Cutting Edge Corrected Fin and Rudder


32150 / 32152




Trumpeter 1/32 F-105 D/G Thunderchief


Scott Van Aken

It is well known that most Trumpeter kits have some problems with the shape of certain parts of the kit. In the case of the very nice, but very large F-105 kits, the fin is just not exactly right. Cutting Edge has provided a very nice resin replacement for both the D and the two seat G kit. Both sets are quite similar so I've just shown the one for the D in the image above.

You get the full fin, a separate rudder and the small intake that goes at the base of the fin. These parts are superbly molded and an exact replacement for the kit parts. What is really nice is that the resin pour join is very thin for the fin and the rudder parts. This makes it super easy to remove the parts. A bonus is that clean-up is also quite easy. If you have expended all that time and effort into getting the big Trumpeter 105, you really should consider adding this correction set to it as well.
