    The discussion a month ago was that JF was trying to get the F27 released by month's end (that would be tomorrow...). In the interim, we saw a series of very nice looking screenshots that suggested at least visual model maturity. Has anyone heard anything about whether JF is trying to get it out tomorrow, or whether it will be into the next few weeks? REALLY looking forward to this release (w/a great paint kit, hopefully...).

    ....and Wierd! I know a lot about airplanes, and I had never heard of this airplane...until about 12 hours before the original post in this thread. I was reading Warpaint Series #92 (HU-16 Albatross), when in referring to the Italian use of that type, the book said: "This sometimes precluded the HU-16A from reaching the many small islands around Italy in rough seas, which had not presented a problem for the elderly Cant z.506". And I went away saying "Cant Z.506-- what is THAT?" What are the chances of being a 53-year old airplane lover, and never heard of an airplane until today, didn't know what it was, and had my question answered all in 12 hours?

    I agree jymp....though just having the Fokker variant is going to be dream unto itself! Can't wait to hear the shrieking RR Darts (I need hearing aids anyway...). Kent

    Agreed-- it looks great....two exceptions: - No F27A w/airstair (a far fetched wish, I know, since these are the Fokker vs. Fairchild variants) - No external fuel tank option on the 200 (a must for military variants, and some civilian operators as well) All in all, hoping for release SOON! Kent

    ...on the JustFlight website: http://www.justflight.com/product/fokker-f27-200-300 Looks like it's getting close to done-- would LOVE to see them release it in time for this weekend, but even the most optimistic reports I have heard have been "end of October". This is one time when I would like to be wrong! Kent

    Sometimes I'm slow to figure things out, so it just might be my slowness....but for the sake of argument, let's say that: 1. The guy selling them didn't take the screenshots 2. The guy selling them didn't do the altering of the background in the screenshots 3. They are clearly traceable to other people.... Now what? What is the "desired end state" in this thread if the guy is breaking all of the rules? Is the remedy to sue the guy for infringement of copyright? If so, who would sue him? Where would they get the tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees needed to do that? Are there actually people on this board willing to risk losing large amounts of personal capital to sue the guy over screenshots? I understand being irritated about it, but I guess my real question is,...

    REALLY glad to hear the M-346 is still out there percolating (give us a version with English gauges, and a loadout manager, please!). As for the AT-6 variant, after seeing YoYo's latest post, I went to the Iris Facebook page, and saw all of the shots they had of the armed version. This will be another "no-brainer" purchase for me!

    Hope they do an MPP variant or two-- one with a FLIR pod as a minimum...(though it would be gret to see one with FLIR and search radar as well). Kent

    Does anyone know if a paint kit was released for the Tunnan? Also, does anyone know if the droptanks are removable on the visual model? If so, I sure haven't been able to figure it out. Thanks, Kent P.S. Just reloaded this beauty, and forgot how fun to fly she is!
