Well here we are , part 5 , the f-105 Thunderchief . Ive been dying to get to this one as its a proper beast of an aircraft . It was a huge machine , when it entered service it was the biggest , heaviest single seat single engined aircraft ever . It could carry a bomb load bigger than a b24 liberator and was supersonic at low altitude and mach 2 capable at height. Originally designed as a tactical nuclear strike aircraft it gained most notoriety as a bomb truck in vietnam . The kit is classic Monogram at its finest and dates from 1985 . Its beautifully detailed but with not a huge parts count , right up my street ! I intend doing it as an early model in natural metal as i feel it fits better with the century series era .
