A scale pilot enclosure is essential, and BVM's Sabre cockpit kit supplies all of the parts, instructions, and techniques to complete this most important task.
BVM kits are famous for the superior quality of the epoxy glass parts. The Sabres fuselage, fin, stabs, access hatches and ducting are hand crafted with the right amount of fiberglass, Carbon Fiber and Kevlar in just the right places to provide maximum service strength at minimum weight. The scale panel lines are molded into the gray surface coat making the finishing process much easier. Factory installed Carbon Fiber rods in the aft fuse section provide perfect alignment of the aft-to-forward fuse assembly.
BVM's in-house CNC laser and router centers allow us to supply the ultimate design and material for these all important structural components. Laminates of pure Carbon Fiber, Carbon Fiber and end-grain balsa and aircraft plywood are strategically placed in the model for the best strength-to-weight mountings for the wings, tails, landing gear and radio control components.
An additional fullsize wing drawing gives accurate location of the panel lines and BVM's easy technique for applying them to the finished wing.
The built-up wing panels are strong, light and repairable. The landing gear is mounted in a box-like structure of machined carbon fiber ribs and spars. The one piece balsa wing skins are laser cut for a perfect fit. Allow 4-5 evenings of model work to assemble both wing panels.
The BVM manufactured undercarriage was designed solely for the Sabre Jet. Our
many years of experience in this field allow us to design, flight test and build
a truly durable and scale functioning landing gear system.
Match molded of Carbon Fiber, epoxy glass, and vacuum formed inner skins, the nose and main gear doors are properly sequenced and air operated. Machined Carbon Fiber hinges allow for true-to-scale operation.
Kevlar fuel cells hold 4.6 litres of fuel providing over 12 minutes of flight time. The Sabre's fuel system comes complete with the Kevlar cells, all necessary hardware and a U.A.T. Good design, positions the fuel such that there is no "pitch trim" change during the flight.
Start the engine, perform certain preflight checks, then, on taxi-out to the
runway, turn a knob on your transmitter and watch the canopy close and lock.
Fighter Bombers of this era had underwing pylons to carry extra fuel to get them to the combat zone and engage in air-to-air or air-to-ground attacks. These highly detailed epoxy glass molded options allow you to fully adorn the Sabre Jet.
With the parts made for you as shown, this functional feature is very easy to install in your Sabre. The Carbon Fiber molded skins have the critical hinge pivot formers factory installed. Vacuum formed inner skins, fuse pockets, cylinders and hardware complete this option.
This Jet Cradle is designed specifically to ease the assembly, storing and transport of the BVM F-86F.

aft section is removed.

Large Fuel Cell
There has been one case where the brass
tube that transfers fuel through a hole in the fuel cell baffle experienced
a razor saw-like cut. The engine flamed out because the remaining fuel below
the tube was unusable.
now supplies Stainless Steel tubes with the large baffled fuel cells i.e., KingCat,
F-100, F-4, Rafale, F-86 (80"). Retrofit parts are available. Ask for part

of the aileron as necessary to fit adjacent to the flap and flush with the tip
