F-84G Thunderbirds

Built completely out of the box. Foiled using Microscale foil glue and kitchen foil of varying weights. The foil around the exhaust was treated with bleach, pennies, and fishing weights to develop the heat affected zone. All graphics are painted on using Maketar Kabuki paper and my Silhouette Cameo3. This plane represents the 1954 show season (albeit without the country and Thunderbird logos because I haven't mastered making my own decals yet if you know what I mean ;) )The only decals are in the cockpit and the no-step lettering on the wings. Paints are MCW(Model Car World) acrylic lacquer for the plane and Vallejo acrylics in the cockpit.

Must have been a bunch of work to foil the maschine!

It took alot of practice before i got it to look respectable for sure. I have maybe 2 full weekends involved in it. I chose this plane from my stash to do first because it has alot of straight lines. No tight corners on wingtips to do the first time out :)
