Progress to date, Canopy not shown as I am still struggling with it, Ive made a second master, which I am happier with, I just need to frame it up. If life doesnt get in the way I will be delivering mid next week to customers.

All feedback is appreciated.

I have devised a simple way to make the wing cuts, so the modeller need not be too concerned about the cutting part of the conversion

V.P.

I agree. Also if you look at the two different pictures, there seems to be a 1/48 and a 1/72 set, they are very different

I'm not a big fan of the Airfix Sabre but if I can do an proper RAF Slatted F4, I may have to get one

Just worked out its £38 delivered not including any charges you might get from the post office + HMRC robbing gits VAT. That could come to £53 !!

Not sure if I want one that much!

Double ouch, I have an F-86A going at the moment using the old cutting edge set, it's going to be "Wham Bam " my all time favourite F86 nose art. I do hope that It will be available as wings/slats only and that the price will be more affordable.

I intend to post my Sabre in RFI eventually, I don't think it will be ready for the group build, because we've recently acquired a puppy (as well as 2 other dogs and 2 horses) so I'm not getting a lot of time in the man cave!

1/48 F-86A Sabre conversion test shots.

Hi all, at last I have got test shots from the 1/48 A Sabre.

The resin is pretty good, some mods to the molds will make it better.

One thing I am not happy with is the clear resin canopy, so this morning I sent the canopy masters to Tore Martin so the conversion will have very high quality Falcon canopies included, at the expense of yet another delay of approx 1 week.

A plus is I am now selling the slat wing conversion seperately if you want one, but if you have ordered anA conversion with extra slat pack added, i will post all together to save postage.
