The F-84F was originally a swept-wing modification to the F-84E Thunderjet but the extensive changes required made the type an almost new design. The Thunderstreak was adaptable and durable. Although it was not considered a spectacular performer, it was an excellent cruising machine and it could out maneuver an F-86 Sabre at low altitude. Too late to join its sibling (the F-84E Thunderjet) in the Korean war, the Thunderstreak spent most of its service life during the Cold War. The F-84F was dependable in the service of the US Air Force and served with Air National Guard units until 1972. This print depicts an F-84F Thunderstreak of the Ohio ANG about to rendezvous with a KC-97 Stratotanker to refuel.

What paper are you using Mark? I need to find my perfect paper for my style. So far, I haven't found it yet. I have several commissions but can't find the right paper.
