Lovely finish and decals. It looks properly used and not showroom polish.

There's one minor nitpick though; the Sabre's air brakes didn't stick straight out like doors, they drooped and swiveled slightly so the bottom edge was tilted forward. There's a cut line on the bottom support strut which you're supposed to trim short to get them to sit properly. It's really easy to miss the bit in the instructions which tells you do trim it off. It ought to be easy to pop them off and quickly snip off the offending strut :)

From the side (This is a Canadiair Sabre 6, but the mechanism was unchanged in the -D (Pictures from a thread on Hyperscale):

Give it a go. Make sure you thoroughly prime before Alcald though. Guess who learnt the hard way.

You get that scheme in the kit, so I suspect they may be although there was a Cutting Edge aftermarket sheet made for it. Way back when it first came out there was talk about the red being the wrong shade, but who cares? It looks fantastic.

Here's the box:

That is very nice, not the kit decals though I am guessing?

As Jessie says the build features the kit decals. You get that scheme plus a shark mouth option and extensive stencils.. The kit decals are fine to work with. HTH
