"F105D Thunderchief"
semalevik (Russia)
Pretty simple model, easy to assemble. Excessively large rivet on the surface. Mismatch in the prototype or in the assembly diagram for the prototype in aluminum. Canopy and fuselage mismatch. Lack of technical inscriptions in decals for pylons. Mediocre decal on the dashboard. But it seems that in 72 scale without an alternative model.

The F-105 evolved from a project begun in 1951 by Republic Aviation at Farmingdale NY to develop a supersonic tactical fighter-bomber to replace the F-84F. The massive F-105 was intended primarily for nuclear strike missions. The prototype first flew on October 22, 1955, but the first production aircraft, an F-105B, was not delivered to the USAF until 1958. The F-105D all-weather strike fighter and the two-place F-105F dual-purpose trainer-fighter were also built before F-105 production (833 aircraft) ended in 1964. F-105G aircraft were nicknamed "Wild Weasels" and specialized in jamming enemy radar and destroying surface-to-air missile sites.
