Republic F-105 Thunderchief

Hobbyboss 1/48 F-105G Thunderchief

Hobbyboss' Thud kit is not a great kit. It is plagued with fit and shape issues, notably the cockpit components. Nonetheless, the model radiates much of the greatness of this fighter. Given the large number of parts that require [...]

HobbyBoss 1/48 F-105D Thunderchief

Hi there! This is my recent project. There are few choices if you want an 1/48 F-105(D/G) so I went with HobbyBoss for this. I can’t say I didn’t know about its flaws. I’ll list them here, so perhaps I can give my contribution to [...]

1/48 Hobbyboss F-105G Thunderchief (80333)

This kit is overall very nice but there are a lot of very fiddly bits that test the patience. In particular, the flap assembly and the exhaust assembly are a bit challenging since there are so many parts with little or not mating [...]

F-105B Thunderchief, New Jersey Air National Guard 1965, Hasegawa 1/72.

F-105D Marineflieger, 1/72 Hasegawa

Trumpeter 1/72 F-105G “Wild Weasel”

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 [...]

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 [...]
