I'm relieved all the earlier issues haven't stopped you from working on models for FS2, TrashMan. I want to thank you for the improvements to the Orion Mk2, no matter if its minor fixes or more. I've grown to really like the ship. Likewise the other work you've done is very much appreciated - So much so I wonder if you could read my mind or saw my wish list for Christmas.
With my limited knowledge I also couldn't find a way to get past the issues you've been having with the Archangel, crashing on attempting to convert to pof. (to avoid any confusion, I didn't make any progress myself) Are you still at that dead end? If so, I'd like to repeat my call to see if someone else with a lot more knowledge and experience will have a good shot at getting the Archangel to convert and work instead?
At any rate, good luck and keep it up!
