first attempt I re-did it in Rhino but still have to tweak it. There are too many parts that cause an accrued intolerance. I am going to redesign the construction procedure and eliminate the framework. I am not sure what will be the final procedure as it will evolve (devolve?). It is not finished as my six year old will not put it down so I am going to give it to him and build another one. Billy, if I may be so bold, your model is excellent. Your link is excellent and I am going to use it to model that Ekranoplan. Thanks. I love these things. There was talk of using one for high speed traffic up and down the coast of Long Island, New York for Casino traffic but people here are not progressive enough. Russian aircraft have always fascinated me, they seem to have tried everything and enough credit is not given to them for their contribution to aviation.
