Alclad for Metal sections over Gloss Black Tamiya Decanted. Painted Yellow and Black ID Bands and nose. Older Microscale Decals used.CMK Interior was beautiful .Sorry I couldn't photo well.

Airfix Kit was highly rated but my opinion is Hobbycraft and Fujimi are better F-86 kits. Airfix was missing some basics,Upper inlet,Upper fuselage panel, Side small Vents, Under-nose lights, nose radar scribing. Most of these were added but not all. Some small issues on the wings ,so 3ft is a good viewing distance.

There is no dark area in front of gun panel, just a photo lighting issue.

Nicely done natural metal finish, Bill.  Also very nice job on the painted markings.  Until I read your comments with the 1st photo, I would have sworn the yellow/black markings were decals.
