CMK 4023 cockpit set


Tamiya 1/48 F-84G Thunderjet




Scott Van Aken


Cockpit set and control surfaces


You wouldn't think that a Tamiya kit would need a resin detail set. However, even the best kits can be improved. This particular set is for the super Tamiya 1/48 F-84G Thunderjet. It may also fit the ProModeler F-84E, though the instrument panel may be wrong for the earlier jet.

The set includes 12 resin pieces, a small fret of photo etch and a new clear vacuformed canopy. 

The resin is a cockpit tub, seat and control stick with the undercanopy bits also included. As a bonus, you get a complete set of control surfaces to replace those provided in the kit.

The etched fret is for the instrument panel, mirror, control knobs and the circular antenna that fits on the canopy.

Overall, it looks like a great little set that will surely add a lot to your Thunderjet.
