  1. This is a placeholder, as I might not be able to start this for some time. The original catalogue number was 277. This could easily qualify as a "kit you never built as a kid", and so on. I am building the Heller-Humbrol boxing, which includes the Norwegian markings that were dropped from later Heller releases: There's a school of thought that says this is really a Canadair-specific version, and as such the USAF subject (John Glenn) is not kosher. At any rate, I plan on building the JG 71 aircraft.
  2. Very Colourful Sabres (ED-32101) 1:32 Euro Decals by Fantasy Printshop Ltd. The North American F-86 Sabre rose to fame as the main American Fighter in the Korean War, and continued its service into the Cold War. As well as being used by the UASF many were supplied to Various US Allies. Sabres were also licenced built many by Canadair and some by Mitsubishi. Here Fantasy Printshop have upscaled their Colourful Sabres sheet to 1/32 The Options available on this sheet are; F-86A 91021 - Montana Air National Guard. This aircraft with an overall bri

  6. I started this 1/48th Academy F-86F Sabre in February and after some long time gaps have completed her 20200805_184347 by Ghostbase, on Flickr The kit is the c. 2000 Academy F-86F "Mig Killer", I was quite impressed with the kit for the detail and how easily it went together, it proved to be an enjoyable build and I am reasonably pleased with the finished model. 20200805_184408 by Ghostbase, on Flickr She was painted using a spray can, I think it was Humbrol 11 silver, and all other colours were brushed using Vallejo acrylics. In reality she is
  7. 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
  8. At some point I'm planning on building my Airfix Sabre F.4, but I must say I'm rather underwhelmed by the decals. Apart from the shark mouth, they're a little boring in my opinion and an odd choice given that in the 50s there were a few Sabre squadrons with lovely garish unit markings! Fortunately, when I bought the kit from eBay, it very nicely included an Xtradecal set with markings for a few different Sabres (though frustratingly no serials!!) I'm thinking of doing a 92 sqn one, with a preference for an XB... serial and silver undersides. I was wondering if anyone ma
  9. Started as part of last year's 50s NATO v Warsaw Pact in Europe GB and completed as far as it will get, this is the 1979 vintage ESCI 1/48th scale North American F-86F Sabre operated by the Spanish Ejercito Del Aire from 1955 onwards, built OOB using the original kit decals. I have added "illusion" to the title because all is not what it seems with this kit, ESCI marketed the kit as an F-86E but supplied decals for the F-86F, the kit itself is most likely a Canadair Mk.5 or 6 with a 6-3 wing with leading edge slat and no outward wing extension. I rapidly learned much about the various Sabre wi
  10. Hi Guys! here is my 1/48 Musthave F-86K. The K was derivative of the D Sabre Dog and was fitted with cannons in stead of the rocket pack fitted on D models. This meant the centre of gravity changed and thus the fuselage was lengthened. Musthave has taken the standard RevellOgram F-86D kit and supplemented it with a new injection K fuselage which fits perfectly!. My model depicts machine from 702 squadron Royal Netherlands airforce in 1959. I've painted it with AK extreme metal colours. Erik
  11. I finished this a couple of weeks ago. First thing - a big shoutout of thanks to theplasticsurgeon who very kindly sent me a replacement set of Airfix decals This was languishing on a shelf waiting to be finished. It just lacked the decals. Despite two (or more coats) of Liquid Decal Film my original Airfix decals just splintered into pieces.
  12. Hi all, Finally, I have the next one wheeled out of the paint shop. I had some delay because the white star decals I needed went out-of-stock. She is an F-86F-30 with the -40 wing, as supplied to Venezuela from US stocks in the late 1950s. You will have seen an earlier iteration of this machine when I built her around five years. I chose to build her again as I like the markings. These markings are of the earlier type, i.e. without the “wings” on the roundels. These gradually changed from 1958 following the January 1958 attempted Military coup. She is “8C36” in the old
  13. Bronco Models is to release a 1/48th North American F-86F-30 Sabre kit - ref. FB40411 Sources: http://www.moxingfans.com/new/news/2019/0809/6153_2.html http://www.moxingfans.com/uploads/allimg/190809/1_190809163830_8.jpg For me, a N.A F-86H Sabre Hog in the same scale please... V.P.
