Hobby Craft/Academy Sabre


The Academy/Hobbycraft 1/72 Sabre 5 done as the sole Canadair Sabre 3 used by Jackie Cochran to set a woman's speed record in 1953. Then her nemesis Jacqueline Auriol broke that record in both a Mystère and a Mirage and Jackie had to go trump her again in a TF-104. The model was built for a display at the Museum of Flight on women in aviation. 


And when I say, Academy/Hobbycraft it really was a combo. The HC kit was later slightly updated by Academy and I used the Academy fuselage and HC wings. The finish was Tamiya LP-11...awesome stuff...and the dayglo was a cheat with decals.



On display in the case with the Mirage used to represent Jacqueline Auriol's record breaker.  Note the tiny Jackie.

Canadian Tempest Restoration

Cool video about the Tempest being rebuilt in Kelowna. I cannot wait to see this in the air!


And in case you missed part one:


Modeler's Note: Looks like we are getting new tool 1/72 Tempest IIs from KP and Edward/Special Hobby.  I think I'll wait for the Eduard/Special Hobby collaboration.  And don't believe what Knights says, the Matchbox kit ain't that bad.

Tim Nelson's tanks

An inspirational article from Tim Nelson on Model Paint Solutions about his 1/72ish World War One tanks. #Dioramasalwaysbetterwithaskeleton

P.S.:  Inspirational, as in, his build inspired me to buy the Airfix Vintage Classics reissue of the WW1 Male Tank!
