I have built two wood kits and now finishing my second PST reaction. It's a great knock around jet.

This is a great looking PST Reaction.

Can you please tell about the F-105 behind you?

It's a mirce model f104 in the background in primer
it is 1/4 scale. A little over 15 feet long. It uses the airworld landing gear.

The jet painted in camo is my phantasy in blue f84. Over 10 years old. Great jet. 1/5 scale and was once runner at top gun.

I am originally from Israel and the IAF flew the Fouga Magister until about 5 years ago. I am confused: are you building a Fouga from wood or fiberglass kit like the Aviation Design? There is also a beautiful kit available from Israel in 2 version. 1. Fouga Magister 2. Zukit - an Israeli improved Magister which was built under license for many years by the Israeli Aircraft Industries.

What scale / size is your Fouga going to be?

well.............

Assuming we are building the first one and that we want to deliver the best quality available , meaning a 2 month delay, you can order...... We are a very very confidential job, we would do it with passion and we won't have any money at the end

time to migrate to a dedicated thread

Back to our regular transmission.

Some work done on the fuse, sanded down the corners and entire fuse with 100 grit, next grit is 150.

Done with the 150 grit, it only took about 10 minutes to go over the fuse.

Done for tonight

After all I wasn't done for the night, I wasn't exhausted like yesterday and I've been thinking on moving the metal latch to the back of the hatch, it's done and It came out just fine, I made two holes right under the the metal pin to be able to push the latch mount as it was drying.
Now I'm done for the night for sure.
