A variant of the North American F-86 Sabre, the Canadair Sabre was produced from 1952 to 1958, serving primarily in the Royal Canadian Air Force. On May 18, 1953, Jacqueline Cochran set the women's speed record with the Canadair Sabre, traveling 652mph over 100km becoming the first female to break the sound barrier. The Mk. 6 was the final mass-production variant, accounting for 655 of the 1,815 Sabres manufactured. It was ultimately replaced in the RCAF by the CF-104 in 1962.
This 1/72 scale, Hobby Master, die cast model features realistic panel lines, an opening canopy, a removable pilot figure, a well-equipped cockpit with panel instrumentation, a detailed turbojet engine, optional-position landing gear, authentic markings from the RCAF in the 1950s, and a stylish presentation stand.
