F-84f finished just in time

I had to replace the stars and bars on the side due to one of them moving. I stripped the decal and the paint back using 600 wet and dry and then resprayed the primer and the final coat. t went very well.

The final outcome wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I really do have trouble with aircraft. I seem to make a series of stupid mistakes and have to be always making good rather than enjoying the process. I had to cut some more red line decal because Imessed up putting that on. I have touched up the join in the back coloured stripe decal but it doesn't look good so i will re-do that after Colchester club tomorrow night. Also, I managed to lose the minor main gear doors so had to make them of plastic card. Still it looks good from Aaron's 4 feet standard so its one more aircraft done and back to the Morser. I will keep trying - I have an RS Models Do-17 to do next so we shall see how I get on there.

I'll be interested to see how you get on with the RS Do-17. They make several kits I'd like, but due to the price, I haven't bought one yet.

Dave -
What kit (company) did you build this F-84F from? Was the canopy already in 3 sections or did you cut it from a single piece?
