  5. Hi comrades! So, here my F-86F-25 USAF 53rd Fighter Day Squadron, Bitburg AB-Germany, mid 1950s finished. The build is here It was my first try of NMF, and I made a lot of critical mistakes in every possible area... 1) Hasegawa kit is fantastic! Built OOB with only addition of ejection seat by Quickboost. Decals was dead (after 20 years... - my fault), but some of them were cured with liquid decal film. 2) Prototype - I'm not a Sabre fun, so my basic research was limited just to find the right decals for the type of the wing in my box. A missed th
  6. Hi, Please find my latest completion, the f-86K in Netherlands air force markings by MustHave models. I found this a very nice kit to build. It is basically the revell f-86D, but with 2 injection moulded fuselage halves in order to make a "K". Some photo etch and resin is supplied in the kit as well, but not too useful apart from the seat belts. As usual there were some challenges along the way, but all of my own making. The only item that I couldn't get to fit perfectly was the canopy, so I decided to place it in the open position. (Although I did make some pics wi
  7. Hi, Received a MustHave f-86K through the post today, so this will be my next project for the next few weeks. The kit looks great with lots of options for markings, but I will go for the RNLAF version. Time to start.....
  8. I have noticed a number of modelers on BM that seem to have long running threads of their builds and thought that that would be very useful for my finished Sabres. So here we go. F-86A Sabre 'Miss Louise, 4th FIW, USAF, Kimpo AFB, Korea, cir. 1951. Built from the Hobbycraft kit; backdated the wings, pylons moved inboard, correct gun-sight fitted, got rid of the tail plane actuator fairings, Pavla canopy. Humbrol Metalcote Polished Aluminium enamel paint. Decals from Matchbox kit. TF-86F 2-Seater Sabre Trainer Fuselage is a Vacform by Falcon. Everythi

  10. Here is my 1/48 Hasegawa Canadair Sabre MkVI in FAC markings (Colombian Air Force). Un saludo.
  11. Hi all. After watching this YouTube video I find myself deficient of a Fighter Bomber Sabre in my growing collection of Sabres in 1/72. Firstly, can anybody tell me where the bomb pylon would be located as I have heard/ read and seen different things. I've read that due to fuel tank plumbing, the bomb pylon is located further outboard but the video shows it located inboard of wing tank? Does anybody have a better image of the bomb pylon? Does a decal sheet exist for Fighter Bomber Unit from Korea, for an F-86 Sabre? Hopefully @Sabrejet, @Tony Edmundson and other hel
  12. F-86F-25/30 Sabre (F-40 Wing) (72-064 & 48-034) 1:48 & 1:72 Hi-Decal Line There are quite a few F-86 Sabre models out there, however the decal options in the kits tend to be pretty standard. If you want something a little different the Hi-Decal have a sheet out in 1/72 & 1/48 for those used by the lesser know Air Forces. The options on the sheet are; F-86F-25 51-13244 / 3-133 - 103rd TFS, Imperial Iranian Air Force, in Natural Metal Finish, deployed to Kamina AB,Congo, in 1963 as part of the UN Fighter Wing during the Katanga c
  13. F-86 Sabre | Airfix | 1/72 Pakistan -- Muhammad Alam, Pilot I completed this kit in November of 2017 and felt I should post it because I mention it in a post about Alclad and Decal incompatibilities. I intended this kit to be a Norwegian F-86 as part of a project of mine to make a model of every major Norwegian fighter. As such, I intended it to be an "Airshow" finish -- That is, like a mirror (which I'd done before on a Hasagawa Sabre). The Airfix Sabre plastic seemed kind of rough, so I sanded it with progressively finer paper down to 12000 grit. When the Alclad
  14. Here a a comparison build between a Hobbycraft and an Aifix F-86 aircraft. The silver aircraft is the Hobbycraft and the Golden Hawk is the Airfix. Although the Hobbycraft is much older I did prefer this version over the AIrfix. No Measurement just build and details. I thought the Hobbycraft was more detailed. Although they are different versions the basic kit is my judgement point. I added Pavla seats to both models and sprinkled some Eduard Photo-etched in both interiors. Both models used Alclad over Black decanted Tamiya rattle can for primer.
  15. Hi Folk's finally after a good half dozen epic fail's I've moved out of WW2 into the jet age(apart from the recent Meteor),built for the ongoing NATO GB it's Hobbyboss's little easy kit of the Luftwaffe of JG 71 in1963.The kit i'm told has the wrong wing for this aircraft but for just over four quid I'm not loosing any sleep over it the kit decal's were used and were pretty good too.Many thank's for looking in.
  16. This is the Kinetic kit, straight out of the box. It's a decent kit, but it does has issues. The fit in places is not the best and the instructions could be clearer in terms of colour call outs. They also misnumber numerous parts and decals, so you need to read the instructions carefully. Decals settle down nicely, but the black tulip on the nose has cut outs for the gun ports that don't line up. Thus I had to fill in the gaps with some leftover white decal and black paint. It was meant to be a quicker build, but ended up taking 4 months! I'm pretty please though with how it's turned out. I've
  17. Do you remember the old 1/72 Matchbox Sabre? I must have made about half a dozen back at the turn of the 80s/90s when I was a kid. I really liked the shape of the aircraft and the cool Arizona Air National Guard decals, not that I really understood what the ANG was back then. I usually built them 'in'flight', it was the quickest and easiest way to get kits built and I was impatient to have a finished 'plane (later, I started doing them gear-down and open cockpit, and I remember being proud of how good they look. They where probably terrible). Browsing Hannats website I happened across Microsca
  18. Good day, gentlemen. This is my next model. I used 3 sets of resin parts to build this model. It was very hard to put all these sets inside one plane.
  19. After taking up the hobby again after a long hiatus, I had in mind building and finishing one kit at a time at a relaxed pace. I didn't want a room full of half built carcases laying about contributing to any guilt feelings I might have about unfinished kits. However, after breaking off half of the lower wing of the Camel, which is now toast, and after seeing the film Bridge of Spies, I quickly developed an interest in Lockheed's U-2 and then the F-5F The U-2 is well along now and is waiting a coat of grey on the undersides but that won't happen for a while as I have to spray in the garage

  21. The first scale model was completed this year. The old Airfix models, very dear to Me. The scale model represents the plane of the Yugoslav Air Force, used 60-ies. Here are pictures, enjoy.
  22. Hi all, can an anyone out there confirm for me that the Sabres flown by Iran and Ethiopia (ex Iran) had the slatted short wing and not the 6-3 wing? As far as I can see from photos it was the slatted wing but various artists of profiles show the 6-3. As always, your advice is always gratefully received. Thanks. Martin
  23. Hello all, I am seeking advice on how to construct an F-86F Sabre that is in-flight but has jettisoned its drop tanks (e.g. when the Sabres were about to engage Migs): Should I attach the drop tank rack/connector(?) to the wing undersides, or omit all such parts and just fill the holes on the wing underside? (I am using the Airfix 1/72 kit for the F86-F/E; # A03082A) I've searched many images on the web and modelling forums, but haven't found anything useful, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. By the way, I have only just started making models in the last couple of months with my
  24. North American F-86 Sabre 1:48 Eduard Ultimate The North American Sabre is one of the worlds most recognisable fighter aircraft, made famous by its use in the first Jet vs Jet Air combat battles of the Korean war. North American were able to use captured German research data on swept wing aerodynamics which was able to push the then XP-86 to the required speed of 600mph as required by the USAF. The first flight of the XP-86 would be in late 1947. Even though the US Air Force would retire its sabres in the 1960's the Air National Guard would fly them into the 1970's. The Sabre was used by
