    User Name: T Bolt
    Name: Glenn
    Category: Advanced
    Kit: Revell F-84E Thunderjet
    Scale: 1/48th
    Accessories: SuperScale Decals

    This Jet was the personal mount of Col. Robert L. Scott when he was the commanding officer of the 36th Fighter/Bomber Wing at Furstenfieldbruck, Germany 1950-53. Col. Scott is better known for his adventures in China flying alongside the Flying Tigers, then commanding the 23rd Fighter Group under Gen. Clare Chennault after the AVG contract with the Chinese government was over.
    At Furstenfieldbruck, Scott was on the front lines of the Cold War, the base being seven air minutes from East Germany. Scott set a record in this aircraft, F-84E 49-2299, by flying 1000 hours in 1952, which was an amazing feat considering all the problems with the J65 engine.

    my apologies for missing this build Glenn, but it looks terrific. You've got a marvellous technique with the darkened panel lines which really set this scheme off.
