Yep, don't worry about the wing lying on the ground, look at the gauges, they are undamaged.

Waiting for somebody to do the inevitable Red Bull or Monster Energy CS for this. Personally I don't like sponsored company ones.

Okay I added a bit more detail to the dashboard today and started working on the crossover stripes. I also aligned the end of some of the stripes that didn't meet perfectly. So here's a picture of the dashboard can you tell me what's been added or changed on it?

OPPs.. There seems to be a problem after the server move today I just tried to upload a picture, actually two pictures, and it says they're not valid image files.

They fixed the image upload problem so here's the dashboard with the changes, see if you can find them. Hint.. there are 6 changes.

Good man ! Yep I needed to add those to finish it off. I wish I could say this is my design but I actually found a picture of a dashboard on the web and cutout everything and used it to create my own dashboard. So thanks go to them for creating cool gauges.

I disagree, the instrument gauges are common, and very similar.
they sort of need to be universal.

you had to do all the work to place the in your model.

it wasn't a cut and paste job.

take the credit for work well done.

Thanks! Sure, I'll take credit for what I did it was a lot of work to get everything cutout and create a new dash for the Yak and place everything in it. I just wanted to give credit for the gauge 'images' to their creator.

A short update. I finished all the crossover stripes today and man there were a lot of them. The stripes on the top of the wing were different than the bottom of the wing so there were lots of crossover stripes to create. I may not create crossover stripes for a complex CS like this next time, it's a ton of work for something you don't really see much.. especially just flying the plane. But it does add a nice touch when you look at the plane in the editor.

I guess I'm ready to release the plane now so Friday or Saturday I'll upload it to the swap pages. I like to release planes on a weekend so guys that drop by Saturday or Sunday see the plane on the main swap page before it gets covered up by CS uploads.

Being honest I'm not sure which is really the best size, 25% or 37%, opinions?
