1/48 Hasegawa F-86

Gallery Article by Rod Bettencourt "Viper316" on Jan 14 2015



Here is my quick build of Hasegawa's F-86. Mostly built out of the box. I used Print Scale decals, Aeromaster and the kits decals. Paints were Model Master and Alclad. I did not go too crazy on this build, just wanted something basic and fun without getting bogged down with AM products.

The yellow stripes on fuselage and wings gave me the most problem. If I had it to do over again I would have painted them on. There is no Photoshop involved, just straight pictures with camera set on auto.

Hope you enjoy the pics and thanks for looking..
