58-1155 F-105D-5-RE Thunderchief
Markings depict the aircraft when it was used for load testing by Republic at their Farmingdale plant.
58-1155 is the only 58-
Thunderchief that still exist and is the oldest surviving 'D' model. It currently
resides at the Armament Museum, Eglin AFB in S.E.A. colors marked as 59-1771, "Foley's Folley".
Finished with Plast-kote #387 Aluminum enamel. The markings were produced by me using Corel Draw
9 and printed with my Alps printer. I'm not sure about some of the markings as there are only a few
B&W photos around of this aircraft, in this scheme, and no photos of the upper and lower wing surfaces.
I think it looks cool anyway.
A color photo of this aircraft has risen!! The white on the fuselage and tail, without the rudder, should
be a pale yellow. This model will not be changed. Too much work. The stand is a copy of an original
factory stand.
