F-84G & F-86D Cool Pics

Thought you might like to see a couple of the pics I used to make some of our F-84G and F-86D decal sets.

This is one of the more interested (and less well known) F-84G “nose art” jets from the 8th Fighter Bomber Squadron in Korea. The decal set that includes this jet is:

Straight-Wing Thunderjets With Nose Art. Love the nose art (fuselage art?) cartoon on this one: F-84G FS-466 "Ricepaddy Ranger," 8 FBS; the very famous F-84G FS-111-B "Five Aces," 69 FBS; and MiG killer F-84E FS-139-A flown by Jim Simpson.

Quite a bit of amazing nose art appeared on F-86D interceptors during the mid-1950s. I guess because when I was a kid I thought the Sabre Dog was the coolest jet ever. Gotta love that huge schnoz ("nose" for those not familiar with American slang).

Although now politically incorrect, Lt Xavier Guerra flew his Sabre Dog with the fascinating artwork “El Flying Wetback” with the 94th Fighter Interceptor Squadron (the famous “Hat in the Ring” squadron that dates back to Eddie Rickenbacker’s era in World War I). This jet is included on my decal set:

Finally for today’s update, is:

Probably should have shown you a pic from a different decal set, but I’ve always loved this particular Sabre Dog. This

jet was flown by Lt Col Frank Rinn, commander of the 94th Fighter Interceptor Squadron in 1955. It’s included in this decal set:
