    That is a really pretty airplane. I would have loved to have flown that. You have a winner there!

    I hope that geometry fans or not will like a Apollonian cone , as the one seen in the Agora movie.
    Check the download section.

    That movie sounds really good, I wonder why missed it. You would think it would be on TV by now? Thanks for the cone. As a former machinist and tool and dye maker, and blah blah blah, I love this kind of stuff too!


    I humbly ask, what is your final intention with this beautiful plane you are making? It is quite a pleasure to behold?

    Also, as a Rhino user myself, I am most impressed by your ability to have grasped and turned you thoughts into reality! Very inspirational!

    The model will be free and it's designed in Sketchup not Rhino, altrough some times I use Rhino.

    Then I'm even more impressed!! I'd like to invest time in Sketchup but it's hard enough with Rhino, getting older doesn't help either. This is a great gift to the modeling community!

    I believe that Sketchup it is easyier to use but Rhino is much more precise.

    Has anyone tried to do lofting and skinning like Dragos did for this model in Blender?

    I didn't use Blender, that's Sketchup Google.

    Dragos did such a nice job on this model, I'm not sure what would be gained, but hey, what ever turns you on! :)

    Sorry, Dragos - I meant I was wondering if I could use the same technique in Blender. I use Linux, and Sketchup hasn't been released for it yet (although I may be able to use it under Wine). I've been playing with Blender on and off for years.
