Thanks for the birthday greetings Funk and Christian.
Being a hobby, I build what I want when I want, so there are others tucked away that have not been worked on in years, and others that are being worked on and off when I feel the need.
The TriStar was going to be kept under wraps and announced when it was completed, but since today is my birthday, and the TriStar is my favourite aircraft, I made the decision yesterday to preview it. I'm actively working on it until the main model (the most detailed LOD) is complete. Then I'm texture converting for the DC-8-61 whilst is being tested (still need more help for that, apply here!)
The 500 should be fun as well along with the freighters.
Just what I needed. I thought I had seen something at FFDS, but assumed it was XML. The FFDS forum does not like me now, so can't log in, and the search does not work, so thanks for pointing me on the easy way to do the tiling bogies. I already have the compressed gear so adding this was not to difficult.
Not as much as in the try out picture. If you find a landing shot when the wheels have just touched down, you will see the tilt. I'm using the books Airliner Tech Vol 8, and Airlife's Airlines Vol 2 along with several other picture books for reference, along with some hard to get drawings. A good photo, that is not difficult to find is of ship 1 tail dragging during testing, and you will the tilt on the bogies. This is what I was trying to replicate, but for some reason it will not let me use a small amount of rotation. Large no problem, small = compile failure.
Still, when I do a 747, I know how to do the bogies
