I thought the same so had a trawl through all my saved pics and I actually found quite a few.  Interestingly no USAF or RCAF ones, but quite a few others, and quite a lot of CAC Sabres.

What was the percentage of RAF Sabres, and total Sabre pics ??

Now that the Airfix F86F-40 variant is available has anybody been able to assess whether a slatted RAF Sabre can be made from the kit?

Looks from the sprues it’s a yes if you cut the extended section out of the wing tips

Looks like a Canadair Mk 6 Sabre can be made however by cutting out the extended section at the wing tips.  I am surprised that a Mk 6 was not Airfix's second release rather than a F-86F-40.

I'm more surprised it wasn't an early F-86F! Oh no I'm not....
