The model will have a 56" wingspan, be of foam core wing and fully built up fuselage construction, and will be a glassed finish.
As there is a mass-build event for the F-86 Sabre, I decided to do it differently (for a change!) and make the SUPER version instead.
The wing is in production with Cloud Models, using a decent slope section, and should be ready soon. The fuselage is already well under way at home.
|Formers all cut from 1.5mm birch ply|
|Notched and lightened|
|Built around a lite-ply crutch|
|Fin being built up|
|Fin pinned on temporarily|
|Some more stringers added, and sheeting / planking started|
Well, she should be ready quite early in the season next year, and I'm looking forward to flying her. The C17 of course is still being worked on in the background, but when I need a break from glassing and sanding, I like to keep modelling momentum up with some balsa bashing.
