Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

North American F-86F Sabre - #52-4584, “MiG Mad Marine”, Maj. John Glenn, Jr. (USMC), 25th FIS, USAF, Suwon (K-13) Air Base, Korea, 1953

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

USMC Major John H. Glenn Jr. had flown with VMF-311 but became an exchange pilot assigned to the USAF 25th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, 51st FIG at Suwon AB, Korea. He was equipped with an F-86F-30 #52-4548 with the names of his wife and two children painted on it. Glenn had complained of a lack of MiGs and one morning came out to find “MiG Mad Marine” added on his F-86. During the final two weeks of the war Glenn downed three MiG-15s.

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.
