Hey everyone! This is still a work in progress and there is lots of work to be done but I thought I would show off a few shots of the custom buildings I am working on for Ft. Worth Alliance Airport (KAFW). I've already been working on this for a few months (in my spare time which is VERY limited) and I am happy so far with the results. I have never done any 3d modeling before so I'm pretty happy that things have turned out looking fairly good. I know this is probably not the quality of someone who has spent years as a developer but I am pretty impressed with the ease of using Google Sketchup to make models for FSX. The buildings are using photo textures which were all taken from outside the airport. I had to use some serious photoshop editing to make some sides of the buildings that I had no photos for and I'm pretty happy with the results...I now have an intimate relationship with the clone tool!
Anyway I thought I'd post a few shots even though this is far from finished and I'd love to hear any comments. This will be a freeware project and it is far from finished and will probably still take at least a few more months with the amount of time that I have to work on it...I haven't actually flown FSX in over 3 months now. I'll try to post more updates here as I get farther along. The modeling only becomes more difficult...I started with the easier buildings! Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy!
