Canadair Sabre Mk 5

Recommended Posts

hello guys!
Here comes my next project, an old Sabre from Monogram from the 80!  The kit has still raised panel lines however it looks like a sabre,  it is of course not as good as the kits from Hase or Academy.

But I have still 2 kits in my stash  Germany ordered 225 new Cl13Mk6 from Canadair . A total of 75 RCAF Sabre 5s were transferred to the German Luftwaffe during 1957. Their engines were not so powerful like the Mk6 Sabres and were only for training with the Waffenschule (air force school).

The fit is not so bad  however it needs  some putty and sanding to become a nice model.

Hey, you are really busy! But I think building the Sabre out of box will not be so demanding like your detailed RF-4 you did before.

Anyway, an interesting and rare to see project of the early iconic fighter of the young modern GAF.

Yes Tobik,

no extras! only the Fods from the Revell (hase Kit) and a new pitot tube and a nose gear wheel from the Academy kit

decals are from 1991! , there I will take others.

Nice work so far, the area around the nose gear well looks like it took a lot of work.

the German mk5 had the original Canadian lacquer finish  with Prue Blue on the underside and dark green and dark sea gray.on top.

the glare shield and the walkways were sparayed with tamiya xf 1 and then all sealed with a coat of Alclad gloss Cote. Next step the Decals.

the inside from the airbrakes and the landing gear wells  were sprayed interieur green

Looking good!

 

Yes, Spitfire camouflage and PRU blue. When I built my Sabres <Build Log here> a couple years ago, I lightened the X8 PRU Blue, because I thought it was too dark for 1/72.

Some new pics from decaling:

35502582844_91e4498f61_c.jpg

 

for the decals i take a mix of  Airdoc and Revel decals . The orginal kit decals were too old for my taste (from 1981!)

They went on fine using softener.

  Almost finished it! Only missing the semi gloss clear coat (Alclad semi gloss).

Surely not the best F-86 model. But it looks like a Sabre!  More pics in the Display Case!
