    Very nice! One day I really must spend some money and buy a real kit instead of just free web downloads. Yet another addiction to deal with! :twisted: Can you tell us how you made the seats?

    Cockpit fuselage...............

    Hi folks,

    as you see I´m not fully satisfied. There are some missfits and the origin canopy part was terrible. So I tried a selfmade solution.........

    so I won´t try to improve it because that makes often more mistakes..........

    I think that F-15 might be the ultimate one you are looking for. I am going to start it in a couple of weeks.

    fluthecrank, how much trouble would it be to ask for you to post your pics attached to a post vs hosted? I am currently unable to see any images except those that are attached to posts (long story) and I'm interested in this kit.

    Thanks either way

    Hi folks,

    the Mi 17 is still in my desk too. I will relaunch the report perhaps in January.
    If somebody likes I can send the pics by e-mail.
