Hey LSP hivemind.

 

 

 

Got a question for you guys.  I'm rather interested in building an F-86L for an upcoming contest, since the theme is going to be California history. The Cal ANG used the F-86L, but there isn't a straight kit of that on the market in 1/32.

 

 

So, how do you go about converting to an L?   Do you have to cross-kit the Kittyhawk kits? Or is it possible to build it completely out of one of the boxes?

 

 

 

Thanks for the help guys

Hey Matt ,

you'll need the wings from an F-86F-40. I don't know

the difference between the different kits (I'm sure others

will ) but this lays out what you'll need pretty well : http://www.joebaughe...ers/p86_18.html

Use the wings from the KittyHawk F-86K boxing, the F-86D boxing for every thing else.

The leftovers could be combined to make an early F-86K, as the first batches were delivered with the D wing.
