    Storm, I totally echo your observations--particularly about this being the best JF model I've also bought to date. What I think is cool is flying with this thing like small US carriers did in the 60's and early 70's: - Lots of short legs - The chance to do "quick turn station stops" like I remember seeing Bonanza and Air West do on the west coast (land, taxi in, chop the left engine-- but keep the right one running, pop the front cargo door open for cargo and bags, back boarding door is open, a few pax are exchanged, the doors are closed, left engine is fired back up, and off you go....about a 15 minute turn) Overall, I'm happy with it-- except wish we had the Fairchild variants w/airstair....but what the heck, what we have now is filling a big hole in FS.

    Bazzar, please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that if the HPC lever is in the standard LOCK OUT position on landing (which is where it should be if both engines are operating), then at touchdown, with the aircraft weight on the wheels, the "Prop Below Lock" lights illuminate as the props automatically go into "Ground Fine" (prop blades go flat or nearly flat), which increases drag and helps shorten the roll out.

    I sincerely hope you're joking about not posting again, Awash...I absolutely wasn't trying to single you out....your post was completely in line...you were asking a serious question. I, on the other hand was poking fun at myself for apparently only having a one-track mind... Regards, Kent

    Any word on the paint kit? This baby is just dying to be repainted! I flew this airplane for most of the day yesterday, and I am in love. Great job. When/if you do a service pack, please add an .MDL for a -200 with external tanks (to include tweaked FDE , and tank textures)...then, in addition to a ton of airline/cargo schemes, we can also do a ton of military repaints (the very sharp looking New Zealand AF and Icelandic Coast Guard versions immediately come to mind). Again....just OUTSTANDING! Kent P.S. On the paint kit, can you please include the textures for the start cart, baggage trolley and steps so that we can match those items with the repaint?

    Ah well...too late...I've since **completely** lost interest in the F27... NOT ON YOUR LIFE! Downloading as I type this!!!! (Later Edit) To be honest, I have never particularly been a fan of JF products (I've had framerate problems, texture issues, cartoonish look IMHO, etc.)-- but this one is COMPLETELY changing my mind. The FDE is superb-- solid as a rock, with that "heavy" feel...the textures are well done...and so far-- the frame rates are like a knife through butter. My **only** complaint is the treatment of the beacons-- the steady red glow on the sides of fuselage is annoying....get rid of that, and the beacons would be okay-- but overall it's a minor nit. Well done so far!!!! Kent

    Plus, if you go to their product page, and scroll down to the MU-2 and click on the side view, it will put you on the sales page, which will allow you to step through a ton of pics: http://www.flysimware.com/FLYSTORE_2015/en/home/33-flysimware-mitsubishi-mu-2b-60.html Hope that helps. Also Sean, PM sent. Kent

    All, I bought the RealAir Turbo Duke V2 for FSX over the weekend-- what a fantastic airplane! I see that a few repaints have been done for it, but when I go to the RealAir website, there is only a single paint kit available, and it doesn't specify whether it is V2 compatible. After looking at some posts from January of this year, it appears that an updated paint kit has not yet been released by RealAir. Does anyone know if the "non-V2" paint kit is compatible with the V2, and if not, when RealAir is planning on getting the paint kit on it's downloads page? Thanks, Kent

    I was thinking the same thing Jens-Ole. Great to see HenryW here again. Really good news! Very nice looking repaint on the T-6. Even when unarmed it looks very badass with the sharksmouth. :ernaehrung004:
