  1. Thanks Jari! Looks like the info in the Osprey Air Combat F-105 Thunderchief book is not accurate, as they are clearly stating the F-105D and F models could be loaded with 4 Mk.28's or Mk.43's. However now that I think about it, I don't think F-105's could carry a nuke in the bomb bay and centerline at the same time. I think they probably meant that there were 4 "stations" that could take these, but not at the same time. So it's going to be: - 2 droptanks and a centerline Mk.43-0 for my F-105D; - 2 droptanks and a centerline Mk.28RE for my F-105F;
  2. Another one: Were the F-15C's at Spang regular F-15's or the MSIP version? Or both?
  3. Found some additional pictures of F-105's with centerline nukes in the Osprey Air Combat F-105 Thunderchief book: With Mk.28: With BDU-8: It also states: Knowing the above, I might go for 3 droptanks and 2 Mk.43-0 for my F-105D and 2 droptanks and a centerline Mk.28RE for my F-105F.
  4. According to the link Murph supplied, the F-105 was eventually certified to carry the MK-28, MK-43, MK-57 and Mk-61 nuclear bombs, but I'm also not sure which one is loaded.
  5. LF & WTB Wolfpack WP48010 - F-15A MSIP Mod. Eagle Update Set + WP48015 - F-15C MSIP II Mod. Eagle Update Set Hi all, I'm looking for these two Wolfpack kits: Wolfpack WP48010 - F-15A MSIP Mod. Eagle Update Set Wolfpack WP48015 - F-15C MSIP II Mod. Eagle Update Set Is there anybody here that has one or both of these kits in his/her stash, is not going to use them and would willing part with them? If anybody knows where I might buy these new, this would also be very helpful. Thanks for any reply.
  6. Thanks guys. Range wise a nuke on one wing pylon and a fuelltank on the other one together with an internal and centerline fueltank would give the F-105 more range, but I don't know if this was done at Spangdahlem. I do know nukes were carried on wing pylons under F-105's on Victor Alert stationed in Japan, together with a centerline fueltank as can be seen below.
  7. Thanks Murph! I will leave them off my model, as I didn't like the look of these anyway. 🙂 Will just be a Mk28EX on the centerline and 2 fueltanks on the middle wing pylons. I'm only wondering if the other wing pylons would be empty or that they would remove these. Any chance you know this?
  8. Thanks for the info Murph, this answers the first two of my questions! 😀 Now I only need to know if the F-105F's also were able to carry the B28 and B43 bombs. I assume they were, but it would be great if I could find some confirmation. Also an additional question: Do you know if the F-100D's also used the smaller inner pylon fuel tanks when carrying a centerline B28?
  9. Hi all, Another long shot, but I'm looking for information with what kind of type of nuclear bombs the Spangdahlem based F-100's and F-105's (1961-1967) would have used. I know that F-100's were capable to carry the Mark 7 and Mk 28 nuclear bombs, but I really would like to find out which one they used at Spangdahlem from 1959-1961. The F-100 was also capable to carry the B43, but as the B43's only became operational in 1961, the same year the F-100's at Spangdahlem were replaced by F-105's, I assume they weren't used on the Spang F-100's. The same ques
  10. Thank you very very much, I guess I'll be building 54-543! 🙂
  11. Great info, but I'm unable to find the both 54-520 and 54-543 in your listing? The number of the transport behind looks like 15209 and the caption with the picture says: Bentwaters 14-5-60. (https://www.flickr.com/photos/dwhitworth/5797030778/) Also found this picture with caption: "19th TRS (Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron), 66th TRW - Douglas RB-66B-DL Destroyer - 54-511 - at Spangdahlem AB, Rhineland-Palatinate, West Germany, 1958."
  12. The problem are unclear instructions included in this Italeri kit and their conflicting answers. I just would like to know which is which to build the correct version I'm looking for. It would be a bit silly to find out afterwards that I've built the Alconbury version for my Spangdahlem project. 😉 But you could be right though: I've been in touch with someone that also told me these jets were from the same wing, went from Bitburg to Spangdahlem and later to Alconbury and were swapped around sometimes. However, I would like to know if the green band on the engines were for
  13. And Italeri manages to create an even bigger confusion... They replied to me today stating that the correct decals for the B (Spangdahlem) version is serial 40520! They've sent me the exact same image that they've sent to Jan_CZ but now it is named "1375 RB-66B versione B laterale.jpg" instead of Jan_CZ's image named 1375 RB-66B versione C laterale + numer..." This would mean that the instructions, boxart and picture sent to Jan_CZ are all wrong and: - 40520 is the Spangdahlem version. - 40543 is the Alconbury version. - The boxart is incorrect.
  14. Mail sent for the: 72-093: -EB-66 (2 complete schemes) 19th TECS, Kadena AB Okinawa 1970 -and- 39th TEWS Spangdahlem AFB Germany Aug 1972 $7
  15. I've sent an e-mail to Italeri for clarification and will post their reponse here when I get it.
  16. That is really excellent news! Thanks! 🙂 I'm not in any hurry, so I'll patiently wait for the re-release.
  17. Let's revive this post. 🙂 As my search for this sheet has been in vain, I'd like to inquire here. Is there anybody here that has this sheet in his/her posession, is not going to use the decals for the F-100F 58-1226 (early Wild Weasel) and would be willing to trade these? If anyone knows an online store that still has these in stock, that would also be very helpful. Thanks for any help! This is the one:
  18. Thanks! Do you also have the preview from the B version? Because that is the one I'm really looking for. 🙂
  19. Thanks! Would indeed be great if you could post a scan from the Italeri answer here. 🙂 Do I understand correctly that: - 40520 is the Alconbury version? - 40543 is the Spangdahlem version? - The boxart is correct?
  20. An old post, but did you ever manage to find another sheet you were looking for? I'm asking, because I'm looking for the decals with markings for the Douglas EB-66E 54-0531/SP based out of Spangdahlem and I've been unable to find these. Do you perhaps have these in your spares and if so, is there any chance to obtain these from you?
  21. I think this might be a long shot, but I’ve got another Spangdahlem puzzle that needs some help solving. 😊 This weekend I’ve bought a 1:72 Italeri (1375) RB-66B Destroyer which has Spangdahlem decals included. After studying the instructions and decals carefully, I think that Italeri messed up the decal instructions. The instructions show that 4 versions that can be built: - 1: USAF, 363rd TRW, 4417th CCTS, Langley-Eustis AFB, Virginia, USA, 1969 - serial BB415/30415 - 2: USAF, 1st TRS, 10th TRW, Spangdahlem AB, Germany, 1964 - serial
