This Sabre model is made to be displayed in the inflight configuration. It is mostly made of metal and very heavy/dense. It is certainly not a toy and will not survive been played with or a fall.

 

The box is labeled as Adult Collectible Model and Recommends 14 and older.

 

Although it is a small scale, the details are very impressive. From the photos one can see and appreciate the transparent cockpit windshield. There are very few gaps and/or joints in this model.

 

Since there is no option for a landing gear, a stand where the model can be attached for display is included and the model's info (type of airplane and scale).

 

The maker of the model, Model Power, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp.What really caught my attention, however, is the way the markings and coloring. Look at the photos and you will see very clear and crisp nose art and markings.

 

The box measures 6" x 6" x 3"

The North American F-86 Sabre, sometimes called the Sabrejet, is a transonic jet fighter aircraft. Produced by North American Aviation, the Sabre is best known as the United States' first swept wing fighter that could counter the similarly-winged Soviet MiG-15 in high-speed dogfights over the skies of the Korean War (1950–1953). Considered one of the best and most important fighter aircraft in that war, the F-86 is also rated highly in comparison with fighters of other eras.[3] Although it was developed in the late 1940s and was outdated by the end of the '50s, the Sabre proved versatile and adaptable, and continued as a front-line fighter in numerous air forces until the last active operational examples were retired by the Bolivian Air Force in 1994.
