Yes, it's the Huff. What can I say, I have a thing for dragons. Nice kit, I only added the True Details cockpit and a few small details behind the pilot's seat. The decals came with the kit were great... if only I weren't the world's worst decaler they would look great (why did I think that this time, THIS time, masking and painting wouldn't be necessary and the decals would lie down perfectly?). Comments and constructive criticism truly are appreciated.


















Thanks for looking,
Mike

And great photography too.

It is better to be the stomper rather than the stompee!

You did great work on this superbly done F-86. Awesome NMF and paint job, nicely painted pilot figure and very nice photography. I love it.

... Looks to me like you knocked it outta the park!
Beautiful looking Sabre!

On the seventh day while God rested, we overran his perimeter, stole the globe, and we've been running the whole show ever since.
