Default Delta-Glider in X-Plane 11

Here are some screenshots I took of the Delta-Glider while flying in X-Plane. The model seen here is NOT the original. It's an approximation designed to allow it to fly in the X-Plane simulator (based on the default Orbiter 2010 model).

You replicated the model yourself within X-Plane? If so, that is a really good replication.

Yup. Replicated it myself, from scratch. I even created a customized airfoil for it so that it would be stable in flight.

Could you post more screenshots from different angles?

Sure. I made a ton of extra screenshots (mostly trying to get a good size comparison).

First two are some better-quality shots of the size comparison shot in my first post. The third is from the opposite side of the delta-glider (yet another size-comparison shot once I got in rough formation), and the fourth is a screenshot of the delta-glider the instant that it landed on the runway. I modified that one to show you how the landing was (I almost ran out of runway trying to get it stopped). And the fifth screenshot is from my first reentry attempt. I wasn't able to land that one safely for some odd reason.

EDIT: More Screenshots!

Do you plan on coloring it?

Eventually I'll apply a texture to it and/or build a more visually appealing mesh, but that is not my top priority right now.
