My final EA's are on the next page, or just follow the link above.  The EA's on this page are incomplete works either pre-release or non-final versions.  Some of my experimental projects will be posted here as well which tests the limitations and the possible types of features to incorporate in a Realflight model such as my 5th generation multiaxis thrust vectoring nozzle.

The B-58 Hustler is my first 3DS Max model for Realflight and is actually my first 3DS Max model period.  It is nearing completion but I have a few things to learn before wrapping everything up.  Dr. Moo is helping set the pivot points and hierarchy and once this is done, plus a couple visual touch-ups on the model, I'll be UV unwrapping this thing for the CS.

The E-Flite 4 Site Micro is my second 3DS Max model for Realflight.  The picture above shows two days worth of work.  It took quite a few hours to make all the little details, but since the model is a flat-out model, there are plenty of polys leftover to play with.

 

It is my goal to make this ultra realistic by having moving parts in/on the servo elements, and also simulate the at-rest linear servo twitches that these models are known for.  I plan on adding a number of other details to this model before I'm done.

This Sky Crane / Air Crane heli model was actually planned to be my second 3DS Max model.  However the E-Flite 4 Site Micro model got in the way and instead of starting this last Friday, I had to wait until Saturday morning.  Bummer....  This model is actually less complex than the E-Flite 4 Site Micro due to the number of small details with electronics and wiring I've added to the 4 Site.  It appears to be far less complex than the B-58 Hustler as well, but as I've learned over the past few weeks since teaching myself how to model, I know looks can be deceiving.

Thrust Vectoring Nozzle Test Model.
This model was created for the sole purpose of testing a fully functional 5th generation thrust vectoring nozzle. The model as a whole is not meant as a complete and final EA, nor does it represent a real world jet. It is a modified fuselage and wings set from my B-58 Hustler model--slightly modified to be somewhat different.

The important aspect of this model was to create a fully articulated and functional thrust vectoring nozzle created of 32 individual segments.
