On my list for sure.  Used to love seeing those things take off out of Hill AFB as a kid.

I hope this is good.  My best reference for F-105 development to date is Robert D Archer's The Republic F-105 "Thunderchief" which is from 1969...

I think I ended up with most of the pieces of that.  (Various Classic Wings volumes.)

Maybe more on the early F-105? Maybe not.

It's Specialty Press, not Schiffer. The layout is not that bad from my point of view. But quality standard (thickness of paper, reproduction of photos...) is not as good than during the «golden   age» of SP between 2002 and 2008 (X-15, B-36, XB-70, pusher fighters, Us Air Force prototypes...)

Slightly off topic (sorry) but is there a photo somewhere with all the Century Fighters (100 101 102 104 105 106) flying in formation ? kudos if YF-107 among them...

"Not that bad"? Bloody hell, the book's layout is exemplary good! No nausea-causing raggety-baggety-right.

I got this book on order with Amazon. I can't wait to read this one. Specialty Press book lay-out is really nice and never had any problems with the photos. Century Jets is a good read.
