F-86D Sabre Dog

July 30, 2021 · in Aviation · · 5 · 1.6K

This the kit. The build is SOB except for the pitot tube from Hobbydecal. It's a nice edition. The black “darts” on the tail and drop tanks are cut from black decal sheet. -Color scheme taken from the internet site- SabresandFuries. Many great color schemes. -The paints used are Alclad, Tamiya, AK Real colors, and ModelMaster. Decals taken from Hobbydecal sheet and the kit. -The kit overall wasn't too difficult except for the area around the rocket rack. Multiple fit and adjustment attempts done with the rack. - I was leery of the intake area, but again multiple fit and adjustment attempts resulted in good results. Presented less problem than than rocket pack for me.
