Great post Blackkite!

Is there any explanation for the large radome on the model, compared to the small one in the scanned images?

They are the first and second iterations of the F-100B with ventral intake, which led to the dorsal intake F-107.

The model and the illustrations are quite interesting. They remind me of a picture I saw of a modified F-100 with the gunsite radar replaced by a more capable one, resulting in a bulged radome on the top of the inlet.

Some modeller says that this is a F-100J.
Excellent model!! However, I recommend remodeling the nose and the canopy.;)
Japanese explanation says that this model is a Tamiya (Italeri) 1/72 F-100J model completed in May 2017.
I want these model makers to work more seriously. Isn't it embarrassing to put such a model into the world? Investigation and study are crucial.

Excellent speculative drawing which made 6 years before.
The explanation of this picture is as follows.

The F-100J disappeared with a vision in the voice of the famous Prime Minister Kishi's crane.
Also with the bonus of the phantom AAM-2. Please take care that AAM-2 was for F-4EJ.
