    RE: BVM F-86 80

    Hi Eric,

    I still have the gold powder and i was unable to get any help from the paint people to help me figure out a way to get it to dissolve in todays type of paint. So i took it and had them scan a small amount of it to give me a close match in a color that i could use.

    The parts you see sitting on the table still need to have a clearcoat sprayed onto them so i think it will darken up a little bit once i do that.

    The fuse is in clear along with all the other small parts. I'm just now getting to the wings for a block sanding and filling then come the panel lines and more primer.

    I'm finally finished with the last of the colors on the fuse. I ended up doing flite-metal on the leading edges and tail pipe. Now i can concentrate strictly on the wings.

    Pictures will come later when this server works again.

    RE: BVM F-86 80

    Greg,

    great job you have done there, a lot of prep work has gone into getting a good base to start from.

    What is the paint (brand, colour) and the clear coat you have used here, its turned out very well.
    Its going to look great against a clear blue sky !

    In regards to the eagle motif on the side, I am assuming thats a paint mask with decals for the nomenclature.

    thanks,

    Dale

    RE: BVM F-86 80

    Hi Dale,

    All of the paint is the PPG DBC base coat. The whole plane is completely done in paint. There are no decals for the nomenclature on the airplane. The only thing i had made as a vinyl decal is the flag emblem on the tail. The color for the blue is insignia blue and the red is insignia red. The white is just a base white and the gold is from a 1974/75 chrysler called Inca Gold Poly. The clear is PPG 2042. Yes i did have paint masks made for everything including all the lettering and the maple leaf roundels.

    Greg, you are an inspiration and a truly quality builder and painter. Too bad BV hasn't reproduced his Hun in 125-150% bigger size. Can you imagine a nice BV 98-105" Hun???!!!! Wow! I would pre-order 2 kits the day it was announced !

    Lock up your Hun with David Searles' Airworld Hun in a dark room (with some candles and a bottle or two of Wine) for a few nights. Hehehe!

    As far as compliments, just stating the truth bro!

    RE: BVM F-86 80

    Are your wing tanks in the right place?

    I notice this Sabre is unusual in that the tanks are carried on the inner pylons
    or did they fly in both positions?

    BTW, your Sabre looks fabulous! - John.

    Hi John,

    Yes the tanks are in the right position. They just might not look right without the main gear in the wing. I think they were able to carry them in either spot.

    It's time for me to sit back and take a break and admire my work. Then i will finish up with the programming and fuel system.
