An accurately scaled and modeled low polygon Piper Meridian aircraft. With a polygon count of just 2080 (3860 tris) this model has been professionally developed for simulation and game use. It is properly uv mapped and fully textured. The primary texture is a 2048 x 2048 bitmap. All control surfaces, including flaps, ailerons, elevators, prop, rudder, and landing gear are independent objects for easy animation. There are two included prop versions, one static prop and one spinning opacity mapped prop.
This model is available here in .3ds, .fbx, .flt, .lwo (v 6.0), .max (v 2008), and .obj formats.
