F-86 Mike's Bird Model


This is a 1/72 scale model that I made of a F-86F-30 "Mike's Bird" flown by Capt. Charles McSwain, Suwon (K-13), South Korea, 1953.

It has a lot of work done on it, but I'll keep it short, in essence a year full of hard work to get it finished :)

It is fully re-scribed (the entire aircraft's panel lines have been sanded and re-applied) and all the yellow/black Identification bands and markings were airbrushed along with the checker tail.

I've put it on a base which displays a 1950s map of Korea.

Since it is the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War Armistice this year, I wanted to complete it and add it to my collection in honor of the 60th.

Thank you for looking in :)
