    I was planning, in time, to turn them into two Wild Weasels, the F-105G would become s/n 63-8313 and the F-100F, s/n 58-1213, which was part of the group (I think) of F-100F-20-NA's numbered between 58-1205 to 58-1233, don't know if she was actually picked by the Dempster Committee, but she's in that batch though...for Wild Weasels.

    F-100F 81213.jpg

    Was first thinking about F-100F-11-NA s/n 56-3813 for the Super Sabre kit, but I can't find any decals for Soul Sister, 306th TFS -SD, which I think flew a number of Misty operations, later with 416th TFS -SE...

    F-100F 56-3813 b.jpg

    Anyhoo, the search goes on....

    You could maybe paint the nose art old chap - but the 'burnt' metal rear end will be a challenge !

    You can find her, Soul Sister, on sheet 72-083 from Wolfpak Decals, but unfortunately.....it's the wrong scale! :( Gonna toss them an email to see if they'll print her in 1/48...

    True indeed old chap....that'll be a true challenge!

    It sure will, but not impossible if 'transparent 'paints are used over a metallic finish, as car and motorbike modellers do on exhausts.
    I took these pics especially for modelling, 'just in case' I get around to doing a F-100 some day - hopefully they'll be of some help.

    Nifty vid. There was an article in an oooooold issue of Fine Scale Modeler that showed the use of liquid mask over the silver before the "tarnished" areas were applied. The look was very effective.

    Have to say that, Trumpeter's F-100F cockpit is far superior to the HobbyBoss' F-105G one. Think that I'll try to paint the F-100F and replace the F-105G one, with a suitable Eduard set....

    I'm tempted to try those AM cockpits from Aires, I like the details, but the painting can be a pain in the *rse...at the same time, I like those ready painted, self-adhesive from Eduard, side panels as nice as they are painted....lack the details of the knobs, switches etc, etc...
