Build your static model fleet with the 1/48 Scale F-86F Sabre Jet "Skyblazers" Plastic Model Kit. In the spring of 1949 the first flights of the Skyblazers air demonstration team took place in the skies over Europe at the airbase in Furstenfeldbruk, Germany.
The pilots formed part of the 22nd fighter squadron from the 36th fighter wing which were known as USAFE (United States Air Forces in Europe). The team was instructed by the USAFE headquarters to create an aerobatic team using the F-80B aircraft and perform demonstrations throughout Europe.
In 1953 the team came under the command of the 48th fighter-bomber wing based in Chaumont, France and soon after the F-80B was replaced by the F-86F Sabre jet which remained in service for several years. During this time the team continued to perform air demonstrations throughout Europe using the F-86 and were known as the Skyblazers.
The Italeri range of kits are manufactured from tough styrene plastic and provide a high level of scale detail.
