Semi Historical Hill AFB F-105D Skins

 

The 466th TFS, USAF Reserve, was lhe last operator of the F-105 Thunderchief. They flew their last mission before converting to the F-16A in 1984. Due to how

long they flew the 'Thud' and their proximity to Ogden Air Logistics Center, where many aircraft go to be repainted, they flew 3 Thuds in colors other than the traditional SEA camo. Those schemes (SEA Wraparound, European 1, and a one off Desert scheme based on the pattern of the first two) are represented here.

Also provided are black tailcode for the 466th ('HI') and 50 black serial numbers. Sorry only 50 as the Thud was getting rarer by that time. The first 10 serials are

historical with the first 3 being the ones used by the aircraft so painted. the other

40 numbers are redone TW serials spanning FY59-62.

This is not a completely accurate rendition, the pattern is different than T.O. 1-1-4

states for SEA Wraparound and Euro 1. What I did was to wraparound the stock skin, then

swap the colors (as was done IRL). I also did not do the nose art's for the aircraft

due to other commmitments, and lack of time.

Much credit goes to :

ludo.54m for his templates, which allowed me more freedom to color while keeping the

panel lines and rivets

Soulfreak, both for the idea and material support with references

TK for the stock bird and decals

the greater CA community for support and education over the years

Included in the mod are

Desert, Euro 1 and SEA Wraparound skins

my Expanded Squadronlist.ini, which puts 466th TFS as selectable in menu

the Photoshop templates I used to create this mod.

Installation

unzip the files, copy and paste to the appropriate folders. Allow merging of

Aircraft and Decal folders. Enjoy

 

Thank you for downloading this mod!
