NATO F-86D/K Sabre Dog

NATO F-86D/K Sabre Dog Book Review

By David L. Veres

Date of Review November 2018 Title NATO F-86D/K Sabre Dog
Author Robbie M. Robinson Publisher Editions Minimonde 76
Published 2018 ISBN 978-2-9541818-5-1
Format 120 pages, softbound MSRP (Euro) 23.50€


Let's cut to the chase: every fan of Cold War Sabres needs Editions Minimonde76's succinct, spectacular North American Aircraft NATO F-86D/K Sabre Dog.

Four chapters over 120 pithy pages span the colorful compendium:

  • Development & Production
  • United States Air Force in Europe
  • F-86D/K in NATO Service
  • Inside the Sabre Dog

And the total tale – in English – covers every country involved:

  • The United States
  • Denmark
  • France
  • West Germany
  • Greece
  • Italy
  • The Netherlands
  • Norway

Quantities. Serials. Units. Service. Fates. And more.

The lavishly illustrated, landscape-format effort sports over 120 color and B&W photos. Isometric action illustrations sample the stunning swath of Sabre Dog NATO colors and markings – unit heraldry included. And tech-manual excerpts add lots of solid gen for detail enthusiasts.

Revell's 1:48 F-86D. Hasegawa's 1:72 Sabre Dog. Even Airfix's ancient effort. This vivid volume will prompt plenty of terrific project possibilities.

I loved this superb little study. And I hope Editions Minimonde76 offers many more meaty monographs on other legendary NATO fighters.

Robustly recommended!

My sincere thanks to  Minimonde76 Publishing for the review copy!
