Jumbojig F-84 G 'Thunderjet' Jigsaw Puzzle
Now for something completely different! Here we have an aviation themed jigsaw puzzle, complete with its original packaging, which retains all its 70 interlocking pieces. Made up the puzzle depicts an image of a Netherlands Airforce F-84G Thunderjet that carries nose art on the aircraft in the foreground stating 'Jumbo Stunt-Team'. Research indicates the Netherlands Airforce started operating the US made Thunderjet in 1955 and served with 306, 311, 312, 313, 314, 315 and 316 Squadrons, until being retired in December 1970. The type was an American turbojet fighter-bomber aircraft, developed 1944 and first flew in 1946 with the United States Army Air Force.
The base of the box is marked 'Made in Holland' and the box ends also shows reference number 1043, as well as confirmation it contains '70 fully interlocking pieces'. We have no indication when this puzzle would have been manufactured, but it clearly has some age to it, but remains in really excellent original condition. The assembled jigsaw measures 12" x 8.5" (30.5 cm x 21.5 cm)
