North American F-86D Sabre Dog

ProModeler's 1/48 scale Sabre Dog is available online from Squadron.com




This Pro Modeler's 1/48 scale North American F-86D Sabre Dog.



The kit was built straight from the box using the Twobobs Aviation Graphics IPMS/USA National Convention Decal Sheet.

The Twobobs sheet presents the modeler with a colorful option to dress the subject in the markings of the 42nd Fighter Interceptor Squadron stationed at O'Hare International Airport.



Metal replication was achieved using an SnJ basecoat, a mix of Alclads, and MM Metalizers. Eduard 1950's seatbelts were added to the seat for effect.

I chose to leave the brakes in the closed position based on the majority of reference photos which showed them closed on the ground.



This Promodeler 1/48 subject was well worth the wait.
