54-0112 JF-105B-2-RE Thunderchief
1/72 Scale Hasegawa
Republic produced three F-105s (RF) for the recon mission, hence the flat panels on the nose,  but the
USAF didn't want them.  They were redesignated as JFs and used by Republic for testing the many
modification/upgrades to the Thunderchief. The JFs usually carried flashy paint schemes during their
career. Scrapped Oct. 1975

The Hasegawa kit is okay. Raised panel lines which I sand off to make it look more like a Factory
promotional Desktop. The Area Rule fuselage looks too pronounced in the nose area and the canopy
profile is totally wrong and no way to fix it.
