ProModeler F-84 done!

Finished number 3 for this year. I am now ahead of last years total production by 50% and have added another 50s jet to the shelves.

After spending a few years building Monogram 1/48 Century Jets his was a great kit. It went together perfectly. Well engineered, fit was spot on, detail pretty reasonable. The only problem I had was the decals cracked, not because they were old, but because they just wouldn’t come loose from the backing sheet. But once I learned to soak the bejeezus out of them… well 50+ stencils later.  I’d recommend this kit if your into 50s jets.

Grubbed this one up a bit, even though it has a metal finish I’m sure working birds in Korea weren’t very shinny.  Started with the oil wash described in a previous post and finished up with pastels.  I’m finding I like using them more each kit I build.  Then a coat of Testors Dullcoat.  A well worn workhorse.
