Yes, it definitely looks like winner but I get a bit concerned...how will I land this aircraft when the nose / cowling blocks the view? Since I'm quite sure the view is correct I could rephrase this question: "How do real AN-2 pilots see where they're going?". It may be a question of checking right and left front quarter views (in FU3 parlance) and make some slow turns to disclose what's straight ahead.Hans Petter

Hi Hans Petter,Once the tail is down you don't see a lot in front but meanwhile I can land the AN-2 on the center line :-)Look here to see the reality

Looks worthy of a Jon or an Ansgar design - it certainly reminds me of the DC-3 series that Jon made a while back. Can't see the coffee-cup holder though. Are you doing the essentials last?As to landing - I reckon I could land it on a dime easily (just stick the dime to the left front wheel with superglue). Take your time on this one, agtim, I'm still exploring the latest Jon design (Stemme ST6) and enjoying floating over the countryside, and I look forward to trying this one when released.Umm, are all those switches going to work?Robert.

Yes, I can land that one :-) However, since we're all perfectionists, shouldn't the nose section show to some extent in this one too? I watched the youtube movie and see why you want that nose section / air intake to loom in front of the pilot. It's certainly there in real life. The higher your eyepoint the more it will show. Thus, if you straighten up to look above the panel you'll see more of the nose section.Regarding Rob's wish for a model I believe you have made one already. The first images you posted were to show the static model version.

Andre,Heartbreaking, isn't it?And Rob, yes I thought I was looking at your handiwork, although mine's close...Looks like you've taught Andre well :-lolRegards,Jon Point

not really soon, there is a lot finishing work :-(Main work will now be to adapt the air physic part so the behavior in flight will be as real as possible like an AN-2.This is my first adaptation and this will need some time, but is essential to get good flight simulation. I want to modify the ResViewer to modify air physic data directly. Actual flight behavior is like a Jon's D17F.Later I have to create sound files including the call sequences and last but not least a short description for the menu.Here is the finished 3D ( polygon limit reached )http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/181634.jpg:-waveAndre
