|51-0896 F-84G Thunderjet
77 FBS, 20 FBW 1953
1/48 Scale Revell
|Although it proved to be the most effective and successful fighter-bomber of the Korean Conflict, the
contributions of the F-84G Thunderjet go well beyond even those accomplishments. The Thunderjet
was the first production fighter bomber to be fitted with both 'probe and drogue' and 'flying boom'
in-flight refueling capability and it was the first fighter-bomber to have the ability to deliver a Nuclear
Weapon. The left wing carries a Mk7 Nuclear Weapon.
Built out of the box. Finished with Bare Metal Foil. The new Revell kit has nice recessed panel lines
and the cockpit is pretty descent. Decals are much better/thinner than what they previously supplied.
However, they should use a glue that dries clear. Impossible to hide the decal carrier if you're applying
them to either a silver painted or Bare Metal finished model.
