I built a 'fake' stand in one several year ago ... I'll look around for any books or such. If you need the ground object to cross check or use as a basis for yours, let me know and I'll send it over (it uses the British 3.7in AAA gun as the lod -- as I said, it's a stand in!)

here's some links

like I said, it's a stand in. some of the DetectSystem data may be close, maybe not! (but it does work!0

I almost completed the model, some more details and I think it will be done.  not to forget adding gunners too.

Thank you so much. Considering the lack of detailed blueprints I think it’s almost perfect.

I have a question on how to set different animation id to 4 different nodes to have 4 ids to set the animation separately. 5e7f2549c5737_Annotation2020-03-28132148.thumb.png.91317ab643292cb4b916cb474d40aa6f.png

Do you mean they are all linked to same object and you want them to animate seperate ?  not quite sure what you want.....post pics of it in normal view from a few angles so can see better each part

I am trying to animate 4 different nodes separately, can I do animatin just fine but the problem is when I exported it comes in in as 1 animation ID for the model.  I have been looking some Jet fighter for example there are more than one animating ID for different nodes.  So my question how to make separate animation key in Max for each individual one so they can be animated separately or do i just animate all 4 and they in the data file I set the ID?

It is confusing and I am having hard time explaining my self I hope I made some sense.

if you want 1 mesh to do 2 things...say yo need a cylinder to go up and down......and rotate at one end   ..animate the mesh to say rotate..anim slot 1   ..then create an invisible mesh or even 1poly....hide it in the mesh make it transparent...then link the main mesh to that poly and animate the poly...anim slot 2 .so you have now 2 animations for the same mesh....

so the gun and elevate and traverse. I wouldn't think it'd be necessary for the ammo feed drums to move

i was wondering if the radar dish spins, or ?? Never found out when I built the stand in!
