F-86F-25/30 Sabre (F-40 Wing) (72-064 & 48-034) - 1:48 & 1:72 Hi-Decal Line

Recommended Posts

 F-86F-25/30 Sabre (F-40 Wing) (72-064 & 48-034)

1:48 & 1:72 Hi-Decal Line




There are quite a few F-86 Sabre models out there, however the decal options in the kits tend to be pretty standard. If you want something a little different the Hi-Decal have a sheet out in 1/72 & 1/48 for those used by the lesser know Air Forces.


The options on the sheet are;


  1. F-86F-25 51-13244 / 3-133 - 103rd TFS, Imperial Iranian Air Force, in Natural Metal Finish, deployed to Kamina AB,Congo, in 1963 as part of the UN Fighter Wing during the Katanga crisis.
  2. F-86F-25 51-13224 / 3-140 - 41st TFS, Imperial Iranian Air Force, in Asia Minor camouflage scheme,4 TFB Vahdati, 1969
  3. F-86F-25 51-13240 / 275 - 1st Fighter Bomber Sqn, Imperial Ethiopian Air Force, in Asia Minor camouflage, Asmara AB, 1972
  4. F-86F-30 52-4576 / "DRAGON" - 9th TFS, 5th TFW, Philippine Air Force, in Jungle camouflage, Edwin Andrews AB, Mindanao,1973.




The sheets provide all the national markings as well as stencils for each option. The information concerning the Ethiopian option has only just been researched by Hi-Decal.  Registration, sharpness and colour density are all good, with a thin gloss carrier film cut close to the printed areas.  


Recommended for your next Sabre build if you like a little something different to the kit options.
