Hasagawa 1/48 Canadair Sabre Mk5 "Frecce Tricolori" with a twist

December 6, 2012 · in Aviation · · 5 · 1.8K

So what do you do when you get two really cool sets of markings and only one model? Split the schemes! Blue side is 1963, and the black side is 1961. I painted the tricolour lower wing, but all the other markings are from the kit decal set. I mounted the model on a piece of curved acrylic rod to hold it 'in flight' over an octagonal mirror to show off the painted under side. Enjoy.
