This just in from friend and fellow modeler Bill Dye, his model of a  1/72 scale model of the Republic YF-96A Thunderstreak prototype.  Heller fuselage, Italeri wings, HAWK kit top fuselage/canopy area.

Finished with SnJ Spray Metal (no base coat or primer but plastic polished with Micro Surfacer Polishing system from Micro Mark).

AWESOME!!!  Thanks for sharing it with us Bill!


  1. A lot of surgery, sanding, etc. but the SnJ made it ‘shine’. It’s a great product!
    Thanks for your comments.
