I am truly biased where this Sabre is concerned, and I think this variant was the ultimate Sabre performer, and even though I love my 8th FBG Korean War F-86F's, I think this is the most beautiful of them all! A shame she is grounded due to bang seat issues, but I am hoping she can be returned to the airshow circuit. I never had the pleasure to have seen and heard her fly, as many of you have, but I bet it was an experrience! Needless to say, we are LONG overdue for a state of the art Avon Sabre in my scale or 1/48! Mike (Texan by birth, Aussie by inclination!) https://aviationmuseum.com.au/raaf-ca-27-sabre/
I thought some of you might enjoy seeing photo and video footage of two ongoing birdcage Corsair restorations. The one at the Museum of Naval Aviation will be a static display airplane, but the other will be airworthy. There is one other airworthy birdcage Corsair, but IIRC, it was built from an F4U-1A that was extensively modified to have a birdcage canopy and quarter windows. I can't believe I beat @Corsairfoxfouruncle to the punch on this one!

Did any of you know about this? I can't wait to see the finished product! Looks like another modeling project for Tony! Mike http://warbirdsnews.com/aviation-museum-news/handley-page-hampden-fuselage-whole-again-at-raf-museum-cosford.html
Found this just now while trolling for schemes; evidently a B5N2 recovered from Papua, New Guinea is being restored to static display status. See the link below as well as an additional link to this aircraft's history. I would rather see a TBD, but the Kate was also a very historically significant aircraft, and just as rare.
