1/48 Monogram F-105F ( 1982 issue )


Recommended Posts

I got burned out on prop aircraft  so it was time to build some Jets for a while. I decided to start with the awesome 1982 issues of the Monogram F-105F . I have the Sam Slayer and Furball decals . Not sure what markings i will go with. I started with the landing gear first . I drilled a 1/4 depth hole in the main struts then super glued a stell pin so the gear wont bow or snap off. The nose strut the kunbs that hold the wheel on has been cut off and drill out that way the wheels can be painted and installed last with a steel pin .

Nose cone pitot replace with master brass pitot. I first glued the kit pitot on the nose cone. Once dry i cut the kit one off and carefully drilled the right size to fit. Piot on dry fitted for pic and will be installed last :)

One thing that model companies ALWAYS seem to miss out on is throttles . i also added so extra detail to the kit throttle area . The kit seats you dont get much of a area for mounting them to the cloor of the cockpit. I added so plastic to the floor for the seats to be glued to and the dry fit is perfect !

So when it comes to certain model i prefer to glue the wings on the fueloge halfs . I find it easier ti alppy pressure and have more control gluing the wings. There was a few gaps that was fix with brush Mrfinishing surfacer 1500 grey a few time on the wing root area . I apologize for boarding you with all my projecrts on here :)

I always find gluing on pylons after model finished to be a royal pain depending on the model . The Thud is one of them cause of how they mount and the size of the fuel pylon tank combo . So the outer pylon and center bomb rack was glued on then dried for a few days then i brushed on extra Tamiya thin cemment . Now for the fuel tank/ pylon i cut the pylon seperate from the fuel l tanks and glued them on the wings . Once dry and drilled holes for the pin for the location mount .

The WORST part on the Monogram Thud kits is the burner section. . It always has a step once glued on. So once glue was cured i used few different snadning sticks to file it down then Tamiya sanding sponges for final clean up. Still some more sanding to do but not much :)
