  1. Very thorough presentation/ work lad. My congrats and good luck with the rest of your build. The only reason I would choose the Tamiya kit over the Airfix is because of the kit's better quality plastic. The Airfix plastic is very soft and in some kits I bought recently part of the wings were 'wraped'. I can't understand why Airfix insists on using the specific quality of plastic.

    Hi Steve, Actually, I am building right now the Airfix 1/72 Sabre as an F-86E(M), the only version besides the "A" that had the reinforced windscreen (that's how I know and told Duncan about it) and I have bought the Pavla canopy. In contrast, to Duncan's work I have to install the reinforced glass. Cheers Bill (aka Shalako)

    spot on paint work!!! However, I noticed that the kit doesn't give the reinforced windscreen. Pity because it is the most characteristic detail on the specific version of the Sabre. Again, excellent work!!!

    Hi Giorgio, Many thanks for your reply lad. Much like the company's F-5s and harriers, this one looks pretty nice and cheap, I just bought one (the twin-seat) from Ebay!!! Now, I only need some resin seats and a new exhaust. Cheers

    Buona Sera Giorgio! I have heard what you're saying about the airbrakes from a fellow modeller. He told me that by adding a millimetre or so, or placing in the open position the airbrakes the shape issue is not that obvious. He also told me that I should pay attention to the instrument panels because there is a significant gap between their end and the cockpit's floor (single and twin-seat).

    Hi Mark, Kingkit still has it therefore I was wondering if anyone has build this kit (single or two-seat version). Since it is an 1980s kit perhaps it depicts the "A" model (accurately)? Cheers Bill

    I have read all the reviews and comments for the Revell, Hasegawa, and etc F-16s, however, I've noticed that no one mentions the ESCI F-16s. Anyone knows how accurate or not, are these kits?

    Jolly good job!!!
  13. Hi BP85, The kit you're building brings back a lot of memories!! Now, I don't won't to discourage you but, you could have worked a little bit more on sanding the areas where you have applied the Humbrol filler, and I'm referring to the airframe-wings joints. The filler is still obvious in those areas. Cheers Sernak
