Also a preview of something that may be of interest to you from my end:
The new project looks good, one of my favourite planes. I have already built three. It looks like a fourth in on the horizon.

SIPHON, really nice builds.

Thanks Brent


I’ve started on the -24 and the fit is good. I broke the wing hinges, so I want everyone’s opinion: swept or out for the wing position

I always think of the fencer with its wings out personally, but the decision is yours

I'm like that with models of any swing-wing jet. I would think if it's sitting on it's wheels the wings would be extended anyway. There are exceptions to this of course- like the need to minimize space on a carrier.....

Here they are

Ätherwellen’s F-16c Ghost
PE’s Su-24 recolor by TigerTony100
PE’s Su-25UTG

I love the paint scheme on the ghost F-16, but it has some minor flaws. It’s still one of if not my favorites! I also salvaged a canopy and nozzle from another F-16 so this one could match gradient wise. The Su-24 was a wonderful build, but the LG got tricky for me. The Su-25UTG was a breeze, enough said. These are all wonderful models, and I’d happily recommend these to any 1/100 or /200 fan.

Thanks Rata

I have a question for the general public-

Is there a way to optimize print quality using Adobe reader, and an Epson eco-tank printer? I printed a couple aircraft last year on the same printer, using a high quality option and that seems to have disappeared. I now own said printer and the only way I can get the quality is to use Prem. Matte, but that setting messes up fine details. I could use some help in this area...

Edit: When I can access the templates, I'll show the difference.

Yes indeed there is a way to improve print quality on Adobe Reader. First of all you must to perform a Print Test and clean printer heads. Second try the Photographic option. It´s only matter of settings on your printer.

Thanks for that tip! So print as photo option??

I’m pretty sure that is under advanced settings somewhere…
