All,

I signed up for email notification when they came back in stock.

I received them from HK in September.

For what it is worth, I have been on that email notification list for about 8-10 months

Everything else is stock.

Great job! Especially admire the cockpit detail.... alas the F86 Pilot from HK has been unobtainium!! Would like to do my new 'The Huff' with those good looking cockpit upgrades and learn more about doing Air Sally's nose cone upgrade. Haven't started The Huff yet... on more project to clear off the bench but I find this thread a constant source of inspiration and information! Again... Nice Lookg Sabre Jet!

Regards
Paul

Thanks Rodger! I'll likely fly it at the basin. I'd like to take you up on your offer of your glass nose.

Thanks again,
Tony

best way to find it is quick "thread tools" then show all attachments. You will find the post in a few moments as it is far less to sort through.

There you go Tony just get some decal paper from Smith Bros Hobby Shop and you can print these out to fit the fiberglass nose cone.get some model master alum silver as it is the closest to the stock color.
