    The IAR-99 ?!?! :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

    Mig-23/28 ???? Did you mean Mig-23/27 ? Because Mig-28 is in fact a repainted F-5 E Tiger II for the movie "Top Gun"

    Incredible designs

    I have to admit Paragon that your models are first class and you have such skill to bake them out so quickly that lets me breathless. I will have to try your style and have a go on a Mirage 5. We will see what comes out of it.

    In the mean time, MiG 31 was used only by USSR, but MiG-25 wore also Lybian, Egyptian, Irak and Indian liveries, and I'm not sure about Cuba and Angola.

    Could I modify your Su-22 to make it Peruvian?

    I also believe that Cuba and Angola haven't use Mig-25 but there where other contries like Algeria, Bulgaria, Egypt , Syria,Turkmenistan and Ukraine

    Paragon Active Member're right, I did mean MiG-27. Panzerbeto, go ahead and modify my models however you want, thats why I included the white version.

    I figured you'd ask for the IAR-99 Dragos ;) I feel like I could use a few more images though, especially isometric line-drawings.

    I also remember from before that the A-10 had two votes, so it may be next. I'll worry about that when the X-Su-17, MiG-19, 25, and 31 are done.

    I added the Su-25, F-100, F-105, and F-111 to the list. The X-Su-17 is pretty much finished, as is the MiG-19. The MiG-31 is also ready, and the MiG-25 just needs to be colored. None of them have any instructions yet, though the basic parts of the X-Su-17 and the MiG-19 are so similar to that of the MiG-15/17 that you really could use the same instructions. I'm also not going to release the MiG-25/31 until I've heard back from Ojimak, because I relied heavily on his F-15. I'm certain he'll be fine with it, but I'd rather make sure just in case.

    I'm also going to build Ojimak's Alpha-A, and evaluate the parts and how I could create an IAR-99 based on them. I'll probably begin work on the A-10 at the same time, which should actually be a pretty simple model to design.

    I was going to give the edvice to use the Alpha as a base for the IAR :thumb:

    Hello Paragon,
    Thank you for the IAR-99!!!
    The model doesn't need instructions because is easy to build.

    I've come to regret posting that kit without having built it first, there are quite a few kinks that need to be worked out. I'd suggest you wait until I've done so before trying to build it yourself, sorry. Just give me an hour or two.

    New version uploaded. Same link.

    Also, the V-22 Osprey just made it onto my list. A search of the forums turned up only one model that I could find of this potentially useful aircraft (though in its current manifestation, somewhat lackluster). The rotors will spin and tilt, and I will probably include the nose mounted gun the aircraft should (but doesn't) have.

    Began work on the A-10. MiG-25/31 is finished, but instructions are almost necessary for it, so I have to build it and take pictures before release.

    The list is now down to 13 (with the IAR-99 done and A-10 in the works). The English Electric Lightning is sort of catching my eye right now for many reasons, not the least of which being the ease with which I could make it using parts from my MiG-21. The FJ-1, 2, 3, and 4 also offer easy design considering their similarity to the F-86 Saber. The J-10 could be done pretty quickly using Ojimak's F-16 or F-2 as a base (I've actually already kitbashed one with his F-2), and the Tornado is simply cool, though I would have to design the swing-wing gear for it. I've decided not to use the method I tried with the Su-22 for any more swing wings and stick with the simple cog-gears that I used for the F-25

    I was also thinking of releasing a swing-wing conversion for Ojimak's F-14, but I'll definitely need his permission before doing that.

    But anything is game when it comes down to it. What would you all like next when I finish the A-10 (which should be done tomorrow or Sunday)?

