    Apparently it was a limited time freebie when you bought the Xbox game. Must have been in Japan only because I didn't get one :wink:

    ^ Shoot! That card model of the Hughes Devastator looks like it'd be a lot of fun to build and display.

    OK...here's what's been going on....I emailed the following to the creator:

    >>Hello,
    >>
    >>You do some amazing work! I was wondering if you could please send me a copy
    >>of the Crimson Skies paper model plane that you created. I live in the
    >>United States and I do not think that your work will ever be released here

    >>
    >>Thank you for your time.
    >>
    >>

    And he responded thusly:

    Dear Bill Perry.

    Thank you for mail.
    What you say is right.
    Crimson Skies paper model is a GIFT.
    It cannot obtain, if software is not purchased.
    And probably, it will be difficult for you to receive the software for Japan.

    If possible, please mail to Microsoft.
    If your opinion obtains many approval, it may be able to receive also in the United States.

    Regards.

    I then contacted the U.S. xbox division and totally confused them. They said to direct my questions to xbox Japan, and I am currently waiting for a response.

    I got a response this morning from Xbox Japan:

    Dear Mr. Bill,

    Thank you for enjoying Xbox.

    This paper craft is only for those who will buy crimson skies as initial shipping in Japan.
    You can see its detail the below URL.
    http://xboxplaytogether.net/games/crimsonskies/index.html

    I am not sure this does work for you.
    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Best regards,

    Xbox customer support


    I wish that they'd make it available to those of us who are outside Japan....

    the second one down in your link yes I know its not the right one but is close the x-gull wing one thats also a canard with the fighting tigers nose ... if it was done in red baron red with some skull and cross bones with a few nice guns mounted would be pretty close

    I think that it was what the builder was going for. If I'm not mistaken, he used a FG Warhawk and 2 sets of FG corsair wings.

    Now this site is not mine <g> but I do want to see built models from it <g>
    sorry just had to ... I wont do that again ... Promise I won't ...

    Agreed! Ah well, I guess I'll just have to add it to my list of reasons not to like Microsoft. ;) :lol:

    Thanks for looking into the matter, Armorman!

    I bet the XP-55 would be a great canidate for a kit bash with a corsair to make a crimson skie model

    link is gone sooo

    thats the XP-55 in Texman's folder and the corsair would give the gull wings needed ...... a good recolor and voila a crimson skies avenger? or a close approximity of one
