Brian J Posted December 20, 2013 Share Posted December 20, 2013 I have been following the comments on the new 1/48 Hobby Boss Republic F-84F by modelers with a much keener eye then myself. The consensus seems to be that this kit is the best starting point for building up an accurate kit. AMS is producing some very nice resin correction sets to fix some of the major errors in the kit. I'd like to hear opinions on the following. Like many others (I suppose) I have several Monogram F-84Fs as well as a couple of Kinetic/Italeri kits, both of which have their own issues. Would it be reasonable to do some kit bashing starting with the Hobby Boss kit and using the best parts of the other two kits e.g. cockpit, landing gear, etc. I have the Quickboost corrected intakes as well. I seems to be a waste to get into a third generation of kits without making use of the others. On another note, has anyone heard of anyone producing a couple of (accurate) decal sheets for this new kit. I've always liked some of the markings from USAFE units.
