Frickin' heck.  Yet another F.  Why no E or A for Pete's sake?

 

Look at the image they are are using. Likely was their easiest reference source.

Can't leverage the tooling for any other variants as it's basically a new aircraft and zero combat service, relatively small numbers built, only served with the USAF.

The F had 5 times as many airframes produced and served with many operators.

2500+ F's, 456 E's. E's also only served with the USAF, RCAF, Greek, Turkish and Yugoslav Air Force in any numbers (the RAF also had 3 and the Hondurans ended up with 10 ex-Yugoslav, ex-RCAF Sabre 2's, which were Canadair-built E's), F's served with pretty much everybody that flew non-Canadair or CAC built Sabres, and an F kit is a good starting point to produce a Canadair Sabre 5 or Sabre 6, the other two widely used variants. Same goes for the A, except even worse as only one A served outside the USAF.

Note several supposed E operators actually operated Sabre 4's, as MAP-funded ex-RAF Sabre 4's were designated F-86E(M)'s by NAA and the USAF, but were really a separate model from a regular E.

Forgot the Greeks and Turks got Sabre 2's from the RCAF.

Actually the Sabre Mk.4 *was* an F-86E.  Canadair built a number for the USAF on the same assembly line that they were building Mk.4s for the RAF.

 

Also, an updated E is essentially externally identical to an F.

No, that was the Sabre 2, not the Sabre 4.

Of Sabre 2 production, 60 went to the USAF as F-86E-6's, 3 to the RAF, 278 to the RCAF

Sabre 4 construction started after Sabre 2 construction ended and the last Sabre 2's built were the 60 aircraft batch for the USAF. All Sabre 4 construction went to the RAF (428) or RCAF (10).

The confusion mostly stems from the fact that the US funded Sabre 4 construction, and they went to the US after the RAF replaced them in 1956, and were passed on to Yugoslavia and Italy for the most part. These were designated F-86E(M)'s. They were close to an E, but not identical, although most changes were in the cockpit so you could potentially model one from an E.

The Sabre 3 was a testbed for the Orenda Sabre, which would become the Sabre 5.

Oh Great Buddha heard me, heard me: why not a new tool 1/48 A-10A/C????????? Yeah, I know, only one operator, produced in small numbers, no glamour nor air to air kills and other Tom-Cruise-like shoot but its still cool, saved a lot of grunts their asses and still strike FEAR to anyone unfortunate enough to stand in their way.

 

Just saying...

You'll see a new tool A-10A/C long before a Sabre Hog. While the A-10 has limited schemes and small numbers, it's seen a lot of combat and is reasonably iconic. The F-86H saw no combat and has all the downsides of having been a 1 operator aircraft produced in small numbers and very limited schemes, and is overshadowed by far better known variants of the same aircraft.

ALL Canadair built Sabres(MK2,4,5 &6)  were actually F-86Es; just some were more like  'E's than others.    The Sabre 2 and Sabre 4 were identical except for the flat windscreen on the '4'.   here is a data plate from a Sabre 6
