1/32 F-100D Super Sabre – Trumpeter

Thud was one of the most effective aircraft of Turkish Air Force for 30 years . I built this model to the memory of Capt. Cengiz Topel who shot down in this aircraft and killed after bailed out over Cyprus in 8th August 1964. This model built straight from box with some small corrections. I used Tamiya acrylics and all markings paintinted by masking. except 112nd “Devil” Squadron emblem painted by hand.
Happy modelling

  1. Are you sure it was ’64 and not ’74? I don’t recall any fighting in ’64, but there sure was a war in ’74. Also not sure the Turkish AF had the Hun in ’64. Could be wrong about all that.

    Very nice build. I’ve done one and have another in the pile, it’s one of Trumpeter’s best IMHO.

  2. Another member of the “Turkish Mafia”-and another great build. Your compatriot Tolga must approve.

  3. Very neat metal finish and nice sense of detail make this a great model.
