The latest release in the Aviation Workshop Profiles series is North
American, Canadair, Commonwealth F-86 Sabre in RAF, RCAF, RAAF, SAAF,
Pakistani and Malaysian Service, by Jon
Freeman. The title might be a bit of a mouthful, but the contents are
very tasty and easy to digest!
In common with earlier titles in the series, this book is crammed
full of profiles of the subject - in this case 88 profiles of Sabres in
the service of British and Commonwealth countries. 22 of the aircraft are depicted
in four-view diagrams on a full page. Jon Freeman's artwork will already
be familiar to many of HyperScale's visitors, and his work here is
clean, clear and very attractive.
At 44 pages (plus covers), this title also includes introductory text
for each country, and five pages of colour photos. These are very
helpful for modellers. The captions are usefully detailed
too, covering colours, markings, operations and references.
The book is logically structured by country:
Aviation Workshop's "On Target Profile" series is an ideal format for
modellers. In my opinion, these British and Commonwealth Sabres offer
some of the most colourful and varied subjects of any single military
On Target Profiles 6 is another terrific title that
will provide plenty of inspiration for modellers.
There are plenty of available kits and conversions for each Sabre
