Once the cockpit was painted, the rest went together pretty quick and you soon have something looking like an Impala. The nose cap took a bit of blending in (there is an option for an open avionics bay) and some blending between the lower fuselage and wing. I also cut the squared off 30mm barrels for the "Sabrina" gun pods and replaced them with drilled out rod.







A few spots of finish sanding to do and we should be ready for the paint shop.

Cheers,
Rich

Hey Rich Did you know this plane was known as the amputator If long guys tried to eject theyr legs would get amputated. This caused an whole generation of Fighter pilots to be quite short in the SAAF as they all had to do theyr jet conversions on the Imp.

I hadn't heard about that.

We had a USAF exchange pilot at AETE that had the same ejection problem with the aircraft we were operating at the time, CF-104, CF-5, CT-133 and CT-114. He had flown F-105's and F-4's before he became a test pilot. He also couldn't drive a car for more than 30 minutes because it was too boring.

Cheers,
Rich
