    I'm aware of the model but I'm not studying it. What I have been studying are the Air Ministries' original publications on the Mk.I and Mk.II and Mark Ansell's book on the aircraft. Thank you for the offer. If it has some good cockpit photos I would be interested in seeing them.

    Thanks DL, I will check with them. I have contacted the RAF Museum and while they did respond they could only give me further links to try. I'm going to keep digging with the hope of eventually striking gold. I did receive some very nice external photos from hairyspin of the main gear that he had taken at the museum. I have seriously been thinking about having it TacPack-ed and having it where it can be a multiplayer shared cockpit and turret gunner. That will be farther down the line after the main model is completed.

    As much as I appreciate all that you are doing for this forum I'm restricting early access to those who submit contributions (data not money) to the development of this aircraft. Not to worry as it will be as all my models are free to all. Thanks to Clive aka Pat Pattle who sent me some documentation on the CFS3 version I have a lot more information on the aircraft. Yes Clive is on my list. Thanks Dave, I am appreciative of your support, Anything you can dig up, please. I have the feeling that there must be some people on this forum that may have access to information that would be of great help in the production of this model. As most of you know I build models as a hobbyist with a passion for aircraft of the era and that the end results will be freeware with the caveat that it...

    Hello all, I'm posting a few screen shots of my current project. I'malmost done with the exterior model construction. I'm currently mapping andtexturing as I go as you can see by the incomplete textures. I have a millionmore rivets to draw (heavy sigh). Testing is being done in FSX and P3D 2.x andsoon P3D 3.x. I have been searching and purchasing data for the aircraftbut it is scarce. If anyone has information and is willing to share it with meI would very much appreciate it by adding you to my small list of beta testers when the time comes. I'mprimarily looking for cockpit detail and flight characteristic data. I hope you like it. Paul

    I thought swingman's duck was FSX native? Mine did have the DX10 problem because of an incorrect setting in the Max material settings for FSX. The DX10 fixer solved the problem for those who encountered it. It never did show up on my system that's why I didn't catch it.

    Didn't he get a "Tail-wind" nickname in the RAF as a result?

    I can't speak of the X56 but I've had a X55 for a few months now and like it. Be aware though that I had some major issues when trying to get the Saitek drivers and programming software to install in Win 7/64 Pro. The driver installer never completed (it hung on the final stage and never closed automatically) although the drivers did go in and were recognized. The programming software installed but after spending a long time setting up the axes and buttons I discovered the button to apply the profile to the HOTAS remained 'greyed out' and I could not apply the profile at all! In the end I bought the full version of FSUIPC and used that to assign the axes and buttons and I have been very happy with the set up so far.

    As new as this announcement is, you can only speculate as to what name will be used. The current Twin Otter production retains the DHC-6 designation, so my guess would be that Viking will use either the original CL-415 or the more recent 415. Their website still hasn't even been updated to include the Super Scooper yet. Oh, and thanks for the HU - I'm putting a link to this article in the Newshawks.

    I'll do what I can about that story. Right now I'm kind of busy looking for a new job, but will see what I can uncover.
