Superscale Thunders in with two new decal choices for the F-84 in 1/32 scale


SuperScale Decals from Squadron Productions has two new single sets of decals for the F-84E and G models from Hobbyboss in 1/32. One flown by the very famous Col Robert L Scott and the other from the 310th FBS in korea with a massive dragon on it's flanks...


Decals for a single dragon-emblazoned USAAF Thunderjet: F-84G-16-RE s/n 51-10337 of the 310th FBS, 58th FBG in Korea during 1952. Includes intake scallop, national and unit insignia, USAF wing lettering, colour profiles, overhead plan view and painting notes.
To be honest I looked through every one of the Thunderjet books I have – and no mention of this specific aircraft so no picture I am sorry this time! – I do have a picture of the  310th fighter bomber squadron though to tide you over….

MS320260   REPUBLIC F-84E RBT.L.SCOTT  32    1/32 Scale   $16.00
 Decals for a very colourful gold-trimmed USAAF Thunderjet: F-84E-10-RE s/n 49-2299, personal mount of Col Robert L Scott, commanding officer of the 36th FBW in Germany during 1952. Includes intake scallop, national insignia, 'Flying Tiger' inspired wingtip and fuselage art, USAF wing lettering, colour profiles, overhead plan view and painting notes.
This is the Republic F-84E-10-RE Thunderjet Serial 49-2299 of the 23d Fighter-Bomber Squadron, 1951, flown by the Wing Commander Col. Robert L. Scott. Note the 23d Fighter Group emblem on the nose, as Col. Scott was a "Flying Tiger" in China during World War II. Pretty popular in this scale I have seen.
Check out the Squadron web-store for more on these decals – right now they are also 10% off the advertised prices you see here – so  $14.00USD!

P.S.
No excuse now for your F-84 stash to look like this one...
