Having almost finished my sabre I know how much work goes into these models.

My hat goes off to you, truly amazing work. Hopefully

I will get to see it. It will certainly put my model to shame.

Hi Dirk,

Your glass framework really is a beauty, young man.

It's amazing now to see how different the frames are between the F-86 and the Dog version. cool

Looking forward to seeing your ejection video... surprise

Cheers

Chris

I've been testing today with the canope release system and the ejection seat.

Throwing off the canope went well but ejecting the seat requires some modifications.The tention on the seat is too strong for the servo to retract the seat pin.I will try tomorrow with a 6V battery instead of 4.8V

I also moved the release pin more towards the center of the servo ,for more torque.

Clever stuff Dirk, I can't wait to see it in action, I assume the weight pulls forward to compensate for the loss of the chair and a canopy.

D.D.

You posted your video while i was writing.

Here's you Video.

The weight is released together with the seat Dwain. To retrieve it , i still have to find a solution, or a searchdoglaugh

Or just bring a few spares...

The size will be determined when everything is painted..

Cheers & keep safe

You will have to tie some string to that spring or you are going to lose it.

Nice progress, Dirk. yes

Are you using acrylic or glossy cans for your paint job?

Looking at your pic, it appears like being shiny enamel, possibly Motip?

Cheers

Thanks Ken !

Hi Chris ! you're right , it is MOTIP autolack acryl ,

It spray's glossy but dry's satin like , but you can do an amazing job ,polishing after hardening out .

Thanks for answering, Dirk.

I've never been polishing acrylic spray can car paint so far.

I guess I must keep my eyes open when visiting your build thread then... cool

Thanks & cheers

Chris
