Hobbyboss 1/48 scale F-84F Thunderstreak kit with box number 81726.
All engraved panel lines but shallow. Especially rivet detail is very weak.
Cockpit detail is normal like most of 1/48 scale kit but glareshield is without details. Actually most visible parts of the cockpit !
Very few fitting problem generally. But attaching canopy to closed position is little difficult. Clear parts quality is really nice meanwhile.
There is no much detail in landing gear bays also struts. Nose strus is complete. No seperate nose wheel. This makes difficult to paint nose wheel.
Kit gives some photoetch parts for seat belts and spoilers.
More detail was mentioned on IN PROGRESS page.
