    I don't understand what UMC (Universal Model Creator and Converter) has to do with this? I made my models using Photoshop, they can be viewed in Adobe Reader.

    All I can really provide is this link: Gulf Knight's Air Base :: Download

    Anyone have ideas?

    The Su-7 and Su-9 prototypes are finished. I will begin coloring them and the Su-22.

    What an odd coincidence! I actually got a little bored with the Su-17/MiG-19 and started on the MiG-25/31.

    Ohhh, you said MiG-15/17 first. No worries, those should be easy, they're cigar shaped. The MiG-25/31 will be slightly more difficult since they have irregular shapes, and I don't know how to use modelling programs. Ojimak's F-15 will probably provide some useful insight.

    Another Sukhoi, Stormeagle? You all aren't getting sick of the Russian planes? :p

    I'd be glad to do the plane you've posted Dragos, but I need to know what it is so I can get some more reference images.

    Anyway, I can churn out the parts for models pretty quickly, the issue then becomes building and documenting for instructions. Those of you who have downloaded the models I've designed so far may have noticed the instructions getting steadily less helpful...sorry. If anyone would like to help I would appreciate it.

    The MiG-31 "Firefox" is:
    1 - Already available as a free cardmodel
    2 - Not a real fighter. I am currently working on the MiG-31 "Foxhound" wich is an upgraded version of the MiG-25 "Foxbat".

    Mikoyan MiG-31 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you want a copy of the Firefox, you can PM me with your e-mail. Finding the model is difficult, its only a beta.

    Alright, since I have two votes to do the MiG-15/17 next, I will, though I went ahead and designed the MiG-31 already. I built the prototype this morning, and got it nearly perfect on the first try. I also tested its flight capabilities, and it glided like a dream, I think it has the most stable flight of any of the models I've designed so far. The F-25 flew well, and the F-86 did alright. The MiG-21 and similar Sukhois flew pretty much like darts, not so much like planes.

    MiG-15/17 prototype finished. MiG-19 and Su-17 prototypes are pretty much done as well, and of course the MiG-31 is finished. I guess I should color them?

    I finished the MiG-15/17 kit, and have made three different color schemes, one normal, one red aerobatic team jet, and one dark MiG. The MiG-17 ventral fin is included, add it to make a MiG-17, or leave it off to make a MiG-15.

    No instructions yet. Its not very difficult to build, so the adventurous can give it a shot as soon as they like. For the rest of you, the instructions should be done tomorrow.

    Version 1: Silver
    Version 2: Red
    Version 3: Dark

    Edit: Added a fourth file called "Mini MiGs". This is a single-page PDF of all three variants scaled down. I'm not sure what scale that puts them in, but I think it might be around 1/144. We'll see.
