After all these years building scenery, today was a first for me. I made an airplane! A glider, to be precise, the Schweitzer 2-22 that lives in the grass at Plum Island. It turned out to be simpler than I expected, although it’s a lot less detailed than an actual FS aircraft would be, using photo textures masked the simplicity of it and made it acceptable as scenery.
First, some background. Here’s the real thing parked at 2B2:
I found a small, low-res 3-view drawing that worked okay in Max and started building…
After about 5 hours work (hey, I never said I was fast), the sim version was ready to roll onto the grass at the sim 2B2.
Next up: tractors!
