It's been a long haul but all the mesh creation and parts is now finished for the Sopwith Snipe.
I've started UV Mapping and then comes the texture art. It will be a while yet.
I can't say when the Snipe will be released. The CFS3 version will be first. As for FS X there is still no documentation pertinent to aircraft modeling and export in the final product. We have some cool tools for 3DS Max 7/8 and no documentation on how to use them to create fully featured FS X aircraft using the new material and animations systems.
Here are a couple of pics. These will be the last I'll post of the Snipe until it is textured.
