F-105F Thunderchief ,1/72 Monogram
Inspired by Greg Kittinger’s father’s photos, I decided to build an F-105F, using Monograms 1/72 kit. I tried to replicate the markings in Mr. Kittinger’s images the best that I could, including the buzz number on the wing tanks, of which is rather unusual. I used Testor’s aluminum out of the rattle can. It’s of an era just before the war paint, before Thud ridge, SAM sites, how many bombs dropped, body counts and the six o’clock news. Always liked the Thud, when my father was at Republic he worked on the F-105 prototype.
