    P-47 Progress Thread

    Hi guys,

    To stir things up a little (it's been rather quiet over here lately), I thought it might be a good idea to post some progress screenies of the P-47D. I took a break from modelling to texture some parts that I might publish as generic/shared aircraft components for use in future models or by other modellers. This particular bit is my rendition of the A-12 oxygen regulator (gmax screenie):

    Great screenie Joost. Sure it's for a P47 or a hospital oxygen supply system? Seriously does look very good.

    Are you doing your own textures, Joost? They look great!

    Yep, so far (John offered his help so who knows what the future brings...).

    Has anyone been following the PBR thread over at the FSX forum and the DCS thread on the upcoming F14A/B? Especially the video where they showed ambient light going around in the cockpit? There were finger smudges on the display behind the stick! FREAKING FINGER SMUDGES!! That sort of ultra-realistic texturing reduces my work to a 4-year old's finger painting exercise!

    It comes at a cost, though; the module appears to be a whopping 120 Gb. For a single aircraft. But not just any aircraft; a F-14!
    Anyway, I content myself with the fact that I did this all by myself and hopefully there will be a time where people will wonder how on earth could anyone texture a model without the use of additional software. And I will know the answer: With a lot of patience and time on one's hands...

    Yeah I have looking at that and the video for the DCS version here
    probably a lot easier when one can go around an actual in service aircraft and take pictures showing real usage; can't do that with many WWII aircraft.
