1/48 Revell F-84G

December 13, 2012 · in Aviation · · 7 · 4.6K

One of my first jets was this re-release of 's F-84G. Was a real treat to build, parts fit extremely well and this model required no putty at all. Built OOB and the only thing I added were belts. If you like decals this is the kit for you, lots and lots of stickers are enclosed, but they went on quite well. Not a weekend build but fun none the less.

  1. Good lookin' jet, Tom...excellent work on the details and panels.

  2. Beautiful job...your paint is excellent!

  3. Really nice job on that kit Tom, very nice job on the NMF. I have to say though there sure are a hell of a lot of decals on that bird. How many hours did you spend putting them all on? Really excellent work on your part too, I don't see any silvering or film in the pictures. Really very nice.

  4. I don't know why someone gave an obvious "10" a "7" (unless they are "pot hunting" for a Tamiya P-51 and decided to sandbag the competition), but I gave this the "10" it deserved.

  5. Gentlemen, thank you so much for the kind comments. The paint was Tamiya rattle can gloss aluminum, the panel lines accented with a pit pin, the rest was hand painted with MM acrylics and enamels. The decals were dipped in Future and they sat down extremely well. And yes it seems I spent more time on decals then actually building this bird. Final finish was Testors semi-gloss lacquer, again in rattle can. It really was a fun build and I can't say enough about how well the kit went together, Revell really got it right on this one.

  6. Beautiful job Tom. Another of my "stash" models. I really dig these early jets! I've been on a 50s jet fighter jag recently.

  7. I have to echo the sentiments of the other posters here. Very nicely done. It has the classic look and you did an outstanding job on this model.
