Historical Note:


Preorder Expected Arrival - SEP 2024

Designed as a high-performance evolution of the F-86 Sabre, the F-100 Super Sabre was first flown on May 25, 1953. This swept-wing aircraft was the first in the "Century Series" and the first operational USAF aircraft capable of supersonic speed in level flight. It was adapted for use as a fighter-bomber and was the Air Force's primary close-support aircraft through much of the Vietnam War. Despite its promise, the F-100 proved to be a dangerous aircraft, by the end of its USAF service in 1972, a total of 889 F-100s had been lost in accidents, claiming the lives of 324 pilots.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-100 Super Sabre is constructed almost entirely from diecast metal, with only the smallest amount of plastic used. The fuselage is almost seamless, with a hinged articulating canopy that opens for viewing of the cockpit interior. The engine intake has near-razor sharp edges with an unusually long pitot tube, and the surface surrounding the engine is correctly unpainted. The wing has crisp panel lines, hand-painted navigation lights and a complete set of ordnance including rocket, bombs and fuel tanks. Variants include the A, C and D; the D features a larger wing, aerodynamic fences on the wings and two types of refueling probes.
