North American F-86F Sabre
Hasegawa's 1/48 scale F-86F Sabre is available online from
This is my first HyperScale submission and my first attempt with Bare
The entire model was covere with Bare Metal Foil (chrome). After
about 10 sheets of foil I began to get the hang of it. After some
practice it went on well, applying small pieces overlapping panel lines
and then trimming using a razor.
When the entire model was covered I applied car wax and then the
decals, then another coat of wax. Buffing the wax really brought out the
shine of the foil.
Applying foil was a fun experience that I plan to do more often.
This being only my third model ever constructed, I now have model
building fever and I am debating my next project with Bare Metal Foil -
B-58, P-51, F-104?
