I've finally sent the MiG-33 pending approval from Dision for final tweaks and release.
I've also fixed the panel lines on the MiG-35 after much head-scratching. Turns out the way YS renders 4 vertex polygons can be different the way Blender interprets them, making a face have different curvatures in either program. This caused the panel lines to show up in Blender but not YS. I had to mess around with the order of the faces on the wings to get it to work.

New cockpit to match as well.

Might want to release that pack. It will be quite a long wait for new DC-10s, as I intend to let my OCD-ness go about again (ie spend lots of time perfecting it).

I managed to recover this final version I sent to DD-Destroyer.

Totally understand your need for perfection with the DC-10s and understand 'abandoning' them and starting over. I did the same thing with the NG 737s, but I was able to re-use a few things like the cockpit instrument panel. I hope you will have some components that you can re-use to make life a little easier! :D

I decided to try and make both YS and Blender agree on the curvature of the wings of the MiG-35 again as I didn't quite like the previous curvature (more concave than convex). I attempted to do so for the whole of the last morning, and gave up after much cursing, swearing and anger. I gave it a second go that afternoon and worked somehow, so I went with that.
I also gave the MiG-35 a new paint scheme.
Image
The 35D is in the background, a tandem seater variant.
Image
The panel lines work well now.

I have also found a very useful DC-10 resource here: http://www.airlinercafe.com/page.php?id=392, providing fine little details between production variants. This is very helpful, but adds a further level of complexity to the project, especially with the fairings (which I got wrong in my released Boneyard DC-10s) and horizontal stabiliser LERXs, given that these fine little variants are not known under official variant numbers. I need some help with this, as I do not know which to make to be an accurate representation of real life DC-10s while also not being too workload-heavy.

The MiG-29K and KUB have finally been done.
Image
This time, it's an Indian and Russian. Similar to the MiG-35, the K is a single seater while the KUB is a tandem seater. The wings fold as well. These will replace the 9-31 airframe in the current HQPGAC pack.
I will release these in the coming days.

After toiling for about 5 hours on this, the HQPGAC F-15C Eagle now has a blank model. decaff put me in charge of making one after he decided he wasn't really up to the job and he and a few others had always wanted HQPGAC Eagles. It's kinda odd, really, given my usual dislike of American aircraft, but I took it up. He had given me models that he had worked on, so I went ahead and improved the C first, such as recolouring the strobe and anti collision lights, and then redo-ing the entire suite of panel lines.
Image
I've probably done a better job at shrinkwrapping these panel lines than on my MiGs.
Image
The gear doors now work well; these took me 1 to 2 hours to panel, cut out and animate.
Soon, a cockpit and other variants!

Looking great. Cant wait for these!
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.

Now I feel like a child playing in the sandbox next to the professional artist. :o

This looks beautiful...Are you thinking about the D and E models as well or just the C?

Put the finishing touches for the blank F-15C. Changes include intake shadowing, more powerful strobe and anti-collision lights (ZL), a new HUD and cockpit, plus panelling for the air to air refuelling port.

I am still in the midst of tweaking the dat from the GAC dat.

Thanks for the compliment. :) I will be doing all the major variants, including the A and B. I will also be doing the E variants, the -I, -SA, -K and -SG.

@Alpha I have tweaked the MiGs a little more, so I will send them to you soon after more extensive testing.
@Kujo I better get started on that Talon.
The DC-10 has been put on hold for now, mainly because of these HQPGAC things but also partly because somebody decided to disregard my words about my old DC-10s... :x

also IMO you guys should have more appreciation for ruskie aircraft, tho the fact that most of you guys are american makes it more understandable :?

I've done up the dat for the F-15C and D, and from here I'm assuming that externally, the A and C, and separately the B, D and E models are identical. With that assumption I have completed all the blanks for all the F-15s (except the E, which has tanks but no biggie), and I can move on with paint schemes.
Image
This is probably the quickest conversion I've had to tackle. A new pilot and a new cockpit in under an hour (while camping on TS).
Image
The F-15C also has the beginnings of a new scheme.

Don't forget the F-15ASAT that would bring down enemy spy satellites.
