After a brief consultation, our team has decided that because of the release of Samen’s excellent A330-200 and his plans to eventually build the entire A330/A340 fleet, it is no longer necessary or productive to continue our work on our A330 or our plans to build the A340 series. However, we are hard at work on a new project. It’s a little something we’re calling “Project Old-School Airbus.” That’s all I'm going to tell you. I’ll post photos when it’s near completion.

Ok well since I know I know it will be awesomePosted Image. Also I feared that you might ditch your A330 if I was to release mine. However since I have learnt alot our new of animating due to this project I will love to animate atleast some of it.

Yes indeed, it is the A300/A310. Posted Image But that's all I'm going to say. As for the release date, it could be tomorrow...could be a year from now. However, we can assure you that it will be well worth the wait! Posted Image

Hopefully, it will be done by then. But we'll have a new project without a doubt. I look forward to your return! Posted Image

You have to zip up a PIA repaint, saw it blocking the taxiway and then it ran away after seeing my B743 coming to gobble it up.


Nice model btw. Cant wait to animatePosted Image

Well, I'm hoping our initial release will occur long before then, but I'd imagine an update would be in order once you begin working for us Posted Image

Just remember that I will have some many side projects going onPosted Image.

e.g A330-200 completion
A330-300
A340-200
A340-300
A340-500
A340-600
A332F
B707 and another project that will be announced in due time.

EDIT: The 707 is something I am very unsure of, I would think that the entire A330/A340 fleet would take about 1.5 months to animate. So I am sure I will have alot of time for you guysPosted Image

Our team can help with any of those side projects (or even start the flight models for you). After all, we were planning on doing the A330/A340 series...Posted Image

How do you feel about editing the current Flightmodel into an Airbus A330-300 and the Airbus A340-600 flightmodel into all other variants

I'll see what I can do. Actually, it would be easier to edit the A330-200/300 flight model into the A340-200/300 and then make another model for the A340-500/600, since the older A340 uses very similar wings/airfoils as the A330 (by contrast, the newer A340-500/600 is essentially a brand new airplane).
