RCAF Sabre Mk. 6 – Kinetic 1/32

The Kinetic 1/32 F-86F done as an early RCAF Sabre Mk. 6 (hard leading edge wing) with Harold Offield's cockpit set and Leading Edge decals (which include the resin "sugar scoops" that are the visual difference between a Sabre 6 and an F-86). W[...]

1/48 ESCI F-86 Sabre

The price was right, and I had some old decals laying around, so this old bird got thrown together. Even though it's not even up to Monogram's standards, it still looks ok for it's age. The interior leaves a lot to be desired, as do most ESCI [...]

1/72 Matchbox F-86 Sabre

One of our club's themes, was "Snake Bit", or, "something with a snake". (I think the theme was chosen by a car builder, with a Shelby Cobra). Wanting to do something quick (and it shows), I chose the Matchbox F-86 Sabre, with the markings of[...]

48th scale North American F-86D Sabre Dog

This model represents the first production single seat fighter to which air-to-air missiles replace the classic gun armament. The Monogram kit is built out of the box and I do not recall any fit issues. I used several shades of Alclad paint loo[...]

Airfix Sabre Mk.4 in 1/72 scale

This is the first 1/72 scale model I've made since around 1990! I think Airfix are to be congratulated on producing such a fine kit. Our local IPMS club decided to do a 'Group Build' & we chose this scale & kit so as to keep the costs r[...]

Kinetic Kit.......Based in Tamiya bare metal silver (spray can) ....I shaded a couple panels with Alclad aluminum, Testors titanium, and some Floquil platinum mist. The wash used was the MIG pigment wash. The over coat was metalizer sealer with [...]

A brace of sabres

I thought we could get a series of these beauties going,the German one is the Revel kit ,actually a licence built Canadaire CL130 (correct me if I'm wrong) and the other is the Academy offering,I also have a Tamiya Mig 15 which splits to reveal[...]

How I started counting rivets….

I really like natural metal schemes and became a big fan of Allclad paint because of their color range and drying time. Then one day I ran across Mike Grant's website and saw he was offering rivets as a decal sheet. I hadn't had much luck with t[...]

Hobby Boss 1/48th Scale North American FJ-4 Fury

While I’m usually a “propeller” guy, I enjoy building early jet subjects from time to time for a change of pace. The FJ-4 was North American’s "Navalized" version of their famous F-86 Sabre. The kit was built for a good friend of mine who is an[...]

Monogram North American F-86F Sabre

As designers will tell you, if it looks right, it is right. Well, the North American F-86 Sabre just really looks right. Really right. With its sleek swept wings the Sabre was an elegant warplane. North American had started the XP-86 project[...]
