Trumpetguy will do you proud! He is a master when it comes to setting up files for Real Flight. You will swear you are flying the real airplane right on your computer.

It is especially cool when he does a model with your own scheme! I cant wait! I will download this version!!

Thanks for the "endorsement" Bill! Glad you've liked stuff I've done for ya before! I'll start on this one. Might take me a bit but I'll let you all know how it's going.

If you did the first 50% BH edge on RealFlight you're a frigging master. If it really flies like that I'll sell all my other planes and buy one! It's basically all I play with on there.

How does one get a hold of Hempel? I could not find a phone number on his web site, so emailed him.......no response, I see he posted here though.

I ordered it that way from Bill. I put it together last fall and got fourteen flights on it before the snow started flying. I had the first version and it had many flights on it before I decided to sell to get the new version. I can't see my self without one. I'm not sure how much I will get to fly it this season. I have been diagnosed with Lymphoma and now going through chemo. I am hoping to get this behind me and get some flying in.

Hope the chemo and everything goes well for you so you can get back to flying!!! In the mean time, I will try and get you that color scheme done so you can fly it on your Realflight sim!

One favor if possible... Is there any chance you could get me a pic looking directly at the top of a wing and a stab? That would make getting the scheme right a LOT easier... if not don't worry, I'll get it as close as I can with the pics you've already posted.

Take Care!

Thanks for the reply gargajm. I had 21 flights on my version 1 last year before a tree reached up and grabbed it out of the sky. lol (see pics below) I felt the same way about not having one. I was gonna call it quits but after a week of feeling like my dog got run over by a car (if I had one) I just called Bill and told him to send me Version II. Of course that was financially irresponsible of me since i'm friggin POOR now thanks to our wonderful economy, but at least I've got that plane. lol
Sorry to here about your health issues. Hang in there brother, we need all the giant scale pilots we can get.

That does look great, Really scale , nice exhaust

Thanks For the compliment! After all, isn't part of the reason we build these things to get praise from our peers? lol
