacious Mig pilots, the US Air was was dogged by the Soviet designed SA 2 'Guideline' Surface to Air Missile (SAM). This missile was supplied to North Vietnamese by the Soviets - the Vietnam War was the first modern war in which guided antiaircraft missiles seriously challenged highly advanced supersonic jet aircraft. It would also be the first and only time that the latest and
  7. You can't have a WHIF without a TSR2. Sorry no kit bashing involved with this, but I will be using lots of spares from the box to build a Wild Weasel variant. The aim is to have a rotary bomb bay, alarms on the wings, ECM & chaff pods on the spine and so on. Also a new cammo wrap, possible to match the current MTP or a desert style with dark earth, mid stone. Oh yes and all in smashing 1/144. Thanks for looking, pictures to follow.
  8. Well - In keeping with my routine I will build a 1/48 model as well as the 1/72. Without going 'Full Limey' with the Hase FG1, I decided to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and build the F4G from Spang as part of my childhood USAFE memories project. Jury is out with regarding the finish....I was going for the Lizard/Euro 1 finish, but the other Tim is doing that (I also like 3 colour cam finishes and masking....) So I may use the Xtracolor 48005 decals for the later grey model as I am not sure about the Hase decals? Also think about some aftermarket HARM's or may just build OOB...choices choices!
