1/48 SAAF F86 Sabres in Korea

Here are my two models of the F86 Sabres as used ny No2 ‘Flying Cheetahs’ Sqn, SAAF in Korea.
1/48 ESCI kit – done as aircraft No 611 ‘Danny Boy’ with slatted wings and 1/48 Academy kit – done as aircraft No 622 ‘Lady of Lorette’ with wing fences
Note: 622 still carried the USAF serial on the tail and no ‘flying cheetah’ badges.
I had originally named 611 ‘Unjust Bruno’, but the name decals got damaged on a respray, so name changed.
Decals are aftermarket from MAV decals.
