Hi GrimmyI have experienced this problem as well, but only with bigger objects, example is a bridge with a span of about 500 meters. This bridge will disappear when I look at it, in the same direction as the bridge crosses the water, from both directions.I'm not sure about this, but I can't recall seeing this before I upgraded gmax to v1.2. So that's a theory. I have also tried using middleman and not using it during export with the same result.Regards,Kjell ArildNorway

I think it might have been caused be lack of subdivsions in the polygons. Not 100% sure yet though.Thx Kjell

I have the same problem with library objects made in Gmax and imported to Airport 2.60.I tried to make some approah lights but they disappeared when I approached the airport.They reappear when I'm on top of them.The lights at the other end of the runway looks fine until I'm on top of them, then they disappear too :-(I gave up and exported directly from Gmax but it would have been nice to know what the problem was.
