    Well, I'm glad to see you still working on this. I'm sorry I didn't get it into FSX or FS9, but I think it is good to wait for MS Flight. I just think the aircraft have too much potential to waste on the current versions. Perhaps when Flight debuts, I will start on a good version.

    I think the version I gave you last was too poly heavy anyway ill make a lighter version of the search and rescue for you when its done.

    Some quick tests on the samson navy version, toying with the idea of getting rid of the landing skids and have a tricycle arrangement with retractable undercarriage similar to the sea king.

    It looks incredible.
    And to be honest, i think landing gear might just be a waste of space when the skids do a very good job already.
    But nevertheless, i would love to see it with gear...

    Very nice, it will be intresting to see it with the landing gear.

    Yeah, I would go with a landing gear as opposed to skids, at least for this version...though if it were me, I'd use gears on all the versions. But that's just me. Since this is the Navy version, have you thought about including a larger sensor package on the belly, similar to the Seahawk? That would definitely help make it stand out from appearing as if it's just another variant with a different color scheme.

    Regardless of all that though, it's really a great looking model and certainly an impressive demonstration of what Sketchup can do.

    Thought ist probably a good idea to finish one version before I start altering and making more work for myself!
    Anyway same version just with rocket pods instead of extra tanks.

    Looking good mate. I take it that there will be another row of seats facing away from the cockpit?
  • liam887liam887245 SwedenPosts: 565Member
    No, six seats along the back wall and then two seats either side facing inwards on each other, making a total of ten. There is also a bench in the middle that can accomodate four although they wont be strapped in.
    Generally it will carry 10 soldiers with all their gear and four crew. I may make some other versions in the futre such as medivac/S&R but for now am concentrating on these two.
