SAAF Sabres_Post-Korea Camo
« on: August 21, 2010, 08:03:25 AM »

hi guys  :)
thought i'd share a few skins i did for the Sabre, a set of 4 historical skins depicting Canadair Sabre 6 planes from 1 Squadron that replaced the F-86E/F's that were used in Korea. Also an unmarked blank included.
i did these from Casey1976's fantastic template, all credit to him for that.
hope you enjoy!  8)


download skins: http://storebror.it.cx/sas/archive/sas2/Malone/SAAF_Sabres.rar     8)
EDIT: i made a mistake with my reference on these skins. initially i thought they were used during Korea, but this particular version was the Canadair Sabre 6, of which 34 were used by the SAAF post Korea. 1 Squadron took part in the Korean conflict, using F-86E and F's, alongside SAAF Mustangs.
so these are post-Korean schemes, not Korean.  ;)

it was in fact very difficult to find an example of this, but i eventually found this profile in Vol.19 of The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Aircraft, and i did these from that profile, just because i really smaak the camo scheme.... ;D 8)

The South African IPMS site displays profiles of all the SAAF P51 and F86 that have served in Korea. Here are their profiles:

thanks for those pics, DreamK, i might just be tempted enought to try and do some of those...
there were, in fact, several other markings/schemes used by the SAAF during Korea, but htose are good examples of the main schemes used... ;) 8)

Hi Malone,

These are great sabres

I really like the camo more unusual than the US version.  ;)

The silver with yellow bands does get a tad boring over time.

Isn't Cirx playing an Invasion South Africa?  ;D

I read somewhere in the forum he was.

Once again great job on the skins  ;)
