    First Photo is B&W to kind of set the tone. 1950's era Israeli Mustang between Independence War and Suez Crisis

    Super Kit, Markings are mostly from Spares Box except the 101 "Angel of Death" emblem that I got on a special sheet from Hannants.

    I was thinking of going to Omaha with this when completed ,but after completion I realized I would have to purchase another seat. This is a Large Aircraft.

    I tried Photos outside with different Backdrops.

     

    This is a model of an F-105F from when I was stationed at McConnell AFB in 1973.

    Simple backdate of the Monogram F-105G.

     

     

    I added Metal Landing Gear and Master Pitot both good additions

    I have used Alclad "a Lot" . I have had Tape lift metal finish and look like tape residue left behind. I have used SNJ buffing powder to "Repair" the finish. The best method of masking was to put a coat of Alclad Clear Coat then Mask. I use Yellow Frog Painters Tape..which is like a low tack Tamiya tape.

     

    My Two cents

    Started with the Harrier and got hooked on the squadron. Then built the Wildcat and will now look to the future with a Corsair,Skyhawk and lastly a F-35B.
    Hasagawa Harrier with Two Bobs markings for "Wake Island Avengers".
