Product Description

The F-84 "Thunderjet", built by Republic, was the USAF's first post-war fighter. It began rolling off the production lines in June 1947, and by the time production ceased in 1953, approximately 4,450 "straight-wing" F-84's (in contrast to the swept-wing F-84F) had been built. In addition to being used by the USAF, many were supplied to allied nations. The airplane gained its greatest renown during the Korean Conflict where it was used primarily for low-level interdiction missions. Almost daily the F-84 attacked enemy railroads, bridges, supply depots and troop concentrations with bombs, rockets and napalm.

The swept-wing F-84F evolved from the straight-wing F-84. Deliveries began in 1954, primarily to the tactical Air Command as a ground support fighter bomber.

Republic built 2,112 "F"s while General Motors fabricated an additional 599. Of these, 1,301 were delivered to NATO air forces. Production of a reconnaissance version, the RF-84F, totaled 718 aircraft, including 386 for allied countries. The RF-84F featured engine air intakes at the wing roots plus cameras in the nose.

F-84Fs gradually were replaced by supersonic F-100s in the late 1950s and were turned over to Air National Guard units. However, some F-84Fs were called back to temporary USAF service in the early 1960s due to the Berlin Crisis.

About these Handcrafted Airplane Models:
This beautiful handmade airplane model is an authentic replica made from the finest grade of select kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. The airplane model is made entirely by hand: From the handcarving of the aircraft fuselage, wings and tail section, to the sanding of the aircraft's contours. Every part is assembled precisely into place. After shaping and sanding, the airplane model passes through several stages of priming and sanding before it is hand painted to duplicate the actual colors, emblems and insignias of the original historical aircraft. Finally, multiple coats of clear lacquer are applied to protect the artwork and provide an overall glossy finish.
