Best F-105 in 1/72?

What's the group's opinion on the best Thud in 1/72? My local HobbyTown USA
has both the Hasegawa and Trumpeter Thuds in this scale, so what's the best
option? TIA.

Out of those two it's Trumpeter hands down. The Hasegawa kit is 40 years old and never was terribly accurate. If you can find the Revell from the mid 1990s kit it's a strong contender to equal the Trumpeter though.

Is the Revell one from the 1990s the Monogram one from the 1980s? I guess it also depends on whether he wants a single or twin seat -105.

It's very close. At the time Revell and Monogram had merged but not yet changed their packaging. I suspect that both kits were mastered at the same time but for whatever reason they were released under separate banners.

the reason is obvious, sell the same kit twice.

F-105D is what I'm after at the moment. Preferably a ROLLING THUNDER aircraft. The Wild Weasel G will come later. Speaking of which, anyone know which plane ex-POW Leo Thorsness was flying on his MOH-winning mission with two MiG-17 kills?
