Monogram 1/48 F-86 Sabre Capt. Joseph McConnell First Triple Jet Ace…

Ever since I saw the movie "The McConnell Story" with Alan Ladd I wanted to do his aircraft. This is the old kit. Very nice kit but not as good as the newer ones out now. but back in the day when i did this one it was the only game in town except for the kit. Anyway, I used Superscale decals for this one. I'd like to re-do this one with a kit, but have not had the funds to do it. It was a fun build and when I look at it, I remember my dad and I sitting in the living room watching Alan Ladd acting tough...

  1. That kit still makes up nicely. You've done excellent work here. You should consider getting the 1/32 Kinetic kit, which has these markings, and the AMS Resins cockpit. You'd have a lot of fun.
