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.
