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

... 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?

Hi Andy,

Thanks a lot for your proposal.

But I really don't have much details regarding seat & cockpit so far as I want to get my fuse shape correct at the time.

At the moment, I only have some info/pics at the height of the canopy and nothing more. I'm basing my 'interpretation' on the measures from my plastic kit so far. Yep, I know you don't like those "CAD monkeys"- work... blush

Anyhow, I'm going to have only my driver down to his waist at the most.

Thanks again & cheers

Chris

Hi All, thought I would pop this here, this magazine is currently on sale, got mine in Tesco, but I'm sure its probably in WH Smiths and other outlets. Its approx 160 pages of Sabre history and information. Its a good reference for lots of the detail needed in the build: panel lines, nose shape, tail shape and the tailplane/ fin rear fuselage shape! It covers all the marques including the Fury and Sabre dog. Plus its a good read!

( I think its availability has been mentioned in a blog - by John Tee in Tony's build blog, so apologies if this is a repeat).

IMPORTANT NOTICE

With the current situation around the globe our planned Mass Build event date is in serious jeopardy. In the interest of being able to run our seasons 'flagship' event at full strength with everyone in attendance, I am moving the event back from our June Fly-In to our September Fly-In.

So please now plan to have your Sabres complete for an event running 5th/6th September 2020.

We will stage the Mass Build competition on Saturday 5th September, keeping Sunday as a back up.

All event notices have been altered accordingly. Many thanks for your understanding.

PSSA
