1:72 Scale. Length: 8". Wingspan: 6.25"
In 1971 the 182nd Tactical Fighter Squadron of the Texas Air National Guard at Kelly Field, San Antonio began receiving their F-100Ds. Most Super Sabres of this period were being used in the Vietnam War, but these aircraft came from the 48th TFW at RAF Lakenheath in England and the 20th TFW that was leaving RAF Wethersfield for RAF Upper Heyford, and re-equipping with the F-111. The 182nd TFS flew the F-100 from 1971 until 1978, when they were retired. Eight of the 182nd TFS F-100s, including 0-53669 (55-3669), were converted to QF-100D pilot-less drones.Realistic panel lines

The North American Aviation F-100 Super Sabre was a single-engine jet fighter that served with the U.S. Air Force and the Air National Guard. First flown on May 25, 1953, the F-100A entered operational service with the USAF in September 1954. It was capable of supersonic speed and made extensive use of titanium throughout the aircraft. During the Vietnam War, the F-100 flew extensively over South Vietnam as the primary close air support aircraft until it was replaced by the subsonic Vought A-7 Corsair II. It was also used by the air forces of several NATO nations and other U.S. allies. The F-100 was retired from service with the USAF in 1970 and by the Air National Guard in 1979..
