Wow Geof! That looks fantastic. Gotta love those V-tails (so long as they've been fixed so they break apart in flight ;-)). Great job James.Can't wait! :-grnmd

:-lol So we do get to play with that float plane! That's going to be a lot of fun, and so is the V-tail (though I prefer a normal tail over V anyday). Great work guys!Scott

Fabulous :-jumpy !!!! Mrs Beech's best! (No offence meant Geofa - I fly a PA22 after all - but in my fantasy of Bonanza ownership, if I can save 33% on the empennage, I might only have to sell my house, wife and kids, and be able to keep my car...!)Thank yooooo James!!!!

Only just got my internet time reset...man I gotta spend less time downloading stuff! :-)Thanks for your comments about it. I've reshaped the tail now, and looks a lot better than what it did in that pic. And the floats version is just about to get started on...big weekend for me! :-lolBut allow me to intoduce N1768J to you all... "Orion's Battery". I'm no Garry Smith, but I like it :-)http://homepages.paradise.net.nz/edenw/FS_..._banner_je9.jpg

Actually, James, its not really that hard to do dull metal. You can just use a metal gradient included with your painting program, make your own, or even use Eric Cantu's metal gradients. Then, once you've done that just place an alpha of about 50 over it to give it a semi-shiny effect. I've been messing around with it, but thats how I do it, and a few other people I know do it.Scott
