Why does it look more like an Embraer to you?
The nose gear is positioned right where Omega left it. All I did was extend the fuselage a bit. Now I'm fixing things up.
Nice job.

There's a side view.

THe nose is so long... :P

Which model should we use? :D

About the gear - it's in the right place, for the -8.

The nose does look long :)

I don't care really, but I'd prefer to change the old one, than have to manually edit the thousands (!!!) of animations.

No, I didn't actually do much - only thing you have to do now is the gear and wheels, and the liveries.

In that case, I'll edit the wheels right now and push.
You can fly it already:

Want commit access?
If you would like to use your model, please do it in a new branch, so we can compare the two models.

Hi Martien
That would be nice. However, the plane needs some work before liveries can be made, since we have to move the nose wheel bay forward, and do a new UVMAP.
I'll let you know when we're ready for liveries!
Best wishes,
Jonathan

Ha! Looks like I need to do something which hides the nosegear if you are in cockpit view. Need to cut a new gear door too...

I. Have. No. Idea. How. To. Use. Github.

Can you do it? :P

Oh, I can't see your picture, but I assume it's...KLM? :D

Thanks for the UV mapping offer. :P

Ah yeah I can see that picture! I love that livery - the beautiful curve downward is pretty much the prettiest livery in the (real) skies.

And the 777-8X and 9X, and A330NEO, and...etc etc etc. :D

Certainly the -10, but I'll be leaving the 777 to the Seattle Team, I think :)
And probably the A330NEO will come later, when the A330NEO comes.
As for your model:
The gears aren't animating.
The 'chrome' bit at the tailcone is wrong; too far back on the x axis.
The chocks need moved.
The nosegear doors need moved.

I'm not sure, I of course vote for my model, and you for yours.

Could I call someone else in to help us? Someone?
