Republic F-84E Thunderjet
Revell's 1/48 scale F-84E Thunderjet is
for less than USD$10.00
Here is my 1/48 scale
Republic F-84E Thunderjet based on the Revell kit
This model is a conversion of the F-84G from Revell into an early E-Bird.
After all the “hard work” of removing the canopy frames and creating of
rivets, I filled the air intakes at the bow and the receptacle door in the
leading edge of the wing.
I refined the model with two
sets from Aires: landing bays and cockpit. Both of them are of excellent
quality and can be highly recommended..
The finish of this model is
a mix of 50% Aluminium Testor's Metalizer and 50% Alminute Mr. Metal from
Gunze Sangyo. The airplane represents the Commander´s aircraft of a unit
The markings are from the
excellent sheet from Cutting Edge. I used another decal sheet from CE for
the maintenance markings.
