Ideal XF-86 Saber - Silver HP

I ended up with three XF-86 Saber's from Ideal's "Jet Plane Assortment" Set No. 4851, one in red and two in silver. As these were made in assorted colors there may be green and blue and yellow and who knows what else versions out there somewhere. That was a very common practice throughout the '50s and '60s - make the same toy in a rainbow of bright colors for variety. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Along with the red version I have, every one of these are tail draggers

This illustrates a small modification where Ideal beefed up the forward strut somewhat
