    Getting a bit bogged down now, got a few kits on the go but this is the first part build to see if it goes together (it does, badly) Can you tell what it is yet?

    Hey Janx,

    Your model looks Fantastic from here, what's wrong with It??

    It's a great deal better that the one I already have which I haven't built because It didn't look so good.

    I would love a copy of your's when you finish It Please.

    Sincerely

    Tom :wave:

    It's just size/fit issues. Made the engines today and after some fiddling they went together ok, will post images when the camera decides to work again. Will post a PDO model when it's all done (textures too).

    ya know chances are good on that smartgroups model that he got his information using my drawing from many years back featured on both Craig Thomas's page as well as Kurt 's Thinkinrussian page..
    Best,

    :wave:Well buddy If the smartgroups model was based on your earler drawings then It was off to a fairly accurate start.

    As you are The Autority on the Firefox, Will, If you would consider sharing your drawings with the guys then a truly definitive model could be built in card.

    Sincerely

    this is looking pretty sharp, but a few things you need to address. In the intake area, the bottom intakes have an angled shape to the front of em not parallel to the rears. Second,your nose area which actually isnt bad at all....need to re-angle your cockpit side canopy area to describe this is tricky but you have too much flat area at the base where the nose facets all interface...email incoming...:)
    Sincrerly,
    Will

    Ta for the email will, hmm a complete rebuild is probably in order (in progress as we speak) but may put out a low poly pdo version soon based on this one, can't post an image of it complete as the camera is once again dead, stupid thing is less consistent than me (and thats saying something). Working on very basic textures for this one.

    Ahah!
    dvd screen grabs....lol I got lots of these.. Adam did em for me a while back but only used em for the cockpit scenes and missile bays for the model. I found that side shots of the plane aren't really usable, due to paralax and stuff....great news is that Janx and I are talkin bout Fiefox :)

    Ok this is as far as version 6 got, version 7 is thanks to Will's fantastic input. I will sort the textures first and put out a beta for those willing to try and make sense of the mess I make. Scale will be approx 1/72nd

    Things are back to normal here, sorry for the delays, my daughter was I'll and she is far more important than even this. V7 3d model is complete, it still isn't totally right but I could worry it to death if I keep fiddling with it. Just converting it to PDO now and finishing the textures.

    wow, that's really looking good now... not that it didn't already, but that rear view looks awesome... I'll definitely be wanting to build this one now.
