    My Sabre is coming along quite well. Printed on a little Anycubic I3 Mega. Fantastic little printer.

    First aluminium coat on. Going to do RAAF Black Panthers scheme. Still a bit more painting to go, then decals.

    Happy with it so far.

    Cheers Tim

    Hi, What etracts did you find to work? I am about where you are on mine with building, but haven’t found the right retracts yet.
    Regards,
    D.

    Hi D,

    I used Freewing retracts.

    This one for the nose wheel, but it won’t fit the original size front tire and rim. Had to scale it down.

    These for the rear retracts,

    Made them fit, worked out ok.

    Cheers T

    Got a lot of the decals cut this weekend so getting closer to finishing.

    Happy with it. Just a few more things to finish off.

    Cheers T

    Thanks,

    For retracts, try the ones in the link above that I posted from RC Castle. That’s what I’m using. They need slight modding but fit quite well.

    Couple more photo’s

    Amazing result!

    I´ll try to print it is gray or silver, the silver will be better?

    best regards,

    Hi,

    great plane – congrats. What kind of color did you use (make/model)? I am looking for some chrome paint but have not found anything yet.

    BR, Harald
