I had the honor of talking with a colleague about her late father, who was a F-105D Thunderchief pilot with the 34th TFS based at Korat RTAFB .  He flew 100 missions with them, and then returned to fly the F-105G with the 17th Wild Weasel Squadron.

 

She shared some period photos  which inspired this 1/72 diorama.

Nice job on that THUD, but I love the Snoopy trailer. Nice touch.
