Gmax. Good luck trying to figure it out. Some of the best freeware planes you see out there such as POSKY and IFDG take months and months and thousands of hours to create. It's pretty tough to make one from what I understand. But I'd say if ya have time and wanna give it a whirl, try Gmax.

Its really hard. If you can figure it out it will still take months atleast the first time. Dont have much info.

I think there's a tutorial included, for how to create a spitfire. So I suggest you do that one first.

It takes a while to learn how to do this sort of thing... I'd go to http://sgair.net, http://ifdg.net or http://projectopensky.com and ask them how on their forums... they might be able to aid.

I've been playing with gmax for over 2 years now and am still figuring it out. It's really an AMAZING program (can't believe it's free!) once you get to know it. I'm working on a project which I hope to sell as a way to help pay for college, but I'm not releasing any details to anyone in an effort to give me the freedom of deciding when and how I want to work on it. Just start out making boxes and cylinders...play with animations...you'll get the hange of it.

There is also a program from Abacus (http://www.abacuspub.com) called FSDS2, that is easier to use. Of course, you have to buy it, and IMO, it's not as powerful as gmax. If you're willing to work at it, gmax is the tool to use.  Big grin
