    Thanks for the reminder - there are some of these I haven't even used yet! :lol:

    Anyways - they are 'mostly' to scale, except maybe the Red Top and Firestreak...

    Enjoy! :D

    Neat.

    I would have thought that you would have "modularized" various aux tanks or even weapon sighting systems like the sidewinder. And nothing from the 50s, 60s or 70s?

    You have more work to do... :)

    You said it...

    The Red Top and Firestreak are 60's, but there are a hell of a lot more to make from around then - I have trouble finding good scale drawings too... :|

    I bet. I like the 60s and 70s armaments. You should see if you can find one that makes use of the grid fins that the Russians dreamed up. They look so retro. Would look great on your MiG-25. Though I don't know if the -25 is realistically equipped with those types.

    Have you done an Su-19? That would be a great one. Here are some of my suggestions:

    Su-7
    Su-25 Frogfoot
    Mirage F.1
    Saab Viggen
    IAF Kfir
    A-5 Vigilante with 4 underwing tanks :cool:
    SEPECAT Jaguar
    Su-15 Flagon :cool:

    I new a P-3 driver who was intercepted numerous times off the easter coast of Russia by Su-15s. He had a great picture of two off his starboard wing. Looked just like our cold war intercepts, but just the reverse.

    Can I assume in order of priority..top to bottom? :cool:

    Me like.

    Sukhoi Su-15 is an interesting airframe. Sukhoi made versions that were V/STOL for that F-104 like airframe. You can really tell where the Su-27 lineage came from. Can you imagine a 240+mph landing speed? Jesus that's like some of the US X-series lifting bodies!

    Yes, to to bottom - I have added a P-38 Lightning since yesterday :)

    I still want to shuffle the order slightly...

    Looks good to me. Are multiengine bombers and transports too labor intensive? I see the Vulcan and Lanc in their.

    I made a full list of everything: http://www.altgame.net/aircraft/The_List_Progress.htm

    This will change, but it is something to focus on :)

    Multi-engines can be difficult, but they are nothing on things that have multiple missile rails and stores - just doing all the shadows, then changing them for each different-shaped missile or drop tank is pretty trying... :|
