I wonder why MK II gets better frame rates that the other one. I get 150-180 with BR, & closer to 200 with the MK II - just glancing at the graphics frame rate while I'm flying.

I am still in "WIP" mode ...

I am jumping between this CS and my "new" T-28B CS ... which I wont show yet ... LOL

Let's just say that one is Top Secret for now ...
What is the setting in post #41 versus post 45.. ??, I found that 1 or 2 was the best for panel lines (recessed) and rivets (raised), at least for how they appeared in RF,..... much more than that,...then they appear (in RF) like lines on a foam plane, where they went overboard with the mold, meaning the Lines were to pronounced and rivets to big. The pics. in post #45 do look much better in my eye ...at least..

It could be because Mk II has a collision mesh and the first one didn't. It wasn't required so I didn't use them until I started working on RF-8.

Yeah, had I did a bit of forward thinking ... LOL I would have made the rivets on a separate layer ... I didn't even think about it back then ...

Well, forward thinking does seem to dissipate as we get involved in a project,been there done that, SO, did you eliminate a row a rivets on the panel lines.??? I ask because I can see on the "white" where that appears to be the case, BUT, I can`t tell on the Red, Excellent looking CS BTW.

An All-American Flyer, BIG RED MKII is the luxury version of BIG RED. Created by TECHNOID, It sports a engine cowl and wheel pants.

This plane just screamed for a Red White and Blue CS, making you want to stand up and salute as it flies over ...

ok, maybe not ... but I think you might like the CS, just the same.

The N-number is the date released .... 2/26/2018

Salute the Big Red mk11 as it fly's over in any color scheme ? a definite yes, it's a great bipe.
Must also send a salute to the "Painter" of this color scheme, spectacular job DDawg.

Thanks for the compliment ... should have seen me last night ... er ... this morning trying to post it to the swap pages ... unsuccessfully, I might add ....

Sure would look great with a big ol' radial under the cowl ...

I like this CS so much ... I am going to have to put it on one of my gazillion planes ...


But, it would be time consuming ...

I look at making CS'es like a big FLYING sketch pad for IDEAs ....
and having fun at the same time ...

the 9 cyl radial with the T-28 sound is a good choice
