1/48 Canadair Sabre, 427 Sqdn

Recommended Posts

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.X_2ajDBU_AMhVyO16IdHsvO5_tYHt4wcQAne0sCP

 

 

 

Unfortunately the decals had a tendency of silvering.

Painted with Mr.Paint and weathered with Ammo of Mig products.

Thanks for looking 🙂

Nice work.  The serial number of 23527 makes this aircraft a Mk6, which did come from the factory with a hard edge wing. 

 

Great to see a nice clean Sabre build, well done.

 

Cheers, Tony

Lovely Sabre and it looks nice in that scheme. I built one a few years ago and it just fell together (gun hatches excepted).

 

How did you prevent it being a tail sitter?

Thank you! Yes, it builds really well. I personally think Revell kits are really worth the money. I have previously build their F-86D.

 

I used a led clay product from Uschi van der Rosten called Three Green. It conforms well into the small spaces around the intake.
