1/72 F-84F Thunderstreak

15 posts in this topic

Here is an old school F-84F (Italeri or Revell maybe...?? box has been binned).

I have a collection of early jet diecast aircraft and wanted to fill some of the gaps in my collection with plastic where necessary.

As no F-84F exists in 1/72 diecast I built this old thing.

Detail is to be expected from such and old mould and as I wanted to depict a USAF aircraft I use decals from the spares box.

Nice straightforward build with no major problems and another one ticked off the list.

The last 2 photos show the rest of my USAF early jet collection.

Cheers all,

Phil

Nice work, the poor old Thunderstreak is either ignored or subject of ancient kits in 1/72nd

A very interesting collection you have there!

I don't like modern jets that much, but the American jets from the late 40,

the 50s and the 60s are truly fantastic/

An amazing work you did with that "oldy"

Congratulations. Polo.

Nice going on that one Phil, I've just tracked down the Italeri one of these & some decals for a camo'd Belgian one, so I'd day an announcement on a new tooled one should be due. :)

Great F-84 and even greater collection. Most of them are on my to do list in exactly the schemes you have chosen-inspirational!

Hi Phil!

Great looking F-84F and a very nice early jets collection! Unfortunately both Italeri kits (Thunderstreak and Thunderflash) are difficult to find meanwhile and quite expensive.

Cheers,

Mario

Have one of them unbuilt in the stash. Unfortunately no Thunderflash, as I missed the re-release of the kit several years ago.

Hi Phil,

A marvellous collection of USAF airyplanes before they started slapping camouflage paint on some of them. In do like the F100 Super Sabre for it's eye catching scheme. The F84F I like too because of it's shape and I built one a few years ago with some additional bits in the Belgian Air Force camo. scheme. DACO had a great decal sheet and it made a big difference with some colourful markings. I just wish I had the space. Keep up the great work mate.

Love this collection! Nice to see a Canberra in there. I'm trying to get to grips with a B57 in bare metal.

I do think you need an f101 voodoo on the team!👍
