Few more screenshots of the Lighting II
F-35A for FSX - external modeling is almost done
A preliminary flight model is in place - and seems to work fine, provided that, of course, some of the data are estimated.
Most animations are implemented and seem to work correctly.
A couple of sleepless nights (for wrong reasons) meant significant progress in F-35 modeling. Outer model is almost done - everything is modeled,textured and animated with the exception of the weapon bays, the refuel receptacle and the special effects. Work on the virtual cockpit is just started - but modeling shoud not take much time as the F-35 'pit is extremely simple from the geometric point of view.
