Ade,

Thanks for the insights. I'd never thought of using MDF. So far I have a balsa plug that I covered in P38, but found it unsandable so chipped it all off again.

Anyway, I don't want to divert your thread so congrats once again on a fine product.

No problem Steve, it's always a learning curve, and I have learnt so much from the sages on here. MDF also relatively cheap! (an no grain!)

Cheers

Ade

Many thanks for the offer Dirk, but I'm ok for the moment. I've got three TF86's from the last pull. And my client has a little left if I get short.

Many thanks

Cheers

Ade,

The canopies arrived today. Great work, many thanks.

For those who have not heard of the TF86 here is a canopy comparison!

Ade,

It looks like it will fit just fine! Just need to sand the fuselage planking down first!

Glad to hear it got to you Austin. Look forward to seeing your F86 take shape.

I've finally worked out a workable solution for the air brakes, so I can now glue the fuselage together. The TF86 will be so much easier now!

Cheers

Ade
