    First off, thank you for at least looking in out of interest or for those that can be of assistance. :mrgreen:

    I am currently serving on Active Duty for the United States Air Force, Edwards Air Force Base in California where a lot of flight test happens and I am very interested (after a two year hiatus) in getting back to the hobby.

    I am asking anyone for any information or links to any of the aircraft below since I usually see them on base here and I think it would just go well with the theme here to have models commemorating my duty assignment. I am also looking for models with a good bit of detail.

    The list includes:

    A-10 Thunderbolt

    B-52 - preferrably the B-52H in the current grey paint scheme

    F-16 - C or D model is fine although I primary work with the D

    F-22

    F-35A

    RQ-4 Global Hawk

    SR-71 Blackbird

    U-2 Dragon Lady

    XP-59A - preferrably in the old USAAF green or bare metal silver

    That concludes the list for now and I appreciate anybody stopping in and helping out in any way possible. Thanks!

    If you want detail, then Fiddler's Green would be a waste of time. They are simplistic models, which are nice, but would not quality as particularly accurate or detailed.

    Ecardmodels has a pretty wide selection and the owner, Chris Gutzmer is a member here, I'm sure he would be happy to help you.

    Yeah, I have known of fiddlersgreen and needless to say I don't look there much for any models. If you can turn Chris's attention to this thread, that would be great!

    Resizable 1-200 scale aircraft by Chiawatkom

    Do an Advanced Search at http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/ for user name "chiawatkom".

    All his designs are:
    *1-200 scale
    *PDFs are all vector (easily scalable)
    *No instructions (this is a challenge)
    *Most designs are flyable (see his YouTube videos of them in the air)

    Two thread examples:
