Trumpeter 1/72 F-105G “Wild Weasel”

April 15, 2019 · in Aviation · · 28 Comments

Here's my latest finished build. The build went together quite well, with the exception of the rear part of the fuselage that caused a lot of extra work... It was painted with Gunze Aqueous acrylic paints and the weathering was done with 502 Abteilung oils.

  1. nice to see some nam stuff...well done

  2. Whew - I really like that! I love the Thud, and I really like your weathering approach. All the detail looks fantastic. I've got a couple Thud kits but not the Trumpeter - you've convinced me I need one!

    • Thank you very much, Greg - ofcourse you need another Thud in the stash 🙂

      It's a great kit, part from the area around the tailfin (in front of the airbrakes), that needed a lot of work to go together.

      If you are interested in the build process, here's a build-log for this build.
