    A mesh, in Rhino? Hmmm, better to work in surfaces and only generate a mesh when you are finished. Rhino isn't a mesh modeller, although in v4 you can do boolean operations between meshes and meshes, or meshes and surfaces, although you always end up with a mesh. v3 has more limited mesh tools.

    OK, youse guys.....I agree that the cammo pattern is colorful and unique....but on the other hand you can use the Red River silver to make a nice little silver delta wing Russian fighter with the Soviet version....
    Make them both!:rofl: ....Bob out....

    In 1977, I had the pleasure of flying from West Berlin to Ramstein AB in West Germany in a C-130. Along with flying over "SAM barns" in corridor, at one point, an East German MiG-21 did a bit of reconnaissance escort duty for a few minutes.

    At that time I didn't know the various models of MiG-21, but do remember the camouflage on it. Very much like the shown here, except a bit darker browns. After it flew off, I went to the cockpit and mentioned it to the pilot who told me there were two on each side about a half mile out. I only saw the one, but it was still interesting.

    This is one I will definitely be looking forward to.
