This is my F-100C Super Sabre, I added an Aires Cockpit Set. The Rocket Launchers and Napalm Pods are also made from resin. I used Gunze paint for the camouflage and Alclad II for the metal areas. All the decals came from the kit apart from the two graffiti decals that I stole from one of my F-14 decal sheets. I used oils to do the wash with and some other weathering.

This particular Super Sabre was piloted by Lt. Col. Frederich Fink. At the time he was C.O of 188th TFS, New Mexico ANG, that was based at Tuy Hoa Air Base, South Vietnam, 1968-1969. He has had " MISS MYNOOKIE " written on the lower forward left hand side, these decals I had to try and dig up out of my spares box.

I built this kit in under two weeks, it just fell together with next to no or very little putty being used. I really enjoyed this kit and can't wait to build another one quite possibly an F-100D or F.
