    This is my next model in Modern Series, Boeing V-22 Osprey...The V-22 Osprey is a joint service, multi-mission military aircraft with vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capability. It is designed to perform VTOL missions like a conventional helicopter while also having the long-range cruise abilities of a twin turboprop aircraft. Doing mesh in Rhino is finish, I will post another progress soon.

    Good Choice!

    Hi Nobi,

    The Osprey is a great choice! It's been a very contoversial aircraft for the USMC but they've hung by this vehicle through thick and thin. Guess the Command sees it as a crucial piece of their strategic mission. Please keep us posted regarding your progress...., -Gil

    Thank you very much :)

    I plan to design wing what can rotate but not finish yet, today I nearly finish unfold V-22. Not many parts infold but I believe all parts will assemble to very good looking model. I will finish all unfold tomorrow and testbuild next.

    I'd say it would be a bit easier for Nobi since he is selling his own models which have almost no overhead. He does'nt rely on shipping or purchasing from a another party a package to sell at an above cost price to make profit.

    His only out of pocket should be his time, software cost and site maintenance if I am right.

    Hey John John............. since it was designed for the Marines to fit on Navy ships it had to be made to fit below decks for repair and storage. Not sure of the unfold times but it's pretty fast. I saw a vid somewhere on it.

    It really is a hybrid between helo and plane and a pretty neat looking aircraft.


    I can't wait................ THANKS Nobi!

    Anybody else find that as painful to watch as I did? That almost made me sick. Maybe it's just the new perspective I have of being a pilot but man that was sad.
