Readers’ Gallery: Al’s Monogram 1/48 EF-105F Thunderchief

Forum member Al (Pruz) posted pictures of his excellent EF-105F. Great work Al!

Well, it’s now finished!

I’m not really a camouflage kind of person so this came out nice for one of my very few attempts ever.

The Eduard cockpit came out really well. I applied Micro Flat varnish (it wasn’t!) and then a wash of Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna and Black oil paint and Turpenoid to flatten and weather the bright decals and sharkmouth.

I can say that this entire build has been a pleasure. Even though we may be living in the golden age of modelling, they don’t make ’em like this anymore.
