    announce1I have really GREAT NEWS. All of the Thunder Fighter expantion packet are being hosted on Martin Saenger's website: http://www.paperaviation.de/Science-Fiction/science-fiction.html

    I would like to thank Martin Saenger for approving and hosting expantion packets for us.

    It worked without bakshish! (I'm broke anyway; Rhaven challenged me to a Pyramid Game. How for Sagan's sake could I have accepted that?!?:p:mrgreen::p)

    Some words from Martin:

    "Hallo Marcell,

    wow, das ist ja klasse! Da steckt eine Menge Arbeit, das weiß ich nur zu gut.

    Klar, gerne werde ich die Dateien mit in meine Webseite integrieren. ...


    Gruß
    Martin"


    Martin appreciates the hard work that went into creating all these models. Thank you, Martin! You are great indeed! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    announce1 To all fans: Please don't crash his site; I'm sure the models will stay there for quite some time!

    I have also agiven him a sneak peak at the RMQ Viper. I hope he likes her when she is ready! CU! :wave:

    announce1 Just a reminder to all who are going to build this models. (With the exception of the DJ-TF) You will need to download the original model, because the MK-III (RETRO and ADVANCE), HBB-TF, and QUAD packets are just expansion packets!!!

    Yes, you do need to download the original model and what ever expantion packet you wish to build the model that you want.

    Hi, fellas! :twisted:

    I am revising the cockpit interiors right now. I think we might release both the 2- and the 4-seater cockpits in one file. So we could combine the assembly instructions and save space.

    BTW, has anybody of you built a custom TF yet? Please post some pics, RB and I are curious to see it! CU! :wave:

    I just finished moving (which is a task that I really hate).wall1wall1wall1
    In my off time though, I was able to finish the DJ-TF and the HBB-TF. I am also rebuilding the MK-III RETRO. I am very sorry that I am not posting photos now, but I do not have internet at home yet, so I have to use the library computer and I do not see any USB ports on the tower.wall1 So as soon as I am able to get internet in my home, I will post photos.

    Like Revell-fan said, we would really like to see all of your custom creations .

    I really like the model and the thread and if I could I would use smaller script, because I think the work speaks for itself without someone, or anyone for that matter shouting about it. WHAT DO YOU THINK!?!?!?!

    I have finished all of the birds (all were very easy to build.) and will be posting photos soon.
    I also made a stand that will hold two models (one on top of the other). I wll include photos of it as well.

    BTW, has anyone started on any of the models yet? If so, please post photos of your work.
