An old NMF example from the past. This is 1/48 Hasegawa F-86 E(M) Sabre with Turkish Air Force (TuaF) markings.
Most RCAF Sabre Mk 2 and 4 aircrafts were retrofitted with extended wing leading edges and then sold to foreign air forces. These pla[...]

This new-tool kit is a [...]

Three Hasegawa 1/32 P-26As, using the Yellow Wings Decals sheets for the 17th Pursuit Group when based at March Field in summer of 1935 shortly after their delivery from the factory. Modelers should note that these P-26As all had the OD fuselag[...]
The machine was built from the 1:48 Hasegawa kit, the white crosses, as well as the boundary lines are taped off and sprayed.
The German Kubelwagen comes from Tamiya, the characters are from ICM.
