RCAF F-86 Mk.5 Golden Hawks - 1/72 Hobbyboss


Recommended Posts

Happy to have finished my ninth aerobatic kit of the year.

This Hobbyboss kit is pretty good for how cheap it is. However, painting brought several drawbacks, especially with the masking. The "Sheffield Pale Gold" was created from Gold and Polished Brass (1/2 respectively) both Model Master, sealed with Humbrol Clear Gloss Varnish. Decals utilized were Leading Edge.

Cheers,

Orlando.

Very nice! Good to see another RCAF subject and a Sabre at that :winkgrin: ! Also made good use of those very nice Leading Edge decals. Shame they will not be doing anymore :weep:
