    Wow. Of ALL of the FS9 airplanes I would like to see seamlessly ported into FSX, the Cloud9 F-104 is one of them. A close second is their Aermacchi MB-339CD series. Gorgeous airplanes. Kent

    We have models with and without the spinners:wavey: And any kind of info is most welcome. Gear retraction/extending times, performance, weights, etc. Drawings of the cockpit as I am debating whether to do 3D gauges, but then again, 3D gauges are the norm these days. So in short, anything is welcome to aid in the development.

    Chief, Just a thought/suggestion. We had the IDENTICAL situation with our cat Mugsy a few years ago. He was having NONE of the hydration with a needle. In desperation, we bought a ceramic water fountain made for cats...he began to drink water like a maniac. If Twist has the slightest interest in running water, it might help augment the hydration you're doing. It kept Mugsy going two years more... Kent

    I haven't applied the materials to the mesh yet as I am getting familiarized with the mesh before I can commence work:wavey:

    Well here we are and my request was indeed for an FSX native package. Originally built in Max 2010, Max 9 will not open the files, so Matt was kind enough to convert into gmax format. For those that have sent me PM, my apologies for not getting back to you sooner. So now, I have another request or a question if I may. Can we make this an SOH collaboration project? This will be my first WWII aircraft I build for FS and I know nada when it comes to paint schemes, squadrons, etc and many of you here have great vast knowledge in this area. I would also need someone to do FDEs, sounds, gauges, etc. If this is a project that would interest and involvement, post here and we can assemble a team to get this project finished and out the door. Otherwise, it would be a long while before this...

    I've got the Virtavia CV-22, and with some of the freeware mods to make it fly better from a VTOL perspective, it's quite fun. That said however, it's quite long in the tooth (by today's modeling standards). Does anyone know of a new FSX/P3D package that is in development? I've scoured the internet and found nothing thus far. Kent

    Been a while since the last update as I have multiple projects across the boards right, so I had some time to work on this one tonight. The model has now spawned winglets as shown in the renders. As of today, the exterior is about 95% complete with little left to do including the coding of the custom lighting. Interior work is only at 30% complete as I am redoing the interior walls. Of course, I could use someone to do a paintkit for the bird. Anywho, I'll post another update soon:wavey:

    As the title suggest, I am looking for material relating to this aircraft. Specs, manuals, etc covering all aspects including the propeller. My lips are sealed on this aircraft until further notice:wavey::ernaehrung004:

    Ooh yeah....and some nice strong coffee! Mmmmmm...Life is good...oops...off topic Yeah, and I also am extremely happy with this bird...If I can find the patience and time, I would like to do some US schemes (Bonanza and Air West come to mind instantly-- both from my childhood).

    I'm kind of surprised we haven't seen a few more repaints for this bird yet. I brought the paint kit on my business trip, but haven't spent any time on the trip with it. I poked around with it a few nights before I left home, and got irritated. It will work-- just not easily.... Kent

    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.
