Falcon Models FA723003 USAF F-86D Sabre Dog 357th FIS, SAC Nouasseur AB, French Morocco 1/72 Scale
The 357th deployed to Nouasseur Air Base, French Morocco where it was tasked with the air defense mission for Strategic Air Command forward bases used by Boeing B-47 Stratojet aircraft on Reflex deployment to Morocco. The unit received new HVAR rocket armed and airborne intercept radar equipped F-86D Sabre interceptors in early 1955. The unit remained in North Africa until 1960 when it was inactivated.
The model is another fine representation of the F-86D. Paint quality is excellent and all the parts fit together well.
