I'm glad you took this one up personally. It will be a very cool model in the sim.
You tell me. this is what my geometry is looking like.

Just out of curiosity, what size are we talking about here? Looks great so far.

Right around 1/5 unless it looks ridiculous in RF, But I think that's the scale matt made his in his screenie.

Here is what it looks like with a fresh spawn at Gold County. It is 1/5th scale which makes it a big model. It's turboprop for the cool factor and because it's big.

Boof,

Check out this variant of the 802, the AT-802U COIN. I know it would require additional modeling but it is intriguing.

Some nice weapon power and they are being sold.

I like the single seat version as well, glad you went that way.

Attached are some pictures of the cockpit (not a Fire Boss) don't know if they will help you in any way.
Just to show how big it really is in RL.

I did see that one online. Pretty cool, but it would be a different version altogether from the fire boss. No promises but maybe.

Is this just camera angle or what? It seems as if the wing tips on the circled aircraft are different than the others. Interesting.

I do believe those are two examples of a different tip. If you use the nav lights at the tips for a frame of reference you'll see they are curled over at the trailing edge, The others just have a rounded tip.

What about the CS? is this still a group project thing ?
no offence to you boof
but should it not fall in to the hands of whomever came in second place in the origanal poll?
or is the whole project thing dead ?.....
