F-86 to RF-86 Conversion


Recommended Posts

In the June 2018 Fine Scale Modeler, Chuck Davis converted an Academy 1/72nd scale F-86E into an RF-86F.  Somewhere down the road on my build list is to convert an Eduard (Hasagawa) 1/48th scale F-86F to an recon version.  Does anybody know of a conversion kit or plans to do it without spending years in the process?

Hasagawa actually released this kit, the RF-86 "Haymaker", so IF you can find it (sorta rare edition, I guess), it comes with all you need! Here's a link to an article I found on building it:

Good luck!

Thanks for the info, Gil.  I also have spent a lot of time at the museum in Dayton & have plenty of photos of the RF-86.  I found the kit on ebay from a seller in Japan but, he wants $98.00 for it.  Guess I'll keep it on the back burner for awhile.
