    B26B FSX Native Marauder Painters Release Beta 1.0

    G'day Friends,

    The B26B/C Marauder has been converted to FSX native and is available for painters who would like to express themselves through this aircraft.

    This is a fresh conversion to FSX native of the project I started on the FS9 side.

    The package contains a full flyable aircraft container (aliased sounds), 2048 paint templates for the exterior and interior with lots of interior references categorized by area of the aircraft interior.

    The flight model was done by Tom Falley (Fliger) and is a great hand flyer.

    Lots of operational data can be found in the DOCS folder.

    This package is a community development effort meant for you to paint, modify, and share your work with others.
    Paint work is required for the exterior, interior, panel and VC. Gauges are provided for the panel layout but you may change as you wish.

    The exterior model provides no spec or bump support yet but that will follow shortly. I removed that so your primary liveries would display properly.
    There are spec and bump basic "placeholders" provided.

    There are a few interior animations that need tweaking, some dummy switch/lever animations to be added.

    Read the included readme related stuff and have some fun.

    You are welcome to distribute your finalized product as you wish (as freeware) with the full model package. Just include original docs.

    AFAIK, there are no further modifications required to mapping anywhere, only the specs/bumps to be added.

    You are welcome Sir. She's not much to look at now without the artists' textures but she's okay until those paints come.

    It's just an experiment my friend. My goal is to get a native HMS Victory in FSX.

    I hope you do Steve; that would be great. Hopefully, many will be contributing their expressions of the Marauder on this one.

    My purpose on this is to release this as a community project and everyone can mix and match the things they want to build their version of the Marauder.
    Meanwhile I will be on to the next project so you all may evolve this as you please, share your work to help flesh this one out.
    I'll have at least one more update to finalize any tweaks to the model and texture properties.
    After that, it's yours.

    Remember folks, this is the long wing version representing the B and C models.

    Spent this afternoon on this and here are some progress shots. Just straight paints, no alphas yet. Also converted to DXT5 DDS and shown in P3D V3.4.

    Very cool Duckie tackling this one... an all time favorite bomber! Will be watching this one.

    There is an update pending for minor changes to the nacelles (to fix a see-thru leak with flaps down) and gear bay door inside faces maps.

    I will post Sunday (my time - GMT-7). Not major things but necessary.

    Thanks to Duckie for discovering the issues. :-)

    Are alpha and specular and bumps active or at least active via place holders? If so I'd be happy to try my hand on this one too! Looks awesome!

    Here are my first brush strokes on the B26 thank you milton for this beautiful model.
    And I am very excited to be able to also begin to paint the next Havoc.

    Oh wow! I really like that paint scheme ferondoe; nice artwork there too. Thank you for sharing this one.

    You shouldn't have to wait long now on the Havocs paint kits (A-20C, G, P-70A1, A2). Wellis is doing some final tweaks on them now.

    Was playing around with the painters beta 1.2 and was looking at some of the animation, and it appears to my untrained eye that when I pull back on my joystick and the elevators tilted down, and when I pushed forward on the control, the elevator tilted upward, the opposite of what I would have expected.

    Fantastic job on that paint job ferondoe!
