This 48th scale Monogram kit has been sittin’ around collectin’ dust for a while now, but I gave her a quick bath to get the top layer off and took a few pics on the bench with a homemade tarmac (sorta). This version represents one of the earlier Thuds in the NMF livery and no armament (save for the external tanks). Having seen one on a few occasions, one doesn’t realize the size of this thing until you find yourself walking under the wing without having to duck. These photos aren’t the best, but I decided to snap off a few under the desk lamp rather than wait for the sun to come up. I have another -105 in SEA camo with a centerline MER, but it’s a “hanger” and it’s right over the litter box and it’s REAL dusty.
