    Martin Marauder Gold for FS9 has been released

    Been wanting to do this for a few years now. Just started yesterday.

    This project will be managed differently.

    I will model it and map it for textures, put together a basic VC panel/gauges, and flight model.

    Then I will release the package for you to finish as you wish.

    Paint, sounds, panel textures, and effects will be on you. :-)

    Might be a fun way to get folks involved.

    EDIT: By the way, if anyone has access to a POH or Maintenance manual, that would be helpful.
    EDIT2: Now have teh POH and Training manuals; thanks.

    Also, the main gear works totally different on the Marauder. If anyone knows of a video that shows gear retraction/extension, that would be helpful.
    I have a few basic cockpit pics but if you have access to a "plethora" of such, that too would be helpful. :-)

    Early short wing or later long wing? Either way it sounds like a fun project.

    Another nice project Milton. When I have my real life sorted out by the time you are ready to do the mapping I volunteer for the external textures.

    Cheers,

    Thank you Huub. This is going to be a higher fidelity exterior model than one we have now so that should yield a better visual experience overall.

    Sadly, I don't have an operating manual for the Marauder, my operating manuals are DC-3, B-29, and A-26 Invader.

    This is certainly great news, I don't think there has been a detailed Marauder for FS9 since Dave Eckert's superb model, which I'm still flying. I got a CD player installed in that ol' bird.... probably will put one in this model too.

    Any news of projects from "Shupe Industries" is always great news.

    Yes! Milton doing a Marauder, this is amazing. I can't help too much with the D, but as for the short wing, which is my favorite variant, I can give you:

    A documentary showing the stages of building a B-26, including a landing gear retraction/extension test (external and internal shots):
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnb0Ib5F9GU

    And the Pilot's Manual for the B-26-MA, B-26A and B-26B:

    I hope they're of use to you

    That was my observation as well, and yet even with age it gets a lot of play and attention. Yes, time for a newer version and I hope that together, SOH contributors can evolve a nice one for FS9 standards.

    Working on the "D" model, 71' wing span now and the large air intakes for the double dust filters.

    I may do the short wing span, but then you get into a lot of changes with the wings, nacelles and rear fuselage, and the flight model is much different.

    Just have to see how it goes.

    EDIT: The "B-50" is also part of these plans.
