First Look

The folks from the Hi-Decal Line have produced some interesting subjects that you won't find from most other decal manufacturers. In this release, they've provided markings for a pair of hand-me-down F-84G Thunderjets. In fact, these aircraft are so fresh from USAF operations that many of the markings, such as the wing US national markings, are not completely covered.

The first aircraft, 51-10809 is an F-84G-21-RE that was handed over to the French Air Force E.C. 1/3 "Navarre" squadron. The aircraft has been mostly repainted with French markings in 1953.

The second aircraft, 51-10373 is an F-84G-16-RE of the 340th Mira "Flying Foxes, Royal Hellenic Air Force in 1954.

Hi-Decal Line are available from many online retailers.

My sincere thanks to Hi-Decal Line for this review sample!
