  1. Hi All This is my 3rd finished model during the lockdown (actually the 3rd done this year) F-84G Thunderjet from Tamiya in 1/48th scale 58 FBS , Taegu (Korea) 1952 Aires cockpit and gun bay Alclad II lacquer and Tamiya Acrylic colors Decal OOB Work in Progress here
  2. REPUBLIC F-84G THUNDERJET, Royal Norwegian Air Force, 1956. 51-11113, EOS. Personal aircraft of Fighter Wing Rygge's Commander Eigil O. Stigseth. Kit: Tamiya Republic F-84G Thunderjet (60745) Scale: 1/72 Aftermarket: Vingtor decals (72-119) Paints: Vallejo Model Air & Vallejo Metal Color Weathering: Flory Models Wash, MIG Streaking Effects, Vallejo Weathering Effects Build thread: Delightful kit all around. Aftermarket decals gave me bit of a struggle but came out OK in the end. Hope you like it - comments & feedback welcomed.
  3. I've got a confession to make - I've never built Tamiya kits. So I thought why not test whether they live up to their good reputation, and try not only one - but two. So this is Tamiya 1/48 and 1/72 Republic F-84G Thunderjet double build. I thought it might be fun to compare the two kits side by side as I build them. It could also be confusing and I make a mess of the kits and parts - there's only one way to find out Box arts. Painted Tamiya box arts are always classy. Model in the 1/72 is also nice but I think I prefer the painting. Decals. For the 1/48 I'll be using kit decals which look pretty good. The 1/72 I'll be doing something different than the box offers and make it as a Norwegian Thunderjet using Vingtor decals. Hoping to start a small collection of scandinavian cold war era jets. Collection, that currently consists of one model - a Finnish Vampire. But hey, you gotta start somewhere, right? Big brother and little brother side by side. Wings. The clear parts and the extra sprue that the 1/48 kit has. This did not come with the kit. She is called Batman and she loves my hobby. Mainly due to the seemingly endless supply of boxes
  4. My fifth completion of the year (though the only one in 1/32), the HobbyBoss Republic F-84G Thunderjet in the markings - of which more below - of one of the aircraft supplied to the Armee de l'Air in 1952: The kit was built almost OOB though I did add a TetraWorks US Seat Harness set to the cockpit and used the Eduard canopy mask set designed for this kit. I also added a couple of extra wheel-balancing weights under the cockpit floor but I suspect the metal noseweights provided with the kit would have been enough. The kit was painted in Alclad Duralumin with some areas painted over in Vallejo Metal Colour Dark Aluminium as most colour pictures showed a distinct variation in the shade of metal around the cockpit and the jet-pipe outlet and the rudder. The interior was painted in Colourcoats US Interior Green and Zinc Chromate Green, the wheelbays and airbrake bay were painted in Yellow Zinc Chromate dulled with a little buff colour to 'age' the paint a bit. The wing stripes were painted in RAF Night and the wingtip tanks in RAF Yellow. The aircraft codes, squadron badges and most of the serial numbers on the tail were from the kit transfers, as were a couple of the stencils, but the majority of the kit's transfers were unusable due to having something spilt or splashed on them which rendered them irremovable from the backing sheet. They came in the kit in sealed bags, so this was not something I am prepared to take the rap for, but I don't imagine it is a common problem with HobbyBoss as I have not heard any other complaints about their transfers. The remainder of the markings and stencils were from the Berna Decals set for the F-84G, they were absolutely fine though the roundels/cocardes in the Berna set were significantly smaller than those provided with the kit, and had the yellow outline which the kit ones lacked. I don't know if this means I have a more, or less, accurate kit but all the pictures I have seen on the internet of French F-84s seem to carry the smaller cocardes. Anyway, I enjoyed building it and it's nice to get another notch on 2019's bedpost Cheers, Stew
  5. F-84G Thunderjet Yugoslav Air Force Batajnica Airbase 1954 "Titova Stafeta" kit: Monogram 1/48 decals: Wolf Heritage Decals - thanks Murmillo! was a great build wihtin the even better and ongoing 50s NATO vs Warsaw Pact and affected countries GB! WIP: 50s NATO v Warsaw Pact GB after WWII, Yugoslavia started of with quite interesting assortment of armament, 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 in Arctic high viz colors! in the late 50ies already they were seconded to fighter bomber duties because newer F-86E arrived from England One of them even crashed into an Austrian mountain because the pilot passed out due to oxygen problems during a training flight...... so here she is! decals are from Wolf Heritage Decals: ( @Murmillo ) printed by Begemot, absolutely recommendable! hope you her! Best regards, Werner
  6. Hello Everybody ... This will be my entry for this build. The classic but very good Monogram Republic F-84F Thunderstreak. I will choose which markings i will do this in as i approach the painting stage. My two - three options are 390th T.F.S out of Chambley-Bussieres France. This one has Yellow/Black striping. The other is the 77th T.F.S. These are the markings of the CO of the 77th. Lt.Col.Bob Ackerly. The 20th were at RAF Wethersfield. From the NMUSAF records. ”Nov 1951–22 May 1952; Wethersfield RAF Station, England, 1 Jun 1952; Shepherds Grove RAF Station (later, RAF Shepherds Grove), England, 9 Aug 1955; RAF Wethersfield, England, 27 Apr 1956.” See everyone when this starts next week, @Col. Thanks for setting this build up im looking forward to it. Dennis
  7. Hello everybody. A long time due to a lot of life reasons I was absent on a forum. There were many interesting things happened during this time that will give us hope for the future. But I am sincerely happy to see everybody again. Today I would like to present you a new my single engine jet fighter from the Korean War. Let's meet with the legendary "Thunderjet". This is one of my favorite aircraft of those times. The WIP process was very complex and very simple at the same time. I don`t know the reason of it, I know it sounds strange, but it's true. I have focused primarily on cockpit details then exterior. There are four metallic colours I used for the outher skin pannel`s effect. Let's together sit on the sofa and look at the pictures. Hope You like it. Thanks. Andrii.
