Description
This F-100 Super Sabre is a replica wood scale model of the original USAF F-100 aircraft manufactured by North American Aviation. Super Sabre just may be the coolest name ever given to a fighter jet. The F-100 has made history as the first USAF fighter jet to fly at super sonic speeds at level flight. Its prototype was called the Sabre 45 due to its 45 degree wing sweep. It officially entered USAF service in September of 1954.

The F-100 Super Sabre model is an authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft that has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed. It also arrives with an attractive wood base for display.
