Hi all,hope i didn't bore you with the ''the making of'' the fuselage plug in 2016.

Meanwhile the rudder is primered and drying, and the front hatch is made the same way i did the motor hatch.In the background you see the tail cone also primered.This part also comes from the PSS moulds.

First drawn the hatch on the fuse as scale like as possible.The real fouga needs this opening to refill the guns in the nose.20191031_223336.jpg

Reinforcing the cover with foam blocks glued on but first put some tape in place to prevent the epoxy sticking to the hatch.20191031_231836.jpg

After cleaning up the hatches and openings,wing seat formed , rudder seat fitted , basically the fuselage is ready to be prepped for primer.But...

I'm taking part in the PSSA 2020 mass build F86 Sabre so, from now on i'm going to split my hobby-time in two as the mass build weekend is in June. No time to waste !!

Just a little update on when this blog is going to go on.20200421_223322.jpg

The PSSA sabre mass build ,that came in between the magister build,is now in primer mode .

I guess it will take another month to finish her .After that it's full throttle to get the magister in the air !

The sabre has gun ports,a full cockpit,working speed brakes,remouvable canope and last but not least a working ejector seat and parashute ! Stay tuned !! and thanks for visiting !
