    Muchas gracias a mi amigo I waited a little longer I was 43 when I made my first sabre. We share the same birth year and I used to be involved with aircraft too though not as skilled as yourself.

    I agree, Very smooth and clean work

    When you get around to working again, you'll need 2 extra grips!

    Nice build ... and all original hand made ... fabulous. As for grips you could always upgrade with T-tracks from wannawanga.com
