    The F-84F Thunderstreak swept-wing jet fighter was a development of the Republic F-84G straight wing aircraft. Using a wing with the sweep along with a more powerful jet engine improved the performance to that of the F-86 Sabre. At first, the F-84F experienced several trouble with their power units, manoeuvrability as well as with corrosion. Later, after the outbreak of the Berlin Crisis and subsequent need to make the NATO forces more powerful, the F-84F jets started to equip many NATO air forces, including that of Germany and France, while earlier these planes were used mainly by the USAF and US Guard units. The first combat deployment the F-84F saw was during the Suez Crisis and the only air victories gained by the type were acieved by Turkish machines taking on Iraqi Il-28 bombers violating the Turkish air space.
   The French F-84Fs were flown from French bases and during the 1956 Operation Musketeer also from bases in Cyprus and Israel. Those flying from Israeli bases temporarily wore the IAF national markings instead of the standard French roundels. This boxing of our highly detailed F-84F model offers one scheme of a machine flown in France plus two as taking part in the Operation Musketeer, one of which is with the Israeli stars.
- excellent and very nicely detailed model, builds like a dream
- extra large decal sheet with complete stencils
- colourful schemes
