    You Brits should know the sound... it was after all a licensed Royce Rolls Avon which powered the Draken :-)

    Thanks for the heads up! It looks like a very well made representation of the famous swedish cold war fighter. I met some former swedish draken pilot at the SERE C course at the Swedish ranger school for some years back and they had some very good stories about intercepting both US U-2 and SR-71 back in the days. The SR-71 guys send a plaque to the Flygflottilj and congratulating them on the intercept.. Little doubt the draken had astonishing high altitude performance.

    Sad news indeed. Worked with Paul and others at MAIW on a couple of projects a few years ago. Never realized he was just up the road.

    Why don't you let the beta end and the finished model be released. Who knows, it might be in the final package? :ernaehrung004:

    Ditto. And for as long as this Aerosoft project has been going on every time you updated your D model Dino, it was mentioned in the beta threads. I think they will be a great compliment to each other. :ernaehrung004:

    Looks good on the outside for sure. I have this one but haven't tried it in FSX at all. How does the cockpit fair? Any missing textures or weirdness we sometimes get with portovers? Or did they remake it for FSX? :ernaehrung004:

    Wrong thread for this discussion. Good way to kill potential sales. But anyway, check the format of the textures. They may be DDS now but they might not have been originally. "Extended 32 bit 888-8" BMPs (and some others no doubt) will look dark like that after converting to DDS. Might need to convert to DXT3 or DXT5 first and then to DDS. Also make sure there is a cfg file in the texture folder. Sometimes it's as simple as that. Hope this helps. Is the F-104S a nice model or would the 104G be better. Certainly more repaint potential with the G since I think Italy and Turkey were the only S model operators while most of NATO flew the G at one time. Sounds like I'm convincing myself towards the G but would like to hear from others who have either or both. ...

    Thanks for telling about the Lancaster sounds, they are great! KM-C is getting ready. I have removed the stencils as it looks like they were not painted on the Tiger scheme and the exhaust stains have been modified. I have also made all new RAF C1 roundel and tail flash

    This was a great thread to read. I haven't installed any of the A-7 packs on the new PC. I was never pleased with them on the old PC so hadn't bothered. But now I think I will and then will go back through the thread and apply the changes. Thanks everyone for keeping the conversation going and especially for the contributions. :ernaehrung004:

    Hi, It has been very interesting to follow this thread, superb work on the new Fokker(s). Any chance of tempting you into making the Fokker CV series? The Norwegian army air force was a big user of both the CVE light bomber and the CVD fighter models and they were even license produced at the army air force aircraft factory at Kjeller. They were good multirole combat aircraft for their time, but by 1940 they showed the sorry state of the Norwegian military as the CV series was still the main combat aircraft. Even so they fought on during the Norwegian campaign in both the light bomber and recce roles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fokker_C.V#mediaviewer/File:Fokker_CV-D.jpg

    Hi, I just saw it. I also thought about checking similar decals on the Lancaster, but I cannot see any similar stencils and warning decals at all on the wartime Lancasters except for the fuselage and wing jacking points/trestle lines. Even if there are more Tiger force pictures of the Lancaster than the Lincoln there are few up close, but I think it is very plausible that it followed the same pattern as on the camouflaged scheme, No decals. It might have something to do that it was wartime and they did not see the value with painting such decals on an airframe which would have a short life and that warning stencils were something more related with peacetime health and safety considerations.. Therefor applied to the later black and grey Lincoln scheme.

    That was a jolly nice screenshot! I'm making KM-C of No 44 (Rhodesia) sqn right now in the white/black "Tiger Force" scheme it had in 45-46. Do any of you have any information about which colour the stencils would have had on this scheme? It was yellow on the later schemes, but I don't have any pictures showing it on the Tiger Force scheme. Since yellow is difficult to see on white, I'm thinking maybe it was in red. Or they had no stencils at all... Any thoughts? http://www.adf-gallery.com.au/gallery/NZ-Lincoln/Lincoln_RF388_27th_February_1946_ex_75_NZ_Sqn_passed_on_to_47_Rhodesia_Sqn?full=1
