    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category Prepar 3D / P4D Add-Ons

    Description: Textures for the RAAF's two DHC-3 Otters.

    These aircraft were bought from De Havilland Canada in kit form, then assembled at Bankstown, Australia. Power units were taken from leftover stock after CAC Wirraway production ceased.

    The aircraft, serials A100-390 and -392 served with No.1 Air Trials Unit - a predecessor of the modern ARDU, based at RAAF Edinburgh between 1961-67, before being transferred to the Weapons Research Unit at Woomera - which was operating in support of the British nuclear testing program.

    After a short period of RAAF operations, the aircraft were sold to Short Brothers, who operated them on a government contract until 1980, registered VH-UPL, and VH-UPM.

    Both aircraft were crated and shipped to Canada at the end of the contract, and -392 was still flying in 2013.

    These textures were created using the JF paint kit and tested in P3D v4. They should work perfectly well in FSX and earlier versions of the P3D product.

    Thanks to Bazzar for his help and patience.

    For Pat.

    Hi Mike.
    It appears that the thumbnails provided by you are not the same as your repaints.

    Cheers Chris

    Ok - I forgot that FSX has not yet evolved past the need for Thumbnails. :P

    Uploading new version now.
