My file in PC contains hundreds of aircraft walkaround, apart from RF-84K. I did search it online via google but got nothing satisfactory. It's better to be this alike, if you ask what kind quality I am seeking for, regrettably, the same website presents a sealed intake. So I have to seek help here. thanks in advance.

Is it F-84 Thunderstreak or RF-84 Thunderflash walkaround that you are looking for ? If it's really RF-84K, the main distinguishing feature was the 23 degrees of anheadral added to the tailplanes so they would clear the bay of the RB-36. There is also a small door forward of the windscreen that contains the retractable hook. No other modifications were made comparing to RF-84F. See here : http://www.cybermodeler.com/aircraft/f-84/rf-84k.shtml If nor K version : the belgian Thunderflash pictures in Primeportal are really good (http://www.primeportal.net/hangar/luc_colin3/rf-84f_fr-28/ or http://www.primeportal.net/hangar/luc_colin3/rf-84f_fr-32/). Some other ones (of the two German versions) here : http://www.b-domke.de/AviationImages/Thunder84.html Small walkaround film : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EetJficINkI#t=41 And, if it's only Thunderstreak : http://walkarounds.ru/aviation/usa/republic-f-84f-thunderstreak (For greater picture, click on the picture, then click again)

Sorry Arch: It is my mistake to call the RF-84F thunderstreak, you are absolutely right, it is called Thunderflash. And your link is helpful indeed. Furthermore, may I ask its turn rate? The initial climb rate has been found, which slightly lower than F-84F Thunderstreak, perhaps because of smaller T/W rate due to its incremental weight added by reconnaissance instrument in nose.
