  1. Thanks John, I really appreciate that. I have some ideas for some other aircraft models as well, down the line, once the Yaks are all done. I made the poll public on my Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/posts/57343137 No commitment necessary
  2. Ah, the "artists" strike again! Its a little sad how the Buran is just left to decay in there.
  3. That is a very tiny picture. Its incredibly hard to see what you did with the model.
  4. The aircraft is not Air America, but C-46R XW-PHN was registered to Continental Air Services, which did basically a lot of the same stuff Air America did in the region, just under the banner of Continental Airlines. Still had lots of connections to the CIA. They had quite the interesting array of aircraft as well. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continental_Air_Services,_Inc
  5. So, Out of the Box failed, and everyone who pre-ordered the Yaks was refunded. I definitely learned a lot from that Experience, but I really felt bad about the whole experience. So, I decided to use my own money to Finnish the development of the Yak-9D and Yak-9T, which should be ready any day now. I am going to put the files up for free on Thingiverse, so anyone can download and print them themselves. As an added bonus, I am also going to start working on a Yak-9P as well.
  6. I can 3D print some for you, if that helps. I can probably also help with those decals if you need it too. If you can help me find a good diagram of the DC-4 props we can make this happen.
  7. I've always been a fan of that aircraft. I'd be willing to make a 3D printable kit, if drawings can be sourced.
  8. I am having a bear of time researching some aircraft. Some of these I am trying to draw decals for, others I already have decals of them, and its just bugging me that I can't figure out what their BuNos/Serials are for my records. Do you guys have any good resources to find this stuff out? I use Joe Bauer's database very extensively, but sometimes I can't find what I'm looking for there. Here are the aircraft in question: F6F-5 MB213 Maybe ATU-2? F8F-1 B258 Maybe ATU-2? SNB-3Q FP10 FAIRBETUPAC Fleet Airborne Electronics Training Unit, Pacific P2V-4 FP2
  9. Here is the new redesign based on the new drawings!
  10. I wouldn't say they were incorrect as much as they were distorted. Which we fixed, since we knew the exact measurements of the aircraft, so we "un-distorted" the drawing to match the dimensions. Here's the latest update:
  11. I'm not the one doing the CAD work, I hired this gentleman as a contractor. And he felt most comfortable using that program. He's done other work for me, mostly railroad stuff, and he's always been very accurate.
  12. Here's the latest update, its a bit of an older picture, showing the former mismatch we had with the measurements and the drawings. The mismatch has since been fixed.
  13. This is going to be the development log of the first 1/72 aircraft kit that my company, Out of the Box Models, has ever designed. Please feel free to weigh in if you see any thing we're missing or any errors we're making. This is going to be a 3D printed kit. printed in multiple parts, similar to a resin kit, for ease of painting and detailing. We are going to include parts to make the Yak-9T and Yak-9D in 1/72nd scale. CAD progress after day 1:
