America's first swept-wing fighter, the F-86 Sabre - sometimes called the "Sabrejet" - was introduced into the U.S. Air Force fleet in 1949. It is perhaps most recognizable as the aircraft battling Soviet MiG-15s during the Korean War, though, despite its success during the campaign and its overall versatility and adaptability, it was largely obsolete by the late 1950s. It was, however, the most-produced Western jet fighter in history with nearly 10,000 planes manufactured and service extending in some international militaries until 1994. Made by Hobby Master, this 1/72 scale, die cast model is a replica of the "Mig Mad Marine," an F-86F Sabre flown by future astronaut and U.S. senator, Major John Glenn during the final year of the Korean War. In addition to its signature colorful artwork, it also features engraved panel lines, a sliding canopy, a removable pilot figure, a well-equipped cockpit, a detailed afterburning engine nozzle, optional-position landing gear, authentic markings, and a stylish presentation stand. Measures approximately 6¾" long with a 6¼" wingspan.
