I tried to fit "I.B. Yakinov's" airshows skin, to the new yak ... but failed horrible ... and not feelin' creative lately
Of course everything was resized but the nose moment was increased by .50 inch and the tail moment was increased by 1.5 inches. Once I get everything finished I'll upload the 3ds wireframe and color scheme tgas for you. Sorry about your extra work

What's life, but without a wee bit of pain and sorrow ...

So, I await patiently for you latest gift.

And as always, I will dutifully make my adjustments and redo my efforts, as the Yak is well worth it ...

I would love to see you do up another aerobatic plane ... down the road ... if you find the time ...

I will talk/type to you about it later ... via off the grid ...

And that explains why my checkerboard nose pattern was giving me such fits in the fitment department .... LOL ... Thought my eyes went bad on me again ... diabetes causes me issues some times ...

I have some stuff cooking so I better get in there but I wanted to post a picture of where I'm at with the Yak cockpit work. The shadows in RF cause problems because they make the cockpit much lighter and much darker. Sitting like this picture it's much lighter. I used to fly with the shadows off for that very reason. Shadows are nice to have of course but the ones in RF 8 aren't something to brag about.

I thought I'd drop by and post an update with the finished Dashboard. I added gauges on each side and lots of screws. I also adjusted the gray used for the cockpit and made it darker. It seems to look okay. Like I said before when you're flying the inside of the plane is lighter or darker depending on the sun.

Edit: I just went back and lightened the dashboard and cockpit color a little.

WOW!
I guess I will not be flying the Yak 37%....I will be spending more time sitting in the cockpit staring at all the amazing detail.

I think I'm finished with the plane but I do need to go back and tweak a few of the stripes. I thought I'd upload another beta for anyone that wants to checkout the new cockpit. The stick and foot pedals move with the flight controls and the canopy retracts with the channel 6 knob. And of course smoke on the channel 7 switch.

Just grabbed the latest I've been having fun trying out engines on each side of the 150 you have chosen. Like the Evolution 116GX and the DLE 170.

Thanks Technoid, way too much detail inside the cockpit, maybe I should have been looking where I was going instead of checking the interior so intently. Nice feature with the moveable rudder pedals and stick.
