Hello fellows modelers!

here is the last model to have joined my showcase, a Canadian MK 6 Sabre.

The model is from Revell Germany, it's a "reboxing"of the Hasegawa F-86 F-40 but with the necessary parts for the modification of the wing (the German manufacturer has added new resin wings tips).

I increased the level of detail by adding an Eduard photoetched board and a CMK resin ammunition box.

This one was, in fact, frequently open on the left. The pilots used, indeed, his hatch as step-foot!

The decoration come from an Leading Edge Models decals sheet dedicated to Canadian Sabre in Europe. I chose to represent a plane from 439 Sqn based at Marville in 1956.

I hope you will like my Sabre.
