F-84G Thunderjet, Revell 1/48

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, here is my F-84G Thunderjet in Dutch colours. Except for the decals(from Dutch Decal), it was a completely OOB build. Sprayed with 4 shades of AK Extreme metal.

Great looking model Erik and I particularly like the photo with its sibling. Any recommendations for using Extreme Metal? I’d like to try it.

Well, a gloss black base and just spray away! AK extreme metal is fantastic stuff, it dries so fast that I masked other  panels for different  shades directly after spraying the first shade! It is really easy and forgiving stuff. 

 

Thanks for all the nice comments guys!!

The different shades of metal are really making the model stand out. One of the nicest NMF I ever saw.

A neat and great build.

Thanks! I used aluminium, dark aluminium, polished aluminium and for the exhaust area duraluminium.
