    Yep, I posted the link above as well. It's just based on a rather dated version. Much more detail in this one.

    And the bomb pylon. The small square outboard racks we already have and they work, but the set of three inboard racks we don't have. http://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=16002&p=albums&album=20080&view=list Let me know if there is anything else, thanks again for looking at it!

    Here is the rocket pylon, this is as installed on a Firefly, but I think it's the same as was used on the Swordfish. http://www.rollmodels.net/nreviews/airplanes/firefly/fireflymk1rkts1.jpg

    Here's some of the one in IWM. Apparently missing the antennas on the struts and the pylons for external stores, but shows the main radome, cockpit fairing and exhaust shroud pretty well. http://www.airport-data.com/aircraft/photos/NF370:1.html

    Cool! Thanks Ted. Yes, I was referring to pylons that look like those installed on the actual aircraft, I think the main ones are a bomb rack for three 250lb bombs or depth charges and rocket rails with the protective plate between them and the fabric of the wings. The radar is a three part deal, with a radome below and an antenna on each side on the outer strutt of the wings. The middle seat has a fairing over it to partially enclose it. Here's a pic I found after a quick look that show the radar and rockets, I'll try to find some better ones soon. http://www.uboat.net/allies/aircraft/swordfish.htm Thanks for looking into it!

    Enjoy your birthday Ted! I have enjoyed all your work Ted, you've added a lot to this sim over the years.:ernaehrung004: Excited to hear about the float version! Rob, not sure how it looks for you, but it seemed pretty close on my setup. The main reason I put the line where I did was if the yellow was any shorter, the side facing the pilot would start to become longer than on the other side. Also, a note on skins, I was looking around and found the Freeware Flying Stations Swordfish for FSX which is also based on this model. It is available here: http://flyingstations.com/swordfish.html and has a .psd paint kit which shares the same texture mapping as this model. I plan on eventually doing some skins from it in the near(ish) future, once I get some more done on other projects, but...

    Hi Kikas, You can't imagine how many things I learned about MSFS World "working" in team with Mike/FSAviator. I want to give him again a big "THANK YOU" for the veeery big work he did for my (our) planes, I'm only a retired old plastic modeller, he is the person that makes these planes to fly really and not as RC models...... :applause::applause::applause::applause:

    Awesome Ted, thanks a lot!:applause: I'm also interested in the other models (and the float) if you have the time and inclination. I've done up a new texture for the still prop, as the current one is using the P-47 reflective texture and is black and white and the tip paint ended up on only the face of the blades anyways. This one has it on both sides. Wasn't sure about uploading permissions to put up an m3d which uses the new texture, but here is the texture itself; those who know how can edit their m3d to use it. If all is well with Ted and Mathias I can put up a properly edited m3d that uses it next.

    gecko started a thread Hampen? in CFS3 General Discussion
    Seeing all these nice skins for the CFS2 version of Ted Cook's Hampden has me wondering, how's the progress on our version? It seemed close a while back, but I haven't heard much in a while. Would love to apply all these new skins to it!

    No trouble. And all mention of the autopilot aside, all of the above ought to work just fine in FS9 and probably FSX.

    Yes with the newer faster machines we have now, settings of 4 or 5 could work. Compared to what we had years ago when 3 was needed in certain areas of MAW. I am going to Dance with Master David's work as soon as I can. rather tied up with real life issues right now. Haven't had the time to dance in my CFS 3 stuff, much the past week or so here. Bummer. Grateful for ALL the Masters who keep improving our Beloved CFS3 and expansions. Bravo Guys! Much rejoicing!! :applause: :applause: :applause:
