    I figure if there's any place where I can go to get a plane ID'd, it's here!

    Was the pilot by any chance a very attractive blonde?

    I'm guessing the red struts shown in the original photos would be stowed away in the fuselage prior to flight, but that's just a guess. If true, that could simplify animation since they wouldn't need to even be seen until the wings are fully folded back.

    In the original photo, there are two red struts. One is short and horizontal, and holds the wing at the folded angle as you say. The other is vertical, and is on the folded portion holding the wing segments, presumably to add the strength missing without being latched to the fixed portion that has the fixed upright. What I'm saying is that the fixed upright on the model is depicted on the folding portion instead of the fixed portion as shown in the photo.

    There's one discrepancy that I've noticed between your model and the photos. You have an upright on the front inside corner of the folding section, which actually appears to be on the outside front corner of the fixed portion. I've put red on the portion I'm talking about. The actual red struts in the photos appear to be supports to keep the wing structure from being damaged when the wings are folded.

    When you set up your flight plan, make sure that the flight altitude is set to what you want there.

    Willy, I get the same thing adding scenery in W7. When you hit the OK button and it just opens the folder, hit the Back arrow and the dialog will close and your new layer will be in the Scenery Library list.

    Nice find! Great work on this one by ORBX and Frank Dainese - worth the large download size IMHO! And the price is right too! :applause: Downloaded it via Google Drive and it didn't take long at all despite the 1.2GB size. LOL at the Close Encounters references here! :biggrin-new:
