F-84 G Thunderjet, Tamiya in 1/48 scale
Hi, here is a “walkaround” on my F-84 G Thunderjet from Tamiya, it is a good kit, like almost
all Tamiya – kits it is free from trouble.
My intention was a korean war fighter bomber, the kit decals look great on the sheet, leave them there ! It is not new, that they are way too thick, i had to learn this on my own 🙁
rescue came from the also very good Revell/Monogram kit, i used the decals for a
“G” from the Royal Netherlands Airforce, the aircraft was on inventory by the 311. Sqn.
Volkel airbase in july 1953 ( Revell did this research).
After all, these markings are a good idea, because most of the “G” models were given
to allied airforces.
I did this kit along a Revell F-86 D in the last summer but made some “readjustments some
weeks before, the round access panel on the canopy is still undone !
Colors are from the Humbrol and Revell range, i did not want a highly polished one, so i used
HU 11/RV 90 +/- a few drops black for the differend metal shades.
