Trumpeter F-105G

Recommended Posts

 

I've been a long time lurker (years). Now that I'm retired and things have settled and I have a modeling area again, so, I thought I would join in.

 

I'm not going to get too carried away but there's a set of Aries Seats coming too.

 

This thing is big! I've wanted to build one of these since Trumpeter released it, so now was the time.

Welcome to LSP!    :post1:

 

 

Yes, the ol Thud is pretty amazingly big in 1/32nd.   Looking forward to progress!  Good news you got a hold of some of Ernie's gear too

you might want to look into the GT resin corrections. i used an older resin set thats long OOP.

I do like a good thud. Shame I never got to see one fly, they were retired before I was born!

Welcome Denders to the GB and LSP, both great places to be! I’ll look forward to seeing your model build over the long weeks ahead. :huh:

Thanks folks!

 

I've been looking for a review or something that describes what the GTR resin fin, rudder, etc. parts correct. Or more like what is wrong with the Trumpeter plastic. My google foo has not been successful.

the nose is too pointy and the fin is wrong in chord in the kit.

i have seen kits oob, but with the corrections it looks way more like a Thud

Okay, I found comments by Thierry Laurent and I've ordered the GTR resin set. And I found Squadron had a great price for the Avionix Wheel set. And the Aries Ejection Seat set has arrived. Now to get to work.

A heads upon the AM resin nose replacement. I've disappointedly discovered the resin nose profile (at least the one I have) doesn't match the profile of the forward fuselage. Joining the two results in an odd transitional profile. There is/was a pic of this issue on a LSP build, but I can't seem to find it now. I'm dealing with this issue currently on my 105F build. If I could have a do over, I'd use the kit nose. For my 105D build, the only resin I'll being using is on it are a seat and the ventral fin. Anything else not worth the hassle IMHO.
