 Heck, I'd actually like to get a good look before the paint goes on, always interesting to check out a nice build.

It's been primed a couple of times. Lots of sanding to do on this one.

Yes, and had to rebuild a few things that just weren't coming out right. Summer business slowed me down on it and right now I'm recovering from some surgery, but I'm thinking some color will be on it come spring.

I've lost some close focus in my eyes the last couple years so I'm just not seeing wood surface very well.

It's ready for basecoat and color. Weather here starting to get good enough to spray outside.
Jose Modesto has the original NATS winning F86 and I've asked him for some of the trim details on it, but I haven't heard back from him yet.

Closest club to me is the Woodland/Davis Aeromodlers, about an hour away. In my town, I'm a lone wolf.

 Same here, and if I haul a-- nonstop our club field is a 1:45 drive north (one way) from my driveway, up I-35 and all the way through Minneapolis. That drive is a great motivation killer.

I think you're right, but the Sabre in that pic is the original United based model.

Got basecoat white on it this morning. Hoping to start silver color coats this afternoon.

Edit: I was pretty heavy handed on the gun with the white. May wait a day or so on the silver.

 Way cool, looks great!

 I see you're using the blue masking and vinyl striping tapes, both are great and I use them a ton. I know you know your game, but if you haven't tried the yellow Frogtape find some and give it a try too, it's EXCELLENT stuff. You can kind of see through it which is handy in certain situations and it leaves a perfect edge on your paint lines. I usually find mine at the local Sherwin Williams store.

I'll check it out. There is a Sherwin Williams store fairly close by and I need more tape anyway.

 Don't waste your money on the green Frogtape though, it's crap for our purposes.

The Frog tape (the yellow stuff) is at Lowes and Ace.  I have not checked at Home Depot.

Good stuff.  Leaves a clean edge, paint does not seep beneath it, and it can be left on the surface for extended periods without leaving residue.

No, I won't. Already tried the green and was not impressed.

I use the 3M fine line masking tape quite a bit. The blue with orange print is best for a very fine line.

 Randy,

 By 3M fine line do you mean their blue vinyl stuff? If so I also use that a lot, always keeping the various widths in my "inventory". I use the 3M blue masking with the orange print a ton too, in all widths.

 For paint lines though, unless it's a task that requires my using the fine line vinyl, I always use the yellow Frogtape anymore. It's become my new favorite, even over the blue/orange masking. It seems slightly thinner (maybe?) than the blue/orange tape and I feel like it leaves an even better edge. The tackiness is also pretty much ideal, all in all it's very user friendly.
