62-4218 F-105D-25-RE Thunderchief
This Revell kit is molded to depict later Thuds with all the mods i.e. Cooling scoops, RWAH gear, nose
camera, etc. I wanted to make an early silver 'D' so all that stuff was removed. Since the kit comes
with camo markings and no markings for silver Thuds are available in this scale, all markings, except
the Stars & Bars, were drawn with Corel and printed with an Alps. Finished with Plasti-kote 387
Aluminum.  The base is a copy of a factory unit.


I always wanted to build a Thud loaded with 16-750 lb. Bombs. The kit comes with them so I loaded it
up.


62-4218 was lost on the 12 Nov 1965 near Udorn RTAB while serving with the 562 TFS/23 TFW.
While waiting to refuel, aircraft exploded due to catastrophic engine failure or detonation of one of
the Bombs. Cpt. W. Miller KIA.
