Hasagawa 1/48 F-86F-40 Sabre of the J.A.S.D.F.

January 10, 2016 · in Aviation · · 5 · 2.3K

This is an other OOB build for an in club contest from a few years ago. Finish is overall aluminum with minimal weathering. Fun build, and fairly quick, too. All of the decal stencils were in blocks, and weren't too much of a challenge. Enjoy the pictures.

  1. Beautifully done, George...I wonder why the triangular ejection seat warning sign is so far to the rear of the fuselage rather than under/near the canopy/cockpit as most are?

  2. Good-looking finish - nice and clean. A fun scheme to see on the 86 also.

  3. Really nice looking Sabre,love the markings.

  4. Something a bit different George. Well maintained finish. Nice build all round.

    Nice build, the markings give it a very different look from what is mostly the norm, Craig took my query off me on the ejection seat warning sign.
