About the F-86F Sabre:

Following the Second World War, American engineers set to building aircraft using jet engines. Designed to combat the Soviet-built MiG-15, the F-86F Sabre employed the same “swept-back” wing design.  This enabled the crack World War II American fighter pilots to successfully dogfight over the skies of Korea in an area known as “MiG Alley”. The Sabre’s exceptional dogfighting abilities places it as one of the best fighter jets of the twentieth century.

Equipped with a powerful General Electric J47-27 engine, the Sabre had a top speed of 690 mph. The Sabre was also equipped with six 0.5 Colt-Browning machine guns and had several options for hardpoints, such as air-to-air missiles or nuclear warheads.

The model features this legendary aircraft as it looked during the Korean War. Included with the kit is a custom-printed American pilot minifigure, a sliding canopy, and retractable landing gear. Also included are stickers and printed elements to give the Sabre an authentic 1950’s look.

Specifications:

  • Engine: General Electric J47-GE-27 turbojet
  • Speed: 690 mph (1,110 km/h)
  • Range: 785 miles (1,263 km)
  • Armament: 6x 0.5 Colt-Browning machine guns, various hardpoints
