In-Box Review
54mm
USAF F-105 Pilot

by: Rowan Baylis [ MERLIN ]


Originally published on:
Historicus Forma

Carter & Crowley's F-105 pilot is surely designed to accompany Trumpeter's 1/32 scale Thud. Cast in beige resin, the kit consists of a 3-part figure, plus a base.

The pilot is in a casual pose, dressed in a flight gear and parachute, carrying his helmet, which includes a neatly cast oxygen mask tucked inside. Details of the uniform and equipment are nicely done. Some clean-up will be needed where the casting blocks are removed, and the fit of the arms to the body is ok, but some trimming and filler will be needed.

A helpful set of painting instructions is included, but builders will do well to refer to photos to really make the most of the detail provided. This is a simple kit, but one which will compliment any 60's USAF aircraft in this scale.

Thank you to MMD-Squadron for kindly supplying the review sample.

I've been modelling for about 40 years, on and off. While I'm happy to build anything, my interests lie primarily in 1/48 scale aircraft. I mostly concentrate on WW2 subjects, although I'm also interested in WW1, Golden Age aviation and the early Jet Age - and have even been known to build the occas...