  14. Hello! It's my next model. Bu putty, super glue and sandpaper was in my hands. Some details didn’t fit well As addition I used resin wheels Reskit, Eduards photoetching set. Painting-Hataka Weathering -oil dots, washes and salt dots. Scratches and chipped- silver pencil.

  16. Having completed a Special hobby F-86H last year, and a hybrid CAC Avon Sabre last week (see below), this in theory gives me more time to work on the 1/72 Sedbergh glider ..................... however I'm already suffering Sabre withdrawal, so need to get another underway. RFI's for both can be found on here. I am a little spoilt for choice on the matter of which Sabre to build next: In the end the chosen one is this, mainly because I actually have two of this one! I am undecided on exactly which scheme to do at the moment, but any suggestio
  17. OK, we've got an Airfix Hunter currently on its way to Chez FC courtesy of eBay, however as I'm chomping at the bit to start another build now that my Blenheim WIP is coming to an end, my thoughts have turned to it's immediate predecessor, the Canadair Sabre Mk F.4, which served with the RAF as an interim solution until the Hunter entered service. Let's have a look at what we've got then. Here are the box and sprue shots: ....... and as a teaser was showing in the first photo here's the full package showing most of what we are going to add to Revell's
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Hi, Recently finished my RCAF Canadair Sabre from 427 Sqdn. I used the Academy F-86F-30 kit OOB except for the Aires seat and True Details wheels. The Leading Edge decals turns it into a Hard Wing F-86-30 style from Zweibrücken, Germany in 1957. The tail markings is from the Weapons Meet Cazaux, France. Unfortunately the decals had a tendency of silvering. Painted with Mr.Paint and weathered with Ammo of Mig products. Thanks for looking //Fred
  21. Hi folks, Here are a few pictures of my F-84-F40 Sabre from 338 Sqn, RNoAF Ørland, in 1963. I used the Revell Canadair Sabre Mk.6 kit and added some extras, including a Martin Baker seat (from Eduard's F-8 Crusader) I also used KASL Hobby's slats and flaps together with wheels from Eduard. The very nice and thin decals are from Norwegian Vingtor. She is painted with Alclad2 and Gunze, and weathered with Ammo of Mig products. It was just a pleasant build all the way Thank'
  22. Concerning NMT F-86 Sabre... ...is there any "rules" in what parts of the aircraft that should be in darker or more "greyish" aluminium (except from gunplates and the rear part). Looking att pictures for example it's hard to see any differences in shade between slats, flaps, ailerons and other parts of the wings. Sometimes some parts have been more polished than other. But in the long run it's hard to detect that some parts on the wings of the fuselage should be moore dark or greyish aluminium than other parts on an F-86. Or where som parts factorypainted in silver as
  23. The RAF operated the Sabre as a stop-gap measure during the early 50s until enough Hunters had been delivered, as it had become evident that the Meteor was by then obsolete as an air defence fighter. Although there was one wing in the UK, most RAF Sabres were based in Germany, and flew with cerulean blue undersides. One of the more colourful squadron markings were those of no. 4 squadron which flew the aircraft from RAF Jever.
  24. After a brief hiatus it's back to the Cold War RAF modelling, and what better way to resume than with an RAF Sabre F.4. I'm thinking I'll do it as a 4 Sqn aircraft as these markings are quite eye-catching. I was going to make a 92 Sqn one with silver undersides, but I don't have any suitable XD serials, so I'll have to see if I can use the kit ones for an XB serialled jet and maybe swap some numbers around or look in the spares bag. Looks like the kit has the '6-3' leading edges, so I'll need to make sure I pick the right serial for this too.