    1 - English Electric Lightning
    2 - Panavia Tornado
    3 - FJ-1, 2, 3, and 4
    4 - MiG-23/27
    5 - Su-15
    6 - L-39/59/139/159 (just for you Paladin)
    7 - Sepecat Jaguar
    8 - J-37 Draken
    9 - J-10 Chengdu
    10 - Su-25
    11 - F-100
    12 - F-105
    13 - F-111
    14 - YA-9
    15 - YF-23
    16 - X-29
    17 - X-32 (With and without horizontal stabilizers)

    Wow, you're really on a roll! Thanks for making these all available to us :mrgreen:
    From the list you gave I would like to see the Jaguar and the F-111. Not many of those around in easy to build form :twisted:

    Thanks again,

    Updated the list to include four great X-planes (ok, so two of them are actually "Y" planes).

    I also had a list of fantasy and prototype aircraft somewhere else on this forum that I wanted to see turned into cardmodels. Since I've begun making new models myself, I figured I'd try to make them as well. The only issue is that I need more information for some of them, which is not easy when I don't know the name of a few. I'll post the pictures for you all to see, and if any of you know any more about them, or can find more resources online that I missed, let me know.

    I have to admit that had not seen the "Stealth" black thing before, and can't imagine anything different from a new chinese project.

    On the other hand, I can identify several of the "Japanese" planes in this picture:

    They have been in some cases heavily manipulated on the Photoshop program.
    Left row= 1. no idea, 2. SAAB Griphen, 3. Eurofighter, 4. MiG 21 Lancer (Rumanian version updated by Israel), 5. another drawing board creation.

    Right row= 1. funny picture of the dry area left by an F-22 Raptor after a mild rain, 2. F-16 (I think Mitsubishi builds those in Japan under a different name) 3. F-22 Raptor, 4. Kawasaki? Motorcicle with F-16 shape (it seems they even have ground acrobatic teams in japan equiped with this sort of "planes" for demonstrations in special ocassions), 5. F-18D.

    *Number 2 and 4 in the right row are the only real Japanese ones.

    By the way, Paragon, chech this page that could give you some cool versions for F-111 and YF-23!!:

    I would vote for the Jaguar and the Su-25.

    I know all of the "real" planes, the ones I'm really interested in are the "non-existant" ones, the first and last in the left column. I think the first one is the "Mitsubishi FS-X", which you can apparently see two of parked on the tarmac in one of those other links. I've found a few more images of it, but nothing I'd really feel comfortable making a good model from.

    The black stealth one is called something like the "ADF" or something. There's actually a fair amount of info on it out there.

    Thank you for the F-111 and YF-23 resources though!

    I think I may have found one of those fighters I was trying to identify, which curiously was while looking for information about the new Russian stealth project (PAK FA, T-50, Su-50, whatever you want to call it). I may do that one as well, if I can decide on which concept looks most like the possible final product.

    Anyway, I think the fighter I was interested in before was the Chinese J-XX, and of course that means its on my list now. It comes mostly down to a twin engine version of the J-10 that I'm going to release as the J-12, and a very similar apparently stealth aircraft that I will release either as the J-XX or the J-13. In all likelyhood, these models will not be completely accurate to the actual aircraft (especially if they're not in a finalized state yet), but they should look really cool!

    Here are some of the new resources I've found:

    Sorry for the double-post, couldn't seem to add this to the previous there a text limit?

    Obviously there are a lot of discrepancies between these resources, but the general shape seems to be nailed down. Whether its real or not, I have enough images to make a decent model (the bottom will be tricky, not enough images of it).

    In other news, the A-10 model is done. All I have to do now is color it. Instructions of course might be necessary. I'd really appreciate some help with that, if any of you are interested. Beta-builders who can take pictures of each step of construction would be valuable.

    A-10 is finished, the White and Grey versions are available in the downloads section. I can't upload the Green version for some reason. No instructions yet, though as always, it should be a pretty easy model to build.

    Also, I got carried away with that J-XX, and went ahead and designed a model of it. Right now its a little small, the wings don't fit as well as possible, though I'll probably just make it a 3-page model. Then of course I have to color it as well.

    I've been optimizing and uploading all of my files to the download section here. Not all are up yet, but they will be eventually.
