    Great progress in a short period of time. This is looking scrumptious. :jump:

    There is a heavy armor protecting plate on the front bulkhead in front of the pilots and panel; it can be seen thru the later glass nosed variants. I thoughe maybe these small side panels were either to protect the ammo cases for the forward guns or were there to support the recoil of the guns in the pods.

    One of the frustrating parts about modeling from 3-views are the inconsistencies on the same authored prints. This shows a comparison of the fuselage modeled to one and compared to the other. Strangely, on the print where the side views do not match up, the top and bottom views do, all on the same print. Of course we must also consider the different size and shaped noses for the variants. I really feel for how tough drawing these 3-views can be, and across top/bottom/left/right/front/rear views.

    Question for you .... Can you identify the purpose of the heavy plates on the sides of the nose section?

    Huub, I have it as well, and think that for a low poly version, for its time, the exterior model actually looks pretty good. But I agree, things have come a long way since computers today can handle much better details and large textures. I am taking my time on this one trying to notch up the exterior a bit in hopes that someone will convert it to FSX native and give it proper treatment there. I'll be a few more days on the fuselage trying to accommodate the variants by ensuring my cross-sections are best placed for the inevitable model changes. I am trying to decide if the best approach would be to do the A-20A/B "turretless" style instead of the G first. It seems more logical to start at the beginning. But populating the nose interior is best left until later. For now, time...

    Jan, I'm always happy to help Jan Splinter through the winter, haha. There's more help in the pipeline. Even going to install FSX again. Getting all exited about this :-)

    One day closer to finishing :-) Spent half of the day working on the front half of the fuselage and the other half with the vertical tail, rudder, and trimtab. Looks about as ratty as the real thing. :-)

    Thank you Sir; I had not seen that particular set, although some of the pics are around the net. Should have known that you were on top of things. :-) I can't but it will be available to do should LDR or someone else choose to do so.

    Back in the old days, everybody had to get out of their seats, get in the car, drive to the local airport to see a new release. Today, we just hang out in our houses around forums awaiting a new release. :-) EDIT: Wait! Isn't that Willy 2nd from the right?

    It's very annoying to wait almost five minutes to load the auto-generated scenery from 69% to 80% before flying. What can cause this? :dizzy: :wavey: Cees

    LOL Huub; that's how I felt when I finally got my desk cleaned off to do this one. :-)

    It has begun; the slow, methodical, pains-taking effort of minutia. LOL This is where one has to be patient, particular, artistic, and critical. Everything else depends on doing this right. So they say ... :-) This will take a few days, pushing and shoving, comparing and adjusting, drinking coffee and eye-balling it.

    Thanks you John for the reference photos; as you know, one can never have too many. Thanks everyone for your interest. I'll see what I can do to get this started.

    Well, finally with the Harpoons, Lodestars, Ventura, the F7F series, and Commander 685 off my desk, I have only the Mallards left to launch (awaiting textures). So, I am already bored and must get my data archive together on the A-20 Havoc, and get serious about modeling. I have been studying my 3-views cross sections and it is frustrating how different they are among different authored prints. We shall overcome this however. I posted a link earlier in this thread to the initial thread on this project and there were some offers made that I would like to see come to fruition.

    Hey Rob, heb je al gezien dat de Aeroplane Monthly een artikel heeft over de Uiver?
    Waarschijnlijk ligt het blad volgende week wel in de winkels.


  5. OK, ik zie 't wel.
    Wat voor concert??
    En de Uiver had pech?

    Hey Rob, foto's van de open dagen komen er hopelijk vanmiddag aan; ik heb ook nog even een concertje vanavond dus niet veel tijd om 1350 foto's uit te zoeken. Show viel wat tegen, aangezien het meeste klassieke spul (Inlcusief de Uiver!) met pech aan de grond stonden. Het weer viel ook wat tegen, vooral de eerste dag. Toch nog flink verbrand, maar ja..
