USAFE F-100D Super Sabre


Recommended Posts

So, its hello from me. 


After several years of lurking, this is my first post on the forum. 


This build has also been several years in the making. Its F-100D 55-2817 of the 48th TFW, based at Lakenheath in Suffolk. 2817 crashed on a hill in NE Scotland in August 1969, about 5 miles from where I grew up (no, I wasn't around in 1969...). Fortunately the pilot ejected safely before impact.


Some fairly big chunks of 2817 are still there apparently and the plan is to go and take a look once the weather improves. I've been planning on doing this for a couple of years now, but 2023 is going to be the year (once the snow is gone....).


A bit of googling has led me to conclude that of the older 1:72 kits of the F-100  ESCI's was the best. So here it is. The box has seen better decades, but the kit is all present and correct. The decals will need replacing however, as they look past their best.


Thanks for looking.
