|The Republic F-84 Thunderjet was an American turbojet fighter-bomber aircraft. Originating as a 1944 United States Army Air Forces proposal for a ""day fighter"", the F-84 flew in 1946. Although it entered service in 1947, the Thunderjet was plagued by so many structural and engine problems that a 1948 Air Force review declared it unable to execute any aspect of its intended mission and considered cancelling the program. The aircraft was not considered fully operational until the 1949 F-84D model and the design matured only with the definitive F-84G introduced in 1951. The straight-wing F-84A to F-84E and F-84G models are called the Thunderjet. The F-84G which entered service in 1951. The aircraft introduced a refueling boom receptacle in the left wing, autopilot, Instrument Landing System, J35-A-29 engine with 5,560 lbf (24.7 kN) of thrust, and the ability to carry a single Mark 7 nuclear bomb. The F-84G was retired from USAF in the mid-1960s. Painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail, this 1/32-scale model makes a great pilot gift, or a present for any aviation enthusiast or history buff.|
