F-86 F Sabre 1:48

The F-86 Sabre is the Korean war big hero by being the victorious against the Mig -15
with a kill ratio of between 1:8 to 1:10 depending on the source - of course the Russians always claimed the opposite!
This model is a repainted version made by my colleague Asaf N and is from Ecardmodels.
The only thing that is missing is a vacform canopy 1:48.
If some one can help me with this topic I would be grateful ! (from where to order )
Some images of this wonderful fighter.

Yair,


Very nice looking Sabre, great build.



As for a canopy, I'll leave that question to be answered by the experts like Isaac.

I thought the same as Gary in regards to the canopy, Isaac is an expert on that. Sabre looks magnificent Yair, this plane was also in the aviation of my country.

Thanks Don - I really like the art work on the fuselage as there were many F-86 planes painted with - I remember the Dragon huff.

Sabre F-86 vs Mig -15 Pictures

Some pictures of the Korean war heroes !
The mig-15 and F-86 side by side . The Sabre is longer and has wider wings. Both are in 1:48 scale and from Ecardmodels.
The Sabre with the RAF airforce and the Mig -15 with the Yemen airforce.
