  1. It was in late 2007 when a new chinese brand called Kinetic released its first kit a new tool 1/48th Republic F-84F Thunderstreak (link) with the appropriate reference number 4801. This kit was later reboxed twice by Italeri in 2009 and 2011 (link). Kinetic is soon to re-release this kit under new ref. K48068.

  2. Hello everyone... I present to you my Republic Thunderstreak. 92nd F.I.S., 81st T.F.W.. Stationed at R.A.F. Manston, Shepherds grove, & Bentwaters in 1955. Outside of a few decals which include the Star & Bars & USAF markings, everything is painted. I opted to load the Mk.7 “Device” on the inboard port station. This was a one way Nuclear strike unit or Tactical support/air-to-air. This was built in the 1950’s NATO Group build. Without further talk i present the model. 
  3. Like many on this forum I remember the excitement of queueing up at age of six for the Cinema (Gants Hill Odeon I think) to see Battle of Britain with my Dad. And again a few weeks later to see it again. At the time the main thing my friends and I remembered was the endless parade of German bombers at the start proving “we” didn’t have a cat in hell’s chance; and the bomber crew’s goggles filling up with blood when attacked! Gruesome, but that’s a six-year old for you. That must have been the time the Airfixing started, initially with Dad but quickly progressing to my own work and painting
  4. Well, as promised on on the F-84F Build Thread HERE I am posting up the pictures of the finished model, with a little embellishment to the kit: Thanks for looking in! Ed
  5. Hello again. Well, I am excited today to tell you that the postman just brought something I have wanted for a long time -- a PJ Productions 1/72 resin F-84F Thunderstreak. While like most, I would have preferred a new injection kit, complete with Jato/Rato and Mk7 nuke options, the PJ Productions kit has long been held to be more accurate (particularly in the nose area!) than the Airfix or Italieri offerings, long overdue for a modern re-tooling!!! Anyway, I am glad to have it at last. This time the kit comes with European markings, and the box looks like this:
  6. Hi all! Yes, in true London Bus tradition (you wait ages and then more than one come together.... see my F-100 recently) I have the latest product of the Crawley Down hangar ready for inspection. J As you can see, she is a F-84F Thunderstreak as she was when operated by the Turkish Air Force from Incirlik AB in the early 1970s. The Turkish Air force (THK) received around 300 Thunderstreaks from West Germany, France and the Netherlands. This one, 53-7086 (ex-WGAF), a F-84F-75-RE was one of the last built and arrived In Turkey after a major overhaul in West Germany. They were known as

  9. Looks like my next project will be the ancient Monogram 1/48th Republic F-84F Thunderstreak. I have the newer Italeri (Kinetic) and HobbyBoss kits in the stash however the 1984 Monogram offering is still supposed to be the most accurate kit and it comes with the Mk.7 atomic bomb! I would appreciate any help with the Mk.7 atomic bomb as follows: 1) Which pylon was it attached to on the F-84F? I think it was in the place of one of the fuel tanks on the fuselage, not on the outer wing pylon however any advice appreciated. 2) What colour was the Mk.7 painted? Al
  10. Hi guys here is my Kinetic F-84F in the colors of the Dutch 311 squadron. This kit seems to have very deep panel lines but I did not experienced it as very problematic. In fact I liked this kit very much. Decals are from Dutch Decal and the cockpit oi from Aires. Erik
  11. Redux 1/48 Republic F-84F Thunderstreak (RDXENS-1) built as 29029/1-NX from EC.1/1 ‘Corse’ Armee De L’Air masquerading as 200 Tayeset of the Israeli Air Force at Lod in late October/early November 1956 The model was built for a magazine article last autumn but due to an unfortunate shelving collapse this model and most of my work for the past year or so took its first flight earlier this week and so looks even worse now than it does in the images which include a couple on a mirrored base I was experimenting with. The kit parts are those produced originally by Monogram a
  12. Hi all, I came across this and thought I'd post it in case the data within it is useful. Martin http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/268825-148-republic-f-84f-thunderstreak-by-hobbyboss-a-first-look/&page=5
  13. Hi all, Seeking advice/info please. It looks like the ex- KLU/Luftwaffe F-84Fs flying with Turkey had MB seats? If so does anyone out there know which model they used? Thanks. Martin

  16. Hi all, wonder if anyone has a solution to the following? I want to make the P-212 Royal Netherland A/F F-84F from the Dutch decals sheet https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/5/2/3/317523-12382-41.jpg but it has Day-Glow Orange drop tanks. There's no paint type call out on the sheet and I wonder if there is a paint specifically for this? I have two orange paints at the moment, Tamiya X-6 and Gunze Sangyo Hobby Color H14, both of which look like generic 'oranges'. So question, is there a 'Day-glow Orange' paint i CAN BUY or if not is there anything I can add to either the Tamiya or Gun
  17. This set intended to improve 1/48 Monogram / Kinetic F-84F Thunderstreak exterior details. Highly detailed airbrakes, wing interceptors with fine details, emty shell ejection ports fences, small air scoops for both fuselage sides, JATO hooks are included in the set. Though airbrakes are very complicated to build, you can simlify building process, using kit details as a base for outer and inner elements. We will provide some building tips here soon for better model accuracy. Made of steel with a thickness of 0.05 mm.
  18. Hi, here's the latest off the bench. Italeri kit with Aries resin cockpit and Quickboost nose intake. Not a bad kit IMHO, just needed a little filler at the wing roots. Thanks for looking. FF
  19. Hi, Here's where I am with my current build. Painted with Gunze and tamiya paints. Nice kit, although the panel lines may be a little overdone in places, and also a little 'soft'. Thanks for looking. FF
  20. This is the 1/48 Kinetic Kit reboxed by Italeri. Nice kit, need the quickboost nose part as the kit intake is the wrong shape. Overall silver is Mitheril Silver from Games workshop. Red spine is humbrol all the markings are the kit decals which are great. Italian Aerobatic Display Team "Diavoli Rossi" 1958 This was an enjoyable model apart the canopy which really is designed to be open! Julien
