48th scale North American F-86D Sabre Dog

July 12, 2013 · in Aviation · · 15 · 1.8K

This model represents the first production single seat fighter to which air-to-air missiles replace the classic gun armament.

The kit is built out of the box and I do not recall any fit issues. I used several shades of Alclad paint looking for that natural metal finish. I also used Mike Grant decal rivets for added detail. I picked this scheme because I liked the Dennis the Menace graphic.

  1. You've certainly captured the natural metal finish, Jack, and the photographs are very good indeed. Interestingly, Dennis the Menace is a comic book hero in the UK, he's a very naughty schoolboy, not sure if this is the same Dennis!

    • George... Well the picture of Dennis on the plane sure looks like the comic character that I'm familiar with. Dennis isn't really a naughty kid in the US, just a bit hyper-active and a typical little boy.
