very good to hear:mrgreen:
I would prefer the Mystere
Thanks! Nice build! Did you have any trouble with it?
Not Really. I've gotten quite a bit of Enjoyment out of building your models, thanks for sharing them with us!
Also, I think that the Super Guppy would also be an interesting subject.

I will bend on the Vatour direction, please Paragon
Your models are amazingly simple, yet good fliers and an excellent base for detailing.
I had lots of trouble with the A-10, mainly the quality of the printed image, quite blurred, so I am now going for the green version.
I am away for a week, so no new work until december.
Good luck with your Boeings.
Yeah, I tried to clean it up as best I could, but it didn't turn out as well as I'd have liked.
Anyway, I still haven't started on the next models yet, I think I'm going to wait until Monday, I need a little more of a break.
Thud and Mig-19
my latest builds, all witout any problem
Thanks! I really appreciate you posting those! I really like your builds too, I haven't built either of those yet myself (imagine that!), so its really interesting to see. I'm glad they turned out well.
We really need to have a special "Paragon models and builds" section on here... ^^
I think I might actually request one, now that I've released so many of them.
Meanwhile, I finally started on the Boeing 2707-200 last night. The relative lack of resource images dictates that I draw it by hand instead of using 3-views for it, but its also a pretty simple design. The 2707-300 will be even easier to design, considering that it doesn't have swing wings. The models will probably be about the same size as the SR-71 and variants, so not particularly large.
today I noticed my lack of 160g/m² paper, hmmm....
means no chance to build another plane, so I decided to do something, which works in 80g/m² paper: scale 1:144, and while the build of the MIG-19 in 1:60 was very enjoing, so I did it again; looks very good the small baby....
The MIG-15 in the dark version will be next.
Excuse my bad pics, the flash doesn`t work anymore, and so I`ve to use natural light.
Building was no problem, I cutted off the tabs of the fuselage, the rest was as equal
Wow, that MiG-19 in 1/144 looks excellent! Do you mind showing an image of the exhaust for us?
Ok, finally have some progress to show. After construction of the prototype I have found a few small problems that I need to iron out. The fuselage piece behind the nose needs to be a little smaller where it connects to the nose, the swing gears need an extra tooth to allow a full range of movement, the wings need a little extension at the root, and I'm seriously considering removing the tabs from the fuselage pieces, and replacing them with small cylinders that would connect each part, allowing for a more seamless fuselage. Normally I don't worry about that kind of issue, the fit with tabs is usually good enough, but because there will probably be very little detail in the "paint" job, the seams will be much more apparent on this model than on past models. It also means I'll probably have to play with the fit a little.
Currently, this model is only two sheets, the shortest swing-wing model I've designed. It is also, oddly enough, larger than a lot of the models I've designed. This probably has to do with the relative simplicity of the actual aircraft, and large use of cylinders and planes. The good news is that it makes for a simple model to build, and like I said, less to print.
I'm also considering a larger scale model of it, though I doubt it would be any more complex, and I'm not so confident that my models would hold up to much scrutiny at a larger scale. I probably won't make one unless someone specifically asks for it.
The 2707-300 should be slightly easier to design than this one, because I can use some parts of this model, and because it doesn't have swing-wings.
im not familiar with this aircraft, can you give a little background on it?
I hope, that is, what you meant
btw: that Boeing is very impressive:thumb:
Edi: Thats exactly what I mean, thank you!
Nothing: The Boeing 2707-200 was one of the later concepts for a Boeing supersonic airliner that never went into production, because supersonic aircraft were simply too expensive. It would have had a similar speed and greater passenger capacity when compared to the Concord. An even later concept was the Boeing 2707-300, which lost the swing-wings, and was scaled down a little. Here's what Wikipedia has to say about it:
Boeing 2707 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Boeing 2707-300 Super Sonic Transport
I wish you would consider designing the proposed Boeing 2707-300 SST airliner (the later design, without the swing-wing), in the blue/white PanAm airline colors. Preferrably with complete landing gear and wheel wells?
How about 1:144 scale? Then it could be displayed alongside the current Concorde models by Ralph Currell and Erik te Groen. And the Tupolev 144. That would be nice.
I am hoping for the best,
thanks paragon. very interesting. youve done a good jobwith that.looks good.
Consider it requested (if you haven't already )
Will get back to you on this one when I hear more. In the mean time, keep up the great work. :thumb:
Hi Paragon, once you start building military jets again, have you thought of building an F5 Freedom Fighter?
I vote one for the F5A.!
