The Republic F-84 Thunderjet was an American-built turbojet fighter-bomber aircraft. Originating as a 1944 United States Army Air Force 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.

Republic F-84G Thunderjet

Designed to meet a US Army requirement for a turbojet "day fighter," the F-84 first flew on February 28, 1946. Early models suffered from so many structural and engine problems that the Air Force considered scrapping the F-84 project in 1948, but designers rallied and by 1949 the F-84D was fully operational and free from most of its earlier problems. The aircraft became the Air Force's primary strike aircraft during the Korean War, and could claim several firsts, including the first fighter capable of carrying a nuclear weapon and the first to use in-flight refueling.

Sky Max's 1:72 scale F-84 Thunderjet is a lot of value packed into an inexpensive product. This eye-catching model is constructed almost entirely from diecast metal, with a small amount of plastic used to highlight details such as the engine intake and exhaust and speed brake. The multi-framed canopy has an exceptional fit and slides open for viewing of the cockpit interior, instrument panel, control stick and pilot seat. The solid metal wing is fitted to the model with almost no visible seams, with top wingtip tanks molded into the wing casting. Each release features a variety of under-wing mounted ordnance such as rockets, bombs and fuel tanks.
