Academy's 1/48 scale Sabre is available online from
Here is Red Roo Models Avon Sabre conversion in 1/48
The base kit used is Academy's F-86F.
The cockpit was enhanced with the Aires F-86F cockpit set. The only problem
mating this set with the Red Roo conversion, was the tub fit. As the conversion
is limited run itís quite thick and the walls of the Aries tub are quite large -
major surgery is required.
I chose to use the kit tub and add some of the detail from
the Aires set after cutting it off.
The kit is finished in Humrol enamels, and Tamiya clear gloss.
