Sabre question please


Recommended Posts

Judging by the post Korean War drop tanks, I have a feeling that the aircraft depicted is a "warbird".  The batman emblem is probably fictitious and not necessarily the emblem for any true Korean War units flying F-86s, although I could be wrong.  Head over to




which is the serial number search section of Joe Baugher's website.  Punch in F-86 and the last three of the serial number, 139, and see what, if anything comes up.  Warbirds are notorious for fictional markings.

The 'No Jokers' art is owner Jim Woods' personal marking. So yes you could do it as a modern warbird, but you would need custom decals.

Hi guys,

I've been doing a bit of a magazine clear-out and found this:

My question is : do decals for these Batman symbol exist??


Here's hoping :)



Although Batman has existed as a character since 1939, the specific style of Batman logo depicted appears closest to the version developed for the 1989 film (the yellow oval background was first used in comics in 1964). So while there may have been some "Batman" nose art, it would definitely not look like what you see in the photo.


Not sure about current availability or which version(s) of the logo they include, but there are "Batman" licensed decal sets made for "Pinewood Derby" cars that might give you the basic batwing & oval design.

That is a civil registered F-86F, NX86F (ex 52-5139) owned by Heritage Aircraft Sales Inc in Indianapolis.
