Please see below the first couple of segments already assembled. The fit is good so far.

Kind regards

This is going to be phenomenal Mac, yeah the silver cardstock should lend itself to this beauty very well indeed. You are on a roll, keep at it my friend

Hello gents,

White cardboard A4 sheets, scissors and glue are those type of 'goods' which never run out from my special stash

However, very recently, I had a bit of problem with non-genuine glue and it goes back to it's seller ASAP.

Anyway, back to the subject...

I managed to draw a connection part which joins the nose segments/parts of F-86. It is going to give some support there as well.

Because for now I need to leave the air intake duct I have experimented with various types of gradient to add 'some depth effect' onto the very first cross section.

Hopefully it works fine.

kind regards

Cybermac

This is very fun to watch your design progressing! Each week I eagerly anticipate seeing your progress.

Hello gents,

Jim G - I am really glad that you like my weekly updates and the progress on F-86 Sabre.
Thank you for your kind words!

Usually I can spend about 3-5 hours within a week directly on a project.
It is far too less compared to what I would like to achieve, but seems to be good enough to keep you gents updated on a weekly basis.

Next step is to glue them front bits all together and finish the design of exhaust segment.

Kind regards

Cybermac

Your work load is very high Mac, those precious few hours that you get to yourself and this project are used very well. Always look forward to your updates my friend

Smile The nose

Hello gents,

After a really busy week I just managed to print and glue the front bits all together


By the way, I just recently noticed that there are two different shapes of exhaust cross section of Sabre.

Versions A, E and all Canadairs got the oval egg shape cross section and all versions F with CAC Sabres got that shape flattened on the top.

All together it means that there is going to be more research to be done to get them both versions designed correctly.

kind regards

Cybermac

Cybermac, Beautiful work on the nose. The shape is amazing. Well done.

Smile ...wing

Hello gents,

Gary - I am glad you like it, thank you for your kind words!

Now a bit of weekly update:
I managed to get the airfoils done (9.0% at root and 8.1% at the tip of the wing, lifted by 1 degree).

Also for a couple of hours I had a real battle with the shape of the wing to get the 35.0-degree angle at the 25% of the cord of airfoil.

That was a bit of a tricky thing because the wing got 6+3 inches extension (so-called '6-3 hard wing).


kind regards

Smile ...wing 2nd part

Hello gents,

I had a bit of a challenging week, so I couldn't do almost anything on a project.

(my little son was 3 days sick after his vaccination and that put all of the routines including sleep upside down )

Anyway, just now I managed to develop the main shape of the wing.

The shape looks very simple, but to get it done with all of the dimensions and angles wasn't easy, especially because I am designing the wing for the very first time in a 'digital way'

Altogether I am getting a new experience and I am sure that the U-2A/D project will benefit from that quite soon.


kind regards

Cybermac

Cool Canopy

Hello gents,

After a challenging week I just managed to have a bit of time for the project and I just glued the canopy.

This is all one big part.

All it needs is a very delicate handling and a big bucket of... patience

Please see the photos below.

Kind regards

Cybermac
