Some lovely neat planking showing after the sanding, great job.

I think the mouth may be a little like Wallace, from Wallace and Gromit

... superb indeed, Andy.

I wish I could ask you one for my Dog, but the Sabres D, K and L have a totally different ejection seat unfortunately.

Cheers

Chris

Always willing to take on new work - can you post some pictures of the seat?

First prints done. A couple of tweaks and she'll be good to go. Please excuse the pilot print quality - just done quickly as a draft for fitment purposes blush

The Antonov flies fine with anhedral - it's nothing to worry about, I'd stick it in, or go with section anhedral as per Martin's suggestion yes

..or alternatively just paint on some elongated ellipses - less drag and right first time! cool

The 374 is a good section too, for sure - very happy with it on my Sea Hawk. If it were me, I'd have the centre section of the wing built into the fuselage, and a two-piece plug-in wing. Leaves some scope for wing section tuning in the future, as well as a version with and without pylons / ordnance wink

Nice subject, and a good size too! Iv'e been building it's fly-off-competition stable mate, the Ilyushin 102 for a couple of years on and off. All ready for glass now - she'll get there some day!

I think Phil is giving some great advice there, you don't want to fly her like a pylon racer, and she'll slow up nicely on the landing run with all the draggy bits. I'd be tempted to leave at least a bit of weapons rails in place, maybe with some magnets sunk in before glassing. That way you can add all the weaponry on for a big air day, or just for stlye points in the pits laugh

Good luck with the build and keep us all updated, please.

Thread: Spitfire plans

Welcome, and I hope you enjoy your new aeromodelling hobby! If you really did want something scale-ish and WW2 for a trainer, you could maybe look at a Piper Cub (or Grasshopper in military use) or an Auster?

Either way, happy building, and leave that Spit for a third or fourth model yes

F86 bang-seat ready for printing - let me know if you want one. Just finishing off a period-correct pilot model to suit yes

An afternoon off at home with a poorly dog produces this, a seat for an F86. Let me know if anyone wants one printed, even just the top half for those not committed to a full depth proper scale aircraft (Phil) laugh

Phil's planking is always neater than everyone's laugh

We think he's a Prize Planker wink

Lovely pocketed ailerons. Don't forget to leave plenty of clearance for the thickness of your glassing! Strange about the wing length mismatch.

For any specific receiver Neil? FRSky ones here
