  1. Recently completed my 1/72 Sword RF-84F Thunderflash. Went with the RNoAF markings in the kit. The decals in this kit were superb, with loads of miniscule stencil markings. The original engraving was very fine so I re-scribed everything. Added some canopy locking mechanism latches from an Eduard F-16 etched set. Used a little cars lens for the landing light & added the rod actuator for the nose leg. Drilled out the gun ports. Mig acrylics & Vallejo Metal color Aluminium underside with a Mig enamel pin wash. Royal Norwegian Air Force RF-84F 51-17053
  2. Hi, Finally came round to posting 1/48 Tanmodel RF-84 Thunderflash in the RFI section. A nice kit but not without challenges. Please see also the WIP thread of this model. Airbrushed with AK Xtreme metal polished Aluminium and a flory dark brown dirt wash. Red and black Mr Color paints and some brushed highlights with revell aqua color. Decals by DutchDecal which adhered quite nicely. Despite the kit at times being little fiddly............ I can't wait for Tanmodel's 1/48 buccaneer when hopefully at some point (if ever) it will be on the web-shelves. Hope you like it. Did notice a
  3. Hi, Alongside an F-15 I am building, I started work on Tanmodels RF-84 Thunderflash. So far a nice kit with quite some detail in the camera bay area. Did some work on the cockpit and Camera's and fuselage. Trying to figure out what scheme I will go for. I am thinking of either the Dutch metal or camouflage scheme. Or perhaps a Belgian Thunderflash? Well some way to go still.... The Belgian scheme does look cool. That's all for now,
  4. Source: http://www.themodellingnews.com/2014/04/guess-who-is-about-to-launch-new-f-84f.html#more Strong rumours say KittyHawk is working on a 1/32nd Republic RF-84F Thunderflash kit. Time will tell. V.P.
  5. Hello, Here's my just finished 1/48 RF-84F. It's the Tanmodel kit, and I used Caracal Decals to do it as one from the 38th TRS, 10th TRW, based at Spangdahlem AB in West Germany between 1955 and 1958. This is part of a little project of mine to build all the different planes and units that were based at Spangdahlem at some point. This is the 5th build for that, after an F-4G, A-10A, F-15C and F-105F. The Tanmodel kit is a lovely model, in my opinion. The panel lines and rivets are a bit deep, and a little inconsistent, and the camera assembly in the nose is a bit tricky

  8. Hi! Anniversary of Operation Musketeer/Mousquetaire/Kadesh/Suez war is approaching and I have been thinking about building one of more colourful aircraft taking part for a start. French F-84Fs and RF-84Fs, with various stripes and squadron badges, fit this description nicely. From gathered material I figured out about the identification stripes (single yellow stripe with black outline until the end of October, yellow-black stripes from 1st November on) and from available articles and books I learned about not so uniformed reality of improvised use of yellow paint on Cyprus, planes wearing bot
  9. Republic RF-84F Thunderflash 1:48 TanModel Version 2 We first reviewed this excellent new kit from Tan Model here back in January. The plastic in this version is almost identical, however the guys at Tanmodel have listened to feedback and made some changes from the original boxing. A new extensive decal sheet has been printed by Cartograf in Italy with input from Dutch Decal, Daco, Mr. Kim Zimmerman and Mr. Jens Jensen. Given the extensive glazing of the RF-84 Tanmodel has now added a masking set. In addition there have been minor corrections to a few parts and a re-polishing of the mo
  10. Republic F-84F Thunderstreak & RF-84F Thunderflash Warpaint Series No.100 The F-84F Thunderstreak was originally planned to augment the USAF's front-line fighter requirements in the early 1950's; however, engine and aerodynamic teething problems delayed production until 1954. Although the Thunderstreak was not classed as a superior or outstanding aircraft, its performance being overshadowed by the F-86 Sabre, the aircaft was produced in large numbers and served with the USAF and many other nations air forces for many years. The underpowered Wright J65 engine did not give
  11. Republic RF-84F Thunderflash 1:48 TanModel The Republic F-84F was essentially a new aircraft, however due to budget issues it was promoted as a development of the straight winged F-84E. The original XF-96A was the last F-84E fitted with a swept wing but it was found that performance over the straight winged airframe was marginal at best. However at the time it was ordered into production with the hope that the J65 engine (a licence built Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire) would improve performance. Adoption of this engine saw the fuselage stretched vertically creating an oval cross section. Pr
