I've been working on Junker today and it's nearly ready to start mapping, just a few tweaks here and there to finish it up. That's all I've been doing today just little things here and there. There doesn't seem to be much happening on the forums so I thought I'd just post something to say what I'm up to. Anyone else alive out there?

I`m still here Tech., I check in on the forums everyday, especially yours. I think we just need more modelers here to liven things up a bit. Unfortunately, modeling isn`t that easy too learn.

I check in here every day. I didn't wanna post too much in your thread unrelated to the project. I've been out flying my helis the last couple of afternoons. Today though it's supposed to be rainy and windy. I hate getting up at 3 am but do like having the time off after lunch.

Yes I agree it would be more fun if we had more modelers. I remember when I first started, abaser, Fly_electric, legoman, and I guess me. My models tend to be very similar so I image that gets a bit boring to watch. It's fun for me because I'm creating them but less fun to watch. And I've noticed when I model high profile models like the Jenny, Great Lakes Special, SE5, and F8F the interest level is much higher. But I'm cursed with liking plain-ole RC models so that's what I tend to model.

I decided to do something a bit different. I went back and grabbed the 3d Gauges I made for the SE-5 and reworked them a bit for Junker. This time I'm creating working Air Speed, RPM, and Artificial Horizon gauges. The artificial horizon is a simple plane profile that will be animated to climb, dive, and roll with the plane. It's not a full artificial horizon gauge but something to look at while flying. Here's a picture of the dashboard with the needles I made.

So now I can program heavy fog in the environments and fly on gauges, awesome.

Wow .. next thing you know you'll have a pilot that gets flung out on a crash. Don't ever think I've seen working gauges.

The depicted "heading gauge's" proper name is artificial horizon. a true heading gauge is a compass

Ever fly the DC-3 or the A-1H in realflight? And I guess we could make the pilot head eject on a crash it; would not be too hard.

A bit more work on Junker today I added a new tail gear. I always dread the mapping phase that's probably why I tweak so much before starting it.
