Monogram F-105 SEA

by Craig Abrahamson on March 18, 2015 in Aviation -- 20 Comments

Another pretty easy build….the ‘old’ Monogram (still one of the best for my money) Thunderchief. Three shades of MM rattle can paint (what else?). I use an old sponge-like material (unevenly torn), and just hold it against the plastic for […]


F-105, F-101 & F-100 NMF’s

by Craig Abrahamson on January 23, 2015 in Aviation -- 26 Comments

More of some older Monogram 1/48th scale “Century Series” NMF’s….this time a trifecta. Rescued (and, in some cases, repaired) from the “shelf of dust”. I was on a tear with my rattle cans of Model Master “Buffable Metalizer’s” a while […]

F-105 G Wild Weasel 1/48 Hobbyboss

Hello colleagues! I will briefly summarize some of the steps taken while my building scale 1: 48-F-105 G from HobbyBoss. Landing gear bays and ejection seat are Aires, while surface treatment was done using acrylic color models Vallejo paints mixed […]


Republic F 105 D Thunderchief

by Morne Meyer on December 23, 2014 in Aviation -- 31 Comments

This is the classic Monogram Thud in 1/48 scale. The model depicts the Thud flown by Capt. Peter Foley on 13 March 1968. This Thud belonged to the 469th Tactical Fighter Squadron of the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing. The 469th […]


1/48 Revell / Monogram F105G of Le Bourget

by Steve Hawley on September 1, 2014 in Aviation -- 16 Comments

I’ve waited twenty years for a better F105G than the Revell/Monogram offering. With each new release came only disappointment. Trumpeter and Hobby Boss kits still have R/M’s pointy nose. Added to that those kits have deep panel lines and exaggerated/unrealistic […]


Republic F-105 Thunderchief, one of the greatest airplanes ever…

by Robert Bausch on January 5, 2014 in Aviation -- 24 Comments

I always have liked the Republic F-105 Thunderchief. Designed to do a clean, precision, tactical nuclear attack, back in the Cold War days. And then never doing that, but saddled with a grunt job of delivering conventional ordnance at low […]


Ferrari air racer

by Robert Bausch on November 14, 2013 in Aviation -- 9 Comments

Back in the 1980s, I thought of doing a model of a hypothetical Ferrari air racer. I used the 1/48 Monogram F-105G kit, one of the 2 seaters, removing the 2nd cockpit. I had already done this to make the […]


HobbyBoss F-105D Thunderchief (1/48th)

by Marvin Reyes on July 25, 2013 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

Here’s the HobbyBoss F-105D in 48th. The kit has way too many parts, that make construction difficult, especially the wings. The seperate spoilers on the upper wing are a pain and it’s a pain to get the spoilers to lay […]

by Frank Cronin on June 24, 2013 in Aviation -- 7 Comments

Col. Stirm is another member of our little “Military Mafia” lunch group that meets each week to solve the worlds problems. It is indeed my privilege and honor to know him and call him my friend. Our lunch group has […]


Monogram’s 72nd F-105F Thunderchief Vietnam

Whenever I get a kit to add to the stash, whether Ebay, hobby shop, online, etc, for the most part a quick peak inside and off to the stash it goes.. But one look at this, the detail for this […]
