G'day Chums,as requested by the Magnificent one here's the Hobbyboss 1/72nd F 84 E that I finished in the last LTAT GB.

I'd forgotten about the Revell issue of the Monogram 1/48th F 84 F that I did a tinfoil finish on many moons ago and gave away to a visiting Dutchman who took a shine to it back in 2012.

These jokes really just write themselves sometimes, eh?

Excellent models all around, gents!

Remembered that I built this Academy 1/72 Thunderjet back in 2016. 77th FBS 20th FBW RAF Wethersfield 1953

Looking forward to having a Thunderstreak to go with it from the same squadron & wing.

Then this little beauty that I was very fond of. All out of the box but still had to give all the panel lines a slight deepening with an olfa scriber.

Thanks Enzo! ☺️ Yes, Modeldecal sheet No.50. 

 

Thought so.  We're looking at decals that are 40 years old, quite thick (to modern standards) and yet still produce an excellent result.

Even back in 2016 I know I had to clean all the yellow scum (decomposed carrier film) off the decals as they came off the decal sheet. Same when I built my black Mirage 5. They're fine once theyre cleaned & applied. Much more wary about the old microscale decals.

Ive used 40 year old microscale decals not too long ago. If you put a coat or two of decal film on them that should do the trick.
