    I seem to remember once a long time ago, while cruising around the Trotskiy site, stumbling across some pics of a blue F-14 that appeared to be a Trotskiy design, but I have not been able to re-locate it. Anybody know if there is such a plane?

    Howdy Furman,

    Ok, I dont know about a trotskiy F 14 Tomcat, but I do have the link to a nice one if you would like it.

    http://www.saturn.dti.ne.jp/~eastern/pcraft/main.html#f14a

    Below is a photo of the completed model from the website:

    This model hasnt been out long, maybe several months at most.

    I hope this quenches your thirst for a tomcat. Have a good day,

    Greg aka GEEDUBBYA (GW)

    Hi All,
    Mr. Trotskiy has pulled all his downloads. He is upset that someone for another group has been trying to make an automatic download program
    to get his models and fears this may cause problems to his site.

    Speaking of Vampires, there's one sitting on the ramp at the airport that I fly out of. If anyone really wanted some pics I could probably accomodate you.

    Mr Trotskiy's site seems to have disappeared altogether now :-( Does anyone know of the status of his models, or has he perhaps run out of patience /generosity?

    Hope to see him back. His models make great toys when printed on thick card. A real nice intro for our younger ones...

    Trotsky Rocks!

    I have a properly scaled a F-190d that fits on two sheets of cardstock. I really need to show off my additions. Maybe a catapult powered Trotskiy?

    Maybe after I finish the SR-71

    Howdy all and specifically Rick,

    I saw where Rick was looking forward to the Vampire and thought that since the "Trotskiy site" was not allowing downloads, Maybe I could do the next best thing and provide you with a link to another free downloadable Vampire model.
    You can find it at this link : http://xoomer.virgilio.it/nmndem/aer14b.html

    Now the site is in Italian, but have no fear, here is the link to the google translation version of the page: http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fxoomer.virgilio.it%2Fnmndem%2Faer14b.html&langpair=it%7Cen&hl=en&safe=off&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&prev=%2Flanguage_tools . Hope this "tides you over until Mr. Trotskiys resumes allowing downloads.

    Simply save the .jpeg images of parts to build the model. Instructions are also provided this way.

    Have a good day,

    Greg aka GEEDUBBYA (GW)

    I'll send them to you as soon as I am on line for real! I am borrowing a comp for a few days but I've got the 1 16 and 109 as well as a ton of others. What we really need is a shareware program that will let us open and scale the pdfs

    actually... although VERY time consuming, scaling CAN be done in MS word. just open and copy the pdf then paste into Word. from that point use the ruler along the top to adjust it. use CutePDFWriter to 'print' it as a pdf. hope some of that helps! i just figured out how to do it ;-)
