Historical Note:

FALCON MODELS SERIES

Historical Note:   In 1948, intelligence warning prompted the U.S. Air Force to hurriedly develop an all-weather interceptor. Starting with the basic airframe of its F-86A Sabre, North American incorporated two unprecedented concepts into the F-86D (initially designated the F-95): a highly sophisticated electronic system replaced the second crewmember carried by other interceptors and it became the first production single-seat fighter in which air-to-air missiles replaced the classic gun armament.

Now, the legendary and innovative F-86D Sabre Dog can take its rightful place in any Cold War die cast airplane collection! This first-ever, 1/72 scale, die cast model of an F-86D is a wonderful re-creation of the original, right down to the distinctive profile and nose radome.

  1. Very Good Model of Rare ROCAF Sabre Dog 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2018

    Although not up to Hobby Master standards, Falcon continues to produce very good models of rare aircraft, in this case an F-86D of the ROCAF (Republic of China Air Force in Taiwan). My research suggests that only one squadron of 18 a/c was in use from o/a 1960-1966.

    The fuselage details on my example are not as clear as those on the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force "sister ship" I have from Falcon; this may reflect older tooling. However, the finish, details, unusual Sidewinder missile load and markings are all excellent and the bird itself has that hefty metal feel many of us collectors appreciate.

    Hyper-detailers will note that the Sidewinder pylons are mounted wider than on actual F-86Ds (according to photos). Also, the landing gear doors are not painted the air defense gray of the rest of the aircraft. (They are silver.) And, if your magnifying lenses are good enough, the serial number decal under the cockpit may not reflect the actual number of one of the F-86Ds transferred to Taiwan. These are minor flaws, however.

    If are looking for an unusual Sabre Dog to add to your collection, this would be a good selection.
