1/72 PA149-100 Monogram Republic F-105D Thunderchief - Blue Box Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Second issue dated 1966. Nice quality kit from the older, modified 'Four Star' molds (see below). Includes drop tanks, bombs, opening canopy, pilot figure, ground crewman and boarding ladder. Molded in green, light gray and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals. NOTE: instructions are missing, so I have included the exploded parts diagram from the Four Star kit. There are differences, but you can easily built the kit from this. This is a fine time to outline the mold changes that Monogram made. The Four Star issue was much closer to the very early or prototype aircraft. For the 'Blue Box' issue Monogram did a very nice upgrade. The two rear-vision windows behind the cockpit were removed, the 'spring' for the ejecting pilot was left out, the revolving bomb bay and nuclear bomb was replaced with the new fuselage, two supersonic drop tanks and external bombs. The kit was molded in two colors and had new decals, both of which reflected the bombing role in South East Asia.
