The latest largescale kit from Kitty Hawk is the all-weather rocket-armed F-86D Sabre Dog - the first time this important '50s aircraft has been available in this scale as a mainstream kit.

Rowan,
Simply another one of your excellent and well detailed reviews. It sure looks like Kitty Hawk has a winner with this offering. I only which they would scale it down to 1/48 scale.

Glad to see you "selling out" to the Dark Side of big planes, Rowan.

Hi Bill

Yeah - I've only been building 1:32 kits since the 1960s, so I'm still new to the genre.

Space was always the issue that made me build smaller subjects when I lived in small flats in London, but it never stopped me buying kits way bigger than I could fit on the workbench, let alone hope to ever display. Now I've got more time and space down here on the Island, I can delve into the Dark Side a bit more. I might even dig out my old Revell Ju 88s one day...

All the best

Seems to be a beautiful kit.

Looks great and I love all the decal options. Great to see some of those early cold war colorfull schemes.

Thanks for the review, Rowan.
