    Thomas Lund got a reaction from Kagemusha in Melbourne hobby shops and aviation sights   
    Hi guys down under
     
    First of all, I hope you are all safe from those terrible fires !!
     
    I'll be going to Melbourne in late March for a conference, but plan to spend a few days on my own as I rarely get to go that far away from home. So are there any good hobby shops in Melbourne, any good aviation (or general history/war) sights? I know about the National museum, but anything else ?
     
    Anyone interested in letting me buy them a beer ?

    Ok - painting complete. Painted all markings except stencils (boy there are a lot on a jet) and the personal markings.
     

     
    But I do hate those rubber wheels. Only game in town is apparently the Fisher ones but I couldn't find a EU source. Ordering from outside the EU often results in a 20 EUR 'fine' (aka handling fee) plus 25% VAT and that would have brought it up to an unacceptable price. Good thing I speak 3D
     

     
    and a good friend with a 3D printer - awfull color, but a coat of primer fixed that

    Actually bought this one around april and started it immediately, but haven't gotten around to making a build thread. Dont have many pictures of the process, sorry, but this is from today.
     
    I really fell for this F-84 since it was good looking and it was flown by Robert Scott - ex-Flying Tiger and this plane carries the flying tiger insignia's too.
     
    The decals (Zotz) said to paint the wing tanks in a color matching the decals for the tail... fat chance I thought so I decided to paint the stripes. Quite a bit of work... one of those where you think "I should have invested in stocks in The Tamiya Tape Company". Done now, but a bit of clean up is required. I've painted the USAF legend and will paint the insignia and most other markings, except the stencils and a few other bits
