North American F-100D Super Sabre.
The North American F-100 Super Sabre is an American supersonic jet fighter aircraft that served with the USAF and a few other contries from 1954 to as late as 1979. As the first of the Century Series of USAF jet fighters , it was the first USAF fighter capable of supersonic speed in level flight. The F-100 was designed by North American Aviation as a high performance follow-on to the F-86 Sabre air superiority fighter.
About this creation

Missing the F-100 Super Sabre in my collection of RDAF aircrafts, I decided it to be my next LEGO model. I always hesitate to build models that all ready are represented with very good or even excellent versions, and in this case there are some brilliant versions from (Lego Pilot) Wayne, Ralph Savelsberg and in particular Cody Osell. Having seen Cody´s excellent model I decided to use the same wedge pieces for the nose section as he did, but everything else is my own design. Funny thing though is that we ended up using the same pieces for the landing gear wheels and the main fuselage section, although my version has a slightly (half plate) raised middle section, to give it a little more curve of the upper side. The wings however are very different. The rear wings are angled at exactly 45 deg to the fuselage, and built as one continuous plate. The main wings are also angled at nearly 45 deg, built individually, and attached with hinges inside the fuselage. Using this technique led to a very thin looking wing with a nice and clean leading edge. The model is equipped with two 450 US gal (1730 l.) droptanks and 4 AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles. The color scheme is chosen from a period in the mid sixties, when ESK 727 had their F-100s painted with the distinctive red nose and striping. A single aircraft painted this way can be seen at Danmarks Flymuseum in Stauning, Denmark. The model has no working features and is solely built for display.

About the RDAF North American F-100D Super Sabre:

As a successor to the F-84G, squadron ESK 727 received 17 F-100D and 3 F-100F in 1959. Two years later also ESK 725 and ESK 730 received 31 F-100D and 7 F-100F leading to a total of 58 fighter aircraft. The delivery of these aircrafts was part of the postwar Military Assistance Programme.
Due to a lot of incidents and accidents, many aircrafts were lost, and by the end of 1966 only 41 aircrafts remained, and because of the Vietnam war it was impossible get any replacement. In 1974 a new opportunity opened to buy 14 two-seater F-100F from USAF. After a number of modifications, to suit the Danish standards, these aircrafts were designated TF-100F.
In 1976 to 77 again a lot of planes were lost, this time because of bad service quality from the companies servicing the J-57 jet engine.
Over the past years a lot of changes and modifications was made to the F-100; Navigation system, bombsight, and weapon systems.
In august 1982 the F-100 Super Sabre flew for the last time, ending an era of 23 years with the Royal Danish Airforce.

Quoting jim mcdonough you have done it again !!!! truly an amazing model as already mentioned it looks so real,prob your best yet given the smooth lines of the fuselage hardly a stud to be seen.that nose cant have been easy,the wing swept back is a great feature (shame no pic on how you did that)trade secrets !!.all in all its just an awesome build built to perfection,detail is second to none as we now expect from a builder like yourself.most planes only look good from certain angles but this looks so cool in every pic and the tail again perfect how are you going to top this one cheers Jim
Thank you very much Jim! It`s so delightful to read a comment like this. Still missing a couple of planes in my RDAF collection so this one isn`t the last, but you never know how things turn out in the future, but hopefully I`ll be able to live up to my former standards. Thanks again Jim!

Quoting Per Bonde Hi Henrik. Thank you very much for building this one. Brings me back to my childhood with My brother. Airfix models and cards. Those were the days!
It was my pleasure building this Super Sabre, and I know exactly what you are talking about! I have built numerous Airfix, Revell, Tamiya etc. models in those days too, but only one have survived to this day. It`s a Handley Page Victor, British bomber from the cold war. I keep it in a box in the basement until further. I also have a deck of those quartet cards somewhere in a drawer. Fun memories, thank you Per!

Quoting Marty Fields Great model. I like how you did the fins on the drop-tanks.
Thank you very much Marty. The fins of the droptanks are quite large, so I think this solutions is quite good even though it isn`t symmetric.

Just spent this beautiful evening on the local tourist attraction Egeskov Slot, enjoying the nice gardens and museums with cars, planes, motorbikes and fire apparatus. Thanks for the extra smiley!

Quoting Blaine R. Great job shaping the nose cone. Another excellent build!
Thank you very much Blaine! I can't take full credit for the nose design, since the idea of using the two wedgepieces belongs to Cody Osell of Flickr, but nothing else is copyed from other builders. I put a great deal of honour in designing my own models from scratch, but didn't see any better solutions for shaping the nose than this.

Quoting Sven ;o) Oh you did it again XD You pulled off such an awesome Lego model. It really looks like a diecast replica of the real deal. Fantstic job in every detail my good friend!
Thank you very much Sven! I always strive to reach a great result, and I'm also quite happy about the outcome of this warbird. But telling me it looks like a diecast replica really made my day. Thanks again my friend!

Quoting Tom's MOCs Another terrific model! I remember having a soft plastic toy of this jet, about the same size as this, when I was a kid. The distinctive air intake on the nose stands out. Your technique described for the angling of the wings is superior to my solutions, so I will have to explore it. Your color detailing via decals/tape gives the model an exciting visual "kick."
Thank you very much for this great comment Tom, very much appreciated! I'm glad yuo like the colorscheme too, and it isn't fictional at all!
