Thread: Resuming work at the workshop

    Hello Huub,

    It's more encouraging now that I can just relax by flying..But working on the VC is really a big work.
    I had a hard time giving her a passable silhouette.

    Bumping....

    Hello,

    Back from hollidays! Work is 50% done. I am quite late...just a quick and dirty video from a test fly ....I am working on the CV but texturing is not complete.

    One picture :



    and the movie (1920x1080) here : https://youtu.be/gGZ-yY-VMCE

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the video Gaston, great looping . It will be an interesting aircraft to fly, with the original French gauges

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Hello,
    Oops ...It's really a heavy job! The CV is 65% done. Modeling French gauges of the time is a hard work that begins with a painstaking search for documentation to do something quite realistic. For example the gauge shown is the electric generator (magneto). Above this box a launch command flares because the French military aircraft of that time had no landing lights.
    Everything is done in 3D and animated. But could anyone make an effect that could simulate a flare? This could be controlled by this case.
    Some screens :



    magneto and bomb dropper...



    Fortunately Blender allows work on different layers!

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    Some news,I am overwhelmed by the problems and the number of details to take into account but but I have some progress.

    First, the smoothing was quite bad...I had to improve it, that's done for now as you can see :



    French gauges of this time were very specific and you have to create them from scratch like these ones :

    The radio set



    and some gauges related to the weapons and fuel .




    The CV is quite done, the compressed air starter Viet and some cables remain to be positioned, some pictures :





    That's all folks!

    ....Ahhhh.....that'd be one heck of a Ryan ST......re-pleat with a vee-twelve engine, wing mounted machine guns, and a twenty-mil' Hispano firing through the prop hub.

    ......I want me one of THOSE!

    Hi,

    Some progress but not enough to my taste. Alpha version will be delayed to november early days. Cockpit is quite finish with
    right gauges (french ones of this time) at right places. some exceptions due to the lack of documentation,
    but I continue looking for.
    Now I am coding specific gauges and I would like the operations to be most in line with those of the time. It's very different from what we know
    today, very French like, for example, the engine starting by compressed air + gas in the cylinders ignited by sparks from
    a manual magneto !

    Some screens (textures are subject to change) :

    The cockpit (with perspective deformations due to heavy zoom)



    Just a flight at dusk



    before landing in your simulator, end of year...sorry!



    Note that this aircraft was put into service the same year as the Boeing peashooter ...

    It really looks absolutely stunning Gaston and its always great to receive another update from you.

    Before WWII nearly every country had its own technical history and traditions and approach to seal with things. Your model really is a French as French can be. I assume that even the throttle will work the "wrong way" around .

    When we look at this model now, we see an aircraft which was obsolete when WWII started. I guess that's the way our brains work. But when it was released it must have been an absolute sensation. To put things in perspective; this Dewoitine was introduced already two years before the British introduced the Gloster Gladiator as their new front line fighter........... And it had its first flight even long before the Germans flew their Heinkel He.51 for the first time.

    Again, thanks for the update and as always really looking forward to fly it

    Hello,

    The throttle works the wrong way of course!

    Just a screen more accurate of the CV :



    Compressed air starter and radio set are more visible.

    Impressive work! I know I'm only repeating myself, but I'm really impressed by the effort you put in this model

    Cheers,

    Looking great. You are making the wait worthwhile.

    Wow, great looking model of a very unique machine!
    Looking forward to the release of this one for sure!

    Alpha ...soon!

    Hi,

    Now it's time to finalize the alpha version 3D, code, and flight model by JP Bourgeois.

    Just a look at what is done.

    First engine effect at hight power :




    Maybe be the final state of the CV



    and last a video showing the cold and dark start process with the Viet air compressed engine starter. It's a full HD preliminary video that you can get here !

    JMC

    That cold start really IS something... And ALL is working....

    Man, you are terriffic!!

    Hat's off,

    hertzie.

    Terrible ce cockpit!!!
    Quel travail...

    This era is not my cup of tea but I am intrigued by this airplane. Itís a real looker and such a fantastic job modeling it. Will get this for sure.

    you are a master craftsman!

    Hi,
    The beta version is in test. If all goes well, an output version 0.9 for the end of the month. Two new textures :

    One French Navy



    And the third, French Air Force "Cigognes"

    Hello,

    Just a video showing the actual state of the flight model.
    The model passes all the figures of aerobatics but it is more difficult to master than a Cessna 172 (lol)

    This is where it is : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OheI6Zr4Hqw&t=104s
