Kleine Scheidegg and the Eiger Nordwand
Some three months ago (don't remember exactly how) I got in touch with Frank Dainese, a "sacred monster" of FSx Scenery Developement: time ago he made, as 3D models, all the major peaks of the Dolomites, and, at the time when I got in touch with him, he had just released the Apls around Val d'Aosta, including the Matterhorn, the Monte Rosa and the Monte Bianco.

 Could you figure out how excited I became, when he asked me:
 "Would you colloborate with me in the scenery design ?? I need someone making 3D buildings for the area I'm modelling ... in particular I need someone modelling the Funivie del Monte Bianco (The Cableways of the Monte Bianco) ... and I would like to see the cabs going up and down ...."

 I was honored and proud of being asked to collaborate ... and scared, because I never made any kind of "animation"; in addition, at that time, I was using, as a 3D modelling tool, Blender 2.49, having no script to export animations capable to be imported in FSX ... so I had to learn anew Blender 2.69, which is not an easy task for an obsolete 64 y.o. retired mechanical engineer !!! ... but the story of the Blender 2.69, the animation and the export to FSX is a different story, I'll speak about it somewhere else ....

When I was close to come to a solution for the Monte Bianco Cableways, Frank came out saying:
 "Hey, Paolo ... I'm modelling the Berner Oberland and the terrrific Eiger Nordwand ... would you be so kind to set aside for a while the cableways ... and model the village of Kleine Scheidegg ???"

 Could I refuse ?????

  1. Salve Paolo, grazie per i tuoi bellissimi lavori. Volevo chiederti se potevo utilizzare gli oggetti che hai creato per Massa Cinquale e Marina di Campo per degli scenari che ho fatto per X-Plane. Sarebbero ovviamente distribuiti gratuitamente e tu saresti citato come l'autore degli oggetti. Scusa se ti scrivo qua ma non saprei come contattarti altrimenti. Grazie, Paolo

  2. how do we download this beautiful work?...grazie..
