After looking at his post he was just telling everyone this is the way to work together to request a plane. I would not get so upset about his comment.

That's a shame. He is one of the designer/builders around here. Intrigue him with an idea, he may make it for you. He was telling you how to intrigue a modeler. They all like it when you do a little bit of legwork to help them out.

Ummmm..... Okey dokey then.
I did not adress you specifically, rather anyone requesting a bird.
Since you have called my attention, I now address you:
You did not comply with the request of posting 3views for your tasty plane,
this thread is a great example of how to acomplish that.
Guess what? Following suggestions works, this plane will have a home in Realflight in the near future.

Should you choose to stick around,
There is an ignore function in this forum, feel free to use it on those that bother you, you can start with me.

Good day sir.

Well I'd probably have the plane done, but I decided to make the visible engine a showcase. May I present a Saito Gold Knight at just under 5800 polys.

Hey Doug long time since I've seen you around.

Project is looking like you have a good start on it. I was wondering if you were going to make the high and low needle settings functional also

Hi Dane,
It seems like I've been on the road a lot (both for work & family matters) and have just been busy with other stuff. The only modeling I've done was a quickie for George right after the holidays.

Progress report on the Escapade: 3D model of the plane is completed. All that's left is the gear, motor mount, and pilot (which for the most part I'll steal from one of my other planes, so that won't take long).

I've had it for the night, here's the progress. 10,300 polys at present (and the pilot is already under the canopy).

Model's done - 10,947 polys used, so I'll need to add collision meshes before export. On to the scheme.

Not quite the same font, but about as close as I could find. Unless anyone has any other suggestions for it.

Mine looks like yours. Minus all the normals issues

Thumbs up

That model is looking good. I'm glad the pictures I posted helped. I'm a Solidworks designer by profession and I can appreciate the many hours it takes to get a model just right. One of these days I'm going to have to do my research on modeling a plane for Realflight. Great job guys.
