Pictures of F-86 that is for sale.
The jet weighs 13.8 without batts. Thatís rounding up as I tried to balance it as steady as possible on the scale. As stated in the for sale thread it has some rash and prior repaired landing damage. The previous owner said he flew it in its current condition. Iím only selling as Iím flying my Baron more, and baby needed her fuel pumps overhauled. All four of them. I think itís a sound model. I just realized I wonít get to it anytime soon and itís time to let it go.
Thanks guys.

Picture showing length.
When mounted the retracted strut would pinch the airline to extend the gear. I sent both units into Robart and had the airline nipples changed from straight to 90* nipples. It solved the problem nicely. Both units mounted but never flown. The model only sat on the gear once before it was removed. I lost interest in the model and traded off the airframe.
