Revell 1/48 F-86D Sabre in Greek Colors
This was a really fun build of one of the most detailed Revell kits I have seen. As I was researching info on F-86D’s in the Hellenic Air Force, I discovered that F-86D’s sold to foreign air forces were equipped with Sidewinders. So I had to source the missiles and pylons. By a lucky coincidence, I discovered that many of the F-86E models with decals for foreign operators also come with the Sidewinders. So I raided a Hasegawa F-86E that I had and found that the pylons fit the wing perfectly.
I thought F-4 Phantoms had a lot of decals to add, but this kit had 150 or more decals to place. Lots of stencils.
I documented the entire build in the Work in Progress Group, so please drop in there if you want to know more about this build.
Cheers, and stay safe.
