Thanks guys I really appreciate the support on Rage but for now I'm going to put it on the back burner. There's a lot of work to do on it before it would make me happy but right now I just need a break. So I'll work on it now on then (probably) but for now it's set to simmer.

Dihedral looks good. Don't forget to keep an eye on that simmering pot.

Thanks guys that's what I need to do take a break and take care of things around the house. I'm not forgetting about the model just slowing down, at least for now that's all it is. But this may be the last model I design the interest in doing that seems to have faded away.

Well I guess the pot boiled over because I started working on Rage again. There were some things about Rage that really bugged me but after some time away from it I went back and fixed the problems and now I feel better about it. I've made some progress and have the first version flying in RealFlight, although nothing is mapped so it's just a light gray color. But I have the first pass of the physics finished and I started on the cockpit. Here's a picture of where I stopped.

I know the feeling/frustration Tech., I had to start from the beginning T-H-R-E-E !!!!!!!!!!!!! times, when I did my PZL plane, Did I want to give up ??? YES, .....BUT, I wanted to finish a plane for RF MORE!! perseverance paid off, and I completed it . Sometimes you just have too step away for a bit. What was hard for me, is that I couldn`t, SO it was extremely frustrating for me at times, simply due to my lack of knowledge in modeling, but I got it done, AND it felt good and worth the effort. Your canopy is looking great !!

I did a bit more work on Rage tonight. I cut-in the cockpit area and added the dashboard.

I finished the cockpit today here's a picture for you. It's hard to get a good angle on a small cockpit like this with the turtle deck in the way.

Looks like you plan on a sliding canopy and moving controls again. Very nice.
