    Username: Vic Balshaw
    First name: Vic
    Category: 2 – Intermediate
    Scale: 1/48
    Manufacturer: Monogram
    Model Type: F-100D-45-NH Super Sabre 55-2796 – 511th Fighter Bomber Group, 405th Fighter Bomber Wing , Langley Air Force Base, Virginia. May 1959.

    Now I'm back from the warm and sunny tropical island of Bali full of 'Bintan' and smelling of coconut oil, this is third entry to the Cold War GB.

    This is a basic out of box build with minimal scratch building and enhanced by an Aero Master F-100D decal sheet number 48-781.
