Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

North American F-86F Sabre – 51-2897, “The Huff”, Lt. James Thompson, 39th FIS, 51st FIW, USAF, Suwon Air Base, South Korea, June 1953

1:72 Scale.  Length: 6".  Wingspan: 6”

F-86F-1NA Sabre 51-2897 was assigned to Lt. James Thompson of the 39th FIS, 51st FIW and named "The Huff", after he shot down a MiG-15 with a dragon painted on it. Thinking along the lines of a “kill marking”, Lt. Thompson asked to have a dragon painted on the aircraft. The result was a 10 foot dragon that the C/O ordered removed but the story of a dragon MiG-15 being shot down saved the scheme.

The F-86 Sabre was a transonic jet fighter aircraft. First flown in 1947, the F-86 entered service with the US Air Force in 1949. The Sabre is best known for its role in the Korean War, where it was pitted against the Soviet built MiG-15. In addition to its use in Korea, the F-86 Sabre also served in various stateside and overseas roles throughout the early part of the Cold War. It was by far the most-produced Western jet fighter with a total production, of all variants, of 9,860.
