    Gray Eagle, the "Bad Duck" original paint scheme I made with the poetic license of adding Donald Duck is of VJ-62 Fleet Air Photographic Unit 3 based out of NAS Norfolk, VA. If you downloaded the model here at SOH (the only place I posted it) you would have VJ-62 as one of the -5 model selections.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FSX Military Props Description: Murphy's War Mount Kyle Reconnaissance Plane This is an addon to my Bad Duck model. There is nothing new in the VC but that is in the works for an entirely new release of the duck coming in the not to distant future. There are some changes to the external model in the Mount Kyle version that will be seen in later updates to all the models. My thanks to the superb artwork of JanKees Blom for his textures. To check it out, rate it or add comments, visit Murphy's War.zip The comments you make there will appear in the posts below.

    Hi Paul, as I was the one who originally suggested that paint scheme for your awesome Duck, I am tickled to see you removed the cowling like the movie! Can you remove the copilot too? No copilot in the movie!! I guess you haven't downloaded it yet because it has just Peter O'Toole in the pilots seat. I tried my best with pictures of him downloaded from the internet. I'm also working on some new pilot figures for the other model versions. The canopy was removed as well since the one in the movie did not have the moveable parts of the canopy.

    I think this is the first time someone made a model for a paint job? I just love JanKees work and had to make this special edition of the <st1:p<st1:pMount <st1:pKyle from the movie Murphy's War for his great repaint. For those who like a little trivia the aircraft in the novel of the same name by Max Catto was a Fairey Swordfish floatplane and not a Grumman Duck. This is not a stand alone model you need the "Bad Duck" installed first. You will find the Mount Kyle in the Warbirds Library. Please don't laugh at my attempt of a Peter O'Toole model. :untroubled: I'm continuing work on the VC and a little later will post a link that will allow those who want to download the VC model as it progresses. Just check back every so often and see what's new. I hope you enjoy flying up...

    Not sure they will help, but I have regenerated the original paint templates in 2048x2048. I also have 3 other original textures not included in the coming release if anyone is interested. The original paint schemes all have great details but I cannot yet find the 32-bit versions, only have the dxt3. EDIT: I found the original 32-bit textures. Yea!

    It will be great, especially for those who cannot or will not run port-overs. I look forward to it. :-)

    Thanks for uploading here first. The native conversion has its good points but there are issues. Here are the issues I see: 1) Nose gear animation does not work 2) I am not seeing a glare-shield in the VC 3) The window frame smoothing was not done and there are see-thru leaks around the windows.

    Have you checked with Milton on the original UV maps? If he still has them then it would not be to difficult to create specular and bump maps. With a little bit more work the current maps could be edited for the purpose with Photoshop.

    txnetcop replied to a thread Blown away.. in X-Plane
    I fly both because I have learned to make FSX and X-Plane 10 work really well on my old quad core system. The SSD drive helped a bunch and I still use my old Nvidia GTX 285 OC. I have my system running at 4.2GHz and that also helps with FSX. I have the QX9650 CPU which even today is fairly respectable. I just recently started flying in War Thunder...now that is FUN! By the way, according to Austin's latest email there are some really exciting things coming up with Global Scenery!

    Probably the most improved area in X-Plane are the incredible sceneries, especially airports with tons of ground and air traffic.

    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
