    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    During the late 1940s, North American Aviation developed what would become the best dogfighter of the day with the F-86 Sabre. Initially the XP-86 had straight wings which would have doomed the design, but North American was provided captured Messerschmitt Me 262 data which gave the engineering team a jump-start on successful swept-wing technology. A highly modified F-86 design would serve aboard aircraft carriers as the FJ Fury and would evolve into the first operational supersonic fighter as the F-100.

    As the F-86 was evolving, North American was tasked with another derivative which would house an early intercept radar in the nose and replace the .50 caliber guns with a tray of Mighty Mouse rockets. The resulting YF-95 was an enlarged F-86 airframe that would also introduce an augmented thrust J47 engine to compensate for the heavier aircraft. Redesignated as F-86D in production, the Dog Sabre would become the first single-seat interceptor with afterburner. Over 2,500 F-86D/K/Ls were produced and served not only in the U.S. Air Force, but also in Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Honduras, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Turkey, Thailand, Venezuela, and Yugoslavia.

    Kitty Hawk has released another subject that has never been produced in styrene in 1/32 scale - the F-86D Sabre Dog. The kit is molded in light gray styrene and presented on seven parts trees plus one tree of clear parts and one small fret of photo-etched details.
