North American F-86F/E(M) Sabre - 1:72 Airfix

Recommended Posts

How hard would it be for Airfix (or any one ells for what it matter) to make an F-86D with this kit? Just an new nose and fuselage halves?
Are those wings usefull for an F-86D or does Airfix have to make an completely new kit?

They would only have to put a new fuselage, wings, tail planes, canopy etc.

There was only a 25% cominalty of parts between the F and the D. It suffered from the same problem as the F-84E and F. The USAF decided to limit cash for new aircraft so manufactures came up with the idea of making a new model of an existing aircraft even though when in effect it was a new aircraft.

 

In fact in terms of the F-86D ut was really an F-95.

Add F9F- Panther/Cougar to the list.   I think it was the US Government rather than USAF who made the limitations
