Are the rumors true?!

Slats? Airbrake?

According to Rob, it’s fairly easy to handle. Takeoffs are straight and rotation is smooth. In flight plane is responsive to power and rolls are axial. Little to no coupling in knifeedge and point rolls / slow rolls are sport like. Landings are gentle and once in ground effect the nose can be pulled to a higher alpha stance and it settles in nicely.

Looks like more of a "sport" F-100 than your typical BVM detailed version. Probably an early sample, but that paint work is not exciting me

Any idea on price?

The original F-100 was a big boy for its day.

Now, it is the size of the drop tanks on most jets today!

This is kinda an exciting development for me. I had to do a double take when I read itís 120 size turbine....One of my concerns would be size and space for equipment install? This type of thing.

itís refreshing seeing some smaller scale jets come into the market since not everyone can buy or store a A380 sized jet. Also glad itís something different other than a F16 or a viper jet etc

lol....one would think but invariably I take the tanks apart and re-do them. On my 1/7.75 F-18 (which I love btw) itís been a bit squishy working in there....I know I know, suck it up buttercup....lol

Lol yeah I do know what you mean though with them being tight to work inside. Iím not sure what the F100 would be like because the nose is basically a intake so most of the internal is air ducting to the engine. Hopefully we will get more pics soon

I have a model of the F-100 in the kit, really and a very complicated jet of internal space. Very laborious to build.
It is not a jet for beginners, but nothing but a good Gyro Cortex to tame him Rssss.

If you don't mind me asking, what paint did you use for the silver? I'm almost ready to apply the color to my F-86 and am undecided on how to do it.

Funny

I remember the day someone asked BV about the slats and he said it would not fly without them. I had to laugh as we had already done so. I think it was the competition of the day with a certain other manufacturer having one without slats.

Anyway I think PNP are here to stay and Ill be interested to see what it looks like and how it flys in person. Should be a good one!!!!

No slats?!

That's the best/most unique feature of BV's Supre Sabre! (see what I did there?)

And is it only the F version? Paint schemes, etc..

I agree too it should have slats. Thatís one of the first things I thought of when I saw the PNP F100 thread is that it will be cool to have slats as a feature

A quick call to bvm can answer most of these questions fellas. Rob is more than accommodating. Bummer about no slats but lots of other positives to this bird. His initial impression of this bird in addition to the F15 has more thumbs up than space allows in this post. Florida Jets is just around the corner in addition to Mississippi Afterburner. I’m impressed with the paint job and look forward to seeing in person.

Yes, you are correct sir!

I still love my hun, and I sometimes think about what I would do if I lost her. I’m not sure I would want to live w/o the slats, but building another one....boy that’s ALOT of work!
