    I think Rob initially planned to include this one... Very much a WIP!

    Nice one. Ya know, some of these repaints show the IRF refuel probe on the nose and some don't. The basic model doesn't feature this.
    Any repaints that have this nose will not show I guess mainly because the model doesn't feature this.

    I like the ones without the IFR probe, the ones with that probe remind me of a unicorn.

    Always following threads relating to Rob's aircraft.

    Back in the day when I was enthusiastically kit-bashing styrene my interest in USN/USMC aviation had me researching details like a man obsessed!
    Typical IPMS behavior.
    IIRC the 'bare metal' leading edges on most of the carrier borne aircraft were painted with 'Corraguard', or something named like that.
    It was a long time ago.

    IIRC you can configure it however you want.. In the VC, the 3 upper left arming switches.
    I believe also that the switches use unused flight sim commands/variables so the configuration may get saved in a saved flight.
    It is all in the readme.

    The coating you are talking about was translucent, sort of an anti-corrosion feature. The leading edges/fence leading edges were bare metal.

    IFR Probe

    When using ther "L" lights key, I noticed that there are a couple other visuals that take place

    1. Under wing fuel tanks/bombs show.

    2. IFR fuel probe (toothpick) visiable.

    Is there a way to configure just the lights to function and not (1) and or (2) above?

    I see photos of the real cougars without that IFR probe and some with and, wonder how

    the models without that fuel probe on the on the nose could refuel inflight.

    Edit: I did find this article that explains some of the retrofits and modification to the real planes.
    It mentions the retrofit of "Splitter plates" which may relate to the retrofilt of the IFR probe.
    Other photos I see of cougars show no evidence of a fuel probe at all.

    Seem like the IFR probe was an afterthought.

    F9F variants

    I found this interesting link to the development of the real deal and the variants:

    Looks like that IFR probe was added to the F9F-8 model - which was that last variant.
    So, the earlier version just didn't have the IFR probe
    Scroll to bottom of link for variant info:

    I'll start uploading by the end of the week. Seven repaints in all. Three single seat Cougars, three Banshees and one Cougar trainer.
    These planes deserve far more repaints than have been done so far!

    Beautiful work Cees, looking forward to the download. Keep em coming.

    Really liking the VX-5 Cougar Cees. The green stripes really make it pop. (I like the old AMT Tigercat model that had the green cowlings and wing/fuselage bands too. Not the same unit though. It was a Marine bird.)

    I uploaded the Banshee-skins.
    Tomorrow I'll be gone for a three day to the Ardennes. The other skins will have to wait untill I'm back.

    This one is uploaded to the library.

    This repaint depicts the VT-26 TF-9J Cougar BuNo 142965 at NAS Chasefield, circa 1968. Have fun!

    Great looking aircraft and paint. Saw several of these on the ramp at Pensacola in 1968 while visiting a buddy there.

    Forgot to include the readme!

    Cees

    This is a repaint of the wonderful F9F-8T Cougar by Robert Richardson. It's based on the provided paintkit. To install these repaints: 1. copy the contents of the zip-file to the Grumman F9F-8T Cougar-map in the airplanes folder, 2. copy the content of the aircraft.cfg.txt file in this download to the aircraft.cfg in the Grumman F9F-8T Cougar-map in the airplanes folder. Change the 'x' to the correct number. Done!
    Have fun!
