to build the aircraft i use ABACUS FS DESIGN STUDIO it's really buggy and a major pain to use but i havent found anything else it take's me a couple of months to build a plane from scratch but once you have parts built up like landing gear its alot quicker.

no unfortunately thats one of the really hard bits you have to assign texture files to all parts of the model
e.g. one picture to cover the tail and another to cover the wings etc.

i would say that it is not worth £30 and if anyone knows of a better program i would love to know, as i really struggle with all the bugs this software has it is really dificult to produce anything out of the ordanry like the vulcan wing shape you have to make it out of lots and lots of bits ~x( :((

i have found a replacement for FSDS and best of all its free :D i am going to try GMAX i will post my atempts in a couple of weeks
