Really had a blast building the Revell 1/48 F-105G Thunderchief “Wild Weasel”. The first time I saw the lines of the Wild Weasel variant of the F-105G Thunderchief, it was love at first sight. It was a testament to the United States way of building their military aircraft up from World War II to that era, a large frame to fit a powerful engine.
Just finished reading Jean Edward Smith’s Eisenhower in War and Peace and I have to say that it was a fine enough book that I couldn’t put it down. I’ve been on a World War II book reading binge these past few months and seeing that it had a good rating on Amazon I decided to pick it up. I surely wasn’t disappointed, Mr. Smith’s book is one of the most comprehensive articles written on President Eisenhower. This book is based on personal diaries, first hand interviews of those closely associated with President Eisenhower and recently unclassified documents. Just to show how timely the book is. It’s quite a long book (766 pages) so be prepared to rest your eyes a lot.
