    Avia 56 FSX Native - Wheels, Floats, Amphib, Skis

    Next in line for FSX Native conversion well in progress.

    We have wheels, floats, amphibs, and skis in both passenger and cargo configurations.

    Here are some shots of the wheel and floats versions WIP.

    LOL Pete.

    Yup, these are great hand-flyers, torque-y engines, no bad habits, even the water friendly versions.

    Love how after take off initial climb-out, you can just pull the throttle back a bit, coarsen the prop pitch and you can feel the torque lurching you ahead. :-)

    Great sounds and liveries by the Man himself, Nigel, and some great paints by Matt Wynn.

    Yes, as I recall, it was because of you that this series was done due to a pic you posted of the Avia 51 that really impressed me.

    The whole Avia series will be converted in due time.

    Down to the last model to convert, the amphib cargo version.
    Lots of models involved in the four packages so a bit time consuming.

    Ah, thanks ... conversion is completed. Now time to go over all the details to see what needs to be corrected. Things are looking good.

    Unfortunately, I have no bump/spec maps to enhance appearances but I have included neutralized bumps/specs and the materials support and capability to add them.

    Deleted, after a long day putting up X-mas decorations with SWMBO I can't seem to test anything correctly.

    Dear Milton and Avia team... another fine gem from the masters. This wonderful creation took me out of my comfort zone and put me on my toes. One gets used to the luxury of flaps and buckets of power up front. It's like getting nipped by a strange dog. You stop and say to yourself, " I should have expected that. That was stupid on my part." You brought back the feel of real stick, rudder and power. I just mentioned in another thread, try this on Falcon409's N30 with a slight crosswind. You WILL pay attention..if you don't want to bend it. Great job on FDE, textures and most definitely the sound. Not sure that Jake was as powerful as it sounds, but it does sound BIG. Thanks again to all of you for bringing this jewel to life......Great Job! Terry
