Hi, I hope that you'll like my project

The 1/48 kit is by Revell/Hasegawa, built just out the box.  I used only Aztec decals for this particular jet.

This Sabre served in Fuerza Aerea Argentina in 1960's/80's. Argentine Sabres were ex USAF model F block 30 but upgraded with the new wing typical for the block 40.
This very interesting Sabre ( for me one of the most impressive and aggressive camouflage schemes adopted by Sabres) was based in El Plumerillo in 1981. Argentine Sabres were also employed to patrol the border line with Chile during Falklands (Malvinas) war.
