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 F84F served both in the home skies and overseas in Europe and in the Pacific. Our SH72395 kit set brings four USAF marking schemes, two of which were flown in the US while the other two in the UK. Special Hobby’s  F-84F kit is completely new with superb levels of detail and offers two styles of the canopy hood which can be posed either closed or open. Four styrene sprues also bring wide range of underwing stores
