Thanks! Yes, I will add a VC to it. It will be similar in style with the S-46 Orca cockpit....

i think it should also be a bit car-like.
since this would be a "normal man's" aircraft.
looking nice so far,think i'll take repainting up again. ;)

When I say like the Orca, I mean with the same HUD style and stuff like that. The controls are going to be similar to those of the  S-4A prototype (If you don't know it just search simv for S-4A Prototype)

No way man. I had very bad experiences with setting release dates before. Heck, acording to the release date, my F-22 would have been released almost 2 years ago...

By the way, what kind of flight model are you intending to use ? Plane or helicopter ?
I'm guessing helicopter.

Nope, VTOL plane. You have to lower the flaps in FS to make it take off vertically...
And I still have exams until next monday, so no play time until there....

Back to work on the "beast"! ;D

Textured most of the exterior. Only the landing gear and stuff related to that is left to be mapped and textured. Also some details I haven't added yet. I've also been playing around with the bump map.
Next stop: Cockpit

The flight characteristics are nice too. Though when you land it seems like the plane has landed on a pillow and, after touching down and stoping the plane, it slowly rotates to the "rest" position.
