1/48 Revell F-86D Dog Sabre

--------------------

 

The F-86D is famous for breaking the speed record in the early 1950s and for having an all-rocket weapons load consisting of the 'Mighty Mouse' rockets. I came across this kit in Walmart for $10.This kit is built completely OOB.  The model has been painted using water based acrylic paints.  I liked the detail of this kit and esp. the huge number of teeny-weeny decals which took me quite some time to apply. Overall I think this is a very good kit and certainly worth the extra time for putting in the highly detailed decals, the only negative point being that the fit of the fuselage halves leaves something to be desired.
