Being caught up in all this new works, I forgot about the MiG.

Then, for some reason or another, I decided to continue where I left off.

Flaps and afterburners are done.

On another note...

Ailerons are done.
Image

Currently working on the gears, where, like in my sketch, has a hydraulic system as the gear is split in two parts. As I cannot animate each part separately, I have to make do with a simple, one-shot animation.

Landing lights are done.
Image
Also done are the fiendishly difficult to animate rudders.
A unique problem was that the engines were blocking the path of the rudders, so I cut them in two and animated them as followed:

Don't worry. I do read yours. It's just that I don't reply much.
But I say I'm impressed so far. :P

That's really clever. My hat off to you for solving the problem. I don't think I've seen another rudder like that. :D

Gave the MiG-33 a new shade of paint with a new pair of afterburners.
Image
Plus some decals.
Image
And managed to get one gear working.
Image
The detail FSX modders actually put into their models just stuns me. :shock:

As for the MiG-31X...

Pylons and gear lights are done.
Image
Now time to figure out the hardpoints before moving on to the UPEO and pink variants... :mrgreen:

-- Wed Dec 18, 2013 3:27 pm --

The UPEO variant paint is done.
It was surprisingly easy to do. I got it done within an hour or so.
Image
I haven't really figured the hardpoints out though.

Figured out the hardpoints (finally).
Image

And behold!

The *ahem* manliest *ahem* MiG of them all!
Not yet... Wait for it... Soon... Image
Yea it's pink.
Image
Remember her?
Image I left the pylons there for an upcoming WPNSHAPE tutorial.

However, this may be the last post about my mods for this year as I am leaving for a holiday in Korea and I don't see any other days in which I have time to mod.
Well, fingers crossed.

Very nice I liked what you did with the spoilers there! ;)
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Finally complete.
The *ahem* manliest MiG ever to soar the skies! :lol:
Image
Image
Wowe
such pink
very cockpit
Image
Image
Flowers on both sides.

The dnm file is rather large at 1.07MB, twice as large as the other 2 planes. I reckon it's due to the large number of polka dots and stars. :lol: I won't be slimming it down.

This project is finally complete. Now I can turn my attention to the HQPGAC standard MiGs and other projects such as the TARDIS.

I may also enter these aircrafts into Gunny's contest.

I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

Lol actually I realised that it isn't complete.
  1. Smoke gens aren't there yet (both dat and dnm)
  2. Some stuff aren't sorted out yet.
ReverseFate wrote:Will they be released?
Soon.

But meh,

I have already started work on the HQPGAC MiG-15.
Image
Image
I still need to find a suitable cockpit file.
Image
Some engine shadowing that I added, I don't know why. :lol:

-- Mon Dec 23, 2013 2:13 pm --

Added a cockpit file based on this image:
Image
Image
And landing lights.
Image

However, that will most likely be the last thing I'll be doing for modding this year. I'll see if I can cram in a bit of modding tomorrow before my flight, and I'll post it here.
If not, then, have a happy New Year. :)

The MiG-15 is finished (actually was done 1 week ago).
Image
Image
I have already started on the HQPGAC MiG-29 before I left, and since I came back today, I've spent a couple of hours on it.
Image
Much panel lines
Image
Very engine shadowing
Both of these models are based on 2ch GAC aircraft.

Fixed the shadowing issues caused by Edgesplit (it caused normal smoothed faces to become blockish)
Image
Also finished the cockpit, both exterior and interior.

Gave the MiG a new paint scheme.

Plus arresting hook.
