HobbyBoss 1/32 Republic F-84G
By Henrik Redin
Here is something American in a French suit. The Republic F-84G. All in natural metal finish. Worn and beaten by the hands of time. The brand is HobbyBoss, not yet a "Tamiya" quality model. But good enough for me. Make sure to choose the landing gear in white metal. The plastic ones is far to weak to hold the model up straight. The build went fine and I hope you all like the result.

As for paints, I used Gunze Olive Drab, Gunze Red 423 and Gunze Gloss Black H2 in 2 layers with wet sanding between the layers. Tiny layers of Alclad Airframe aluminium that was wet sanded with 12.000 grit, Polished Aluminium and duraluminium on various panels along the airframe and wings.
