I'm modeling a freeware Hondajet HA420 , Here's my progress

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

I've been working on a 3d model of a Hondajet for the past couple of month and Wanted to show you some progress.

The intention is to create a freeware model for FSX/P3D while being a training tool for me in 3d modeling.

I have thin experience in programming ,so I will have to dig deep into learning FSX/P3D SDK specific programming to model the systems and general functionality. the goal is to have advance autopilot  with integration of flight1 GTN750 , and basic systems for the rest.

I'm showing renders of both the interior and exterior ,obviously I spent more time on the interior thus far. Many refinements and details to be added.

Let me know your feedback.

Looks nice. I actually saw one of these at KHEF during the inauguration. I don't know how many are in the US, but the number must be very small.

Wonderful,,,really glad your doing this! PM sent. Love this plane and did all the colors for the old freeware version. Here are the paints I did.

Looks amazing!  You *might* want to contact Flight1 about integration of their G1000.  But that's a G3000, isn't it?  Not sure what the difference is besides the lower touchscreens.

EDIT:  Meant to ask, what 3D modelling software are you using?

Thanks!

during my thinking process of which plane to model; I felt the Honda had the most interesting curves, Its canopy is certainly unique + I fell in love with the wing mounted engine!

I am now working within the 3D program , but will tinker with the texturing and export to the sim soon . Hoping you can recreate your wonderful work for this version!

it has a G3000 , which I don't think has been recreated for the sim yet? the GTN750 I believe will fit perfectly for the lower touch screens, Perhaps I can approach this by imbedding the default G1000 PDF and ND and complementing with the GTN750 on the lower units. are you aware of any developer who approached modeling a plane with a G3000 system? perhaps I can take a que from their approach. 

I use 3dsmax for modeling.

Very nice!  I've got a decent amount of pics (and some closeups) of one that came to Duluth a few years back.  PM me with your email if you need any pics

I don't think anyone has tried it and suspect it would be tough.

As an aside, one thing that would be cool would be a remodel of the Flight1 Mustang.  It's a wonderful plane to fly, has a nice G1000, a really good FADEC implementation, and an autopilot with a great FLC mode.  For years now, it's been the best VLJ/Business Jet on the market.  The only thing is, it's visuals have become dated...especially in comparison to what you've done to that HondaJet.  The one thing that might make it a challenge is that it has icing effects on the windshield and wings.

Hello gents,

Wanted to show you some updates on further modeling and texturing for the cockpit. Notably gauge texts and buttons of the pedestal... This is a render in the 3D package .. not yet in engine

That is a very good looking model! :cool:

One bit of advice I would offer as someone that has been modeling for a very long time...get it exported into the sim. Renders are cool, but there is a lot of stuff that comes into play when you get a plane in-sim that can give you a lot of clean-up work to do. The best practice would be to first have the export procedure working, and then check your work as you go.

Hi Marwan,

You've got some serious skill there - sir...

Nice work...

Regards,

Scott

Wow, incredible work on this.  The Hondajet is certainly unique with its engines mounted the way they are.  The real one has been a longtime in development.  Some good videos can be found on Youtube.

Hello gentlemen. 

I had to put this project on hold for the past 8 month for unseen workloads.

I was finally able to pick it up again 2 weeks back with re-ingnited love! redid the exterior from scratch , modeled a cabin and finally got around to doing the moving parts as the gear bay door, flaps and ailerons. Things get really tough when fitting the different parts back together as there are no actual engineering references for the design I was able to find. So eye balling things from pictures when doing 3d modelling will always call for many redos of a lot of stuff to make them fit right. so this was a very challenging model for me to make.

I am now satisfied with the silhouette that I'm ready to do the texture baking and start importing to the sim.

I've spent a lot of time meanwhile reading through the SDK and have a somewhat good idea on how to go about things from here.

Have a look at these latest pics and let me know what you think:

Hi Folks,

Speechless... 

Do you have some idea of the coding that goes into glass panels ? Those three massive displays could be a bear...

Best of luck...

Regards,

Scott
