GP Escapade

this is a new model from gp....mine is on backorder to get one late january. i have no photos....they can be found at tower hobbies....or gp. i was wondering if you guys that make these sim models could make one of these in ep? sure wish i knew how to create planes...it looks to me like its way over my scope of pc ability.

You should find some 3-views of the plane, to intrigue a modeler. It's not right to make them do ALL the work. And, there are several modelers here who felt like you, that modeling is too difficult for them. But their desire for a particular plane drove them to succeed. Ain't that right phrank, DH, Wilsonman, cowboy, Heeley?

Good news is, if it's made by Great Planes, chances are it will eventually show up in an expansion pack, but you gotta be really patient.

If you can't wait any longer, there is always this:

Yeah ed moore I'm afraid I need at least a decent side shot of the model. For better results I need a top and side view.

Definetly. A seperate post should be made "Sticky" with these images. Pictures like that can be used for modelling....

Greets,

Keep your britches on guys, I'll do it. I even got the chance to maiden one of these last week. Great flying little plane, I had already added it to my list of potentials.
