Well Cloudriderurt you could get some Dow blue styrofoam (hopefully you can find 2" thick or 4" thick pieces) or failing that multilayered depron (glue the layers together to build a block big enough) or even white EPS foam and glue it to the front of the F-86 and carve/sand a new nose piece. Use quality 3 views or photographs to get the side shape correct and the nose opening close to where you want. A side view photograph or 3 view of the nose enlarged on a zerox or printed on the pc using a program called tileprint (lets you scale a bitmap to a desired size and print it out) could give you a template for carving the foam. After that adding in inlet tube to the fan with thick paper cardstock or fiberglass sheet or 1/64 ply could be made to feed the fan.
