1/48 Academy F-86 and 1/48 Monogram Mig-15
Gallery Article by Konley Kelley - April 03, 2009
Plane Type: Jet; Plane Name: F-86; Scale: 1/48; Kit Manufacturer: Academy
I've added another image to my "Aces in 1:48 Scale" collection. In this image, Capt. Joseph McConnell, flying a F-86F Sabre is shredding the tail of a Chinese pilot in Mig Alley. The Sabre is a 1:48 scale Academy kit with markings for Capt. McConnell, the top U.S. ace in the Korean War. The Mig-15 is an old 1:48 Monogram kit.
The ground was generated using a 3D software package called Vista Pro. The dry, rugged terrain of Korea is actually a 3D demographic map of mountains in Aspen, CO!!!
This was a fun project and the Academy kit is really good with a lot of extras. It was fun to build.
