Good Day folks
the project above was started long ago (today I'm currently doing almost nothing due to missing time) and wanted to share some pics with you.
The idea behind this, is to convert the century F-86F 1:18 into a proper F-86E(M) that was flown by the HAF in the 50es and 60es..
These Mk 2 Sabres were build from Canadair and were upgarded with the 6-3 hard wing but retained the V-shaped wind screen and equiped 3 Sqs (341, 342 and 343) plus the aerobatic team "Hellenic Flame"
The ...toy is also available from adrmiral toys as a F-86E that has some better parts as the century toy but the century toy is far better.
the admiral toys has a better cockpit and better main landing gear but is not acurate at the air intake region. The century toy has otherwise many more goodies such an air intake AB tube, accurate airbrakes, gun bays very nice sliding canopy
So first work was to take everything apart
