These are some work-in-progress shots for a somewhat, rare bird with in the Sim Community - the A-7D Corsair II. We chose this aircraft because, well, for the most part there hasn't been a definitive model (i.e. like Captain Sims) on the A-7D. Why the A-7D you ask? Honestly, it's kind of a neglected aircraft, one that you don't see modeled too often or accurately. We hope to change that with the A-7 and produce some other aircraft that are; #1 challenging, and #2 Rarely modeled, and #3 Have an interesting history. Too many F-16's, F-18's, F-15's, F-22's and the likes have been modeled over and over again. So we want to produce some aircraft that are not too popular but that were crucial assets in their time. We will be representing all variants of the Corsair II Family. USN A-7A A-7B A-7C TA-7C A-7E USAF / ANG A-7D A-7K A-7F HAF A-7E A-7H TA-7C Portugal A-7P This model is obviously a WIP, and Dale has got a long way to go on it. The fuselage is 5K poly count. It is being created in Cinema 4D, then when it is done it will be exported to 3DS Max and there another modeler will get it prepped to animate and do final texturing and export to FS2004,FSX, and Strike Fighters. Features will include a detailed inlet and authentic fan, detailed moving pilot, standard array of lighting, Virtual cockpit, systems such as the PMDS, Radar, and HUD. etc... Research is going far better then we could have imagined and I am very pleased with the library we have to date. Today we have gained the help of the South Dakota ANG and the Colorado ANG. Enjoy!
