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
- West Germany
- The Netherlands
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.
My sincere thanks to Minimonde76 Publishing for the review copy!
