The Roster...

Well, finally finished the last planned paint scheme today, which brings the total up to 10, an acceptable number to ship with in my opinion. Man that was a lot of work.

In my picassa gallery I always end up showing just one or two of them in screenshots from testing, and so just for fun here's the entire family posing together. There may be one or two more paints on the way, but this is the guaranteed lineup for the package.

Bonne Anniversaire Albatros...

I realized this morning that the L-39 project is officially one year old as of today... drew the first polygon on April 8th last year. Wild. Happily the end is clearly in sight and not far off now. :)

She's come a long long way... 150,000+ polygons built, 100+ textures painted, 300+ parts animated, 7000+ lines of code written, 454.6 hours of testing flown, and at *least* 900 cups of coffee consumed. What a year.

Mustangs for breakfast...

... with salsa.

Pipsqueak has finally joined the roster, a seriously fun variant to build (over the course of 28 hours without sleep haha) and she's one fast machine... the fastest L-39 in the world actually. Oh did your archaic Victorian era steam engine fail while trying to catch me? Aww... poor little P-51. So sad. ;)
