The MD-11 too is a very nice tri-jet, i'm looking forward to see it in action :)

Yes, the windshield is not very accurate, the L1011 is a very complicated
aircraft IMHO, and my editor doesn't help too much but if after texturing,
something doesn't look right, I'll redo that part

The L1011-500 uses the Rolls-Royce RB211-524B
take a look here for details:

thanks for the links and info, I've used aero-matic today, the process is very
straight-forward and it's a good way to get started with a working file, it's a
nice tool :)

Me neither, but I've met a few online, if you have any trouble, i can ask them
to enlighten us :)
