Thread: Phil's F-86 Sabre build thread

Dallas,

I use West Systems 105 epoxy. It is not exactly cheap but has a low viscosity.

A quick google search revealed lots of stockists in Australia. This random pick is in Queensland:

Hi Al,

A scan of the article would be very nice, thank you.

Many thanks,

Martin.

I am looking for a copy of Flying Scale Models July 2005 edition.

Does anyone have a copy I can purchase? Failing that, I would be happy with a scan of the Felixstowe F2A article.

Martin.

Hi Chris,

Gordon likes to draw the plans using the metric system, even though I buy imperial thickness balsa!

Instead of 4.76mm try 3/16".

I think Gordon added a metric/imperial conversion table to the plan somewhere.

Thread: Vinyl cutter
26/06/2020 21:53:22

I have had lots of use from a Silhouette Cameo 3 vinyl cutter.

My one will cut 305mm wide and as long as you want. I also purchased the extra roller attachment for the front of it which helps when cutting longer masks.

The upgraded software (about £20) was also worth the extra cash, in my opinion.

The initial outlay of a few hundred pounds is soon recouped if you build lots of scale type models and sprayed on markings always look better especially when weathered.

Phil,

Great work, I am constantly amazed by how much extra detail are being added to some of the mass build Sabres.

I will probably be grinning like the Cheshire Cat when they all turn up on the hill at the same time!

Tony,

If you do want another Sabre, let me know, if required I can bring it to the next PSS meet, whenever lockdown allows!

Alternatively there are lots of plans/kits out there to choose from. Gordon and I are currently working on a Mig15 to the same scale as well as an Me109, also at 10th scale.

Ade,

It looks like it will fit just fine! Just need to sand the fuselage planking down first!

Ade,

The canopies arrived today. Great work, many thanks.

For those who have not heard of the TF86 here is a canopy comparison!

Austin,

I guess the lockdown is affecting production!

Very nice Ade. What do I owe you for canopies and postage?

04/06/2020 07:21:19

Looking great, Ade.

We could always add a sub association - the PSSSA.

Power Semi Scale Soaring Association just for us mere mortals! laugh

Thread: how well do you know transmitters
27/05/2020 10:06:06

Just noticed the last one looks to be 2.4GHz from the antenna lead so not a JR388S!

26/05/2020 22:22:47

I'm guessing the first one is a Futaba 6EX?

Second one is a Spektrum DX6?

Third one is Taranis X9D.

Forth one is possibly a JR tx - 388S?

Jim guessed correctly.

It is a 1/10th scale Mig15.
