1/48 F-105 upgrade needs

Recommended Posts

Hi,

What do you F-105 modelers need from the AM community that is not offered?

 

Looking at exhausts and an F-105 F conversion for Hobby Boss kits to start with. 

 

Thx

Any parts for monogram? Maybe a 1 piece closed exhaust petals set.

 

A better-fitting radome, with a more scale pitot tube, will go a long way to fixing the odd look of the Monogram nose. Based on standing next to and under the real thing while holding a built Monogram kit, I personally don't think the nose itself is off as badly as some might suggest. 

 

A B conversion would be nice, too.

I second this motion!

Speaking of the ghost of Monogram, hoping they will reissue the standard D model again. I don't mind the raised lines.

Intake covers.

 

You can save doing the intake covers by doing the full length (seamless) intakes :rolleyes:

O.K. not an easy undertaking, but it's doable! XMM already realized a few more or less complex intakes - Draken, Etendard, Skyray....

 

Best regards, Jens

I agree with much of what has been suggested already.  I would be heavily interested in conversions for the B and for the F.

And some intakes for the Hobby Boss kit would be supremely welcome.  Even if they are multiple pieces, it would be a vast improvement over the empty void.

Hobby Boss' F-105? Well what about the missing centerline pylon for the typical load of one MER with six M117 bombs? OK it is a relatively easy scratch build, but it WOULD fill a gap.

Don't forget, Master has an amazing brass pitot!

I like intake, and exhaust covers.
