Default Louis56 - Winter Challenge

My first ever simply maya challenge.

This one is Microlight Sports Aircrafts. I used to fly tecnams but because there are no blueprints of them, I am modelling a Cessna.

FLY!! ON YOUR WAY!!! LIKE AN EAGLE. FLY TOWARDS THE SUN!!

Thats lyrics to Flight of the Icarus by Iron Maiden who I am going to see in Feb 2008!!

Maybe I shall do it in the sun with some birds. Post some ideas and I'll choose the best one. Or the most popular.

looks good, tastes good, smells good.., but those props look like popsicle sticks.., im sure its a detail you were going to get to.

cessna..?? maybe add one of those early german turbines on the top.., the one from the 'peoples plane' the german last resort as the russkies entered Berlin.., forget the name of the plane but thats it in english as' Volkswagon' means 'people's car.' bueatiful looking plane it was.., very functional
