1/48 Republic RF-84F Thunderflash - Finished

Recommended Posts

Hello all!
Here are some photos of one of the models that i finished this year. This model was subject to publication on the May 2017 issue of Airfix Model World.
As referred on the title, this is the well known TanModel kit. The first issue. The fit required some tweaking and was problematic around the camera bay windows.

The paints used were:
 - X-1 Black as a base for the metalwork;
 - Fuselage colours from the Mr.Hobby range;
 - Alclad2 lacquers;

 - VAllejo Model Color generic colours;
 - Satin varnish from the Vallejo Model Air range

Hope you like it!

Hello!

Thanks for the kind replies!

 

 

Wow, stellar job! How did you find the kit? I had a lot of issues with missing surface detail on mine...

 

Hi!

I found the kit quite inconsistent. The panel lines faded towards the edges and the ejection gates were present on very starnge places.

The landing gear legs were also very tricky to install.

On the other side, they presented several great building solutions.

 

My best regards!
