Hi Tomvaillencourt!

Here is an image or for changes to the air-frame.

Thanks, Krispy1001 ^-^


VERY NICE! This thing is coming along great! When the Airframe is all done, and you have some basic textures, I can see if I can paint it. I'm limited to FSRepaint though. There are other guys I've seen who use Photoshop or GIMP, but I'll Try my hand first if you want.

Hi Tomvaillencourt!

Here are a few more images of what I have done on the aircraft. I added simple materials, and started the wheels.

Hi Tomvaillencourt!

Sorry I did not know that the images did not work.

Here they are again.

Remember there are no textures applied, only simple materials.

Let me know if you can see them now.

Thanks, Kris ^-^

Nice! can the nose wheel be a bit bigger? or the mains a little smaller? Don't do it if its too much work, but even if the nose wheel is a little smaller than the mains, they should still be close in size.. I wonder too if theres a better way to mount the nose wheel.... Not sure that would steer well without the nose wheel trying to caster backwards. I hate being critical, but thats what you wanted right? my Honest input good or bad? I hope.. This is your work of art, so I will absolutely shut up if you feel insulted in any way. that is not my intent here at all!

Hi Mr. Tom!

No, you are not insulting me at all. I do want your input. This is your requested aircraft, so I want to do it to as close as I can to what you want.

Thank you for the images that you found of the front landing gear. I will re-model it from your image that you found. I will also increase the front wheel size.

Thanks, Kris ^-^

I know its my request, but you are the one putting in all the work, so I hate to be too critical if you've spent an entire day on something. I can't even figure out how to do 3d modeling or I would be! haha! Thank you for doing this... It means alot!
I also hope It wasn't an insult to link you to the other 3d model for a visual reference. Yours is coming out great, and he had a much more expensive modeling software to his advantage. I think he used Cinema 4D which can actually export to 3DS. what is your model format?

Hi Mr. Tom!

You did not insult me at all. I am new to 3D modeling, so any positive criticism that will help me be a better modeler is very welcome.

I use Blender to model with. I have been using it for about 5 months now. It is a very good program and it is freeware. So I am very happy with it.

Here are two new images of the re-work on the aircraft. Let me know if you think that I have made the front wheel big enough. Also let me know if you think that the angle on the front landing gear shaft is at the correct angle.

Thanks, Kris ^-^
