    Soon. I'll post when they're available. Still waiting for some beta builders to finish and send me images, so I can fix any problems.

    Finished building two more versions. The first I thought was the CL-704, but was actually a joint Ryan/Lockheed project. The idea was for the large triangle to work like a helicopter's rotor for vertical takeoff, and then lock forward and act as a wign during supersonic flight. When the Harrier began production, there really wasn't much justification for the project anymore. The other is, as many of you should be able to figure out, an NF-104 astronaut trainer. I'm not sure if the markings on it are the same as the one Chuck Yeager obliterated.

    Hello,

    just to say i like your models and alway lingering around to get them as soon as possible ;-)

    And i like the F104 very much.
    Here in Germany its called the manned rocket, obvously due to the small wings......
    An other, sad, nickname is widowmaker, because its engine stalled often and most, if not at all, this leads to a crash.

    By the way could you provide a triangle-wing with the tips tilted ?

    As i see you not only want to make other paintings, you want make other derivates of the Starfighter i have some concepts, which other like the CL-704 never made into reality.

    * With double-cell
    * High altitude-scanner
    * with tow-tanks

    And there is the north-american eagle, which is a starfigher-Cell on wheels wich case for the land-speed-record, maybe you could contact the owner of this if you would allowed to make a north american eagle ? A nice paintinge....

    Nosports - I may just make some more variants, we'll see. I'm actually really getting into these F-104 models.

    I built one more version, the Starfighters Demo team scheme, with two-seat cockpit (the kit includes the option of single or two seat). When I was done, something felt a little wrong with it; the actual aircraft on the team have a high gloss paint job, and the flat ink on paper didn't feel right, so I decided to make it glossy. First I applied a thin layer of Elmers glue to the entire model with a paintbrush, to seal it. Once it was dry, I applied Future wax to the whole model, again with a paintbrush, to give it a nice shine. You can't really tell too well from the pictures though.

    I don't suggest repeating this without doing testing first. I used to print using an HP printer, and wherever glue got, the ink came off. I now use a Kodak, which uses a different ink that glue does not discolor or remove. If you have a Kodak printer, it should work for you too, but its always good to do a little testing on first.

    Anyway, I was going to wait for the beta builders on ecardmodels to send in their build reports of the model before release, but I'm tired of waiting, and having built seven different versions of the model myself, I think its time to put it out. Expect it up in the next few days.

    Oh, and here are some pictures:

    Well the problem is that the model was designed with a lot borrowed from Ojimak's F-15 model (since they're very similar aircraft in design). When I sent him the files to ask it it was ok for me to host them on my website, he told me no.

    This was done when I had a lot less skill as a designer; at the time, it was hard for me to generate a structure on my own, which was why I had to borrow from him.

    I could probably design a completely new MiG-31 now, that would even be a lot better than my previous model, and include "full" wings and a much cleaner texture, but for now, I'm a little busy with the Century line.

    Oh,that's okay.

    I can wait for your 'originally made by you' Mig-31 Foxhound.The textures that you made are really good.Ojimak's models are great but lack of 'uncolored' models.A few weeks ago,I used google image and I saw an image of the wing templete of ojimak's Mig-29 uncolored.

    I though I want to ask you something about your models but you've been busy with the Century line so maybe I'll ask later to avoid burdening you.......

    Anyway,Good luck on the Century line.

    Hey lincer556, do you know if there are any blueprints, or layouts such as that one of the Fenrir available for the XR-45 Cariburn?

    Hey lincer556, did you see on page 12 of this guys pictures that he is building a Fenrir out of tranparency? He has other models there too, they all seem to be nearly completed. I wonder if he has others, and where we can get them.

    I actually think I like that Cariburn more than the Fenrir (they're both really cool though). Ever since Sukhoi showed off the Su-47 I've sort of been enamoured with swept-forward wings.

    Yeah, I always liked them since the X-29 was revealed many years ago. Then I saw the Su-47 and again became thrilled with them.

    By the way Paragon, I just bought the F-104 X-planes pack off the ecardmodels website. I just love the X-27 and the CL-1200. Excellent job on those.
