Default DCS SA342 Gazelle Project

Hello,

As suggested by Wags, here's my call for help.

The french attack helicopter SA342 Gazelle project is planned to stay "freeware" and is on the way.
I need every document you may provide (drawings with measurements would be cool, pilot manual, everything could help...)
Concerning DCS specific 3D design, evrything concerning files structures, collision model, etc...
The max info I get the best it will be.

I already got blueprints (hard to use as usual because of the distorted pictures), lots of walkaround photos, datas from "Armee de terre" site, some published docs, and some info from the ED Wiki and from here.

If you have any specific Gazelle doc, please share.

At the moment, I'm mostly working on the DCS mod install with dummy model. The main lod 3D Design is in the works too.

As soon as I have something to show it will be here.

Thanks.

EDIT 26/07/2015
Dear Simmers,

Since its first stages of developpement the module was planned to be free.
Things have changed now.
The Polychop-Simulations team has been working hard at the module for 2 years now (3 years total for the module today) to bring it at the DCS standards, 3rd party status, licences costs etc ... all this makes it impossible now to release it free.
So, the DCS Gazelle module will NOT be free.

The Gazelle free 3D models I aleady looked at have been built for rendering purposes I guess and are not suitable for games (170,000 - 200,000 polys).
Plus I don't feel free to use someone else work even it's free.
