Ok, I have to admit that I really didnt think of it as being that important until my son was assigned to VFA-87 this summer but we really need to have an F-18.

I can't design them but if any of you who can are willing to do the design work I will do my best to put some cool paint schemes into the pipeline.

Most def. we also need some jet redraws i.e. F-16, F-15 (E?) and a few modern helis? Like the seahawk?

Lets hope that the new Mig-21 does so well in sales that Chip decides to get more jet re-draws rolling.

And a Fiddlers Green style F-18 would be a great thing. I have been wanting one for years; ever since my inlaws introduced me to a Canadian Forces pilot to flew the CF-18 Demo team plane. I'd dearly love to build the one he flew and send it to him.

Yip, saw the F-18 on the way. Nice models but... the models are all vector-based, I'm not a huge fan of that specific style.

They're scalable.

Raster is the more typical format, is uses pixels to represent an image, scaling upwards expands the pixels, making images look blocky. Vector graphics on the other hand use mathematical formulae to represent images. Using this method, any image can be expanded to whatever size necessary only limited by screen resolution.

I know what you mean; vector based art is crisp and clean, but seems to lack detail.
