:100 Scale Diecast Metal - Canadair Sabre F4 (F-86) Royal Air Force - Length: 4.25" Wingspan: 4.5”
This Canadair Sabre F4 model has some very small and fragile parts for the landing gear that needs to be assembled/put in place. A small amount of glue might be needed to secure the pieces. One could chose to not assembled the landing gear and model the plane in the inflight position, but be advised that the front wheel well covers are molded in the opened position.
A plastic display stand is included with the model.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
The maker of this model did a good job with this model, specifically the color scheme and the markings are very crisp and clear. The panel lines and hatches are very nicely done (engraved).
The packaging of these models is very nice, it comes in a rectangular styrofoam pack. The pack in turn, goes inside a full color cardboard sleeve.
The pack measures 8 inches by 8 inches by 3 inches.
