Just noticed: your horizontal stabilizers are upside-down (swapped left and right): the vortex generators should go on the underside. Minor fix hopefully!

Ooh - one to go? Sounds interesting: which scheme?

It is the later version with two options. One from the Royal Danish airforce ESK 726 from 1959 and from the 94th FIS Selfridge AFB 1959, USAF.

Aha - which one are you doing?

Still undecided, both look great a danish Sabre is quite exotic. Most builds depicting USAF birds.

The first question is how the decals work. The kit is stashed for a longer time.

Thanks for the hint with the stabilizers !

I'd certainly go for the Danish: decals should be OK too. But how about a simple conversion to update it to a late-service F-86D? You'd only need a new seat (resin MB Mk.5) and a set of Sidewinders + rails. Decals shouldn't be too much bother either, since you'd use most of the kit decals aside from a few simple serial numbers:

 

51-6123

 

Here's a larger image (photo RDAF/my collection) 51-6123 '16123/F-123':

And a few (all via Egon Sorensen) 51-6119 '16119/F-119':

 

1 51-6119 Egon Sorensen

 

61-6037 '16037/F-037':

 

1 51-6037 Egon Sorensen (2)

 

51-6052 '16052/F-052':

 

1 51-6052

 

And two more from my collection (source not known):

 

51-5977 '15977/F-977':

 

1 51-5977a

 

51-5960 '15960/F-960' (note no Sidewinders or TACAN and still with NAA seat):

WOW ! Thanks for sharing these excellent photos and additional informations.

I knew about the Sidewinders but not about the ejection seat.

The aircrafts look really polished on the photos.
