WARNING:- Image heavy!!
Panel line washes done with oils:-








Nose lights are provided in the Kit as clear parts,but I replaced mine with some 4mm lenses from Little-Cars :-


Finished Photos:-











And to recap:-

Kit :- Kinetic 1/32 F86F-30 Kit No. 3201


Eduard Pre-painted/SA interior set

Little-Cars 4mm clear Light Lenses

Paint :-

Tamiya acrylics
Alclad Primer/Filler
Alclad Gloss Black Undercoat
Alclad various Aliminium shades
Tamiya X22 clear gloss varnish
Windsor & Newton oil paints

General fit pretty good,some detail soft in places,decals worked well with Microset/sol,but large yellow/black panels on wings and fuselage split while still on the backing sheet and took multiple hits with Microset to pull them down (in hindsight,I would recommend masking and painting these markings on)

All in all a happy build,took Me about 50 Hours,would recommend to all USAF/Sabre fans!

Thanks for looking!

Keep Sticking,

Cheers, Pete

Holy snappers! 50 hours and it is done and dusted. Very, very nice finish and love those LOUD Yankee markings....

Cheers, Vic

First proper go at BMF,it has been a learning curve,got a Mig 15 & Mig 19 somewere...........

Still struggling a bit with PE as well,ok with folding (Etch-Mate)and manouvering it about,just getting the right amount of adhesive on to look OK AND hold the part fast,I'll keep persevering though,it's a skill that's worth pursuing!

Thanks for Your kind words Vic!

Keep Sticking!
