RAAF CA-27 Sabre A94-983

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!

Thats because Oz is like a humongous version of Texas. Similar climate and terrain’s, similar venomous Fauna, and wide open expanses with very large ranches and farms. 

All true- but no BBQ brisket or nachos! Hope you and Missus CFFU are no longer under the weather!

Yes were up to snuff here in Chicago. Hoping Texas is holding her own. 

I had the sniffles for a week, but am back in action; the war department, bless her heart, has been sick for going on two weeks- hope she gets better soon, as the foot rubs and ice cream runs are killing me! Thanks for asking, Dennis.

Ranches????? I think you mean stations!! Felt at home in Texas. Not so sure about Chicago though, but O'Hare was awesome.

It's possible to build it without the conversion kit.

I made mine by splitting the fuselage like CAC did. Of course, Red Roo Models made their conversion kit just after I finished it (I have one of their sets in the stash in case I'm inclined to do another)!

Looks good.

 

I have the High Planes set in 1.48 and about a dozen Tasman sets in 1/72 ( I picked them up as a job lot)

And I always thought it was the RAAF  Sabre! 😎

1/48 would be lovely...imagine a New Airfix Avon Sabre!

Maybe they'll follow up their new release Canadair Sabre with a CAC one!

That's the dream I've been living since the AMW leak range announcement! Although to be honest a 1/72 version would fit my plans better...!

But we do have LOUD race cars, and as an added bonus...cricket!!!!

 

My Avon Sabre conversion is waiting in the wings, for the right time, and the energy.

And outsized personalities to match it :)  But Texas gets the prize for hats.
