Wow, that kinda blows my mind... I'll bet the original Microsoft FS (FSX or whatever) and the CFS series all used the same aircraft rendering... Amazing that nobody built an external rendering program. Of course, perhaps OBD has upped the ante with it's method of modeling the plane, I don't know.
But I speak of that which I have little knowledge of. Mike, while I was here I clicked to peruse some of your models again... just amazing. It was all I could do to get a pre-painted Saturn V together last winter!
