hello everyone, this will be my second 1/32 planes to be build so far, in the market there are only 2 sabres in 1/32 scale, one by Hasegawa and the other by Italeri, between the two Italeri is the best so far in detail, but it have lots of problems with the molded pieces and some fitting issues, will see how it turns out.

 

For this one i will use some AM stuff, all resin pieces, the cockpit, wheel wells,airbrakes, and metal pitot tube.

 

I have found some injection problems in some of the big pieces, for example in the aft part of the fuselage some panel lines and rivets are almost invisible due to poor injection pressure into the mold, it will be shown in pictures later one, and some distortion on the wing upper surface due to the same problem before.

 

So far i just did some cockpit work, the sabre cockpit is really plain in details, not much knobs on the side panel, and the panels and knobs are all in black color, so i used my imagination and to give some contrast and life to the side panels i used some data decals around some knobs so it wont look plain and toyish in apperance

about the instrument panel, it is the old fashion way, a front pohotoetch cover (to flat in detail) and an acetate face in the back for instrument dials (at least this will give the look of glass cover in the instruments, not the best panel ever made but in the model it look quite in scale and real

and here you can see the shine on the instruments looking like real glass

Actually, Kinetic also did a 1:32 sabre, though it and the Italeri kit may be one and the same, I'm not real sure.

The Italeri Sabre does not appear to be in our database yet, any chance you have a photo of the Box top?

the italeri is an old kit, already out of the market, the one you will find is the Kinetic one, that is the italeri mould

OK, thanks for the clarification. I thought possibly they were the same, but didn't know for sure. Web sources state the Italeri kit being a re-box of the Kinetic kit, rather than the other way around.

Great start Jorge!

That was my understanding too.

I've already added two Italeri F-86 kits (2503 and 2501), to the database; no pictures though, as I didn't feel like snatching them from the WWW.

 

And yes, pit is shaping up nicely. I did the same bird in 1:72 scale years ago (Fujimi kit), and sold it almost immediately to a local collector.

not much for an update, time during the day is really short, been mothersitting my mom in the clinic for the last week, but everything looks like she is getting well, about this kit, even that is better than the hasegawa sabre is not the best kit in the block, after building few kits from tamiya, other the fitting and details really sucks in any other kit brand, but this will be a real challenge and even more if the finish will be with alclad paint.

 

on the fuselage some rivet lines fade because the injection process lacks from pressure in the plastic injection, here is a sample

 

IMG_5738_zps49292f1c.jpg

 

the worst part is on the wings, a lot of irregularities  on the surface

 

IMG_5748_zps952fb409.jpg

 

Ok , leaving behind the problen on the kit, the cockpit is atrting to look like a cockpit, bot resin side panels in place and the photoetch panel also in place

also the front resin gear well is in place

The wings look like they have been oil-canned, maybe deliberately by the model company?

Lee, i thought of that too, but you dont get that effect on the center of the wing where the fuel tank is, maybe on the fuselage skin or the flaps or ailerons

Super work on the front offcie and IP - sure is looking mighty good. Right with you about the molding problems on the Sabre's skin ... nasty for sure.

Keep 'em coming
