On June 1, 1962 RAAF 79 Squadron arrived at Ubon Royal Thai Air Force Base. The squadron was there to defend against what was thought to be a pending attack through Laos. Two CAC Mk. 32 Sabres were always kept on high alert and armed with 30 mm cannons and Side-Winder Missiles. The aircraft were to be ready seven days a week during daylight hours and only used for self-defense. The expected attack never took place but 79 Squadron remained in Thailand until August 1968 when the unit was disbanded.

The Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) Sabre (CA-26) first flew on August 3, 1953. The production aircraft were designated the CA-27 Sabre with first deliveries to the Royal Australian Air Force beginning in 1954 powered by an Avon 20 engine and these were designated Sabre Mk 30. In 1957 these aircraft had their wing slats removed and became Sabre Mk. 31. The last 69 aircraft to be produced had the new Avon 26 engine and were designated Mk. 32. In the mid 1960s the Mirage III began to replace the Sabres.

Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
