by Ivan Aceituno

Republic F-105G Thunderchief



HobbyBoss' 1/48 scale F-105G Thunderchief is available online from Squadron

 

Description

 

I present my latest completed model, the classic Century Series Republic F-105G "Thunderchief" in 1/48 scale from HobbyBoss.

 


The Version

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:

  1. The fit inside the cockpit with side walls is not optimal because there are a few millimeters of light which should be supplemented.

  2. 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

 

 

  • 48-674 Aeromaster Decals "Lead Sleds pt II".

  • Figures Verlinden

  • Track Noy's Miniatures "concrete aircraft parking area Vietnam of U.S. airbase in Vietnam"

  • varied scratch!


 

Painting and Weathering

Fully painted with Testor's Model-Master and Humbrol enamels.

 

 

SEA colours used were:

  1. Humbrol 117 Light Green

  2. Forest Green Humbrol 116

  3. 118 of Humbrol Brown

  4. Light Gray, 28 Humbrol

  5. Aclad for Nozzles

 

 

The figures paint with acrylics Vallejo.

The weathering was done using washes, Weathering Wash pigments the paneling with black and mud.
