Lovely build and the MPC supplied markings are cool. It really looks like it's going somewhere in a hurry.

Nice work, I made one in the West German markings a couple of years back. I have an Italaleri Thunderstreak and Thunderflash in the stash and think that Airfix did a slightly better job. It's a type that really needs a modern kit in 1/72 releasing.

That's a remarkable job on that old kit. One of the few Airfix kits where the raised panel lines were possibly as dangerous as the rivets on FROG's Shackleton!

So, well done!

Cheers,

David

Thank you very much for your comments, gentlemen. They are much appreciated.

Skypirate: Thank you for the warning about the Frog Shackleton! :grin:

Agreed. The Later F-84s take up position on the wing of the P-63, MiG-19 and Super Frelon in the Squadron of Inadequately-Kitted Aircraft.

And needless to say, smashing build.
