Description

 

This is Italeri's excellent 1/72 F-100D kit, with minor changes,

When they entered service with the Turkish Air Force, these ex-Royal Danish Huns started their career with the original users scheme which is highly weathered dark green overall.

The most visible difference to other D models is their wing tip RWR equipment.

Danish Huns also use different ejection seats, shorter fuel tanks and different engines. Also note the absence of fences on the wing.

 

 

They were dismantled from 1979.

Other minor changes and additions are;

  • Correction on brake chute flaps, they should be on left side only

  • RWR UHF and Bullpup Aerials at bottom of the nose

  • Doppler aerial

  • TACAN aerial

I also used Aires's excellent Cockpit and Wheel Bay sets for extra detailing.

 



For painting I used Molak and Humbrol enamels as a base colour, with tens of tones dark green. Adding different amounts of white and yellow, creates these shades.

As a final touch I used dry pastels for enhancing panel lines.
