Ah, forgot about that one, thanks EB!  Looks very similar to Gregs profile bash, in plan view at least.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

There's another french plane from the mid-50's similar to the Delta 100 see :

KJ if you check out my thread on the Delta 100 I blended the wing roots with tank halfs so it does actually pinch right about the middle of the wing. I actually thought about adding bulges towards the rear (conformal tanks :blink:) but I'm not doing it on my model. :rolleyes: ;D

Hmm, a delta Sabre and mentions of T-tails ...

In 1958, Canadair proposed a twin JT-12 strike aircraft -- the CL-76 -- using Sabre bits. That would give you something to do with those now-spare F-86 wings. Not sure what this beastie would've looked like but Canadair's Sabre-based bizjet was to have a T-tail.

Does anyone know if there is a conversion kit available to do a TF-86 in 1/48?



I have a hankering to try to do the CA-28 ‘Sabre Dingo’ in Plastic:

Didn't Falcon do one in their 'Triple Conversion' series?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Not in 1/48 scale, Kit.  I've got a couple of them in the 1/72 in the stash though.  The PAK-20 book doesn't list one from any outfit either, but that doesn't mean there might not be one.

Whiffing Markings and Paint schemes for an F-86 is a tough job.  As it is, just about every non-Warsaw Pact Air Force seems to have operated the plane in some version or another from its entry in US service until 1996 (when Bolivia retired its ex-Venezuelan Air Force F-86Fs).  You might have to go anachronistic or something else clever.
Good Luck.

Does anybody have a closeup picture of the FJ-3's wing fold?  I've been looking for one but been unable to find one.

Like these?

Thanks, they'll do nicely.  I assume that the piece of timber isn't normal equipment though?  ;)

I may have mentioned it before, but in the '60s there was a plan for a war emergency fighter based on stored F-86 airframes, with wing-mounted J85s and the fuselage given over to fuel. There was a similar proposal for the F-84F.

Mmm, 1960s - "Dr. Strangelove", "Failsafe", Cuban Missile Crisis, exactly what sort of war were they contemplating?  Or was this intended for the Mad Max airforce post-apocalypse?  Seems to have been a bit of a disconnect there between planning and reality - not that isn't all that unusual...   ;D
