Brields, you are the best reason I can think of to take my builds underground.

Eh, My mind is like an '09 Prius. Wide open, going way to fast, and no way to depress
the gas or hit the brake.

Gotta do a render sometime. I'm at 10,482 with the interior prepped for modeling. Nothing is in it yet.

Looking really good, except I have got to admit, the wingtip is bothering me. It just doesn't match up with what I see in either the photo or the 3 view. Still, that is a minor detail, the plane as a whole looks great so far.

It's supposed to look like this. It's my best shot.

Come on jeff, you know you can do better than that. It looks like you rolled the flat around the curve to the leading edge. Time to re think how to do better. The plane looks great, but the wing tips blow big time.

Okay, flex, for no other reason than to please you, I hope this is more deserving of your respect.

I'm not necessarily driven to perfection. I just do this for fun. But, I gotta keep the whiners quiet!
