can someone clarify the section on the undercarriage? says its gonna be
weak and that we should add
a substantial pin to it. I assume its gonna need some strengthening or
maybe a clear stand underneath it to make sure the undercarriage won't
take any downward pressure....
I'm totally confused as to what version to get. I really suck at getting
all the bombs to look the same. Ideally I would like the version that would
have the smallest payload (and the simplest to build)
fuel tanks and rockets would be just fine.....
that being the case, what version would most likely carry such a load, D or
thx for any guidance you can offer....
Prolly the Wild Weasel 'G' - a centreline drop tank and pair of Shrikes
should do it! :o)
And bear in mind you get more in the 'G' as you get everything that's in the
'D' plus a longer fuselage and second cockpit. Weapons supplied are the
M177 Bombs, Mk 82 boms (both with, or without fuse extenders), ALQ 71 ECM
pod, 720lb Napalm, AGM-12B Bullpup, AGM-78 and AGM-45A missiles plus drop
tanks - wing and centreline.
514 parts for the 'D', 534 on the 'G'
That means I can look forward to some of their offerings of WW II planes and
hope they did the same there. I can hardly wait for a -4 Corsair.

I think it s partly due to the attachment pin, but the F-105 landing
gear is long, and in 1/48th scale, F-105 models have a tendency to
"shimmy" if the shelf vibrates, so there is some concern that in 1/32
scale, it may not much to break the gear.

When diplomacy fails, send in the B-52's
I got the D and will probably get the G. Wouldn't mind doing Jack
Broughton's bird, but I think you have to remove the strike camera and
the hydraulic fairing on the top of the fuslage. Does anyone know if
that is correct? From what I got from the few pics of "Alice's Joy",
these weren't there. Kutnya's is cool too. How bout doing one of the
Diamondback Thuds(466TFS)? "My Karma" would be good with the wraparound
Euro One paint. Gripe on the weapons. Standard could have been left out
and something else(anything) could have been added. Good to have a
spares box. Also, a damn pilot that is positionable would have been
All in All.......GREAT KIT FOR A GREAT BIRD!
At least two decal manufacturers have announced forthcoming Decals for this
a/c... I guess resulting models would be classed too obscene to be displayed
at a public model show...
ISTR the 5' nude was painted on top of the nose, legs akimbo around the
refuelling door, in an effort to improve the accuracy of the 'boomers' on
the KC125s! :o)
Yes, I think it would.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though
checkered by failure than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither
enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows
not victory nor defeat"
Anyone notice the twin launch rail adapter for the Shrike ARM? The other
"famous" painting at the refueling door is "Cherry Girl". Hope the
aftermarket decals have some good offerings. I saw Cutting Edge decals at
Metoer Productions website. I think "Jinkin Josie" is one of them also.
Anyone know anything about Broughton's 105 "Alice's Joy"? Thanks for the any
help in advance.
