If anyone wants to send me a file for building I'd be happy to run it through the printer. PM me. I'm in the UK, by the way.

I can't get excited or drool. It's a tool for talented people who can do CAD. Bit like looking at a £5,500 cello thinking I could actually play it.
I have also come to the conclusion that the only way to see a 1/32 plastic Draken is to get the card model and copy it in styrene card of various thickness, scratchbuilding stuff like landing gear.
Yes, that is a good way. A short cut to scratch building. Most paper card models are 1/33 scale but you can easily reduce that to 1/32 by use of the copying machine. It will not be easy, the saddle curves and tight radius curves will require some carving, but it can be done.

TBH, I might be happy with a 1/33 card model. AFAIK the 1/72 and 1/48 Hasegawa Drakens (and the Revell repops) were a tremendous success so I really am at a loss as to why this hasn't appeared in 1/32 IM form. But then it took fifteen years to get that other beautiful European 1960s icon, the Mirage III, to materialise.
Back on thread, I might give CAD a go but very seldom sit at the PC these days as nearly *everything* is done on a tablet.
Am interested in designing coins but would love to wrestle with the AIM-4D Falcon missile L-series launch rails used by Phantom IIs, which are conspicuous by their absence.
