I'm just a Flightgear user :), I've been teaching myself 3D modeling and hope to eventually complete an aircraft. In the past ( since about 2002 ) I've tried large aircraft and never finished because of their complexity. I've decided to start a smaller ( hopefully) simpler aircraft to learn with with the goal of completing it then moving on to more ambitious projects.
(8/20/2012) added wings flaps and ailerons, rear and front doors.
