Trumpeter 1/48 scale, box number 02822, F-100D Thunderbirds kit is converted to Turkish Air Force F-100D Super Sabre.

Kit has totally engraved panel lines and rivets but they are very weak. Fortunately kits plastic is soft so i re-scribed and re-rivet all detail easily.

Movable surfaces like rudder, flaps/slats can be build active position. I prefer closed slats instead of open because lack of detail.

Landing gear struts was detailed with some wire and streched sprue.

No canopy detail coming with kit. I added some Evergreen plastic .

Landing gear bay doors re-builded to make more accurate. I used some part of kit, Evergreen plastic and sprue.
