(March 2017 Issue)

Airfix Model World wrote an article about José Pires's FU-539 model build. The added many detailed photos of the effort that was put into building it. There is also another article afterwards that has Sabre related information.

José Pires states "The model is the famous F-86F-30 Sabre. The kit is Eduard`s offering as a limited editions and my friends... it`s well worth it! The box contains 87 well moulded plastic pieces (Hasegawa), which turns the project on a fast ans hassle free build. Then, to top it off, Eduard throws inside two sets of PE metal, (one coloured and one plain),an resin ejection seat and gourgeous decal sheet beautifully printed by Cartograph."

Info Eduard
(December 2015 Issue)

In late September, I received an email from the Eduard model company. They were interested in making a decal variation for their 'Ultimate Sabre' F86-F 1/48 scale model kit. It can be purchased on their website as model kit #1163. Eduard model company added an article on FU-539 with a brief history story account of my father. We communicated stories with Eduard through email.
