Hi All,I present you my Skyvan model, coming on very well, not really a lot left to do now.This is my first FS model, and has been a struggle, but I have had some good help along the way.The Skyvan is supposedly the ugliest plane ever, but I think its a great little plane.Hope you like her, it certainly has been a labour of love :-lolDan.http://www.flightsin.com/skyvan1.jpghttp://www.flightsin.com/skyvan2.jpghttp://www.flightsin.com/skyvan3.jpghttp://www.flightsin.com/skyvan4.jpg

Hey Dan, you are right....the ugliest plane ever! LOL looks good, very nice for a first design, bravo, got a VC? What program you use?Here is an old pic of my first aircraft (1 month into it), still quite a ways to go, thinking of importing it into Gmax, now that I have a handle on it and I find texturing much more sensible in Gmax also and that has proved to be a pain.http://www.calvirair.com/mcpics/ascomplete.jpgLooking forward to your finished deal!Regards, MichaelKDFWhttp://www.calvirair.com/mcpics/PBTMCa.jpgCalVirAir International VACalVirAir International

Cheers buddy ;)I can't take credit for the windows though, I came up against a big brickwall with those.Luckily the great Mr Rick Piper came to my rescue and did them for me!!!!Dan.

Hi,What do you mean by "go over the smoothing groups" ?.Don't think I will ever be comfortable with FSDS ;)CheersDan.

smoothing groups are something hard to explain..lol :)anyways.. Here's how i think it can be explained..Try making yourself a simple airfoil shape.. with the same smoothing group.notice the at the trailing edge the surface would be dark..now try assigning the top and bottom polygon each a different smoothing group.
