On June 21, 1945 the 120th TRS was reconstituted and 11 months later re-designated 120th FS and assigned to the Colorado ANG. The 120th FS "Colorado Cougars" was stationed at Buckley Field, a section of Lowry AFB, Colorado and was awarded the history and honors as well as the Guidon (colors) of the former 120th TRS. In January 1961 the unit was once again re-designated, this time 120th TFS and in May 1968 went to Phan Rang AB, South Vietnam with their F-100Cs. When the 120th returned from Vietnam in April 1969 they re-equipped with the F-100D variant which they flew until April 1974 when the converted to the LTV A-7D.

North American F-100D Super Sabre

Designed as a high-performance evolution of the F-86 Sabre, the F-100 Super Sabre was first flown on May 25, 1953. This swept-wing aircraft was the first in the "Century Series" and the first operational USAF aircraft capable of supersonic speed in level flight. It was adapted for use as a fighter-bomber and was the Air Force's primary close-support aircraft through much of the Vietnam War. Despite its promise, the F-100 proved to be a dangerous aircraft, by the end of its USAF service in 1972, a total of 889 F-100s had been lost in accidents, claiming the lives of 324 pilots.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-100 Super Sabre is constructed almost entirely from diecast metal, with only the smallest amount of plastic used. The fuselage is almost seamless, with a hinged articulating canopy that opens for viewing of the cockpit interior. The engine intake has near-razor sharp edges with an unusually long pitot tube, and the surface surrounding the engine is correctly unpainted. The wing has crisp panel lines, hand-painted navigation lights and a complete set of ordnance including rocket, bombs and fuel tanks. Variants include the A, C and D; the D features a larger wing, aerodynamic fences on the wings and two types of refueling probes.
