Default F-86F Themes? Suggestions?

Hello,

I'm looking for a F-86F Theme. It needs to be on a bird without leading edge slats and the aluminum cannot be polished. Any ideas would be great. Looking for themes that are not too elaborate as I want to show the metal finish on my bird but it's not polished.

Thanks,
Andy


I like this one but its a F-86A

The BVM site has some views of colour schemes for their F-86 ARF's.

http://www.bvmjets.com/Pages/f-86sabre.htm

I chased up quite a few schemes for Sabres but they covered different versions of the Sabre, not particularly one single variant.

I don't intend to fly mine in competition, I just chose what I thought was the prettiest colour scheme.

I have tried to post some pics but the server here is crap. - John.

Andy,

ABC Wild World of Sports !!! Tom Perry did one of these. BVM kit D/Fan... Looked pretty cool. Used to be on BVM website... Give Tom a shout. He might have some pic's of it.

John Glenn flew an F-86F in the famous MiG Mad Marine markings. In light of his fame, there are probably a fair number of photos of it on the web and maybe Promark or Tailormade Decals has already got the dry transfers.

Regards,

Jim

That particular F-86 has an interesting story http://sabre-pilots.org/classics/v121hall.htm and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTRzd6FmLhs I first saw it when Ben was restoring it in the early 70s hidden away in a hanger in Everett Washington. It is made up from a number of different Sabres including the wings. That’s why it does not have the working wing slats that should be on that model.

Andy,
Talk to Scott and Betsy Harris when you get a chance. They probably know every scheme there is and can steer you toward some info. It can be a mine field since often modelers use A or E model schemes on F models. All depends on how accurate you need to make it.

For the star and bar. Do not use anyone's versions except Pro-Mark or Tailor-Made. The rest will garantee to get them wrong.

I like the boxing crow theme but from the pics that I have seen its an F model with leading edge slats. Thanks for the others. I may consider the Huff one as it's pretty popular and there is plenty of pics of that one.

Yep, I agree Pro-Mark or Tailor-Made is the only way to go. The theme I am working on has to be accurate. It's for my JWM bird.

If I could find a sufficient set of views of a foreign them I would be interested. The problem is that if there are only a few views I won't be able to properly document it.

Here's a scheme you may like. The painted sections would be the hardest sections to cover in metal so this scheme would save you some frustration (wouldn't have to apply metal on the nose and tail)and the airframe is still mostly natural metal. Just something to consider.

I do like that but the metal has already been applied on the whole jet.
