I'm pretty sure that's a carrier... I found it interesting because I wasn't aware the Navy ever used the F-86. I searched a bit and can't find anything to confirm it. Anybody know?

US Navy and Marine versions were FJ=2 and FJ-3, depending upon the engine.
Known as the Fury.

It certainly must have seemed like an odd request to the fabricator.

What really ruins it for me is the raked angle of the Boxster windshield.

Sort of like these (see below) not to my personal taste creations.

Pure Rossi

I have seen the Rossi cars at car shows and in private collections, just not my thing. Same with the other boutique shop retro cars, they don't do it for me, but some are better than others.

In fact, the more they stray from the original inspiration and become something more of their own identity, the better I like them. The ones which are a mockery of hodgepodge elements are just too disturbing - no flow of lines, and awkward.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadair_Sabre

Quote:
Canadair produced six versions of the CL-13 Sabre. The sole Sabre Mk.1 was essentially the same as the North American Sabre F-86A. It had a General Electric J47-GE-13 turbojet of 5,200 lbf (23 kN) thrust.......................

The Sabre Mk.5 was the next production version, equipped with an Orenda 10 with 6,500 lbf (29 kN) thrust. A change to the Orenda 14 with 7,440 lbf (33 kN) powered the Sabre Mk.6.

North American F-86 Sabre
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_F-86_Sabre

Quote:
The XP-86 was fitted with a General Electric J35-C-3 jet engine that produced 4,000 lbf (18 kN) of thrust. This engine was built by GM's Chevrolet division until production was turned over to Allison.[21] The General Electric J47-GE-7 engine was used in the F-86A-1 producing a thrust of 5,200 lbf (23 kN) while the General Electric J73-GE-3 engine of the F-86H produced 9,250 lbf (41 kN) of thrust.[22]
North American F-86A Sabre
Quote:
The F-86A-1-NA fighters could be recognized by their curved windshields and the flush-fitting electrically-operated gun muzzle doors that maintained the smooth surface of the nose. These muzzle doors opened automatically when the trigger was pressed to fire the guns, and closed automatically after each burst.

I read how the CAF used to take delight in waxing the USAF using the "Super Saber".

This has been posted before but what-the-hell. In keeping with the current trend - the F-86, a thing of beauty (for me at least) & is the personification of what a jet aircraft "should" look like.

Cheers
