Here's a question: why are they called "sugar scoops"? Seems an odd name to me.

 

Kev

 

Because the shape is typical of a sugar scoop.  313GF2RSSAL._SX355_.jpg

Found this image on Amazon, but won't be buying this particular one any time soon https://www.amazon.c...g/dp/B0007WZ29U

 

Some very useful info on the F-86K above, looking forward to seeing the model finished.

Thanks, Mike. I never even knew a sugar scoop was a thing.

It was, and very useful, back in the time sugar was bought in bulk, rather than in cubes or cardboard bricks ;)

$300.00 for a hand scoop? It must be made of titanium! I sure hope I never hear people griping about the cost of models again.

Those types of scoops were generic for all produce items before pre-bagging became the norm. Flower, coffee, sugar, beans, seeds, all were sold by the pound. What's interesting that off all the names that it could have gone by, Sugar was the name that stuck to it.

About sugar scoops (of the no-sparkle type) or the F-86 K ;) ?

I am getting fonder of the "Dog" (as it is a "K", should it be nicknamed a "Kog" ?), and enjoying this project. Like Peter said, keep it coming.

In case anybody else may be toying with the idea of doing a Kitty Hawk "Kilo"...

More painting & marking bloopers incoming:

 

Marking Option E - 3556th CCTS, Perrin AFB, 1960

No idea what's come over KH's R&D department on this one...

 

32o4NPs.jpg

 

 

Marking Options B, C and D - Barley Grey undersides on uncamouflaged a/c

Another case of "WTH?!"...

 

Not to be confused with the partially applied (lower fuselage only) protective rocket exhaust finish on later USAF/ANG F-86D and F-86L.

Marking Options B, D and uncamouflaged German AF a/c - anti glare shield variation on FIAT-built F-86K

Nothing serious, though...

 

TU4jHBj.jpg

 

 

Apart from the sixty NAA-built F-86K, the Royal Norwegian Air Force also received four FIAT-built aircraft featuring

the "FIAT-style" anti glare shield as well as the "Sugar Scoop" intakes.

 

FIAT:

55-4874, 55-4884, 55-4886, 55-4890
