Damn, I won't even be home until Thursday! That is a great pic. I will look thru my 3 views, I have several.
And mine will have wing tanks. I posted a pic from the airshow that looks a lot like the formation shot except positions are reversed. And I thought it was a really tight formation.

Hey guys, this looks like it's going to be sweet! Can't wait to see the progress. Hey, dunno if you have these already or not, but if they can be of some use to you then here are some plans posted for the F-86 that I found once somewhere... I've never been back to the place where I found them, but they look like they may be from GGRN. Anyway, here.

EDIT: Well, shucks, the site won't upload 'em. However, they're real nice plans with wing ribs and fuse formers and everything, so if you want a copy of them, shoot me your emails in a PM and I'll try to send them to you that way.

Me, me, me, me, me

PS: Although what I'm really looking for is a plan for a DeHavilland Mosquito formers and ribs that I want to make out of Depron and balsa

I'd also suggest the Canadair Sabre (aka "Sword") -- the line that I've always heard about how to tell the difference was to look where the plane had been -- smoke -- American J-57 engine, no smoke -- Canadian Orenda engine

Yes, get a stiffie when I see a g'hawk -- first military aerobatics I remember seeing.

The 86 dogfighting the Mig at Nellis airshow was American, looked like it had a smoke machine!
