Tanmodel 2201 1/48 RF-84F Thunderflash Kit Build Review

First of all, I would like to welcome this new company into the hobby business and especially in the 1/48th scale aviation subjects! I am very much looking forward to TANMODEL doing other similar subjects that are of interest to the Turkish Air Force such as the T-37 (that nobody seems to have enough brains to realize how much it was used around the world), maybe a TF-102, a T-41, etc. Being a new company, I am sure they have put a lot of their money and heart in this project and as such I will not be unreasonable and will only make constructive comments. The intent is to build it straight out of the box with no aftermarket stuff or scratch building.

I started by washing the release mold off of all the parts. Speaking of ejection seats, the kit does not provide Italian AMI or Martin Baker seats for the German subjects. Republic RF-84F Thunderflash - 1:48 TanModel - Kits. Republic RF-84F Thunderflash1:48 TanModel The Republic F-84F was essentially a new aircraft, however due to budget issues it was promoted as a development of the straight winged F-84E.

The original XF-96A was the last F-84E fitted with a swept wing but it was found that performance over the straight winged airframe was marginal at best. However at the time it was ordered into production with the hope that the J65 engine (a licence built Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire) would improve performance. Adoption of this engine saw the fuselage stretched vertically creating an oval cross section.

It first entered service with the Royal Navy in April 1980 as the Sea Harrier FRS1 and became informally known as the "Shar". Unusual in an era in which most naval and land-based air superiority fighters were large and supersonic, the principal role of the subsonic Sea Harrier was to provide air defence of the fleet from Royal Navy aircraft carriers.

Hasegawa 1/48 F-16C Fighting Falcon Black Knights Limited Edition. Republic of Singapore Air Force standouts The Republic of Singapore Air Force is unlike the Air Force of any other nation in that the aircraft of the RSAF can cross the entire landmass of their nation in just thirteen minutes.

Possibly because of that fact, Singapore maintains one of the most highly trained and well equipped militaries in the world. Limited edition kit features decals for the "Black Knights".

ModelWeb » Blog Archive » Pressrelease for the Saab 37 Viggen in 1/48 scale. 19.12.2013 Petr 'DeSnek' Pastera - 3,976 přečtení Firma MPM Production pressrelease for the Saab 37 Viggen in 1/48 scale. Tarangus and MPM announces the first test shots of of the forthcoming Saab 37 Viggen in 1/48 scale! “The Viggen is an iconic aircraft which has been somewhat neglected from a modeling perspective.

There hasn’t been a new kit for at least 30 years”, says Fredrik Zetterberg from Tarangus. “We had considered making the Viggen for some time when we were approached by Tarangus”, says Jiri Silhanek, CEO of MPM, “it was just a golden opportunity for both companies.” MPM is a well known brand for modelers worldwide, having produced many classic kits with an ever improving quality for many years. Tarangus will release the first version, the JA 37 fighter version, in the first months of 2014. The kit is designed using the same CAD system used by Airbus and thus ensures a perfect fit of the parts.

“We’re very happy to work with MPM on this kit. Internet Modeler Latest News from Tarangus. För svensk översättning, se nedan. New Saab Safir in 1/48 scale! Tarangus releases a Saab Safir in 1/48 scale in July. The Saab Safir has never before been made in this scale, which may seem a little odd as it's one of the most sold airplanes Saab has ever made. The Safir served in the Swedish, Norwegian, Austrian, Finnish and Ethiopian air forces among others, but also found its way to the flight schools of Lufthansa and KLM, just to name a few. The Tarangus kit can be built as any of the Lycoming engined Safirs and comes with marking for the Swedish, Finnish and Ethiopian air forces.
