Man! Does this bring back memories! I remember when I was painting the original F-105. I was at that point dating the girl (woman now...) who was to become my wife of 45 years and counting. She dutifully stayed with me in the shop and pretended to be interested in the painting process. She hasn't been in my shop except for short visits since... Well, that's not entirely true; sometimes she helps with molding leading edge shells for customer's wings.

You have done a spectacular job, Randy, and I hope your "Thud" flies as well as mine did. If it does, you'll be a happy guy.

Attached is a photo of Marianne and me at a contest in Flushing Meadows in 1972. If you look closely, you'll see the top of the fin of my F-105. This photo - by the way - was taken by Bob Lampione!

Later - Bob

About half done with trim. Should be able to finish trim plus graphics tomorrow. Then a ton of inklines. Ugh.

 I was wondering about the green, but I get it now.  :)

Anti glair.  They painted them with clear lacquer in Germany and they shined.  Randy was smart to pick the 36th.  Most military planes are painted flat.

Anti glair.

Ken

 Yep, I knew that, most often anti-glare panels were done in black though. I just thought the green seemed an odd choice for the "Thud", until I saw the reference Randy is using. There are very few F-105 schemes to pick from that have much for color, Randy found a good one here.

More progress. Man I hate inklines. And I'm bad at them. Shame, that. And the pics aren't very good for some reason. Sigh...

Yes, I made the decals. They came out OK, mostly.

I hate rushing but i'm out of time.
