Recommended Posts

now i am curious..really corious.. and atleast you gave me a clue. so i will start checking with the canadabuildt sabres. and also speak with a couple that i know that flew the canadian sabre <_< perhaps they know something as this little item has puzzeled me since you posted it :lol:

let me know if you find out something..and i will do the same ( and no wonder i couldent find that one any of the sabres i have searched as they are all americanbuildt ) :P

 

but the canadian build sabres did have a lot of cool little small improvments from the US buildt ( and also more powerful engines .. so lets see what we can come up with :)

I've been intending to post to this thread for quite some time; can't believe it's taken me this long. The attached image speaks for itself I suppose; it has a place of honor in my den. I've been a fan of the F-86 for as long as I can remember. When the time comes to trick out my Kinetic kit, I'll rely on this thread heavily. :)

WOW, that's an awesome painting!! The 86 is my ALL TIME favorite jet. Always has been. That reminds me....I need to restart mine.........Harv :)

Thanks Harv; this is a signed original. Signatures include Gabe Gabreski, and four other aces. Purchased from Historic Aviation about ten years ago; I love it too. :coolio:

Much to my surprise, it appears to still be available. Pretty much the same price too. Just went and had another look at mine; one of the signatures (in pencil). is by the artist himself, so there are actually only the four pilot signatures (including Gabreski), and all four were Sabre aces.
