1/144 Republic F-84F Thunderstreak - (upd)

Miniwing continue to release kits overlook by mainstream manufacturers and now present you with the Republic F-84F Thunderstreak in 1/144.

The format follows the usual Miniwing presentation with the standard packaging, containing the bagged resin kit, 2 vac-form canopies,outline instructions, decal and colour sheet for a USA & French options (by Y-Kraft of Japan)

1) F-84F of 78th TFS "Bushmasters", 81st TFW at RAF Bentwaters
(RAF Bentwaters 1/144 Control Tower Paperbuilding - here 22mb )

2) F-84F of Escadron E.C 1/4 "Dauphine"(4e Escadre de Chasse), Luxeil,1964

The resin kit is nicely cast and is crisply moulded with fine detailing as we have come to expect from Miniwing. I'll let the pictures do the talking!

Some of you may have the old Aeroclub F-84F kit (#A1,#A2), you can be assured that this new release if far superior in detailing and quality to that old warhorse!
