Completed Sabre

I am quite happy with the finish of this kit. In the end I left off several of the decals that I considered superfluous; the ones I did use went on reasonably well, and in fact I had more success with these than I have had with other decals at least half their age.

The last thing to do is make a small hole in the bottom so that it can be mounted on a stand, and I also need to apply some more black paint to the wheels. I'm going to make a concerted effort to get some of this decal stuff Geordie has been telling me about in the not too distant future. I had planned to start the Japanese aircraft tonight, but with the Inchon landings about 24 hours from kick-off I thought I better attend to some minor detailing on that first.


  1. Hey buddy, you hav put the wing transfers on the fuselage, hence the canted star on the body.

    Drop in tomorrow after work and I will give you a replacement set.

  2. Thanks Paul, hadn't noticed it until you mentioned, never drink and model!

  3. Oh I don't know, a bit of beer and glue and paint flumes make for a trippy nights construction, LOL

  4. It looks like the fuselage star is the right one - it's just upside down!
