    Hello Gang,

    I'm getting ready to start a 1/32 F-105D that I like to build in the markings of 1st Lt. Karl Richter. From what I have gathered, he flew 59-1766 while reaching his 100th mission mark and his Mig-17 kit. Also, on that fateful day Karl was flying 62-4334. I have yet to find a decent shot. So, i though I broaden my search and ask others for some help. Any help will be greatly appreciated :salute:

    Mike

    I've got several books about the F-105 and the Vietnam air war. Unfortunately, I don't get home until Wednesday, but if nothing pops up until then, I'll start looking.

    I don't know if later versions of "And Kill Migs" by Lou Drendel has any pics, I know Ricter is mentioned several times - I found this on google.

    Guys, thanks for the input. I don't have hardly any books on Thud. At least, not a one that include much about Vietnam era. So, Geo any help is a good deal for me. The group build I join will go to the end of year, so I can wait til Wed ;)

    FlyboyJ, thanks for the info on the book. I will try to see if I can find a copy of And Kill Migs.

    And Kill MIGs is one of the books I have so I'll check that one first.

    There are a couple drawings, but out of some ten books on the F-105 I have, I don't recall a photo oh his bird. If you watch "Yhere is a way" USAF Vido on the 105, I think you may see it. I know Lt.Ed Rasmuis taxi in and Ricter if covered in the film. He was just beginning his second tour I believe . You can get it on youtube youtube "there is a way" f-105

    Donivanp and Geo, that's some good work the info guys. I sure do appreciate it. Don, I saw that clip recently and it is awesome. It does have Lt. Richter's footage, but not around his jet, however, it still very cool clip. I wish there was more :)

    I asked on a couple of face book groups, this was all I've found so far.
