Republic F-84G Thunderjet in JRV part I

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

here's my latest model, first finished of dual build - HB's Thunderjet in Yugoslav markings.

It was relatively quick build, the only problem were missed Humbrol paint shades (one thing in the FS, the other in the can). Although I've heard about this problem, it happened to me for the first time :angry:

Anyway, it was paintbrushed and weathered using dry pigments. Decals are combination of "Lift Here" numbers and "Balkan Models" roundels and flags.

The only addition to the OOB build are tamiya seat belts and 2-component epoxy for navigation lights.

Reservoirs are Model Master aluminium metalizer, again paintbrushed...

Here it is, for your comments:

I said it before and I'll say it again! Excellent paintbrush work and a testimony a true gem can be built out of a cheap easy kit.
