..... I'm about to settle down to fried octupii and chips.,............ devil

... I thought 'Calamari Fritti' would be a bit more classy for those poor overworked little animals... angel



I don't think they deserved fancy food Chris lol. Anyway, one to go. May chose a squid instead.......... cheeky

That's not good Ade, you have more than one, and less than three models worth of balsa to assemble into ... something or other!

I'll probably end up with the 'other'........... cheeky

Hi David,

Did an order with Slec…….(for more than one but less than three), and was shade short or £90......including £10 post etc. Have you doubled up there somewhere?

Hi Danny,

Any chance doing a few post about the RDS adaptors; I'm sure this would be useful. Especially as quite a few of the lads have access to 3D printers.

Don't worry about the time, there are many Sabre's that have not hit the bench yet! Let the others make the mistakes, then take advantage angel

And if you like a colour scheme, then go with it. It's your model after all.

Impressive Chris, very useful info. I was thinking of using ammonia when planking to ease the stresses. Anyone else used ammonia when planking?

Maybe Nugget ( I forgot we christened you with that name at one of the meetings ) back to the gold paint heavier thing, you maybe need more thinners around the gold ingot your using?

but it's 18 carrot...…….. cheeky

Watching this one Flyer. I was going to have a crack at this version. I went to Halfords and they told me they were out of stock after a bloke in South Wales bought the entire nation's stock?

Incidentally just finished the Vulcan book - really enjoyed it and quite emotional too, reads like a thriller. Will let you have it back at the next meeting.

No problem Pete, it's a good read for someone who has an interest in Vulcans.

Not 100% sure about that gold paint though, seems to weigh heavier than silver...…….

cheers Ade( Golden Nugget)

img_0574.jpgThere looks to be a lot of wood in that package; I wonder if there's enough for more than one Sabre? angel

Courier just dropped this off at 4.58pm. Think I may just finish work and get home to clear the building board.

With all these Sabres........... I think we may need a bigger hill !!!

Looking forward to seeing your solutions Danny.

Think the prototype had them exiting the bottom of the wing Phil, no doubt Martin will post a pic when he's around. From memory they are side mounted with a small ply plate covering them.

Well, just ordered my woodpack, as I hope to start this weekend. Been slow out of the blocks as been trying to sort one or two things for the build. Hope to post up a few things in a day or so.

And I've ordered more gold paint !!

Plenty of impressive schemes to choose from for the Sabre - but who's up for a conversion challenge??

We all love a 2 seater variant - I didn't even know there was a twin stick Sabre but look what I've found over lunch today - only 2 ever made apparently the project being shelved in favour of the twin seat F-100 in the end.


There's other mods including a taller fin and longer tail strake to accommodate the extra nose length - who's up for it?? 'More glass, more class!'

Shhhhh Phil......... or they'll all want to do that.........

There may well be variants already planned.......... angel
