    Absolutely LOVE the airplane. Two very minor "nits" I hope will be fixed with an update: - Priority #1: The refueling probe does not appear to be "toggleable" from the configuration application (no probe = foreign variants...Danish, French, etc.) Was told this would be implemented. - Lower priority: No nuclear weapon loadout (MK-28 or Mk-43/57/61) for those of us wanting to simulate VICTOR ALERT in Europe. Other than that, this is a FANTASTIC airplane, and it flies like a dream. Kent

    Sales page says they aren't supporting it on Win 8. Did they not test it on Win8 or 8.1? Did anyone take the $50 plunge who uses that OS and can verify it works or doesn't? :ernaehrung004:

    Here are replacement white gear/gear well textures. Study your references to see if they are appropriate for your aircraft and please read the "Readme" file :ernaehrung004:

    I've fixed the white gear wells and struts using the master textures. Since these textures weren't a part of the paint kit I'm just awaiting the go-ahead before making them available. :ernaehrung004:

    I provided the specs during development but... Anyway, "Going into the 1950's, the floors, walls, pedestals, control stick up to grip, and console sides were painted an "Interior Green" color similar to but darker than zink chromite green. All surfaces from the bottom edge of the main instrument panel and up were to be a flat (non-specular) black. "Navy Air Directive 01.1, March 25, 1954 revised the colors to be used in aircraft cockpits to replace the green with gray. (You can do this easy enough with a color replacement tool to change the green to a gray) "Navy aircraft go in for a PAR (Paint and Rework) service about every two years. So anything flying by 1956 would have had the cockpit color changes. That said, a directive in 1955 changed all exterior coloring from Sea...

    Weird that I run in to your post just now, after being frustrated with the default ac external lights with their black boxes, ever since installing FTX Gobal. Why didn't I run in to this one before beats me, as I certainly have searched for a resolution. Better late than never, so thanks Gray Eagle.

    Thanks for the heads-up on these flights/missions. I lobe the old prop birds and downloaded some of Gera's files. Looking forward to giving then a try.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I am waiting for a notification from the site where I purchased the great B17 AH offered to the Flight Sim Community. If I understand your post correctly, we need to download the full package and install it over the existing one, is that correct?

    Yep, that's it. I removed the blue background on my own during testing as soon as the paint kit was released so some different ones than what were included would be a nice change. I like the weathering as well. Might have to ask you for those layers. :encouragement: :ernaehrung004:
