not Warsaw Pakt, nor NATO, but still in here! , thanks to the mods and the rules, I am able to do a Thunderjet of the Yugoslavian Air Force within this GB! actually a kit and decals I sourced about 2 years ago, when during one of my out of the normal ways of thinking I discovered that Yugoslavia started of with quite interesting assortment of armament after WWII, although a Socialist country, it was throughout its existence more or less independent and sourced arms or licences for them all over the world..... a lot of effort was also put into their own industry and quite some respectable planes and capability came from that! for those interested, here some links: https://acesflyinghigh.wordpress.com/2016/01/16/yugoslav-air-force-combat-aircraft-1953-to-1979-the-jet-age-i-us-soviet-aircraft/ http://yumodelclub.tripod.com/history_of_yugoslav_aviation/thunderjet_f__84_g.htm Yugoslavian Air Force operated 231 Republic (R)F-84G from June 1953 until July 1974, first as fighters in aluminium/ natural metal, sometimes still with the US insignia, sometimes with Arctic high viz colors! in the late 50ies already they were seconded to fighter bomber duties because newer F-86E arrived from England (see also @Giorgio N 's build of an Italian example in this same GB!...) and started to receive camoflage so, my original intent was to build a camoflaged example... but that would strech my knowledge a bit in order to ascertain it was operated like this already in the late 50ies.. can sombody help out here with individual examples? I'd prefer photos....! if not in time, I will happily do a aluminium one the 2 decal sets from Lift Here fortunately provide options for both (Lift Here Decals) so, next issue, the kit, is slightly, really slightly only started I guess common sense wold say below 25% easily Revell- Monogram ProModeller Edition F-84G Thunderjet 1/48 LiftHere Decals US-Jets in Yugoslavian Service Part 2& 3 Batajnica Airbase 1954 on the left the later camoflaged version, on the right the unpainted one, also with nose art Batajnica Airbase 1954 the kit does not look too complicated, i also assume that I do not have to modify anything unforeseen! so there might remain time in this GB to to more stuff wait and see! thanks already fro your interest, hosts for hosting and please come up with input and suggestions! cheers, Werner
