The latest addition to this website is the F-86E Sabre. I decided to try my luck with a ANG bird, and choose Alaska ANG as my subject, as I found it quite unique, with the dayglo Orange tail section. This aircraft is from the 176th Wing, 144th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, and this is how the aircraft looked when it operated out of Elmendorf AFB in 1958.

Here´s a new 3d piece, depicting two F-86s flying at twilight over Korea during the early 50s. The one closest to the camera was flow by Lt. Col V. Garrison and the one banking in the distance was flow by Col. H. R. Thyng. The main purpose pf this piece was to depict the clean a sleek shape of the F-86, and to do a light study of the neutral metal surface reflecting the setting sun. Originally i wanted to add a flaming MIG to the piece, but with the kind advice of many of my sites visitors and the member of two F-86 groups, I decided to add a Wingman to the closest F-86, in order to retain the calmness, I think this piece projects. Still no title, but as usual: Can you help me finding a suiting title? Hope you like it !

After adding the Luftwaffe section i thought it would be appropriate to add some new stuff to it. This Sabre Mk. 6 simply oozes old school coolness, so I had to do a rendition of it. After completing the rendition i realized that I probably should have done JA-111 instead (the Black Devils personal mount), but for better or worse: Here´s a Sabre mk. 6 of 71 Jagdgeschwader "Richthofen". To be taken to the 71 JG gallery, click the image below: Sabre mk.6, 71 JG, 1961
The F-86 Sabre basemodel have been completed for a while, so it´s about time some of them get on this site. This first F-86 is a F-model from the 4th Fighter Intercept Wing, 335th Fighter Intercept Squadron as it appeared in the late years of the Korean war. This aircraft was flow but Col. Vermont Garrison, who was the commanding officer of the 335th. At the end of the war he had 10 air-to-air combat victories to his name, making him a double ace. Hope you like this renditions of one what IMHO is one of the best looking jets ever produced. F-86F Sabre, 4th Fighter Intercept Wing, 335th Fighter Intercept Squadron, 1952
