    Umm, I thought MTK was kidding, with his usual sense of humor, but I agree, this is YOUR thread on your Talon. So, let "US" (me included) keep it on target.:confused:

    That is why I love PDO's lol

    Drawing instructions, and especially as good / detailed as yours Armorman must take just as much time as designing the model. :2x thumbs up:

    I used to not like PDO's, but, now that I know how to extract the pictures, the "instructional" aspect really does shine.

    Armorman's instructions are something I have not seen before, not having seen a lot, my opinion is what it is, but, it this method is not common, and is more intuitive than the .PDO method. IMHO.

    So at the risk of sounding ignorant (which I get used to after a while), is the Talon available for download yet?

    Not yet. I am working on the instructions. When finished, it will be available through ecardmodels.

    Update. detailed the nose gear tub. Interesting thing is that even if you're going to build it gear up. you still have to put in the tubs for rigidity.

    once this is all said and done, i will definitley build a scale rc version of this jet for sure.

    the movie story did suck, but hell the planes were badass.

    im a fan of the plane. and the papermodel creator. well worth the long wait.

    This model will surely be talked about for years! I'm very impressed with your instructions so far, AM! It may take a lot of work, but hang in there. These look very easy to follow and will make constructing a complex model like this much more manageable. :thumb:

    Wow! Even the instructions are awesome! Don't ever berate yourself for having high standards, A-Man. This is well worth the wait.

    OK, Had to change the instructions a bit. I have a question:

    Does the final pic on step 10 read clearly as to what I'm trying to get across?

    Quiz question:

    What am I telling you?

    The position of the seat between the two panels? Yes, but I might consider changing it's shade a wee bit, demonstrating it's resting place, and the return it to it's original shade signifying that step is finished, but then again I',m not very fast or astute. It works very well and by that time if some has not picked up on the methodology, it certainly would not be for lack of effort on your part! :)

    I know some pilots name their vehicles (I named my bulldozer "Meredith"). Perhaps you could name your Talon "Sistine"...Like the chapel. :)

    Masterpieces take time. This definitely falls into that category.
