Cessna 172 Skyhawk

Just uploading this as a little taste of what may be soon to come...
Ladies and Gentleman, I present to you after almost a year of inactivity, this lovely little model of one of the world's favorite workhorses, the lovable Cessna 172SP Skyhawk! Since the first prototype was completed in 1955, more than 35,000 C172s have been produced, making it the world's most popular single-engine plane. One of Cessna's first tricycle-gear airplanes, the 172 quickly became the favorite of a growing class of business pilots. Its stability, reliability, durability and easy handling (along with thoughtful engineering and structural updates) have ensured its continued popularity for decades.
Comes with Normal and Spectral maps, as well as separated wheels and propeller for easy posing and other uses. Major credit to the team from Microsoft. Enjoy!
@Alejandro, Indeed, this was ported straight from Flight Sim X!
@Jmees, I've already started working on the concept, but I did manage to hit a major snag that's quite the bugger, so I thought I might as well release this model in the meantime incase it takes longer than I planned
@George, I suppose I could give it a shot for the next model I port, Sure! Any other suggestions anyone?
Wow, 300 downloads in only 14 hours? Thanks guys! I never thought just a model would be so popular. Perhaps I should do more of these..
Left side of the page? Woohoo! Thanks everyone!

This download looks like an addon. You need to extract the downloaded zip and put the addon folder in your Garry's Mod addons folder. You should end up with a directory structure similar to below:

  • steamapps
    • common
      • garrysmod
        • garrysmod
          • addons
            • Cessna 172 <-- Addon folder!
              • e.g.
              • lua
              • maps
              • materials
              • models
              • etc

Don't know where the Garry's Mod folder is or how to extract zip files? See more useful installation tips.
