Revell's 1/48 scale F-105D "Thud" Thunderchief.


Recommended Posts

Well I accidentally put this topic on the World forum although its not messing anything up. Anyway I've started the F-105D from Revell and it looks like a nice build.

I have some progress pics now and I'll be posting some more as I go along. I'm building this kit OOB with the possibility of AM pilots since it has everything I want.

I did this plane in 1/72 scale but the decals were atrociously old, so I'm giving it another go. I'll be continuing this thread on this site. Enjoy.

Well I tweaked and cleaned up the pit, added it to the fuselage after I primed it and the wings. I've decided to put this "Thud" in flying mode. It will be a change of pace and considering its 1/48 scale I'll probably will need two rods to keep it airborne. So far I'm very impressed with the relief of this Revell kit.

Well I was cruising along after doing my preliminary paint job, when I discovered that the decals for this plane just broke apart as I tried to apply them. I was very disappointed since I've worked with Revell decals and they are normally very good. The F-14 I built was from Revell with great decals. So I'll be taking a recess for a week until I get the new ones I ordered. But here is my F-105D with its preliminary camo scheme.
