    Sorry to say I then started getting intermittent dll missing errors. After more troubleshooting I gave up and uninstalled Spotlights.

    I for one am ready for the F-14 and other traditional frontline current and past fighters/warbirds. Looking forward to the F-14. I am much ready to have F-14/16/18/22/4/35/EFA-2000/Rafale/Su series/MiG series over some lesser known aircraft that have been in development or released lately.

    I'll give it another day, given that it was only 2 days then the weekend. Nothing tomorrow and I'll move on. I like the effect but I can certainly live without it.

    Kurt: I believe I remember those campaigns and was the reason for my post...will look them up. I used to be quite proficient in doing all the mods necessary, but the talent has probably fled with the years. BTW - I was the flight surgeon for 8 sqd 49th tac fighter wing, Spangdahlem and points East in the 1960s. Inheritors of the PTO days. Yeah, I am that old. Archive87

    It is far too early, I'm afraid, to be trying to assess the validity of the flight model. By their own admission, the flight model is still work in progress and expect further upgrades and changes. If you develop for this sim, you will know that there are several major issues in the flight model - ground behaviour and general lift/drag behaviours being among them. All that can be done at the moment is accept it for what it is, an excellent scenery viewer and wait for the flight model to be fully corrected and finished. One thing it does do in its present state is teach one to be more aware of aeroplane behaviours and controls, which is a plus in its favour.:engel016:

    Looks great Huub, I will take a printed copy to Bob tomorrow for his thoughts . Once we make it as close to the orignial as possible, I will paint it on one of Milton's fabulous A-20's. Then to make the video at Floridablanca. Thanks to all for your help with this project. I will try to make the video appear here once complete. Thanks again. Tom

    Funny how things go around. What "hooked" me to CFS1 was the buffeting of my right wing while trying to turn inside my target of the moment, a Bf109E. I was elated! FS98 had been a deception; it was just like flying on rails (my exact words). I've just finished a trans-continental flight from Breckenridge, CA, to Montréal, QC, in a flimsy Zlin Ultra. I was tossed in all directions like a "salad du jour". I died - virtually that is - from pretty much all possible causes. Every time I died, I would restart from my last previous good landing. No, this is definitely not like being on rails, unless you consider roller coaster as one.

    Testing it. I never upload this beast. I found it in one of my project's folders. New airfile and Win 7 safe panel using Hurricane gauges. The VC is horrible! Maybe someone really competent can do a better one. Cheers Pepe

    pilto von pilto replied to a thread Mustang!!!! in MSFS (FS2020)
    One of the ideas is to take the idea from the socata we did and make it a little less involved ( only providing restored or weathered instead of the 4 options ) to help here. We know there are people who like the "highly polished to an inch of it's life " and also the " this is a warbird and there are people shooting at us so no time to polish the plane " types. Of course we're the latter so you'll see those textures first. We've got something else planned in that area but it is up to MSFS to see if it can do it. FSX can so it should be able to. As for colours we've gone with our gut here. I basically took a lot of the pics found online and the reference books, I have added up the chromate yellow Vs Chromate green VS Raw metal vs field modifications and then found the one that had the...

    Here are a lot more photos that may be of use. These are of P-51D-25-NT 45-11513 (NZ2423), which when these photos were taken had never been restored. All of the internal primer and paint finishes are original to when it was manufactured in 1945. (The oddly-colored green paint on the clam shell landing gear doors was added while it was in service in New Zealand, where as you can see the raw (yellow) zinc chromate original factory finish below). Even the engine is original to the airframe when it rolled out of the Dallas NAA factory. A miner few details in the cockpit, such as the way the canopy emergency release handle is painted, were changed during its time with the RNZAF. P-51D-25-NT 45-11513 (NZ2423) photo album: ...

    Ok, before I drive myself crazy, what else besides the following files, do I need to download & install to get the Sim Skunkworks Tornado to work properly in P3DV5.1? I have the following installed currently that I downloaded from Simmarket today: SSW.Tornado-Installer-P3DV5-1.0.0 SSW.Tornado-Installer-P3DV5-HF1 and SSW.Tornado-Installer-P3DV5-Textures-1.0.0

    Oh, I am loving the Armée de l'air livery! I also like the colourful tail on the Danish paint, great job as always JanKees :encouragement: If you are open to suggestions, I would love to see a livery based on the old RCAF paint scheme that was commonly seen on our CF101's. Lots of reference pictures here: http://silverhawkauthor.com/canadian-warplanes-6-jets-mcdonnell-cf101-voodoo_679.html I think it would suit the G91 quite well!

    A few other details about the primer finishes on P-51D/K's: - The oil tank was never painted yellow. That is something that has only come along in non-authentic restorations. The oil tank, depending on the pace of production, was either given a coat of raw (yellow) zinc chromate, or just left bare metal. - Like the oil tank, the header coolant tank was almost always left bare metal. If it was primered, it was given a coat of raw (yellow) zinc chromate. - The engine bearers/mounts were always finished in black-tinted (green) zinc chromate, and were never left in single-coat raw (yellow) zinc chromate.

    The interior confines of the P-51, gear wells included, were always a patchwork no matter what, throughout P-51 production. There was however more use of primer in late production (such as a P-51D-25-NT - which seems to be about the variant you have depicted here by the cockpit details) vs. early production (such as P-51D-10-NA). This is what is true to original factory production: - In early production, aluminum parts, such as skins and ribs, would be left unprimered if the Alcoa Alclad or Reynolds Pureclad finish remained largely untampered. They would also be left unprimered if spot-welding was required (such as landing gear doors, cowl panels and gun bay doors). - Aluminum forgings and extrusions (such as brackets and stringers) were to receive a single coat of primer. Raw...
