Pretty nice looking.What program are you using? How many polygons does your model have? Do you have the MSFS SDK installed? Give us a little more to go on. :)

Well the Final Model should have no more than 5.000 polys,and no i havnt used MSFS iv only bin using the FSX SDK and trying to learn as much as i can, I Use MAYA 7 to model then Export it as a DXF and then open it with 3Ds Max 8 then I eport it from Max as a .X file and then use the XToMdl tool to make the MDL and so this is where Im at dont know what to do next with the MDL ohh and here is a nicer Render of the LA_5_FN http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/177366.jpg

Simply copy/paste the entire of a "stock" aircraft folder structure and rename it to your own needs.This way, you will have a "basic" setup that you can then modify without screwing up one of the "stock" aircraft's settings. ;)BTW, that's a very nice, clean model!For a whole lot of "Tips and Tutorials," as well as a very active group of 3d modelers, head on over to:http://freeflightdesign.com
