Here we have Monogram’s 1/72 F-105G Thunderchief. I built this one about a year ago and I believe this was a “next step” kit for me. By that I mean that I ventured further into the realm of building for as much realism as possible. The kit was built mostly from the box except for Wolfpak decals and I used Shrike missiles from a Hasegawa Weapons Set. I really tried to show some wear and tear on this “Thud”. I dry-brushed Testors Aluminum in random spots along the panel lines and weathered it with pastels. At the last minute I decided to pose this one just after take off with the landing gear retracting. I went to my local hobby shop and purchased some clear dowel rods to support it. Overall this was a good build. It’s a leap to try something different, but that’s the point with modeling right?
