    Hey, Guys! I've been severely out of the loop lately, and put waaay behind my design schedule. I had a death in the immediate family in December, and also doing aircraft transition training (aside from working my normal 90 hr work week). But things are starting to settle down again. The Guardian should be done in about a week, and the SeaSprite to follow a few weeks after. The next project is both of the Dehavilland SeaHornet aircraft, the F.20 and F.21 variants. Here are some pics of the CG development of both aircraft. Thanks for being so patient and supportive of Skyline Paper Models!

    She should be ready in about 6 weeks.

    Sorry to hear about the death in the family............. models can wait..........

    Your stuff it too good for us to worry you............. just know that there is at least one guy that will wait patiently for the models he loves to build!

    Take your time............ designer burn out is something that we do not want you to see:grin:

    ummmmmmm.......... you know NO ONE has done a Skyknight:grin:

    I've actually gathered a wealth of resources on the SkyKnight, and definitely plan on doing one. I won't touch it, though untill I complete an A-3 Skywarrior. That airplane is the very reason I started designing.

    My wife told me if I buy any more models, she's gonna leave. Gee, I'm going to miss her. Can't wait for these to become available.
