    340k tris so far. I should be able to stay under 400k with the pit.

    Would love to see a wire-frame image or two of the renders above. :)

    Not the same angle cause I didn't save the camera position, but you should get the idea. For some strange reason an object doesn't have the wireframe superimposed, I broke Max! :D

    This looks stunning and indeed very inspiring to get better in modeling myself Luca!
    Questions:
    - What modeling program do your use Luca?
    - What type of modeling reference materials are you using?
    - How many hours have you put into this model (give or take a couple of hours)

    - 3dsMax
    - diagrams when possible, LOTS of photos for everything else (from the internet, brochures, university/industry stuff and some from a test pilot)
    - countless, probably nearing or over 1k hours. Modeling is just the tip of the iceberg, there's a massive job of comparing, studying and understanding the material on hand behind it.

    Cup holders in such a frisky little jet would be as handy as in a Formula One car. And as likely to spill yore coffee, as any fule kno.

    I think the excitement of flying the jet itself would generate enough of a buzz....

    Front right consolle is done. It's missing only small details and the electric actuator for the canopy which will be done at a later stage.
    In the middle of a clean up pass I discoverd some of the mesh had somewhat inherited a different scale. Turned out a lot of pieces were affected and a good amount of time was spent fixing the mess. I almost cried.

    BTW, exactly 5 years ago cockpit_00 was first saved, now it's cockpit_331.:yikes:

    And a happy birthday to you! You do have some way to catch another modeller who was in the 900s when finished...

    That is some awesome work, and that little coiled cord is really spiffy! :cool:

    That is without counting 148 iterations for the old external and 54 for the new one, Tom. I feel I'm well on my way to reach that number!:D

    Thanks Bill! Sure is spiffy but for the life of me I couldn't find a way to maintain the same radius of the cord throughout the coils. Once my helix was lofted to the main path it all went south.:banghead:

    Be thankful you don't have to bone-animate it! The KingAir 350i yokes have a coiled cord running from the main panel to the yokes and had to be bone-animated. That was a stone cold b*tch to get working more or less properly! :rotfl:

    This aircraft is truly a work of art and an engineering marvel.

    Hey Sergio, what have you been up to lately? Showroom forum without a thread of yours is not the same!

    After seeing your outstanding work, mine would be a "stain" in this brilliant website. Unfortunately, things are going slowly in my side... lack of inspiration I guess. On the other side, doing some basic coding for some gauges. Thanks for your kind words and hopefully, I will have something worth to show to you soon.

    Keep up the amazing work my friend.
    All the best,
    Sergio.
    :D
