Pilot-RC aircraft variant of Extra 330SC

Hi,
First, sorry if this is in the wrong place etc.

I'm looking for help. User "thegibson" made a wonderful model of an Extra 330SC. I'm hoping he, or anybody can help me get a version of the model with the wings and horizontal stabilizers located where Pilot-RC puts them.

Here's "thegibson's" model. You can see that the wings are low and the stabs are high:

Here are some images of where Pilot-RC chose to put their wings and stabs. You can see that the wings are high, and the stabs are low:

What I'm doing & why I need this:
I'm hoping to buy a Pilot-RC Extra 330SC with a custom color scheme. I've been making a RealFlight color scheme and applying it to this RealFlight model. Then today I discovered the difference in wing and stab positions which unfortunately makes a big difference in my design. My CS would work on Krill or CARF probably, but not Pilot. I need a Pilot-RC version 3D model so I can adjust my CS.

Thanks enormously!
Charles

PS I use RealFlight 6.5. The EA is 4.5.

Does anybody know "thegibson" or know what I should do? I'm feeling really stuck at the moment.

He is banned from these forms. He may still be a lurker though.

You can move the wings, stabs in the physics of the aircraft and while it won't change the visual model, it will fly the way yours is setup

Thanks for the reply csgill75. Yeah I figured out he's banned. That's too bad, and exactly the reason I was hoping somebody might know him.... I'm in a position where I need to beg help from a stranger I don't know how to reach...

For what I'm trying to do, I don't need to care too much about the physics. I figured out how to do that btw. It's the visual model I need to change in order to correctly work out a custom color scheme. Is there a way to do that? (Please see the section in my original post "What I'm doing & why I need this")

Thanks again,
Charles
