North American F-86 D “Sabre Dog early” in 1/48 scale
September 5, 2014 in Aviation
Hi another “walkaround” this time on my Revell/Monogram F-86D everthing is written about the quality of this kit it s true, simply great…and cheap.
My version is the earlier type without the parachute housing at the tail, Revell provided three very nice schemes on their decal sheet, but the one with the sharkmouth was the one.
Revell named it as a
F-86 D-35 NA Sabre
75th Fighter Interceptor Squadron
Suffolk County,AFB in August 1953
I store my instructions and not used decals in files.Which is helpful
The kit was done in summer 2013, put aside for a while and was finished in the last spring
i used Humbrol and Revell colors and polished the NMF parts a bit with tooth paste. Sadly
i damaged the windscreen a bit and was forced to made the framing a bit wider.
The pictures were taken on different times and on different backdrops in the garden
on a sunny day. There is still a nasty spot on the OD panel 🙁
I hope you like it
