Multi Colored Canadian F-86 Sabre Jet

Seven (7) has always been my "lucky" number and these 7 images show off my Mk-5 Sabre Jet. I have no idea what the "Mk-5" means and I don't think I did any research. I don't have a photo of the box art, nor do I recall why I chose to build a Ca[...]

Hasegawa 1/48 USAF F-86F

Hello! This is my post Korean F-86F from Hasegawa. Very nice kit, no issues at all. Since the decals were quite old and "yellowed", I got a new set from Aeromaster. Metallic paint were automotive types and the rest from Gunze acrylics. Hope [...]

Hobbyboss F-80 C Shooting Star “Saggin Dragon”

Although serving in small numbers towards the end of World War II, Lockheed’s pugnacious fighter made a name for itself as a fighter and strike bomber during the Korean War. To commemorate the start of the Korean War 70 years ago and to pay homa[...]

1/48 Scale F-86 RCAF Sabre Jet.

About 17 years ago I found some "Royal Canadian Air Force F-86 Sabre Jet" decals for sale at an "on-line" hobby shop in Canada. I emailed and got a reply then sent some money for two sets. The 2nd set was bought just in case I screwed up a deca[...]

Revell F-86F

All raised details have been rescribed, a lot of scratch inside the cockpit because it was completly wrong for the F model of the aircraft, hypodermic needle pitot tube, movable flaps, fuselage drains drilled and opened, scratch built intake cov[...]

Decal’s My Way

My favorite jet has always been the F-86 Sabre, thus when I saw this kit via "Scalehobbyist" I bought it for several reasons. One reason is: I like what we call here in America "Flashie Things" and the paint application on this jet just made m[...]

F-86D from Revell of Germany 1/48

Due to a very busy schedule it’s been a while since I completed anything. So I thought I’d post one from a little bit ago. This is Revell of Germany’s kit, and in my opinion certainly one of the best fitting kits I’ve worked on. The finish is [...]

F-86D 1/48 Revell

A year ago I said I was not going to deal with resin and photographed parts for the models or the rivet counting. I'm just glueing myself. Just to explain why this is so. I take this activity as a relaxation. The Revell model is very cool and th[...]

1/48 Revell F-86D

I finished this one a couple of months ago, I'm still looking for a good BMF paint. This one was painted with Alclad. This is a really nice kit to build and I used the kit decals which went on with no issues and using decal solvent. I have anoth[...]

Hasegawa 1/48 F-86F-30 Sabre “The Huff”

Lt. Jim Thompson piloted this aircraft out of Suwon AFB South Korea. In May 1953 he scored his first kill, a Russian MiG-15 flown by a red Chinese pilot. The MiG had a marvelous dragon painted on the nose which enamoured Jim so much he ran to h[...]
