I would really like to get the Sukhoi Su 27 whenever they come out. It's my most favorite jet Fighter.

Thanks for sharing Nathan. Anyway you can make the A-4 shot bigger ?? I saw the Phantom shots on Facebook, she's looking good.

Those prototypes are looking great, Nate! With the F-4, you’ve gotten near where Admiral Toys once was and way further than 21st Century Toys ever got 8)

Tom sent me this of the parts cleaned and taped together. Once I have it I can attach the wings and vertical tail section.

Nothing as of late. Work has been keeping me busy. I am hoping to get something done this weekend.

Snuck in a little work on the A4 over the weekend. Don't like cold rainy days in spring, but is a perfect excuse to sit in the shop. I was able to get the canopy cut out, wings fitted and dorsal fin attached. Still need to work on the windscreen. It shattered when I was trying to cut it loose. The SLA material is very thin and brittle. WIP

The price point I am shooting for would be below $300 or even lower. My plan is to keep it simple. No moving parts other than maybe the canopy. Plug N Play wheels like the 1/32 F4. I would like to stay with the fiberglass wings and fuselage. Do enough that it looks nice, but allows the builder to do more detail if they wanted. It's a tricky balance to get enough detail that people are interested and too much that it's not affordable.

I am tinkering around with an Arduino for my own amusement to add exhaust illumination, cockpit lighting, NAV lights and sounds. The 1/350 TOS Enterprise I have slotted to work on next has an amazing light and sound system ran by an Arduino. Cool thing is it can be tailored to almost anything.

I'm open to thoughts.

Like the idea that this will be fibreglass, a bit more stable than resin and a lot more lighter. This has piqued my interest in the Skyhawk. Personally keeping it simple without a deluge of moving parts is probably the way to go. If the F-4 turns out to be fibreglass too then again would be interested. Very impressive work, actually it's pretty amazing Nathan. btw Thanks again for the F-14 undercarriage, they arrived in the UK safe and sound.
