North American F-86F Sabre and MiG 15

F-86F Sabre:
Airfix 1/72 kit.
The build.
Markings are “The Huff”, flown by Lt. Jim Thompson, 39th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, K-13 (Suwon AB), South Korea, June 1953.

MiG 15:
Airfix 1/72 kit.
The build.
Markings are Russian Air Force, 1950s.

Both of these builds have issues, as detailed here and here. I am far from being a confident aircraft builder but the problems I have had in the past with canopies and hiding join lines are slowly getting better! I think that the MiG came out the best, probably because I did it second and avoided some pitfalls from the Sabre jet build. Still, they don’t look too bad and I can only get better at aircraft by practice.
