Republic F-105G Thunderchief
HobbyBoss' 1/48 scale F-105G Thunderchief is available online from Squadron
I present my latest completed model, the classic Century Series Republic F-105G "Thunderchief" in 1/48 scale from HobbyBoss.
Corresponds to an F-105G (early) of the 561 TFW TFS/388 version on Aeromaster decal set 48-674 "Lead Sleds pt II".
This particular aircraft has been preserved in the USAF Museum and there is some controversy over its markings.
The Kit and Aftermarket
At this point, not much to point out, is by far the best Thud on this scale, detailed in Hobbybooss
fine form this popular reactor, detail and fit are great .....
The two main areas of improvement are as follows:
The fit inside the cockpit with side walls is not optimal because there are a few millimeters of light
which should be supplemented.
The detailed cockpit side panels is zero.
Accessories used were as follows:
Cabin panels pre-painted Eduard PE
Scale of Eduard Photoetch access
Remove Before Fligth Tally-Ho and Eduard
Aires Resin Wheels
Legends' F-105 Seats set
Painting and Weathering

SEA colours used were:

Forest Green Humbrol 116
118 of Humbrol Brown
Light Gray, 28 Humbrol

The figures paint with acrylics Vallejo.
