Here are some photos of my Monogram 1/48 F-100D in the markings of the 20th.TFW. This is one of my favourite models, as I made the small stencilling and unit flash and wing emblem myself, as there were not any accurate decals available at the time. comparing this kit with the new Trumpeter model I think the Monogram kit is the more accurate, although I've only seen the Trumpeter kit in photos.

I'd be interested to hear what other modellers think.

nice one mate!!

what paints did you use?

nice base as well.


Hi Richard,

As far as I can recall I used Xtracolor for the rear end, but I'm not sure about the aluminium colour . . .I built this model about ten years ago so the old memory fails me sometimes! I found the Xtracolor with various shades of brown and copper, coupled with pastels for shading gave me the desired effect on the rear fuselage.

When the F-100's of the 20th. TFW were based at Wethersfield the rear panels had not dis-coloured to the extent seen on later F-100's, and that's how I remember them when I watched from the perimeter fence during school holidays. . .Ah . .Happy days! :thumbsup::cheers:
