First Look

Leading Edge has released set 48-10 which should come as a welcome relief to those of you allergic to bare metal Sabres. These depict the RCAF Sabres that operated out of Marville, France between 1955-1963. These Sabres wore the standard RAF Grey/Green upper camouflage scheme, and featured PRU Blue undersides.

Sabre Mk.6 1st Wing, RCAF

Markings are provided for any of the three squadrons of 1 Wing (410 Sqn, 439 Sqn and 441 Sqn).

In addition, a second sheet is included in this packet for an impressive array of maintenance stenciling, warning stripes, etc. If you have been keeping your 1/32 Hasegawa Sabre, your 1/48 Hasegawa/Academy/Monogram Sabres or any of your 1/72 Sabres on the shelf because of bare metal phobia, now is the time to dust them off. These will build into some colorful aircraft!

My sincere thanks to Leading Edge Decals for this review sample!
