1/72 XF-84H Thunderscreech


Recommended Posts

Hi there

 

Here is my recently completed Thunderscreech. The shiny finish was done using Alcad Airframe Aluminium misted over a coat of Polished Aluminium. The stars and bars came from Fantasy Printshop and the rest of the decals from the kit. The wingtip pitot tubes came fra Albion Alloys slide fit tubing.

 

Regards Toby

Your metal finish is fabulous! A great looking model.  What is the kit like to build?

Brilliant, not the original but your build of it. According to an article in Aeroplane magazine the noise it made actually made people physically sick. 

 

Thunderscreech it was.

I read that once that while on a ground-based engine test a technician working inside a rearby parked C-47 went in to some sort of convulsive fit.

I love the Thunderscreech - call me crazy but I really, really want to hear what it actually sounded (felt) like - and this is a fantastic representation. Great build!

Don't click this link-- that way lies madness a kind of "meh" sound recording.

 

High volume through a premium sound system may help recreate the physical sensation.  😎

 

You've captured a rare bird, Planbuilder.  Good show.
