Whats happening with all the re-paints? There have been a lot of really good looking repaints on here, and I haven't heard anything about them being in the folder yet. Not to be pushy or anything, but some of those look great!

Kudos to all your hard work!

Life got in the way, but I just finished up the redraw on the Me-163. I decided not to make it as huge as previously shown because:

A: I wanted a one piece wing, and that kinda limited the size.

B: At the scale I had it, I would have had to design all kinds of fiddly bits so it would look right i.e air scoops, bumpers, wing skids...I hate fiddly bits.

C: It just didn't look right at that size. At it's present scale, it should fit nicely with the size of new models being released.

Once Chip approves the b&w, I'll get started on those repaints.

I've got a Cessna 172 repaint that I need to re-submit. It got lost in the shuffle of the site change. Once I get another helo repaint done for Ecardmodels, I'll probabyl work on a P-80 repaint

willy, what chopper are you working on? I just got Marek's F4U-1D (1/33) from ecardmodels, and I really like. Except for the lack of good instructions, its really nice

i've been working on a repaint of the Forest Shining Bell 206L Long Ranger for Ecardmodels. It's been almost a year unfortunately. it's a really difficult repaint. I should wrap it up over Christmas though.

Some do, but they are pretty simple. Many of them are older kits (5 years or more). I haven't done any of his stuff yet. I have a couple of Nobi's and Ken West's planes in the build pile though.

Cool stuff, one thing, I can't remember, are we supposed to have a problem with posting other companies models in the "Look what I've built" section?
