Some other observations:
» I guess you will add a rotating beacon on the bottom as well.
» When the crew door is opened, there is a small ladder that is put in place to facilitate entry/exit. Will you include that? I have pix, if you require.
» Every in-flight pic I have of an S2F-3/S-2E equipped with the ventral data link antenna, shows it in the stowed position. You plan to have the antenna extend when L.G. is retracted; will you consider unlinking it from L.G. operation?
EDIT: "You plan to have the antenna extend when L.G. is retracted; will you consider unlinking it from L.G. operation?" ...or instead linking its animation to the dustbin radar and/or MAD boom?
You are likely aware of this, but just in case!
The aerial and mast configuration on the -1 is substantially different from that on the -3.
EDIT: Just finished reconstructing the cockpit walls, ceiling, and window frames (a real tedious affair). Next, an even worse one; mapping the same.
EDIT2: H52, beacons and stairs have been added and antenna now works with eth MAD boom and radome deployment.
Okay, cockpit (Humpty Dumpty) is back together again, polys reassigned to channel ID's, and mapped. I am now back to where I was last week, except with a redesigned and rebuilt fuselage and cockpit shell. :salute: :sleep:
I figure that'll mean serious surgery, something like this ( looks like the diagonal line starts just aft of the prop warning stripe.. ) :
Btw, my initial main task will be to realize the MLD S2N, a modified S2F-1(S-2A) for use by the Netherlands Navy:
@Milton : finally I DID get my dirty hands on some USN crew photo's from the 60's... :cool:
So that'll be orange and yellow for starters, fine with me ! :cool:
Jan, you are on it Sir :)
We look forward to the new pilot figures. :jump:
I should be in a position to get you the S2F-3 gmax source this week.
This is great!
Mapping almost complete, and only a couple more things to get done here on the model.
Note that the test gauges are temporary.
Oh, do you want the VC Rain feature employed?
Anything else you see wrong?
The flight model feels great; will leave it to Fliger to say when done. :salute:
The sounds are awesome and loud at full throttle; easy to bear at cruise settings (with a headset), thank you Nigel :applause:
The panel and gauges are in limbo I guess as I have not heard from diegox in 3 weeks. I think he has been on the road.
Effects will need to be worked on; any volunteers?
Textures are ready to send to the paint kit makers. :)
:jump: :jump: :jump: :jump: :jump: :jump:
The excitement is building as we see the updated pics.
Looking great Milton :applause: :applause: :applause:
Thanks Pete ... we will keep pushing until you guys have this in your hands.
Then, on to the next one. :wiggle:
I'd be happy to fly your creation around with no textures. Beautiful! Thanks.
Really nice, Milton...I'm lookin forward to flying this one around. mid
I currently only have the Willy Fudd and need to get the ESStoo to mod the files for it. I found a working copy of ACM on an old laptop, but it is only showing the fuselage???
