  1. 2019 being the year of getting stuff done, I decided to finally get round to something that's been on my mind for a loooong time: a 1/48 F-86A. Now most of you will have been gnashing teeth for years that the 'A' model Sabre hasn't ever been accurately kitted and the two 'F-86A' kits which do exist are not worthy of the name (the awful 1/72 Matchbox kit and Lindberg's '1/48' thing step forward). So my idea is to in 1/48 scale combine an accurate Eduard/Hasegawa F-86F fuselage with the only decent narrow-chord slatted wing - that of Revell/Monogram's F-86D. Easy eh? So obviously there's more to it than that - quite a lot more in fact - but having had the kits for some while, I couldn't think of a decent excuse not to have a go. Colour scheme will likely be an 81st Fighter Group machine, avoiding the usual 116th FIS scheme (which Corgi got wrong on its diecast by the way). I'm using the Eduard 'Ultimate Sabre' kit, plus some Brassin wheels and Revell's 'early' F-86D, though the wing is the same as the 'late' version. So to start with, the fuselage. Lots to do here, and here are the fuselage halves before hacking about: And this is a starting point for what needs to be done (plus the windshield of course): Wish me luck!
