    Aeroplane Heaven Javelin Gloster FAW9 preview

    Interesting news!




    So we decided to make ... another Gloster. Work in progress hence the blacked out cockpit. To get some of the questions out of the way.
    1. FAW9 with the British radar.
    2. "That" livery will be done.
    3. No tacpack functionality.
    4. The other projects we have on are progressing nicely.
    5. Yes we listened to Kenny Loggins exclusively during most of the build.

    It's actually called the Gloster Javelin, from the manufacturer of the Gladiator and the Meteor, amongst others. One of my favourite jets from that era (I used to have a metal scale model of it) so I'm looking forward to it!

    Be nice to get an updated version of this Brit classic.

    As much as I like to see some oddballs in the sim, I have the faint feeling that there won't be much of a market for this bird lest it comes with some features that would truly make it special (see A2A Stratocruiser).

    That's ok Bjoern. As sentient beings who like aircraft sometimes we make/develop things just for the giggles see the Mitsubishi zero and the Miles. We thank you for your concern and advice.

    This will be in my new hanger (PC)!

    After the Meteor, this will be a very interesting one, you do have to like the very interesting, what we need now is an RAF base or maybe a 1950/60's Farnborough scenery to display the types

    Out and In..!

    When this one comes 'Out', I will for-sure be 'In' ! .......The Javelin is true 'old-time heavy-metal' and that's good enough for me, no matter how 'interesting' or 'un-interesting' it may seem. She's on the Bucket-list !!

    All these 50's and 60's jets were important steps in aviation history. The Javelin took over from the Meteor as the RAF's front-line fighter. These were the Spitfires of their day. We love them all.

    Please continue to do the 'oddball' aircraft! There are enough Cessnas and P-51s.

    Points 2 and 5 need more clarification.

    In so far that the Javelin was an RAF fighter, I'd agree, but the similarity ends there. The RAF elders of my family weren't very impressed with the aircraft. That said, it's something different and quite interesting, and may well be my first A.H. purchase. Well done on your choice of subject - it looks very nice indeed.

    Well, if money ain't an issue, develop away!

    With that said....please make your next giggle fest centered around either BAC 221 or TSR2. although if $$ is or isn't a problem, I think the TSR2 would fetch you $$.

    This one looks great BTW. Fine choice.

    Interesting plane! Will the deep stall characteristics due to the delta-T-tail configuration be represented in the FM?<o></o>

    Looks like it. At least we are getting all sorts of interesting challenges, programming the flight dynamics right now!

    Not everything a person/company does has to be about the biggest returns. In this case it's closer to a personal project that we just wanted to do and hope that other people like it. I think most modellers have that folder (or 4! ) of projects, which whilst might not be a super commercial success, they just want to make one.

    Point clarification for the fellow who wanted it.
    Point 2 :
    That livery is the redwhite XH897 which features on the cover of scale aviation modeler magazine october 2003.

    Point 5 :
    It's not an f14 but it certainly puts you in the mind of a maverick who lives in a dangerous zone

    Oh and dont think that the British cornered the market with oddball aircraft. Our American cousins had some interesting stuff as well.

    This is the scheme, for those who want to view it.

    More power to those who want to take a chance on developing aircraft like these. I'll buy it, at least.

    Ah, yes..

    Just so happens I'm reading about the Gloster Javelin at the moment. My second read of "Jet Jockeys - Flying the RAF's first jet fighters" by Peter Caygill. First chapter was on the Meteor and the last chapter on the Javelin. Very fascinating perspective on the technical and flight history from pilots of the era.
