Martin,

Could you please send a photo of your installation as I'm not visualizing fully how you've installed your servos.

All the Best

Martin,

Did you use Servi Tape to mount your servos onto that thin piece of ply that you can remove?

All the Best

Guys,

A few more photos of my build, including my error in not noticing the part F4A as it wasn't indicated on the drawing only as a doubler so I made them.

All the Best

Guys,

Bottom wing skins have been joined up and starboard side upper spruce spar fitted.

Ade,

Thanks for your response, I'll wait for Martins photo as I'd like to see what structure he put in place to see them too or did he just use servo tape onto the bottom wing.

All the Best

Guys,

Has anyone got any photos of how they've mounted their wing servos as I've got Turnigy TGY-9018MG servos to install, just looking for a bit of advice from someone that's ahead of me in the wing build.

All the Best

Martin,

I'm just starting the build of the wing and have noticed at the front between R3 port to R3 stbd their is a 4.76mm thick piece of ply. Is the shape of this defined anywhere or do you just fit a piece in place and sand to suitable section but I do see we need dowel holes placed in this also. Any photos you may have of this would be grateful.

Also and photos of how you installed the servos would be good as well.

All the Best

Tigger,

What number are you proposing to use and look forward to seeing you on the Great Orme in June 2020.

Guys,

Wing jig dry assembled already for glueing with some triangular corner gussets made to add some strength and rigidity to the structure.

Only fiddly bit was the joining of the lugs in parts J2, J3 & J4.

Guys,

I've managed to hopefully neatly join the pieces of the wing jig as the lugs needed a bit of fettling to fit nicely together as can be seen in the photos.

All the Best

Guys,

Well today is the 1st Nov and it's time to start my F-86 Sabre 2020 Mass Build.

Just to show I've not cheated and started earlier, I thought I'd send some photos in with the bits on the building board all ready to start making the wing jig today.

All the Best

Toby,

I'd not picked up on that you'd picked that colour scheme.

Are you based in the UK or intend to meet at the Great Orme, if so I may change to another scheme.

Still a lot of time to change chosen colour scheme as we need to build these starting tomorrow.

Vulcan going to be put on back burner for abit now, but I've managed to install all the Aileron and Elevators servos into wing. I'm sure I'll get some time to do bits whilst waiting for glue to dry on the Sabre.

All the Best

Dear All,

Now I've chosen my paint scheme as below:-

Where do I find the information for the wings and tailplane?

Martin,

I bought some 48 inch long sheeting on advice from the group so that I can go from end to end, I take it the 1/4 inch planking still works for that also.

John,

Try Deluxe Materials Genuine Aliphatic Resin, I've been using that for building balsa models for years now.

Ade,

Thanks for your response. I've got a Airmaster Tiger16/1010 3HP with 100 litre capacity which can give 14 cfm, I wasn't to sure if that would be far to much for the detailing work as I was going to do the majority of the first coat using the spray gun I've got for use with this.

Did you need any connectors that reduce in size. I know I will have to reduce the pressure.

All the Best

Mark,

I've not chosen a paint scheme for my Sabre yet. Have to say some of the really nice schemes have already been chosen by others, so I thought I'd keep quiet and just get it built and then choose near completion and tuen up on the day and give people a surprise.

What I was going to ask. It what type of modelling spray gun and compressor below have used and how difficult is it to use them.

All the Best
