1/48 scale F-84G Thunderjet is available online from Squadron
This is Tamiya's 1/48 scale
F-84G Thunderjet that I have just recently completed in US Air
Force Markings on an aircraft based in Taegu, 1952.
This build was strictly straight from the box. I
wanted to build it with canopy and gun bay closed so as to preserve the
sleek lines of this early jet.
The exterior was finished in Alclad II Polished
Aluminum, with everything else being a combination of Tamiya, Gunze and
Polly Scale acrylics.
This is a beautiful kit and highly recommended for those interested in
early U.S. jet aircraft. While quickly downgraded to a lesser role with
the arrival of the F-86 Sabre, the F-84 Thunderjets played an important
role as bombers.
