This mesh is looking for a modder to take it to completion. I've significantly reduced the vertex count from ~65000 to ~13000. The things that are left: Animation, cockpit instruments, painting.

Just a note: The blender file has some textures applied to the mesh from the Original Model.

Suggested Path Forward:
  • Finish Editing the base mesh to your liking
  • Export to DNM (the current one included is old)
  • Import new DNM into Blender (To completely get rid of the textures)
  • Animate (I have done nothing towards this so it will be animation from scratch!)
  • Paint (May need some decals, See the original model (blender file) for an example paint scheme)
  • Make DAT (Ask some airshow ppl for suggestions if you get lost. Remember this is supposed to be a trainer and relatively stable)
  • Release awesomeness

I'm struggling to get the propeller to rotate correctly. It keeps wanting to turn on the Z axis like a screw. Can someone help me with this. I got all the other surfaces moving properly.

Lay the prop on the Y axis right on the center for the SRF. Then in DMNViewer move and rotate the prop to the right position and it should rotate properly.
