F-86F-30 Sabre 67th FBS, 18th FBG Korea Recently completed and last for 2019, is this fighter-bomber variant of an F-86 Sabre using the 1/72 Academy kit. Built mainly OOB but with scratch built bomb pylons, resin bombs and a mixture of kit and DIY decals. WiP here: Thanks to Martin ( @RidgeRunner ) for helping with the decal fonts and stuff. Thanks for looking. Happy Christmas to all. Stuart
Hi Guys, With the completion of the Seafoxes, I thought it was about time for another Sabre, namely a fighter-bomber variant from the 67th FBS, 18th FBG in Korea. The plan is to represent this aircraft (as good as any) from Ospreys 'F-86 Sabre Fighter-Bomber Units Over Korea' reference book. Having already built a small number of early Sabres, I don't envisage much in the way of problems as I haven't got to worry about back dating the wings. So this is a 6-3 wing, so I've got to check the wing fence position is correct and being a FB, will have to get my bomb and tank pylons correct. These birds could carry a 1000lb or two 500lb bombs, so I need to check if their was a dedicated wing for the 1000lb'er? Paint job is NMF with a pretty black/ red/ NMF nose. Decals shouldn't be any problem really except the 67th Sqn badge: Fortunately, a model buddy has fixed the skew and stuff and resized it for 1/72 but yet to print the decal. Kit of choice for this build is the Academy F-86F, No. 1629, if you're interested. This is a prequel and will be a slow start as I also want to get my SH-2 on my works bench. Any comments are welcome. Stuart
