With encouragement from N2056 and Milton Schupe, I have taken the plunge into the dark side of modeling. Gmax, a cantankerous beast that will bite back at any time, without reason.

My feble attempts to re-create the Aeronca "K" for FSX/ P3D.
Off to a good start. http://sdrv.ms/12ax9vC

Very nice. I would encourage you to compile into the SIM periodically as you go, rather than waiting to the "end" and finding something catastrophic going on.
 
Thanks fellas.

Modeling (so far) is more or less a piece of pie. At this standpoint anyway.
Mapping this sucker is my current hurdle. :p

Tom has also been very helpful in my endeavors.
Thanks, Tom.

Addict!!!!! Soon, you will have 4 inch long fingernails, gigantic eyebrows that resemble balls of iron wool or dish scrubber steel. You will sometimes miss daytime, waking up and finding that the sun is just going down as you have been in the screen all day.

The list goes on.... :S



Nice looking engine!

I also agree, make lots of test models. That really helps you to sculpt it as you go. Take breaks too, as when you get back, you'll see if you were going in a correct direction, all parts being the correct size and scale, etc.

Compared to other stuff going on in life, I find doing MSFS stuff rather relaxing.

It does, however, lead to a shifted sleep cycle. With all its consequences. (Two, three grey hairs...at 26.)
