Well i try to overcome with my favourite hobby with new subject, this time a jet one from the cold era, the very good revell 1/48th scale F-86D. First of all ihave to thank Duncan, for his valueable help, explaning details, providing info and clarifiying things regarding this beautiful aircraft and my build specifically.

  11. Dont know if it is the right place to share but i saw some guys are interested in.
