Interesting Jet Terry. My dad was a mechanic in the Air Force and worked on Sabre Jets. I never knew of the Sabre Dog until now.

Wow, very nice! The finish looks real. I tried doing an F-100 in a bare metal finish and it looked terrible! I'd LOVE to do some more planes, but bare metal finishes and masking windows are my downfall! Lol.

Thanks guys. These natural metal finishes are the hardest ones to do in airplane modeling! The metalizers are very delicate to work with. On the next one I'm going to try the Alclad Duraluminum...

Nice job on the natural finish Terry. I love these '50/'60's jets !
