HobbyBoss 1/32 F-84E Thunderjet

By Jerry Richardson

My year ending build is the Hobby Boss 1/32 F-84E Thunderjet which I started back in the spring. I get slower with age.

I used the AMS Resin seat with bits & pieces from the Eduard PE interior set to enhance the cockpit a bit. Replaced the nasty rubber tires with a real nice set of resin wheels from Fisher Models. Painted with 3 shades of Alcald II.

This is my first HobbyBoss kit and I was amazed at how well it went together with very little putty used. A lot of the parts just more or less snapped into place needing just a touch of glue to secure them. The front wind screen just snapped down right into place and needed no glue at all.

All in all a fun build and am now interest in getting the "G" started.
