I have done a number of repaints for Chip and he has talked me into doing some redraws. I thought I would see what people would like redrawn and I'll see what I can do. Chip has me starting on the Hawker Hurricane. These will be just redraws of old models to start with, as I get more experience might try designing.

I wouldn't throw the P-38 at him yet. It needs a complete overhaul, not just a redraw.

An easier suggestion for a redraw would be the Harrier

When I'm done with the Me-163, I'll ask Chip if I can redo the P-38. It needs a complete reengineering, in Murph scale. Same with the F-14.

My suggestion would be to alphabetize them and start at the top.

It's up to Chip who does what. I was asked to do the Hurricane. It is his company after all. I would check with him first, before you put time into a redraw. He might already have some one working on the one your want to do.

Any chance, once the Hurricane's done, of a Sea Hurricane repaint/mod?

Got slowed down on the hurricane redraw by real life and Chip wanting some repaints of the P-39 Aircobra. From the images I've found so far of Sea Hurricanes they look to be the same outside and I will be doing several versions. I can do a Sea Hurricane version.

Thanks--I'm trying to educate some jokers about why USN carriers packed so many more planes than similar-sized Brit and Japanese counterparts, and I figure building up a complete airgroup for each should be rather educational...

Next problem for me, finding dimensions and diagrams of the various hangar decks so I can show 'em just how those limits stack up.
