    1/72 Tasman / Hobbycraft, I started working on this in 2005, don’t seem to have any early pic’s, I used the front of the Tasman fuselage and canopy all other bits Hobbycraft, painted in MM enamels with Future over mainly Tasman and High Planes decals, more to come, still working on this.

    Thanks Louis, I’ve hinged the tail planes, a bit of Future over decals, needs dulling a little.

    Allan, last of the sportin’ models! (that’s what they called our Sabre Hs) The Air National Guard hereabouts had them, so the chunkier Sabre is a favorite. Nice markings, as well. Mut have been a sight to see! Maybe somebody will do one or the other as a conversion kit in 48th. Nicely done. Went to the Indonesians? Didn’t know that!

    Thanks Bernard, A94-371 went to Malaysia with 9 others in 1969 plus 2 non flying training aids, joined by 6 more two years later, Indonesia received 18 in 1973. High Planes Models do kits and conversions in 1/48.

    Finished at last !! I remade the pitot and fuel dump, added the smoke pipe and navigation lights to wing tips.
