The F-105 carried those internally, that was the design basis for the Thud. While the Hun would use an inboard wing pylon.

:hmm: So a more effective display to have it on a Hun then, unless there's a Thud kit with an open bomb bay. I'd be happy to build either as they're great looking aircraft.

The USAF communications base down the road from had both as gate guardians untill a few years back - it was a shame that they scrapped them.

I’m surprised that the gate guards were scrapped and not shipped to the US or sent to a museum.

The Monogram F-84F comes with a nuclear shape, doesn't it? Would that work with an F-100 also?

Yes, the F-84F and F-84G kits come with a Mark 7 bomb. That type was carried thru the early 60’s by tactical fighter with the nuclear mission tasking, including the F-100.

Hmmm, I would be interested only I've already built at least one of every type of Century Series. I even did a number of them for different countries. I don't know what other variants or countries that fit in my collection that I could do.

You bet! Added to the list.

I have the even numbered ones, 100, 102, 104, 106.
Building a kit from your stash is like cutting the head off a Hydra, two more take it’s place.
