Model Description

Hobbymaster 1/72nd scale HA4307 North American F-86F Sabre 52-4513 , Major James Jabara 334th FS, Kimpo AB, July 1953. Buy online from Flying Tigers.

The North American F-86 Sabre was manufactured from 1949 – 1956 and was America’s first swept-wing fighter. As well as being built in the U.S. variants were built in Canada and Australia arrived to take on the other swept-wing aircraft of the conflict, the MiG-15 Fagot. The Americans claim they shot down 792 MiGs while only losing 78 Sabres, a 10:1 victory ratio which is greatly disputed.

During WWII P-51 pilot James “Jabby” Jabara scored 21.5 victories, it was during the Korean War flying F-86s that he excelled. On December 13,1950 Jabara arrived in South Korea with the 334th FIS / 4th FIW and by April 22, 1951 had 4 MiG-15 victories. On July 15, 1953 James Jabara downed his 15th MiG-15 and became a triple ace after two tours of duty and flying 163 combat missions. He was the second highest scoring U.S. Korean War pilot after Captain Joseph McConnell with 16 MiG-15 victories.
