I've had a bash at rendering the Yak-17 in the past but found its shape oddly elusive. But you sir have nailed it! Very nice  :icon_alabanza:

Fine renderings - you nailed it on both.
Can you do a picture bash and swap main wings between the two?

Any chance of you doing the original "straight-wing" P-86 proposal.  If need be, I think I know where to find pictures of the mockup of same.

Many thanks...

If you've got the refs, I'll give it a go.
May take a while as I'm in the middle of a new profile set, but I'll definitely take a look.

Here's the reference I've got on the NA-140, the straight-winged P-86 Sabre:  http://tanks45.tripod.com/Jets45/Histories/NorthAmerican-XP-86/Sabre.htm

I'm thinking a blend of a Matchbox F-86A and a suitable FJ-1 Fury (it seems a worthy use of a Merlin Models FJ-1 kit) would be a good starting place for actually modelling one.

To build Arsenal INSPIRED bash.  How about a F-8 with F-100 wings and B-58 engine (J-79) at wing tips?

Well, going by the size differential, I could see doing the basic airframe in 1/72 and doing the wingtip engines using pods from a 1/48 Hustler.
