Here are some images plus composites of Hasegawa's 1/48 scale North American F 86 Sabre. The Sabre was the most important fighter for the Americans during the Korean war. First flown in 1947 the Sabre incorporated features of the Messerschmitt ME 262 particularly the swept wings. The Sabre was also built in Canada as the Canadair Sabre and in Australia as the CAC Sabre. In my opinion you pretty much can't go wrong with a Hasegawa kit, they are always well detailed, go together well and have decals with good colour as well as nice and stretchy. Although Hasegawa kits in my opinion have always been a little over priced for what you get especially in this day and age. That's why I don't buy them to often.
