Some WIP hi-res Lighting II screenshots
Above are some screenshots of the F-35 AA-1 taken while I was testing the flight model. It is pretty hard to tell if it is "right", as, obviously, Lockheed Martin test pilots keep on saying it is an oustanding aircraft with excellent performance and maneuverability... but on the other hand, many "experts" in the internet are extremely critical on the plane performance - and the whole JSF project (I guess some of that hate comes from the fact that the F-35 will replace the F-16 which is an extremely successful and popular model)...
Anyway, I am pretty happy with the flight model. It needs some work but it is a good start.
The cockpit is suffering some delay... but I think it will be ready in 2-3 weeks.
