    First 2 AVRO aircraft packages...

    Thank you all, Gentlemen :-)

    I have so far released the first 2 aircraft in the AVRO Project series:


    1. AVRO 621 (Armstrong Siddeley Mongoose engine)




    2. AVRO 621 Trainer (Armstrong Siddeley Lynx engine)



    These 2 aircraft represent the initial AVRO 621 design and development stages leading up to the AVRO 621 Tutor, AVRO 626 Prefect, and AVRO 646 Sea Tutor floatplanes.

    The AVRO 621 Tutor package will be ready for release by next weekend, to be followed by the AVRO 626 Prefect, AVRO 646 Sea Tutor, and AVRO/PWS-18 Polish licence-built Trainer.

    Once the aircraft packages have been released, I will make a paintkit available for all aircraft.

    E N J O Y !!! :-)

    Thanks Robin :-)

    The SAAF variant will be among the many liveries for the AVRO 621 Tutor package scheduled for release next weekend.

    Thanks for the inspiration and reference pics for that one, my friend.

    It's a magnificent series Nigel. The model and texture details are incredible. Flying these airplanes is wonderful.

    Thanks to you and all the people who contributed to the project.

    Incredible work! It looks stunning!!!

    Sadly, I can't get this model to work in P3Dv4 - probably because (I think) P3Dv4 expects an interior/VC mdl file as well as the usual exterior one.

    I could get away with it in P3Dv3, but not v4. Does anyone know a way around this?

    Better still ... Nigel ... do you think you might, at some stage in the future, get around to creating a version that includes a VC?

    The airfraft have fully functional VCs, I didn't however include 2D panels which may be added at a later date.

    Regarding P2Dv4, I know that DaveGW has successfully run the models through MCX for personal use. Hopefully he may be willing to share his files with other users until we have proper FSX Native models up and running.

    Hello Nigel,
    First off all, thanks a million for this gem.
    I'm honest, i couldn't resist and have succsessfully
    converted the AVRO's.
    They looks and flies brilliant.
    I would share the files, if DaveGW won't.

    Very much obliged indeed, and BRAVO Ulrich :-)

    If you would be willing to share your amazing conversion with other P3D users I'm sure they would be most grateful, Sir.
    Many Thanks.
