I started this kit many years ago, but just finished it in the last year or so. I don’t think I originally intended to do it as an RAF machine, but I really like the classy RAF camo and squadron markings, so that’s how it turned out.
The model [...]
Chino 2014. First display by the Bremont Horsemen, the first F-86 flight demonstration team since the JASDF Blue Impulse and the RAAF Black Panthers. The only civilian team ever..
Sorry for the (photographically) horrid shot. I went to the[...]
This model was exhibited a week ago at Mosonmagyarovar model show, last day under it I found the invitation to join you on this nice website.
