    Back in February - Feb 16, 2002 to be exact. I began a project. I set out to create a Baron Triplane Unit based on the Red Baron's plane.

    As many of you know, I soon ran into problems with the pallette and other things, so I abandoned the project for other units.
    Every now and then I came back to it.

    So many people urged me to continue it and if it weren't for them it would never have been completed.

    I want to dedicate this unit to those who inspired me to finish it - in particular nonnob, omnimower, and pablostuka. Thanks guys for the encouragement and suggestions.

    I based the model off of a model from 3D Cafe, but I made some changes to it.

    Here is the unit you've all been waiting for...
    The much anticipated...
    Triplane

    Please rate this unit. Thanks.

    Finally, after all your "Ahems," you can be at peace...

    Thanks, guys, for being so patient. I know many of you REALLY REALLY wanted this unit.

    I know I said I wanted civ-colours, but I don't suppose you could do an always-red one?

    I could probably whip one up.
    All I need to do is change the pallette, and throw in some insignia.
    Might be another 8 months before I do though ;)

    Thanks, stainz

    Don't worry, I don't mind at all about the pedia icons.

    I am posting this image to show both of them.
    You can take your pick as to which one you want to use for your own personal triplane.
