Hasegawa 1/72 scale conversion
F-86D Sabre Dog

by Asao Shirai


North American F-86D Sabre Dog

Hasegawa's 1/72 scale F-86D Sabre Dog is available online from Squadron.com




Here is my Hasegawa 1/72 scale North American F-86D Sabre Dog in service with the JASDF. The kit has been remodeled.

I used the aluminum from an empty beer can for the gear door and slats.

Hasegawa's Sabre Dog is an old but beautiful kit. It is possible to remodel it without a great deal of trouble.



This aircraft was stationed at Nagoya JASDF base in Japan, and I liked mark of "Shati Dolphin Fish", as painted on the fin.

Most of the markings were cut from paper masks and sprayed.
