Still Beavering Away.... freeware FSX projects

Just a quick note to say that while I've been quiet on my blog recently I am still working away on a number of 3D meshes of various aircraft.

Recently worked on models, include - Junkers D.I, Fokker E.V/D.VIII, Albatros D.Va (all new 2008 mesh), Clerget 9B engine, Oberursel URII engine, Sopwith Baby (all new 2008 rebuild), Sopwith Triplane, Siemens-Halske Sh.III engine, SSW D.III and of course Sopwith Snipe. I also plan to start on a Fokker D.VI before the week is out. I'll wait until the models are at an advanced stage before showing them in my blogs or forums. At this stage, as long as health issues don't intrude, I hope to start releases by late April 2008 at least. All will be freeware. I have to be careful with my leg and avoid sitting long times.

Hopefully I will be able to update to a DX10 graphics card in the next few weeks and then I can work on making cockpit shadows work in FSX DX10 preview mode.

I've mentioned many of these aircraft before, but most with the exception of the SSW D.III and Sopwith Snipe have been started afresh this year.
