Greetings 

This is a classic kit and one of the best representations of this aircraft . I was stationed at MacConnell AFB,Kansas in the 70's and got to watch them fill the sky.

This aircraft has Kansas markings from that period and is a F-105F backdated from the kit F-105G.

 

Aftermarket was Resin Seats, Metal Main Gear,MV Lenses for Landing lights, and Master Pitot.

Paints were "what we have on hand"..Gunze Dark Green, Testors Acrylic Light green, Vallejo Brown and Humbrol 

Light Grey, over-coated  by Testor Rattle Can Dullcoat (decanted).

Had to go outside for the Photos because the model is quite Large . Reason for two different backrounds.

Used Uschi Powders on Speed Brakes exhaust petals

Just speaking from the heart,Bill.That soft-edge camouflage is something I've got to get to grips with.Your work shows great eye-for-detail and I admire and respect that.Looking forward to your 'Phantom'!

😉👍 All the very best,Paul.

Very nice build indeed!

The 105 was not really a fighter, but had more success as a fighter than many others!

I like this plane,especially in this three tone camouflage.

You made beautiful model. Really eye catcher.

Hello,

Excellent build and fantastic "spray" job on this Monogram Oldy.

But, Monogram 1/48 never lets you down.
