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[...]

F-86D Sabre Dog Jet

I use to buy lots of airplane magazine, so when this red Sabre was printed, I just had to have a model of it. It's mostly o.o.b. except for some additions to the cockpit.

On This Day 2 August 1990, Iraq invades Kuwait

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[...]

Just arrived on my porch: Kitty Hawk 1/48 FJ-2 Fury

Big announcement: Kitty Hawk is no longer S-h-itty Hawk here at Le Chateau du Chat. I took the plunge last week and picked up a new FJ-2 kit ($50 included delivery from Shenzen China), since the computer views I had seen looked better than prev[...]

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[...]

Hobbyboss 1/48 F8F-1 Bearcat

the Grumman F8F-1 Bearcat came on the scene too late to serve the U.S. Navy in WW11.. they were on the carriers halfway across the Pacific when the war with Japan ended...it was the fastest thing Grumman ever came up with to that point and pil[...]

“HUNS” over Europe

My special field of interest are cold war jets in their colorfull unit markings. Today I want to show you one of those birds, Trumpeter's F-100 D "Super Sabre" in 1:32 scale. With a couple of corrections a nice "Hun" can be built of of that c[...]

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[...]
