Product Description

The two seat F-100 "Super Sabre" fighter, built by North American, was the first operational aircraft capable of flying faster than the speed of sound (760 mph) in level flight. It made it's initial flight on May 25, 1953 and the first production aircraft was completed in October 1953. North American built 2,294 F-100's before production ended in 1959. The F-100 was also used by the French, Turkish, Danish and Taiwanese air forces.

Designed originally to destroy enemy aircraft in aerial combat, the F-100 later became a fighter-bomber. It made its combat debut during the Vietnam conflict where it was assigned the task of attacking such targets as bridges, river barges, road junctions, and areas being used by infiltrating enemy soldiers.

The F-100C, which made its first flight in 1955, featured such advances as an in-flight refueling system, provisions for extra fuel drop tanks and bombs under the wings and an improved electronic bombing system.

The F-100D, which made its first flight on Jan. 24, 1956, was the most advanced production version. Its features included the first autopilot designed for a supersonic jet and a low-altitude bombing system.

About these Handcrafted Airplane Models:
This beautiful handmade airplane model is an authentic replica made from the finest grade of select kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. The airplane model is made entirely by hand: From the handcarving of the aircraft fuselage, wings and tail section, to the sanding of the aircraft's contours. Every part is assembled precisely into place. After shaping and sanding, the airplane model passes through several stages of priming and sanding before it is hand painted to duplicate the actual colors, emblems and insignias of the original historical aircraft. Finally, multiple coats of clear lacquer are applied to protect the artwork and provide an overall glossy finish.
