    Uncle Milton, this is one airplane that will make up a lot of flight time in my book! Thanks for doing the E-1 first! Look forward to it!

    The E-1B is why I originally decided to do this project. It came first because it is the toughest to do. The radome has been a real bear to get right, but the biggest challenge is always the fuselage. You must get the fuselage "face" looking right before going further or it will destroy the whole look. I do spend a lot of time trying to get all the mesh as realistic as possible using the 3-views and RW pictures. I do not have teh gmax skills many have but I am persistent.

    :salute: Simply fascinating to watch this bird taking shape from its concept.

    Gentlemen, Milton's not modelling the aircraft. He's ENGINEERING it!

    Beautiful work indeed...I would put up an icon: the world's entire supply of ouzo, but spose I'd better do it at a later date for obvious reasons!

    (icon:Mr Smoothie's embarresed cough:icon) exterior sounds from ignition to 50%; in the bag.

    From the first post, i think Uncle Milton will do them all. Even with the possibility of the Radial Tanker!

    Milt, She is looking great to me at his point! That radome provided 10% extra lift and we usually did a different movement ( not liked by the stoof LSO's) of the yoke to keep from boltering. Keep up the great work and thanks again.

    That's a very good question, if not a subtle way of request.

    Cheers,

    I have read about the added lift. If you have actual flight experience, we would welcome any input regarding handling characteristics. If you have access or know of books or pilots reports, that information would be helpful in our creation of flight models.

    Thank you

    Looking for pictures of the Engine

    The Wright Cyclone R-1820-82WA - 1,525 hp

    Any angle for reference, but need a straight on shot for design and textures.

    Thanks for the help.

    Thank you Richard. Those are good shots of the engine in the nacelle.

    But, what I seek are pictures of the engine on a stand or outside the nacelle so that I can use it to create an engine texture for the model,similar to the attached picture of the A-26 engine.Attachment 45755

    Stickies are usually reserved for new releases and other special announcements that need to stay at the top even if they haven't had recent replies. This thread doesn't need to be stickied because there's plenty of activity to keep it at the top anyway.
