Malaysia National Day



This kit was built with a Tasman Avon conversion kit that provided the necessary fuselage, and the rest of parts taken from the Academy F-86 kit.  The Academy kit matched the Tasman profile pretty well, the rear section of Academy's fuselage was used to enable the airbrake to be displayed in open position.  A pair of fuel tanks from an old Hasegawa kit was also added.
