1/48 Scale Avon Sabre Conv with Decals Returns

Postby Redroo » Sat Nov 29, 2014 2:38 pm

We are pretty excited this week because we have just re-introduced one of our all time favorite conversions. The 1/48 scale Avon Sabre conversion has returned to the fold. We have been able to get a new decal sheet that features most of the original subjects that were included when the conversion was first released. This conversion has been our most successful product to date, with over 800 sets being sold world wide. Now, here is a chance for all those who may have missed out on the original release, or just want to get their hands on another copy, to help fill the gap in their RAAF collection.
The conversion features an injection moulded replacement fuselage that can be used with either the Academy or Hasegawa 1/48 scale F-86 kits. Included in the conversion is a highly detailed decal sheet which includes dozens of those wonderful stencils the RAAF Avon Sabre was renowned for! The instruction sheet is extensive to say the least.
This conversion is suitable for intermediate and advanced modellers as it requires some fitting, sanding and filling skills. With care and patience an outstanding result can be achieved.
You can find more information about the conversion here:

We also have recently introduced our new Project Ingara Conversion in 1/72 scale. We have begun packing the next release of our three popular Martin Mariner conversions and we expect these to be released in the New Year.

What's on the decal sheet? From what I can see on the RedRoo page its one 3 squadron and two Malaysian schemes. Will there be more?

The decal sheet features the following aircraft:
A94-971, 3 Sqn RAAF
A94-901, 76 Sqn RAAF
A94-368, 3 Sqn RAAF
FM1369, 11 Sqn RMAF
FM1983, 11 Sqn RMAF

You may be able to mix and match individual serials to cover additional aircraft.

PS - there was a slight glitch with one of the images this morning so I had to re-set the link

Excellent! I'd been hunting online, as I want to build the TAM/RAAFM example, but EVERYWHERE was sold out. Fantastic news!
