F-100 Aerobatics

This is the (quick and dirty) beta build for Carlos of the F-100F from the Thunderbirds.
It is doing aerobatics in front of my home.
Thank you so much Carlos.
Obrigadissimo!

Ätherwellen, you're perfectly allowed to to post your pics. This little Gripen sure fiits the theme of the thread!

Thank you W&P for the test build! I see you've corrected the position of the fin. The weather looks fine down under in Argentina! Perfect for a Thunderbirds show.

Here are 2 more files with all variants (early A, later A, C, D and F) in basic metal liveries. They replace a previous file and the As now have the correct early markings while retaining the same serials (US insignia on the nose + no US Air Force titles on the sides).

The SEA camo is available (USAF and French Air Force with different colors). The ones I haven't posted yet are the danish all green scheme and the Asia Minor scheme (Area 88, what-if IIAF and what-if IAF).

The danish F-100D/F later got an overall dark green scheme and ECM pods on the wingtips. When they were retired in 1981, some were sold to the Turkish Air Force which just changed the nationality markings.

Turkish Huns in metal livery and SEA camo may come later.

Meanwhile, here are some Puerto Rican what-ifs. In this alternate Earth, Puerto Rico became independent in august 1946, a month after the Philippines (the US keeps Guam). The US donated 12 F-100C and 2 F-100F in the early 60ies that were completed with 10 F-100D and another pair of two-seaters in 1968. The markings are the same as Cuba with red and blue reversed.

IRL, the 198th Fighter Squadron, Puerto Rico Air National Guard, flew Sabres (F-86E/D/H) between 1954 and 1967 and F-104C/D Starfighters from 1967 to 1975.

The Skyblazers were the USAFE demo team from 1949. Two of the 3 founding members, the Patillo twins, became part of the first Thunderbirds team, founded at Luke AFB in 1953. With the development of inflight refuelling, the Thunderbirds could more easily deploys outside the american continent and the Skyblazers were disbanded in 1962. The Thunderbirds performed their first european show in 1963. They briefly switched to the F-105 in 1964 before returning to the F-100 through 1968, the D version this time.

I'm still wondering why Trumpeter named their Skyblazers scheme "Thunderbirds base at European" and made it an F-100D while to my knowlege the Skyblazers only flew the earlier C version.

Lack of information or insufficient research?
To my knowledge your F-100 Skyblazers are the first in paper.
Are these updated models of the Tbirds and Sblazers?
Thank you Carlos!
