High Planes CAC CA-27 Avon Sabre RAAF 3, 77, 79 Sqn Conversion 1:72
The CAC Sabre was an Australian produced version of the North American F86 Sabre. It was reengineered to accept the Rolls Royce Avon engine which required substantial changes to the fuselage. It served with the RAAF until replaced by the Mirage IIIO. A number of the retired aircraft were passed to the Royal Malaysian Air Force and Indonesian Air Force (AURI)
This High Planes Models conversion provides the fuselage. It requires a Hobbycraft, Fujimi or Academy F-86F-30 kit for donor parts. Decals are included for 6 different operational aircraft with orange/green/chequered tail flashes to choose from.
For owners of earlier versions of this conversion, the revised instructions are available here.
The decals for this conversion are a combination of digital prints (squadron markings, serials and fin flashes) and silk screen (national markings and stencils). The digital print decals are finished with a continuous film and must be individually cut and applied with care.
Decal Options: RAAF x 6
This is an assembly kit for experienced modellers using limited run technology. Some clean up of parts and fitting will be required. Paint and cement not included. Suitable for ages 14 to Adult
