Ooooh! Nice!

Easy colour scheme to replicate as well.

Hi Andy,

I have just been onto the SLEC website and the minimum balsa list came to £45.

Please bear in mind that I am a miser when it comes to using balsa, and try to use all of a sheet up without any wastage!

Hi Andy,

£60 seems a bit high at first glance. However, I already had the wood in the workshop. I will total it up later when I get back to the hotel.

Take it slow when building and ask lots of questions. There are plenty of Sabres being built for this event, with lots of them hopefully being documented in the various build blogs.

I would hazard a guess that you will probably get more than one answer on how to complete something if you ask a question! laugh

Try SLEC. **LINK**

there sizing is 9.5mm by 38mm TE stock.

False LE and TE are cut from 1/8" sheet at 5/8" wide. (5/8" is the widest needed for the LE root). Four strips all the same size is easier to cut than two different sizes of tapered material.

The actual trailing edge (ailerons/flaps) are from pre shaped TE stock 3/8 thick and 1.1/2" wide.

Hope that makes a bit more sense than the abbreviated version.

Sweet. Good contrast of colours between the top and bottom sides!

Hi Ray,

It looks like Andy has now chosen a red scheme.

I like that colour scheme Mark.

Look forward to seeing it on the hill next year.

Well spotted Kooka. It was the RAF style roundels that fooled most people.

We chose that scheme for the prototype model because of the prototype markings on the full size.

Are you going to join in the mass build?

Using the flaps and ailerons as CROW brakes (butterfly) really helps slow the model down for landing.

Also allows the option of drooping the wing trailing edges to increase the section camber for when the wind drops.

Most modern transmitters allow this sort of programming.

I like the red scheme. Should be easy to see in the air as well.

Are you planning on adding drop tanks?

Hi Andy,

Nice colour scheme but I think Ray Ball has just beaten you to it!

I will be attending the Great Orme event this weekend. If you have requested to pick up a kit at this meeting, it will be there.

There should also be a couple of extra kits, as well as a few plans, available as well.

Definately aluminium in my opinion. If you overstress it then the aluminium will bend and you still have a chance of a safe landing. Carbon will break and you could destroy the model.

Seen it happen a number of times, albeit with aerobatic planes.

Why not add something special to it?

Hello Toshiro,

Parcel tracking indicates that your kits have been delivered today.

Can you confirm that please?

I look forward to meeting you.

The photo looks to me to be of a camera recon aircraft with those lumps on the fuselage sides.
