    Just so everyone, including surfduke, these will most likely be available at www.mos95b.com/surfduke once he releases them (if he continues to want me to host this stuff for him, that is).

    I'm gonna have to actually make him a page for this stuff now instead of just a directory listing

    Yes! Yes!

    I want You to keep up the Hosting! Please!!

    You, and Mike V., are the real glue that binds these works together, (LOL)!

    I hope MOS realizes how much we appreciate that he hosts all of these wonderful models.

    Like Carl says, you make a great team of designer, instructor, and host.

    Thanks to all.

    Billy and All,

    Thank you for the pictures.

    Those pilots really had guts to try to "fly" a vehicle that has no wings.

    Can you imagine flying one from the top of a Saturn 1B? Talk about a thrill ride.

    The B-52?

    That may be a project that one of Our great Airplane designers should do. I have a full plate, (The more qualified Should take that on, (Not a novice project)). But a good one, (Open Source, (Not pay to build, (Is needed))), IMHO.

    Update

    I have uploaded the next preview, (For the record, (The final model will be published to John's Site, (This is just to show W.I.P.))).

    The Landing Gear, & Nose, need to be drawn before the paint work. I was wondering if the pilot seat, controls, & open windscreen should be done too?

    Have a great day, (I have a desktop computer to jumpstart),

    Carl

    What would be the chances of requesting a "simple" version and an advance version?

    In my mind, the simple version would be kind of FG style. Closed, printed only cockpit, for those of us who stricly want a display model. The advance version could be the open cockpit, clear glass, etc version for the folks that want to get every tiny little detail...

    Well Go With Mr. John's Idea!

    I will get it all finished up and painted this weekend. I have to get the instruction files for Skylab of the desktop, (Today). I have to go to the Cape in the morning.

    Hope the detail so far works for the model, (as You guys have invisioned it).
