Great build and educational as well. I have been putting off my F-84F as it will be the 1st vac that i build...i did try one at around 12 and it's in the dumpster lol. Mine is an ID model like yours. Maybe it's time to take a break from ships as this was inspiring.

The balance of the hanging harness is just right.

What a great kit!

Side question, in the first picture, there is a kit of Magnum PI's 308 Ferrari.  Who is the manufacturer and what is the scale?  For decades I have been seeking a kit of it to go with my A-Team van and Miami Vice Lamborghini!

As I said, hypothical, as the Germans never fielded a radar that could work in a radome.  Here's a resin part that converts a Mosquito to that type, which did happen.

Sweet!  Since it's a hypothetical why not put a thimble nose on it.
