José, brilhante modelo!

Outstanding NMF finish with a fancy color tail. Overall a very attractive F-84

Fantástico

Joe,
Just an outstanding build. Your NMF looks super realistic with panel variations. And the cockpit is very well done. Are those homemade seatbelts and harnesses, kit, or AM?

As a personal preference I would have closed the two nose compartments, as opened they alter the lines of the aircraft to much. But like I said, it's my personal preference given the choice.

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!
