    Howard Aero Hangar

    I'm putting this together to give anyone who wants it a place to hangar their collection of Howard Aircraft. It is done in a style similar to that of the Hangar Dee Howard had in San Antonio. The opening measures 30'H x 110'W x 162'D. Large enough to hangar 2 C-47's or any number of other aircraft.

    This will be a single scenery object that you can place anywhere you want.

    Just to be a bit more specific. . ."each opening" meets the measurements I mentioned. . .just in case someone thought that was the "entire" opening size. Ya never know, JS

    More to be done, but at least now there's color.

    Looking good, Ed ! Thanks.

    That is looking amazing! I'll have to get some help in placing the object in the scenery....something I've not tried before. I'm a bit late to the party.

    Work is complete, I'm just doing a test placement at one of my airports to see how it works (FSX and P3D_V4.4).

    Nice work Ed. Of course one of the airports it will have to be placed at is San Antonio International Airport.

    Like Sundog said, and then...


    Looks fantastic, Ed. Looking forward to parking a few of my Howard 500s in it, along with Uncle Milton's beautiful Howard 350!


    Thank you for this excellent hanger.

    Reminds me of the personal hanger Bill Lyon included in his fantastic payware Waco YMF-5 for FS2002, which I still have. (Need to dig that out and see if it will work inP3Dv4.)

    Really, really nice! Like the way it is surrounded around the back with those very good looking trees.
    Well I've been to one World Fair a picnic and a rodeo and that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard come over a set of earphones.

    I found a place for it in my North Texas Regional scenery. I had a bare spot at the end of Rwy 17 where the Alert Hangar was during my days at Perrin AFB. Perfect fit and it allows a direct taxi to and take off from 17. . .no turns no stopping.

    Had a few texture problems and ended up retexturing the entire lot. Done now and here are some shots as it's positioned (finally) at North Texas Regional (previously Grayson County).

    Ed, are you going to share the whole modified North Texas Regional with the hangar? I for one would really enjoy having a plug-and-play scenery with your hangar! Thanks either way.

    That looks amazing! I have to say I'm in awe of the talent I see displayed in these pages, day-to-day.

    My original thought was to make the hangar, by itself, a scenery object that one could place wherever they wished. Looking through the volumes of stuff I've uploaded here I can't see that I ever released North Texas Regional (it was the second airport I completed that had custom buildings and satellite imagery . . .Sherman Municipal was the first). The hangar itself can be released very easily (probably by tomorrow evening). The airport might take a bit longer as I need to be sure everything is contained in the correct folders before zipping everything up. That could be done by Saturday some time.

    I can paint planes but am indebted to folks like you for the scenery.
    Looking forward to both, Ed.

    Exactly reaction. Ed you are the best GA airport scenery maker around.
    Well I've been to one World Fair a picnic and a rodeo and that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard come over a set of earphones.

    They're just objects expat. I'm having a problem with MCX right now. When I try to minimize the drawcalls it's kicking out an "unhandled exception" error message. I've never gotten that before when using MCX and I've used it for years. Posted the specifics over at FSDevelopers and just waiting to see what might be causing it. Til then I can't get the hangar converted.
