    Coming to Your Hangars soon.

    The long wait is almost at an end. Team Daedalus is nearing the first release of a brand new, super detailed Bf109G-6 model for CFS2.

    We would also like to welcome our new SCASM development member, mav, to the team.


    No other aircraft epitomized the rise and fall of the German Luftwaffe in WWII more than the Messerschmitt Bf109. It was continuously developed as the war went on and was produced in a progression of types. Besides its primary role as a fighter, the 109 was also used as a fighter bomber, reconnaissance, night fighter, and a trainer. From 1943 through the end in 1945, the Bf109G versions were the backbone of the Jagdwaffe in the skies of East, West and Mediterranean Fronts.


    The first release will be the Bf109G-6. Because the G-6 was manufactured in 3 widely separated factories and bombing disruption difficulties in the supply chain, different armament, and theater equipment, there were many different variations of the basic G-6. There was no one standard version.
    As they are completed, there will be a number of individual models, no two exactly alike. So watch for the upcoming announcements. There just might be later versions of the Bf109G as well.

    Cockpit details of the new Bf109G-6 - pics

    Detailed model cockpit



    Historically correct 2D panel. Alternate Win7/10 version included. The eye viewpoint is positioned so that the offset Revi 16B gun sight works with the CFS2 aiming reticle (mav's idea). The VC closely mimics the 2D panel. The Revi 16b gun sight is animated so it is in the stowed position for landing and take off, and in ready position in flight. Note the CFS2 reticle sight is replaced with the correct Revi reflector sight once it is in the ready and locked position.

    Messerschmitt Bf109G-6 a few pre-release detail pics

    Here are a few more features of the upcoming Messerschmitt Bf109G-6 release:

    Operating wing leading edge slats

    open



    closed



    Correct Bf109 flaps and radiator flap operation.

    Radiator flaps open



    Radiator flaps open and flaps fully down for landing.



    Radiator flaps closed and flaps fully down for landing. Note the 10 degree to 40 degree flap position marks on the outer flap.



    Fully modeled prop blades - no flat polygon here.



    We are getting much closer - working on drop tanks, ordinance, and racks now.

    Update

    Suppose I should step in here, as the Captain is away.

    We are looking at a mid-October release of the first few models. We have actually branched out beyond the basic G-6, and eventually the releases will include other G sub-types as well.

    This is a CFS2 model, multi-LOD, based upon Paul Rebuffat's original design. Mav is optimizing the models for framerates, Captain Kurt is slapping paint, and I'm tweaking the visual model, as well as adding some bells and whistles. We look forward to sharing our work with you!


    Paul
