    I have made a decision....I have decided to put aside the project that was consuming all my time (mentally as well as some portion of my free time); which was the project that was for the job and return to this and another project that need to be finished. I've wasted far too much time on it and had to take it back to square one.

    I have started work on the landing gear so look for pics soon.

    landing gear in my Wings over europe talon(Zur-TECH Home) mod has some resemblance of its main gears to that of the F-18 hornet.

    though it has a single wheel nosegear, but in the movie, the nose gear looks like the ones typically used on carrier aircraft, like the F-18


    if yuo dont have time and intellect enough for this project, why dont you choose someone to work on this while you rest a bit?

    I think you may have mis-understood Bill, he said he put aside the other project "for the job" to work on this. The "this" being the Talon FA-37..least that's the way I interpet it....
    best,

    Excellent! design work Bill, :thumb:

    Its certainly one slick looking craft... ~ It would wreck your day if something like this really came over the horizon looking for you (that's if you even realised it).. pity, they'll probably cut the pilots outs out of nose eventually...or VR at best.

    OT
    Reminds me of a AVN joke ~ In the future all Aircraft cockpits will only seat One man and a Dog..

    * The Man is there to feed the dog
    * The Dog is there to bite the man if he tries to touch anything..!!!

    Nemo is correct, I set aside "the job" project to work on the Talon and a few other things. I already have the landing gear designed and am starting to build it (two wheel nose gear, BTW).

    Looking forward to your new updates. How are you going to feel when it's finally done?

    Thanks, Dan, I am working on the landing gear assembly tonight (finally!). Also started drawing panel lines on the prototype.
    Hope to have pics soon. It will be for sale, but this one is not going to be easy and will definitely need thorough instructions (I think I already posted that last part).

    ARMORMAN, your amount of dedication and attention to detail on this ship is amazing. I personally want to thank you for your hard work. You, my friend, a paper warrior!

    Paraphrasing Iron Man:" I like the model you only have to design ONCE. That's the way dad did it, that's the way America does it....and it's worked out pretty well so far....."

    Thanks. :)
