I also decided to participate this GB with a wonderful model of F-84G Thunderjet. From adds I have only Eduard's PE interior kit, I believe that the most interesting part of the building process will be painting, I'm going to use from 3 to 5 different metallic shades to make a panel effect.

Which markings are you going to use if you don't mind me asking?

 

Happy Modeling!

Thanks for watching  my build guys,

I'm going to make the plane with kit's markings and specially for that I found that photo to be sure that it was a real plane.

Teresa, I saw your work and I want to notice that you have  a wonderful progress so far,

I will be interesting to compare our two models in the end of the GB ;-)

So, here  we go first photos of the process, because I have color PE interior I cut all plastic buttons and instruments and glued PE part on their places

After that I painted cockpit in interior green and put PE seat-belts, I used P-39's ones, because Eduard doesn't give them in its kit, I know that they should be different, but it's better than noting )))
