1/48 scale Tamiya
by Mike Williams
1/48 scale F-84G Thunderjet is available online from Squadron.com
Here is my Tamiya 1/48 scale F-84G Thunderjet.
I built it straight from the box as this is all is needed. It is a great
kit as regards to fit of parts and details.
Cockpit detail is very good with nothing being left
One ingenious additioin to the kit from Tamiya is the metal ball nose
weight that is incorporated into the kit construction, thus saving this
bird from being a tailsitter!
Ther is an option in the kit of having the nose gun bay open with a
fully detailed gun bay included, however, i feel this spoils the lines
of the completed model if opened.
I chose the most colourful of the 3 decal options that are included in
the kit. It is aircraft FS-454 "Four Queens" of the 58th FBS in Taego
Paints used were Alclad II Polished Aluminium for the overall airframe
and Humbrol enamels for the landing gear and anti-glare panel on the
fuselage spine. Wheel bays were painted with Tamiya acrylics.
I really enjoyed building this model and it is a good addition to my
I hope you like it!
