    Researching the CA-27 Sabre

    Hi Guys, I'm trying to gather as much information as I can on the Avon Sabre for a 1/3 scale r/c build, and I don't know if it's just my complete lack of google-fu or if the information is unavailable, but I'm really struggling to find the details I need to even consider drawing a plan. What I really want is blueprints of the fuselage, I know that's not asking a lot, it's asking the impossible, but if there's any group of people in the world who regularly defy the odds, it's modellers For those interested in the r/c side of things, the span will be a gnats whatsit over 12' 4", power will be from a 20 + kg turbine, and at the moment I'm hoping the finished wet weight will be under 35kg. I'm going to experiment with replacement materials for "light" ply and spruce, balsa/glass or foam/glass laminates for fuse formers and the thicker ribs, and balsa/glass or balsa/carbon for stringers. Thanks, Shane

    First Look - Civilized Models 1/32 BD-5J resin kit

    I certainly do Mike, for a weird plane fan like me it was pure plane porn

    I thought about putting a MK82 under the fuse, but it'd probably be bigger than the plane! The Scaled Composite Ares is my inspiration http://stargazer2006.online.fr/aircraft/pages/ares.htm , I love that thing:)

    I'm ordering 2, one for the stash and 1 for a bit of whiffery - a BD5 fighter armed with daisy bb guns

    If by "being facetious" you mean "being a smart arse" then your spot on

    HK Lancaster.

    I know it's probably just a test shot, but the lines of that Lanc look a tad wrong..

    New HpH DC-3 Pics up!!

    It's an odd one alright, 50/50 od and metal, RAAF Squadron, Dutch markings and a VH reg - I think I've just been sold on getting a DC-3, it's too weird not to do

    I initially saw delicious, not delicate, and wondered how you'd fillet one?

    I've found that geckos tend to keep the spider population down, but then you need something to keep the gecko population under control...

    If they upscale the 1/48 Tweet to 1/32, I'll take 3.

    Only Three Short Weeks

    I'm restricting myself to OOB builds for a while, I have an O-2 on the bench that needs some re modelling in a few areas and that's taking all my modelling patience at the moment. ( I'm trying to turn it from an O-2 into a modern rebuilt 337 http://www.therocket2.com and it's fighting me all the way
