This Monogram F-100D Super Saber is my oldest model . I built it when it first came out in the late 1970s when I was in high school in Monument, Colorado. My Badger Wren airbrush was used to paint it with Polly S paints . I’m sure Testors tub[...]
Built in 2018.
One of my dad´s excursions to the post WW2 era.
Like all Trumpeter kits, also this one has dimensional and shape issues, but it looks like a Super Sabre.
Super Scale (Squadron) decals, painted with Tamiya XF-16 Aluminium, AGM-12 r[...]
on May 25, 1953, the Air Force’s official air demonstration team, designated the 3600th Air Demonstration Unit, was activated at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz. The unit adopted the name “Thunderbirds,” influenced in part by the strong Native A[...]
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[...]
Trumpeter 1/48 F-100D, S/N 63-000, Triple Zilch. This is one of the most iconic color schemes for the Super Sabre, and I know I won’t be the last to attempt it. This jet was the personal mount of USAF Col. Raymond F. Toliver, Commander of the 2[...]

So here's my just completed Trumpeter 1:48 'Hun'. What a kit !!, simply fell together with almost no input from me. Only additions are a Quickboost seat and Eduard pre-painted etch set for the pit - neither of which are actually 'need[...]
Hello friends, this is one of my older builds from 2014...I like the Sabre very much, also the colorful markings on those old birds. It must have been like riding a bullett when flying with it - can only imagine that ;-)
The Kit was fantastic to[...]
Fresh off the bench is my latest, the North American F-100D Super Sabre, a Trumpeter 1/48 scale kit.
I didn't start out to build models of jets, but this my 3rd one now, so I guess they are pretty fun too.
The kit offers 4 marking schemes, two[...]
this is the Trumpeter F-100C kit which I built some 3 years ago. I had absolutely no trouble with it apart from a little bit of fettling around the air intake. Finish is Alclad & decals by Xtra Decals. The weathering is very conservative but[...]
