F-105g reference pics needed!
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, May 4, 2004 4:16 PM
Hey everyone, I'm working on Trumpeter's 1:32 f-105g wild weasel and I'm on the weathering. I think I might have overdid it a little, but so far I can't find any pics of the thing online. So does anyone have any good links of the f-105? Thanks everyone!

I tried to get weathered ones, but there were some that were abnormally clean too. I'd bet that any weathering you do will be just fine.

Those are good links, madda. I think some of them are just in a boneyard though.

I'm building the same model, and have several links to reference photos on my site. Go to http://www.craigcentral.com/models.asp and scroll down to the F-105G reference section. There are numerous photos including a couple of walkarounds.

I don't think that any of the pix on my links are during wartime, I think they are all post-war or after the birds have been refurbished or cleaned up. I don't know what they looked like "On The Line" in Thailand, but I suspect they were pretty war worn since they were flying a lot of sorties. I agree with madda, I think any style of weathering that you do would reflect some phase of their history.
