F-100D Super Sabre

by Marcelo Ribeiro


North American F-100D Super Sabre


 Revell-Monogram's 1/48 scale F-100D Super Sabre is available online
Squadron.com for only USD$11.96




This is my F-100D Super Sabre model. I used the old 1/48 scale Monogram "Thunderbirds" Sabre as the base model.

My intention was to build a Vietnam war veteran aircraft, so I picked up some spare decals and painted the model with the South East Asia cammo pattern. The SM letters of the tail was made by a friend and fitted well at the model.

I opened some hatches of the plane and I installed some pipes and wires inside it. The covers were done by aluminum foil and placed on the plane wing, to simulate some fixing work. One cannon hatch was opened too, revealing the cannon barrel. The napalm bombs are from Monogram's A-10 model.

I painted one of the underwing fuel tanks silver. My objective was to simulate a tank originally from a silver F-100 still not painted with the SEA camouflage scheme.

The paints used was Tamiya Acrilic and the metal scratches was done with a silver paint roller pen.
