I guess it was dropped, too bad even if it only wouldve been AI. Or its perhaps in the maybe-post-addon-freebie thingy?

Gieko snatched him up and now force him to do bad commercials for insurance.

Make no mistake, they are holding him against his will in atrocious conditions.

SAVE THE GEKKO!!!

Sad! In thin non-modellers opinion there is easily enough cockpit information in the Moonlight Interceptor book by Mikesh to do the interior.

They are going more and more to the caveman theme and I don't much like that. As long as the AFLAC duck survives!

Caveman in therapy (http://www.jasonblogs.com/2007/01/12/geico-caveman-commercial-therapy-session/)


From Wiki:

In 2005, GEICO began an advertising campaign featuring "cavemen" in a modern setting. In these commercials a GEICO spokesman explains that signing up for Geico insurance is "so easy a caveman could do it". This slogan offends cavemen who are shown to still exist in modern society. In 2006, a new commercial featuring the cavemen premiered. While Röyksopp's Remind Me is playing in the background, one of the cavemen is on a moving sidewalk at an airport when he spots a billboard for Geico featuring a picture of a caveman along with the insulting phrase. The passing cavemen shows his disgust. Other GEICO caveman commercials include "Roast Duck with Mango Salsa", "Looks Like Someone Woke up on the Wrong Side of the Rock", "So Easy, a Therapist Can Do It", and "Does Having GEICO Make Me Any Less of a Caveman?".
