Built in 2018.
One of my dad´s excursions to the post WW2 era.
Like all Trumpeter kits, also this one has dimensional and shape issues, but it looks like a Super Sabre.

This was one of three F-100Fs utilized as Chase aircraft early on in the X-15 program at Edwards AFB. Flying Chase -1, it would take off with the NB-52 and fly formation during the climb out and cruise to the launch lake. The chase pilot would v[...]
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 c[...]
Trumpeter 1/48 F-100D, S/N 63-000, Triple Zilch. This is one of the most iconic color schemes for the Super Sabre, and I know I won’t be the last to attempt it. This jet was the personal mount of USAF Col. Raymond F. Toliver, Commander of the 2[...]

The Kit was fantastic to[...]
Fresh off the bench is my latest, the North American F-100D Super Sabre, a Trumpeter 1/48 scale kit.
I didn't start out to build models of jets, but this my 3rd one now, so I guess they are pretty fun too.
The kit offers 4 marking schemes, two[...]
This is the Trumpeter F-100D in 1/72 scale. Completed model number six for the year. I started this one in March completing about 85% of the model when a few problems with kit frustrated me to the point of putting it aside. The misshapen nose f[...]
