    wow, this U-2 looks impressive:thumb:
    the contrast between black and the lines is great, this will be an eye-candy in every collection
    You´ve done a great job Paragon, and... it was your first step to do twin engined or bigger planes, hope the Canberra and the Vulcan will follow:idea:;-)

    About the MIGS: hmm, you nearly did them all, maybe the MIG-9, the first USSR jet, built about 1000 pieces, will complete it; maybe the Jak15 or 23 would be a great supplement

    have a great week-end

    Well, with one of the great American spy planes done, its time to move on to another, possibly better known than the U-2, and the fastest jet aircraft ever built: thats right, the SR-71.

    Yes, I know there are already plenty of free models of this plane out there, but I wanted one that was smaller and more simple. It should at least be pretty easy to design. Expect pictures of the prototype tonight, I feel good about this one. ;)

    Along with SR-71, could you also do the A-12 and SR-71B trainer?
    Also, I just finished your Lightning, I'll post pictures later

    I can definitely do the A-12, and probably the YF-12 too. I was thinking of doing the M-21 with D-21, but I can't really find any decent blueprints of it. As for the SR-71B, I've never seen that variant, but how different can it really be? The SR-71 was a two-seater anyway...

    No, the SR-71 is a two-seater. The second seat was not equipped for piloting though. The SR-71B has an elevated second cockpit (the two aren't attatched) for a pilot trainee, above where the second seat would be on the typical SR-71.

    So, expect the YF-12, A-12, M-21 with D-21 drone, SR-71, and SR-71B.

    Alright, next is the V-22 Osprey. I'm going to go ahead and build the M-21 with D-21 first, and maybe the SR-71 as well. In the meantime, has anyone else built the U-2 yet?

    Finished M-21 with D-21. The A-12 looks practically identical.

    50% of the U-2 is done, the single groups. Tomorrow I`ll finish it, and the day after I will send pictures...
    Thanks for your great work, Paragon

    Great job Paragon, I admire the speed in your designing, do you use 3-d views to build and "line" your models ?


    I have one for the list btw : f-5

    I'd love 2 build one in your designing style.
    Keep up the good work !

    (never mind the stupid question sign1 )
