The World of Scale Models / Re: Kinetic 1:32 Scale Canadair Sabre MK. VI RCAF
« Last post by lcarroll on February 25, 2024, 10:33:03 AM »
Thanks Rick. The "Sugar Scoops" are copies cast from the old AMS Resin ones by a fellow modeler here in our local IPMS Chapter. I'm not positive however I believe the product is no longer available,  mine were bought from Hannants some time ago. As you know there are a lot of easy mistakes you can be trapped by with this jet; the various wing configurations, dimensions and slats or not changed as different Marks were designed and there were exceptions. The Canadair Mark VI had  manoeuvring slats on the wing leading edges however there were some early in the production line with the "Hard" leading edge wing of the Mark V. Then there's the different vents and intakes like the scoops for the larger Canadian Orenda engine, the added span of the "6-3"wing and the beat goes on! Then of course the folks at North American were busy improving the design as well and then there's the Aussies building them with Avon engines etc. All this to say a great design and a very successful Fighter.
   Do restart that  JG 71 Build, it's a superb scheme and I'd enjoy seeing it here!
Cheers,
Lance

Hi all
I've added the rudder, elevator and aileron control lines to the cockpit
These are 0.5mm diameter blackened Brass tube with 'EZ' stretch line (Fine), as that line is more visible inside the cockpit

Very nice work Mike, that's come together very well. Looking forward to the next stage.

It's a pity that the build lines are still so evident on some of the parts. But at least these parts won't be too obvious on the finished build.

Hi Nigel,
Yes, but as you say, very little will be seen inside the cockpit once the fuselage is closed up.
Even less of the engine.

Excellent start Dennis. I know next to nothing about the Lohners but this looks like a neat design.

I need to buy another bottle or two of mojo!
If you could order me a case it'd be much appreciated!

Stephen, I've long admired your scratchbuilding and modelling skills (and your writing - your difficulty in getting the info down does not come across) but this is on a whole new level. Wow.
