Two scales: Trumpeter F-100C Super Sabres in 1/72 and 1/48 scale

Trumpeter has followed its big 1/32 F-100 with some smaller “Huns” in 1/48 and 1/72 scales. The first variant issued in these popular scales is the fighter-bomber F-100C. Trumpeter recognized the key differences between the C model and the more numerous D version – a different wing without landing flaps, and a different fin. This review covers both kits, which are nearly identical (except for size). Differences are in the level of surface detail, a few additional small parts in the 1/48 scale kit, and the decals. Paul Boyer built the 1/72 scale Hun; Jon Hergenrother built the 1/48 scale kit.
