    Revell F/A-18E spine and other thoughts

    Thanks for posting...oh my... that cockpit is far away from the usual Revell quality found in other kits... hmmm...

    the color of the tail of the 3 HAF Sqs were red, yellow and green most interesting are the colors of the aerobatic team Hellenic Flame

    the cockpit was painted in medium grey (later paint sheme, in the 50es everything was black...) The seat of admiral toys is much better. Here there are some thing missing but could be add easily

    the cockpits in both toys are ok but need far more detailing: Instrument panel in the century toy: and admiral toys:

    the front canopies (late version) is somehow not the best ones on both kits but admiral toys has the best one. But the F-86E(M) had the early V-shape canopy and this must be made from scratch

    the landing gear legs of the century toy are too thin and the LG of the admiral toys is better

    next work was to make the leading edges of the all surfaces thinner, because there are too thick and use putty to cover some holes on the fusalage the airbrakes are not bad I drilled some holes there, but there's some work to be done to look right

    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
