    Canadair Sabre Mk 5

    Classic example of bad information The scoops were a feature of Orenda powered Sabres, both Mk5s & Mk6s. They came into use in the mid`58 timeframe. Thats why GH Mk5s have the sugar scoops

    Black, there is a T-33 at the museum at the Vic airport, you can easily gain access to the cockpit. Tony

    RCAF T-33 Seats and GWH Kits

    In that era, the shoulder harness did not go through the headrest. The pilot sat on a survival seat pack similar to the Tutor seat pack. I get home later tonight, Brad, I can send some pics 😀 Tony

    RCAF T-33 Seats and GWH Kits

    The T-33 seats didn’t have too many versions, Brad. They should work fine. Later in the nineties, the shoulder harness came through the headrest. What era are you doing? Tony

    I've been known to put a model on ARC, HS, Britmodeller at the same time. Nobody has complained yet. Tony

    Display Case vs. aircraft sub-forums

    Relax, I'm still getting amused by all the 'good job' comments, when all they are trying to say is 'I like that colour scheme/decal set'. Forgetting to look at the actual construction/painting of the model. Keep it up folks :) Tony
  13. My grampa's cousin was laid to rest on 14 Mar 2018 in Perth cemetery near Zillebeke, Belgium. Both my brothers and I, and many cousins from the UK made it to the ceremony. We also were privileged to meet the archaeologists and they took us to the field where Thomas was found. A very moving experience, indeed. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5500633/Private-Thomas-Edmundson-buried-103-years-died-WWI.html Cheers, Tony
