Item Description:

This sale is for an old used desk model. It is all metal and it shows heavy finish wear in areas with some oxidation and raisedspecks in the finish along with tarnish. There is some heavy oxidation along the top of the fuselage. The decals show wear, the plastic canopy is discolored and cracked.

The model is named a Republic F-105 Thunderchief. The back fin has the Topping Models decal on the underside. The jet measures 15.5" long from nose to tail. The wingspan is about 8.5" across.

This belonged to a Mr. Theodore Francis Dieck. He was in the US Army Air Corps / Air Force from 1941 to 1966. He was a navigator on a B29 bomber. He went into pilot school but mother & father separated so he dropped out of flight school and took six weeks off. Shortly after returning got back into flight school where he did get his pilot's wings. He retired a Lt Col with the tactical air command.

There is a story that at age 23, he was on a mission taking weather photos at the same time the bomb was dropped at Hiroshima and he actually had pictures of the bomb's mushroom cloud. The next day military personnel came and confiscated all of his photos and equipment and he never saw them again. This was told to me by his son and daughter which I purchased these items from. I cannot verify this story but wanted to relay it as it was told to me as a part of his legacy.

I also have other items from him up for sale in my other sales.
