The F-86 Sabre was one of the most influential Cold War fighters in the world, seeing extensive service with the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. It was introduced in 1949 and was immediately recognized as a successful, adaptable aircraft-more than 7,800 units were quickly ordered. It proved a worthy opponent in dogfights against its Soviet counterpart, the MiG-15, and — despite its technology becoming somewhat obsolete by the late 1960s — various national militaries kept the Sabre in service until its official retirement in 1994. The "F" variant was one of the more common versions, sporting an upgraded engine, a larger wing design, and better agility.
This 1/72 scale, die cast, Hobby Master model — sporting authentic markings from the Pakistani Air Force in 1965— features realistic panel lines, a glazed canopy that opens, a removable pilot figure, a well-equipped cockpit with detailed instrumentation, optional-position landing gear, and a stylish presentation stand. Measures approximately 6¼" long with a 6¼" wingspan.
