    Kit: Heller RF-84F Thunderflash
    Scale: 1/48th.
    Accessories: Bare Metal Foil Co. decals and Scale Aircraft Conversions landing gear. Also removal of the raised panel lines and re-scribing them, scratch built the camera bay and seat beats made from lead foil.

    Here’s my second aircraft from the 107th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron in this Group Build.
    The re-scribing of all the panel lines was a first for me and many times during the process I thought I was in over my head, but it seems to have turned out Ok and I learned a few lessons along the way to make the next time I attempt it a little easier.
