Firestreak Sabre


Recommended Posts

This model is built using the forthcoming Red Roo conversion for A94-922 - the Sabre used for the working up of the Blue Jay missile system. This was put into production as the Firestreak.

 

This is the 1/72 version and uses the HPM/Tasman fuselage and the Red Roo slatted wings.

The conversion will actually be a complete kit and will include the fuselage, wings, resin parts for missiles and radome and an Academy Sabre kit to use for wheels, tailplanes. canopy etc.

Very nice build of an interesting variation of "the most formidable Sabre of all". It's all good but I really like the aluminium finish and the stencils.

Is there going to be a 1/48 version?

One of my colleagues pointed out that A94-922 had two pitot tubes while engaged in these trials. Just to show we keep up with the latest information, here it is with two pitots.

I considered photoshopping the existing one on to the other wing but it was easier to fix the model!

 

As to the 1/48 version, it is dependent on acquiring some fuselages. The HPM moulds are beyond redemption and quantities of the plastic are long sold out. We are hoping HPM will at some stage have a new fuselage which we can use.
