I was joking Mikey. I need the controller version as mine is smoked. If I jump back in I will need some specifics from you about the F-16
Ah I see. Well if you do go forward with getting it, I will be more than happy to pay for an F-16.

So i'm looking around to find some information on the differences in the design process since I've designed last. That being since version 6.5
If anyone is willing to answer a few questions continue the conversation. Thanks
What's up ol' buddy? I get on here for the first time in a while and see this. Kind of miss trying to figure out how you used to get so much detail in with such a small poly limit. Would love to see what you could do with what's available now.

ANDYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE...!!!!, What`s up man, how ya doing ..?? HA, ya know, when Boof chimed in, I about fell out of my chair, and now, Holy Crap, I just about fell out of my chair again, when you chimed in..!!:eek::eek: Really nice to hear from you again. Would love to see what Boof could do with new new poly limit as well, AND, you as well for that matter, hint, hint... ;);), I havn`t done a CS in yrs., BUT, there`s a piper in the works from Technoid, that should be released soon, and I`m seriously considering doing a CS for that..:D:D... Anyway, good to hear from you, and, I hope Boof chimes in and says Hi to you,

Ha ha!! UT, I wish I had the time I once had to model again. I have been tinkering in Max some lately, but it has been designing some projects in doing here at home. Who knows though, I might try and whip something out before long.

Well, I can tell you, that, IF, you came back and did just one model, it probably would give these forums a HUGE, and much needed shot in the arm, NOW, if, you AND Boof, came back back at close to the same time, that would be even Bigger... Ya know, I think you were the first to call me "UT", I`m embarrassed to admit it, BUT when I got the reply from you using "UT", I thought, well hell, who`s he`s answering..??, It`s plain too see he`s (you) answering somebody, who the heck is it..???, a few minutes go buy, AND THEN, the light went on, I figured it out, It was ME... DUH..!!! if there was such a Homer Simpson moment for me, that was it..:confused::confused::eek::eek: (see pic..;):D). needless to say, I gave myself a Jethro Gibbs slap in the head,, and replied back...;):D:D

I'm just posting an airplane I would like to see modeled if anyone is interested and can get enough info. Donamy has expressed interest, but drawings and dimensions are lacking. The aircraft is no longer manufactured.

It was used extensively by an Argentina team …

I had RC plans made from info provided by the manufacture, but the info doesn't seem to be available now. Might be on an old laptop, but can I find it???
Modeled at 180 inches would be almost 3/4 scale.

Pictures below …………….

Hey Andy,
I still see you on the FB here and there.
I bought the new version and am going to try to do one up in the limited time I have these days. No need in trying to figure my poly economy out with the new poly limit. (so roooomy). Although I will probably still be economical. (old habits) I would really like to do a heavily detailed cockpit and spend some real time with the CS.

Don’t know that he posts much anymore but we talk offline quite a bit. He’s still in it and actually uses it to make some real world models with pretty good results.

Fly_Electric is working on the Flying sub from "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea". He posts his progress occasionally. A lot of detail.