  8. Hi all, Here's my just finished 1/72 Academy F-84G Thunderjet. I did it as a machine from Escadron de Reconnaissance Tactique 2/33 "Savoie", based at Cognac in the mid 50's. I added a recce pod on the left wing from Model Art. This was a converted Fletcher fuel tank as used on the T-33, to give the straight wing F-84's a basic recce capability. It was first used by the French, and found its way to other NATO Thunderjet users. Decals came from a Berna sheet. Painted with Vallejo Metal Color, Revell, ModelMaster and Tamiya paints. Thanks for looking, and I hope you like it. Pete
  9. G’day folks. Latest off the bench for me is Tamiya’s 1/48 F-84G converted to a Royal Danish Air Force RF-84G using the MADS resin set. I wanted to build something other than a NMF Thunderjet as they are not often seen. Some brief research and I found that the Danes flew them in their regular guise as well as a reconnaissance platform. A bit more research revealed that Hi-Decal did the markings and MADS did the tank. I think the RAF temperate grey/green over PRU blue got it over the line. The MADS resin set consists of a replacement port tank in the way of a T-33 Fletcher photo recon tank and a vertical camera housing. I believe it was the French that came up with the idea of loading an oblique camera into the T-33 tank of which a few nations followed with the same idea. Located behind the nose gear bay, the vertical camera resulted in the battery being relocated to a different part of the fuselage. Photos of these aircraft have been hard to come by and for that reason some educated assumptions have been made regarding stencils and the finish of the aircraft. The colour of the emerald green is probably the most dubious part as that can be interpreted many different ways. I had a few issues with the Hi-Decal markings namely the tip tank lightning bolts which ended up being masked and painted after the fragile decal fell apart into several pieces. In summary… RF-84G Thunderjet, Reconnaissance Flight, 729th Squadron, Royal Danish Air Force; Karup AFB, spring 1957. Tamiya 1/48 F-84G - Item 61060 MADS 1/48 F-84G Thunderjet Recce Pod - Item M.Access 004 Quickboost 1/48 F-84G Ejection Seat with safety belts - Item QB 48-493 Hi-Decal 1/48 F-84G Decals - Item HDL 48017 Cutting Edge and Tamiya kit stencils Gunze acrylic and lacquer paints - (Custom PRU blue) To the pics… Cheers, Mick
  10. Hi everyone, this is my latest aircraft diorama. I had an old Academys F-84 thunderjet kit and I didn't want it to throw away and so I decided to make small vignette with it. I was inspired by the new Star wars: The force awakens teaser trailer when I saw the x-wing and the star destroyer in the sand. I started digging into reference if any thunderjet crashed in the desert, pilot was killed in the crash, so that is my interpretation of this event. I hope you guys like it!
  11. So this was posted to the RCAF Facebook page today: "Today in aviation history March 3, 1965 – RCAF Flight Lieutenant Kenneth Abraham Harvey, while flying an F-84F Thunderjet to Edmonton, Alberta, finds his engine vibrating. At length the engine fails. Rather than bail out and leave the aircraft to crash in a populated area, he carries out a safe landing. For this action he is awarded the Air Force Cross." Assuming this is true, has anyone heard about this before? If so, please share any additional information and/or pictures. Regards, ANS
  12. Hi all, Here are some pictures of my latest model, Revells excellent 1/48 scale Republic F-84G Thunderjet finished in the markings of the Yugoslav Air Force. This kit is simply excellent and very well detailed out of the box but is often overlooked in favour of the more expensive but less accurate Tamiya model. The Yugoslav's received F-84's from 1953 onwards and some were delivered in the so-called Arctic scheme as shown here. This is the 3rd Yugoslav marked aircraft that I have finished this year, thanks to the encouragement of my very good Serbian friend Sasha who not only supplies me with decals but also all the information I need to finish the models accurately, thank you Sasha. I hope that you all like the photos, and all comments and questions are very welcome. If you want to see her in the flesh as it were she will be on the IPMS Nuneaton/Mercia stand at Telford. Thanks for looking.Craig.
  13. A lovely kit and minimal filler needed. Painted with Model Air Steel. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. As a bonus it was only a fiver from Modelzone. 1/72 Academy F-84G Thunderjet by jackaldesigned, on Flickr 1/72 Academy F-84G Thunderjet by jackaldesigned, on Flickr 1/72 Academy F-84G Thunderjet by jackaldesigned, on Flickr
