    P-39dej_052

    After a couple months of testing, fine tuning, and other projects, the updated version of Eric Johnson's Airacobra was just uploaded.
    The most significant change was a 1 inch shift of the Airframe...

    Center of Gravity

    Even though the Airacobra was released a few months ago, I was never quite satisfied with how things turned out.
    It seemed that the aircraft didn't handle quite as well as it should have. For a...

    Minor Update

    Project has been updated with a CFS Style Multi Gauge Fuel Selector to improve Cockpit Interior View.
    It seems a bit silly to have a single gauge inside a Multi Gauge package but that is how CFS /...

    Hello All,

    I had intended to create a new Fuel Gauge before releasing this project but am finding that creating the bitmaps for the gauge is taking much longer than I had expected. The bitmaps...

    Hello Hertzie,

    First of all, I can't really call this "MY" Plane. It is still Eric Johnson's P-39 though of course the modifications are mine.

    I have never really been interested in getting...

    New Gauges for Airacobra

    Some folks may have noticed that in the last panel screenshot that the Trim Gauge looked a bit odd.
    It resembles the stock SP.Trim Gauge in appearance and general function but is actually a...

    Airacobra Instrument Panel

    Hello All,

    The Virtual Cockpit and SCASM edits were done not long after the prior post.
    I had not realised that I didn't post any screenshots.

    Interior Canopy Frame

    One of the pieces that needs to be added via SCASM is the interior of the Canopy Frame.
    The process I use is to first build it as a single AF99 Component and texture it with an interior colour....

    Minor Change in Plans

    My original plan was to change nothing as far as textures and mapping that was not directly related to model changes.
    The main reason was to be able to use existing texture sets on the new model...

    Status Update

    The recent diversion to work on the P-47D-23 was actually very related to working on the flight model for the Airacobra.
    Both have quite similar centers of gravity though quite different conditions....

    More Cockpit Details

    Over the last few days, I found that some of the pieces of the Cockpit needed to be adjusted.
    They actually look fine from outside but from a Virtual Cockpit view, they were blocking too much of the...

    The Frame Underneath

    In reworking this model, the choices have been to adjust or replace those things that were the most visually objectionable. For the most part, the shape looked pretty good in my opinion, so very...

    Flight Models

    When I first started working on this model, the main purpose was to use it build a flight model for my P-39F.
    For some reason it seems to help to have a reasonable looking visual model when...

    The most obvious modification to the Nose Gear was to extend the strut by around 6 inches.
    The Nose Gear Component also needed to be split into separate pieces to be animated properly.
