“HUNS” over Europe
My special field of interest are cold war jets in their colorfull unit markings. Today I want to show you one of those birds, Trumpeter’s F-100 D “Super Sabre” in 1:32 scale. With a couple of corrections a nice “Hun” can be built of of that chinese kit. First of all I have to mention the incorrect air intake, which I have replaced by a ZACTO product. This type of facelift gives the Hun that realistic look.
Finish is as usual kitchen foil, using only the flat backside of the foil, because that looks more realistic.
Markings show the personal aircraft of the commander of the 50th Tactical Fighter Wing while stationed at Toul-Rosiere, France 1960. All in all it was really fun to build that model in the big scale .
Although no Shelters were in use at that time, I coud’nt resist to put the model in front of a picture of a NATO shelter and a type of diorama was born. Or a what if ?
