Jimmy Jabara F-86

Recommended Posts

Jimmy Jabara was a leading ace fighter pilot in the Korean War. He also grew up in Wichita, Kansas; same as me. I got a Hasegawa kit and specific decals from Warbird Decals and came up with this:

The kit decals are VERY detailed, down to all the exterior markings. It took 2 days to apply all of them.

As can be seen compared to a F-51, the F-86 wasn't that much bigger.  Simpler days.

Very nicely done, and your Sabre and Mustang look great together. B)

Very well done.  Two of my favorite USAAF/USAF fighters.
