In 1:48 scale, the F-84G Thunderjet from Revell has been showing up lately at Michaels Stores. With a 50% Michaels coupon, I paid for mine just $10.70 after taxes. Look for a complete build here a Model Kits Review.com. Although it proved to be the most effective and successful fighter-bomber in 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 in-flight refueling capability and it was the first fighter-bomber to have the ability to deliver a nuclear weapon. Features weighted tires, recessed panel lines and standing pilot figure.
Optional armament, nuclear bomb, 250 lb. bombs or 5″ HVAR rockets. Authentic markings included for F-84G, 51-0896, 77th Fighter Bomber Squadron, 20th Fighter Bomber Wing, 1952 and F-84G, 51-10651 9th Fighter Bomber Squadron, Tregu, Korea, 1953. Molded in light gray and clear.
