Man howard, there isn't even a point in telling you your work is awesome anymore because I'm sure you've heard it too many times. Good job anyway. Thanks for your contributions to the community.
Great! Thanks all for the kind words. Also, I like the paint job ideas submitted so far, but I get the feeling some of them might be rather difficult to pull of, given that the Scimitar doesn't have the standard aeroplane layout - no tail.
So I feel like I need to provide a quicky update here...And I have some interesting news!
So on the Scimitar, I'm still working on it, but I'm neck deep in crunch time right now at work - with any luck, though, I should have pretty much the entire month of December off, and I should be able to easily wrap it up then. Not sure how much will get done between now and then, but I will try and get the landing gear started.
Now for the interesting news: I was out drinking with some guys from the office a week ago, and the subject of Wing Commander came up. I mentioned all the stuff Joel and I have been doing, and Marc Schaefgen (currently working with us here in Eugene, after flying up from Austin) expressed some interest in doing some sound work for the game...That's right, the original sound guy from WC1/2 and numerous other Origin games has an interest in this.
I was estatic. Now, obviously nothing's written in stone, and nothing has been agreed upon, but I thought this was cool enough to share. I showed him the Scimitar this morning, and he got all nostalgic.
And I'm sorta nerding out right now, you'll have to forgive me.
Anyhow, thanks for all the feedback guys, I'll try and do the old girl justice.

Isn't Pioneer set before the Sabre becomes available, anyway? IIRC we're only going to be seeing pre-WC2-era vessels.
