With each new version, I find myself less than thrilled with the lack of accurate pre-installed stock parts databases.

I shouldn't have to check each and every mouse-click when designing simple A thru G models...

I solve that problem mostly by using balsa nose cones from BMS and SEMROC as often as possible...

To me, the database issue is not as important as those of rendering and placement, as I find myself entering new data for new components quite a lot. But you're right, I shouldn't have to re-enter data for parts that have been around as long as I have. Once the items have been brought up-to-date, though, it's done and I don't have to re-enter it...

The Dead Wings are toast, so I'm allowed a 'different paint scheme' design.

I played around with the textures option and came up with this look for the airframe.
I may tackle the fins later on.
