 I'm building a F-84F used in the movie 'The Hunters' (1958, Robert mitchum, Robert Wagner), a war movie about dogfights in Korean war.
Use an old Airfix 1:72.
Drew and printed decals my own.
F-84F were use as fake Mig 15. I want to reproduce the airplane of the North Korean ace, called 'Casey Jones' by Americans...

Close to a Top Gun 'MiG' and a T-6 'Zero', this would make a whole family. The one you are referring too is the most unknown, congratulations to have find it.
[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]

Built a 'Mig 28' two years ago, one of my first model after the 'long dark age'... and i will build a 'T6-Zero' soon... probably from the movie 'Operation Pettycoat' (A T6 without changes).

Thanks.

I love the way they've tried to make the nose markings look all korean and foreign and what not by using the same font as every chinese take away under the sun  :thumbsup:
There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.

This was the movie that got all those Chinese take-aways using that font! :P

I like it! Inspired! I'd love to see more of this sort of build!

And don't take the easy way out and build an unmodified T-6 Zero, go for the Tora birds! Here's one I prepared earlier: http://modelingmadness.com/reviews/mod/yatest6m.htm

Added 'Casey Jones', as seen in the movie.


A lot of putty to close fusolage... were canyons !!!

You could do all the "Migs" and "Yaks" shown in the John Wayne movie, "Jet Pilot".  They were F-86s, F-80s, F-89s and a couple of prototypes (which escape me at the moment).

Why not, i have that movie. Remember a P-80, light blu underface and green up. A big '2' on fusolage.
Italian title of the movie is really stupid: 'Il pilota razzo e la bella siberiana' (The rocket pilot and the beautiful siberian lady)...
