Beginnings: North American F-86 E-10 Sabre | 1:72 Academy

This is one of my first kits finished after come back to the hobby in 2005: Academy 1/72 F-86 E-10 Sabre, S/N 51 2834, cpt Clifford D. Jolley, 335 FS / 4th FW, Korea 1952.

No add-ons, just glued together and painted silver from the rattle can, with details simply brush painted. Decals went on very well, which was a kind of surprise given usually poor quality of Academy’s decals. Slight weathering, almost invisible.

Must say, after all those years, that I  still like this kit and I’m pleased with the result.

And what a beautiful plane this was.
