62-4412 F-105F-1-RE Thunderchief
When Monogram originally released this kit I did it silver with the gear down and
pilots. Basically out of the box. It wasn't one of my best modeling jobs so it was
relegated to laying in a box along with some other early rejects. I figured I'd do it over
as a desktop. Serials were drawn with Corel and printed with an Alps printer.
Remainder of the markings came from spares box.  Finished with Plasti-kote 387
Aluminum.  
62-4412 assigned to the 4520 CCTW, Nellis AFB, 11 June 1963. I'm not sure it ever
wore the tail markings but they look neat anyway. She crashed on the 17 January
1966 at Tyndall AFB, FL.  I do not know the details of the crash, unit it was with or
the fate of the crew.
