Albatros D.I: Minor 3D corrections

Outcome from my first exercises to learn Gmax ;)

Minor corrections to external 3d model:
Exhaust pipe modified so it doesn't interfear with the centre struts.
Modified shadow, so it matches the 3d model.
Wires and struts adjusted, so they don't go through the wings.
Tested in DBW_1916 and DOF3.

Before:









After:









Credits:
Based on earlier work by: OAW~Magpie, Lisek, GIO and Kant.
Mission_bug for his kind help answering all my Gmax questions.

Download:
I've uploaded the fix to the IL-2 page on my site.

Very cool fixes!
Thank you very much vonOben  8) I like them.
Sometimes it is the litle details which make up for the big impression on an aircrafts good looks.
You did great with the 3d-fixing.

I have a small request for you, if possible. It would make the aircraft look more complete and looking
more like the real aircraft.
One small detail which has been overlooked on this aircraft model since the beggining and
could use a little change,  is the side radiator.
The original side-radiator on this aircraft was of a box-like shape and smooth on its side
and what we have now is also a box-like shape.... BUT with a very strange side "effect" blister portuding from its side.
When viewed from the front it looks like a small blister or pimple coming out on its side.
I found this to be very strange and could not find any of this design in any of my researches in
books or on the internet when I was creating a skin-template for this Albatros version.
So I left the design lines I made for the radiator in the skin-template , in the hopes that one day some one could
make it smooth and for it to look more realistic.
DidnĀ“t anyone ever notice this strange radiator design before, or is it just me?

Thank you once again for making these fixes VonOben,
 it is one upgrade which I will surely use in my aircraft models.

This German beer is for you!

I can have a look at the side-radiator, that would perhaps be a good new Gmax exercise for me.  ;)
