Yes, they are the same as previously posted, so you didn't miss anything. I've got the project on hold until the gauge coding is completed. I cannot finish the VC until all the gauges are completed.  Shocked


Hm, sounds like the model will feature some "smooth" in-model gauges.


Instruments for the VC will be another problem for me, even though I don't want to do a full system simulation.
But thankfully this is still miles away. Grin

Nope. All the gauges are C++/GDI+. I'm not coding the gauges for this project, so that's why I'm waiting, and waiting, and waiting...  Roll Eyes

Oh, I see!

A classic demonstration of how the otherwise logical and efficient concept of teamwork can backfire.
I hope you'll get your gauges and I'm pretty sure you won't be bored at all while waiting for them. Wink

Oh Lord no! I'm never bored! I have far too many projects to work on for that to happen.  I've always got something that can be worked on...  Grin

The person doing the gauge coding has two other, more critical projects at the moment, so I fully understand the delay.  Tongue

*Bump*

It's been a struggle, but madmoiselle now has one of her main legs.
The "details" wouldn't have been possible without Bill L.'s drawings.
So thank you again, Bill!
You caused me a lot of unplanned extra work (Wink), but I have a fairly realistic, nonetheless simplified main gear now.
And I finally got to realize that the 328's designers were awfully clever S.O.Bs. A nice gear mechanism they thought of there... Cheesy

Boy, do I look forward animating and texturing this stuff!  Shocked  Tongue



But first of all, it's all about adding one or two or three final details to the fuselage and wings (e.g. small fins and the flap attachments), fixing something here and there before I take the biggest step so far - mirroring the fuselage!

Dang! Nice looking gear!

Makes mine look shabby even with some clothes on...  Undecided

Well, at least you have the more detailed tyres.  Grin


(I'm hoping that some bump maps will add some depth to mine.)



By the way: What does the "clamp" on the main gear leg do? Holding the damper or so?

*Kick*

Still at it...lol.

Big milestone: Nose Landing Gear plus my first animation (NLG gear doors...what a PITA!)
Small milestones: Countless detail improvements, resolved shading problems and a completely redone vertical stabilizer.

And I think I found the perfect three-views. They're from the Welcome Air homepage and perfectly detailed, yet a bit small.


Current state of the model after some frantic, quick and dirty mirroring...


First of all, the NLG:

This is looking better than I've expected. I'm so proud of myself that I could cry... Grin



Next up: Windows, doors, interieur, animations and textures.  Tongue



- Edit:
Heh, I just realized that I've almost got an AI model at this time. A 44000 poly AI model... Grin

[goof mode on] I hope that you are planing to install Vista Windows on this craft! if you craft 7 Winodws Beta editions it will stop working shortly...  Tongue Tongue  [goof mode off]

Great job on a great plane Mate!

Nah, the Windows will be XP. Stable and clean... Grin

Thanks!

Made some progress since publishing those pictures, but the passenger door with its complicated bar construction is killing the motivation to continue for me big time at the moment.

Need to kick my butt a bit to take up work again. LoL!

No fancy promo images with a fully mirrored model this time, but enough highlights to make you say " Shocked" anyways.  Grin
Doors, windows, a simple cockpit, the rudder and ten brazillions of detail improvements.

It's even "watertight" now! (Although it was one hell of a battle. Tongue)

Next up: Textures! (Oh boy...) Then animations! (Yay...Tongue) Plus details (Working windscreen wipers...) And flight dynamics! (Any takers? Please?)



P.S: Could anyone lend me a low poly (~10000 max) pilot model to man that simple cockpit? Please?

Two milestones within 24 hours! I might break some personal records here... Grin

UVW mapped fuselage:

I had to divide the whole model into multiple parts for that. An incredible amount of work, especially the cabin. Tongue


By the way, is there a good Max 9 plugin to facilitate the annoying UVW Unwrap?
I simply hate realigning stray edges...

I slowly but surely start hating this "UVW Unwrap" stuff.  Lips Sealed
