Hi Daz,

    now, that does bring back memories.
    Not necessarily pleasant ones, but memories nonetheless.  :)
    Bye the way, nice job!

Thankyou to all those replys, you should all take a bow because your individual inputs/experience helped me to refine my skils ( hhmm ). Anyway this little project is designed to help those trainees understand the principles of operation.

Hey Tim in my younger years I worked on BMC motor cars and many others, is this the reason for "  now, that does bring back memories. Not necessarily pleasant ones, but memories nonetheless ".?

Thanks

Yes,

    working on the servicing of Minis, Morris Minors, Rovers, three wheelers, motorcycles, et Alia.
    My back still bears the scars of such tedious work c1965-1975.
    It is regrettable that solid state ignition wasn't utilised earlier, making this maintenance aspect pointless!
    A bit like TurboCAD - I would gladly have missed out on some of the earlier versions.  :)

Henry, yes it was fun to draw and immensely rewarding to draw the distributor based on a real model that I found at a wrecking yard. The guy who gave it to me wanted 10 bucks for it but when I said it was going to used as a training aid I got it for free.

To Jeff & Majo, Ive seen some of your work but not all, when you guys have used redsdk they are awesome so Im wondering just how much time goes into your efforts?

Andy, I remember your getting a beer animation design now thats impressive. Im sure an average joe like me could learn so much from that alone.

Thankyou

Daz, thanks for the compliment, but any RedSDK work I've done worth viewing has been either modifications of what Majo and others here in the Forum have provided me or pure luck.  I really haven't set aside the time to dig out and follow any tutorials on RedSDK materials and lighting.
