January 10, 2022 · in Aviation · · 6 · 1.4K

Hi to all
with best wishes to all for this 2022, first model finished.

Very old and well known .
I was not sure that i will do it at all as in stash already waiting Fujimi , Academy and Airfix plastic...but nostalgic reasons ...and is finished now, in colours and decals of from time of UN intervention in Congo (1962-63)
Colours Valejo, minimal weathering as IIAF Sabres was clean as new, At the end i hope you like it, to be honest i do 🙂

Best regards to all

  1. Amazing result out of the sweet Heller oldie, Djordje (it's difficult to resist building a Heller oldie, isn't it...).
    Well done!

  2. Looks amazing, Djordje @djordjestarcevic
    Especially the contrast differences in the various panels is great.
    Well done and Happy New Year

  3. I've never met a F-86 I didn't like. For it's time the Heller kit was the go too kit. A smart tight build and for the third time "Well done!".

    Two thumbs up.

    I had to smash the like button Djordje.

  4. Thank you all, yes, It is difficult to resist to these old Heller beauties 🙂

  5. Looks great in the IIAF livery. Interesting to see a glare panel that isn't black or OD. Well done.
