    I have already contacted Martin. He approves my little project and will get a copy of the mod files as soon as they are ready. I think that the mods will be added as extras available on zealot or paperaviation or both. But I have to finish some other projects first (Colonial One & Colonial Blaster; and the Landram wants to be finished, too!). All this may take a while, so please be patient. I`ll post updates asap. CU! :wave:

    Thank you for the words of kindness.
    My mom liked Gil Gerard as well as Michael Ansera. She had the hots for both of them.;););)
    I of course had the HOTS for Erin Gray!!!:twisted::twisted::twisted:

    Any new updates? Not trying to rush, but I am just curious, that is all.

    Tomorrow, I will be starting on the scratch build of the MK-IV Thunder FIghter.

    Good luck!

    Needed some time to work on the Blaster and the Landram. Once they are finished, I'll turn to the Thunderfighter again.

    CU! :wave:

    I have desided to put the MK-IV on the back burner for awhile now. I am having too many problems with the design ov the engines. I am still designing everything the "OLD SCHOOL" way with pencil, ruler and paper. THis project has reminded me of an old saying, "What works and looks good in 2-D, does not always work and lood good in 3-D."

    For now, I have desided to put all of my efforts in the designing of the MK-III parts and help Ravell-fan with his parts for the other Thunder Fighters.

    Your build is fantastic. I'm over half-way finished with mine but having trouble getting the two front cones and all the blasters built in and curled properly... any tips?

    Normally, I will roll the gun parts around a thin sewing needle ir very thin hat pit.
    If you do not want to go through the work, you can always cheat and use a toothpick and cut it to the size you need, then paint it to match the part.

    Also, you can start a build thread to show off your work in progress. It will make it easier to where you are having problems and people are able to help you better.

    Please start a thread and post photos. We would all like to see your work.

    Just to let you know, there will be a revision of both cockpit interiors, which are more detailed and closer to being canon.
