Take a look at the GJC F86s. One sport scale and the other super scale. I have the sport scale and it flies great. A lot of jet for the price.

Thanks for the reply. I am moving to smaller planes overall. I am enjoying the simplified logistics and convenience.

Is that yours Tom? That's exactly the color scheme I want. I had a 1/5 skymaster in the sky blazer scheme, got through about half the build then sold it locally to my friend. I also have my eye on the t45 from global jet club.

My friend has the BVM F-86 1/7. Its not worth the money they are asking for it now. Everything is stickers and not super detailed. I was not to impressed with the model. He still has not flown the jet. He waited a year to get it and believe the total was $5000 at the time he placed the order back in April of 22.

I've seen the full scale version of that when I was stationed in Yokota AFB (Tokyo). Right outside of 8th AF HQ.

Default Bvm F86

Hi and greets from Germany. I've have this little sweet. Overall I can say its a Superbee Modell. Outside painting with all decals, no stickers. Electric Retracts, semi scale Cockpit. I've mounted a Kingtech K70 in it. Here are some pics from the Beauty 😎✌️ Chris

Thanks for the pictures Chris. Are the decals clear coated?

Yep. Flys nicely on a Cheeta 160. Nice jet for not a lot of money. If you want more scale they also have one super scale that looks real nice. I'm really happy with mine. The T45s fly well also. Our club has both the foam and composite ones, both look nice.

My biggest issue with the other F-86s (Global and Pilot version) they don't have ducting through the fuse, based on how the BVM F-86 fly's vs the other 2 IMO there is a difference on how they fly.

Scale wise I think the BVM F-86 is has best as it gets, it flies on rails, easy predicable landings and don't have to worry about getting parts when you need it.

Here are some detail pics from the ducting in the fuse.

Look at the Global Jet Club and Aerojet FB groups. Lots of pictures.
