Group Build Description:
Hello and welcome to the Wild Weasel 2023 campaign, a campaign to celebrate the dangerous and vitally important SEAD role in modern aerial warfare.
Any aircraft of any nationality, any scale and any time period as long as it’s armed for or designed for SAM killing or Jamming. To encourage a variety of builds, I’m also including electronic warfare aircraft in the campaign.
Partially started builds, up the usual 25%, will not only be allowed but positively encouraged! Let’s see some shelf queens finished.
Post as many build photos and updates as you like. The more the merrier.
Event Details: (Remember to click “Going” if you want to join the build!)
Completion Award: I’m no graphic artist, but I’ll have a go at creating a medal. If anyone fancies volunteering with suggestions, I’ll gladly accept the help!
A Note about Awards: The following text is a reminder that in order for people participating and finishing their projects to receive a badge on their forum profile, they will need to provide their account username to the group build leader by the completion date of the build. The leader will then provide this list to the site admin who will bulk award the badges to those users who have finished the group build. If you don’t provide your username or finish the project on the timetable the leader has setup you will not be able to receive an award.
Both are great kits, the Thud is a good one. It’s the archetypal Wild Weasel.
I’m probably going to do Leo Thorsness’ MoH F-105F using the old Monogram kit. Bit easier to back date that one as the scabbed on ECM kit wre moulded as separate parts.
I’m also tempted to do a Desert Storm Tornado with ALARM’s, but I’ll see how I’m doing for time with other projects.
I think so. It’s got some kind of targeting system under the nose, which I’d think would fill the role of a HARM targeting pod. But who knows. Pretty sure it doesn’t have ECM capability off the factory floor, though?
Well, I’m pretty over booked for the year already. And one of my dreams is finishing an old Airfix F-105G Wild Weasel. But it’s way too far gone, fuselage assembled and mostly painted, to enter here. But there’s an Italeri 1/72 F-4G Wild Weasel whispering in my ear.
