    Scale Dail, Hello and welcome to the project thread. :wavey: Thank you for your warm comments. Sadly we had this on hold for a bit while we get back up to speed. With the issues now resolved, maybe we can get some activity going here again. I do have several variants of the models available in two engine cowling configurations and just a bit more work left in the VC to wrap her up. But even with that we are looking at the new year before release. I'll keep you informed. Attached are screen shots of the C-57, C-60A, and the L-18 in their current state.

    jbDC9, wow, I cannot believe how long its been since we had a post here. Unfortunately, Nigel has had power issues at home for a time but that is now being corrected and we are getting back to full speed again. Trying to finish up the Harpoon now and we will be on the Lodestar next. She's mapped for textures and ready for Nigel to do his magic. Thank you for posting the V-Speed placard. Where do you have that mounted on your aircraft?

    Thank you JG; I was not aware of Pierre's work but will download and check them out. I have many of these things planned or worked out and have created a "flight model" for the Bounty's dimensions and weight that gives her a realistic feeling in the water; still very preliminary but a nice start. The key challenges for me will be sail and yard management, heeling, and speed management in various winds. It takes a lot of power to get that weight moving, and then restricting speed to realistic values after moving is the challenge. Moving sails from port to starboard on a square rigger is a tough challenge given all the ropes involved, too many to animate and very tough to change the lengths of rope. I appreciate your detailed post and will use it as a reminder for features. :-)

    Terry, That's amazing! It seems like a big, expensive beer run. If you liked to drink, the Navy was the place to do it, so it seems. :-)

    Dale I build gamer units LOCALLY ONLY for a living however I agree with Nick N as to what and how to build a great unit for FSX, P3D and X-Plane. I am not bragging but I build some of the fastest and best Flight Simulation hardware for way below what it would cost at a GAMER retailer. Nick is the MASTER BUILDER! So if you are patient in your reading of the following you will find the keys to the kingdom in building and enjoying the FSX/P3D experience...I promise. Read all of this. Make a sandwich and get your favorite beverage and decide to read this until you fully get what Nick is saying. Trust me you will be a very happy FSXer!

    Aw shucks guys! :-) I assure you that the models would be just clay without the efforts of the team to bring them to life. We are fortunate to have like-minded designers and artists around to keep us happy in our hobby. :-) Thank you for expressing your feelings toward these efforts; I assure you the comments are essential to keep the fires burning brightly. We have the Harpoons, Lodestars and Ventura modeling done or mostly done, and in the queue for attention. Once we get the Harpoons out, I will start on the A-20 Havoc.

    That is a beautiful Cat! Love her colors. We have two cats, a polydactyl (26 toes) Siamese, and a long-haired Tabby. Is that an African Grey? My wife would love to have the parrots as well. LOL

    I may have answered the question of the Dornier 335. I assumed that the version you listed (FS9 Freeware) was a full version, especially when I saw the size. Since it didn't have anything but textures after all that time downloading. . .I'm now downloading the SimTech version. . .this is probably the base model which the textures were an addition to. This has to be the largest freeware download I've ever done, lol. . .reaching almost 250 meg. lol
