Tamiya's 1/72 scale

Here is my 1/72 scale Tamiya F-84G Thunderjet.
I just added some details at the front wheel well to hide the seam in
there, I made hydraulic lines for the struts with fine cooper wire,
substituted the piece inside the exhaust with cooper tubing and
discarded the decal for the seatbelts, and instead I cut strips of
Tamiya tape to represent them.
This is my first attempt using the Alclad system. I applied it over a
coat of Future.
First I polished the plastic, then applied a coat of Future and after
that I applied the Alclad tones (Aluminum, Polished Aluminum, Steel,
Pale Burnt Metal and Chrome).
The markings come from the excellent Aeromaster decal sheet 72196.
