Thread: Howard 500 N4362F

    Thanks, Duckie! Some of these older models like this one take some time when nothing is round or flat or line up just right. Looks good drawing them up in a graphics program until you see it in 3d.

    Right now it's a little artsy like all the bling that aircraft don't have but until I finish the rest of the model it's fun to see. Those strips on the cowl are four parts and not all are the same size making fun to line up. Will be adding the pinstriping that goes in the white background. The fuselage rivets are about right for a painted aircraft thus the wings will look like that later.



    Rivets are now flush on the cowl flaps not what I did before. Same with the smaller fastners with no slots yet.

    Thanks! Factory new right out of Dee's facilities it will be. Giving the Howard one last leg in the virtual universe.

    Just like this one.

    Here's a comparison shot. All this time I thought there was a ring band just after the cowl covers. The red band on the N500LN was actually a painted stripe no band.
    Will update that with no band.

    Looking marvelous, Ted ! Love the engine cowling color and detail (post #51 third picture) !

    Also in the first pic of post #51, is there a way the VC glass and reflectivity can be made like that of the two cabin windows shown (ie. less 'blue') ?
    Cheers,

    Thanks! Favor this big twin. Thought I would give her one last shot!

    That I don't know, do like the way the windows look in FS9 models. Looks to me the cabin and cockpit windows are tied together change one change them all.
    Also, the cockpit window frame can only be black so it can't match the color of the fuselage.

    Fun with stripes... best way copy all three panels and paste them all in one texture layer, then draw the lines for those stripes. All nice and tidy!

    I haven't touched it for a while now but after experiencing the new MSFS (alpha tester), I need to brush up on painting. Been working on the warp metal effects.

    All pic are flown in P3Dv3 below.

    Also two issues I have with the FSX model is there seems to be no spec textures for the flaps and the right flap extends thru the top wing.

    TuFun, that turned out great! Not that I was expecting anything less, based on all of your previews. Well done.

    WOW!! Having seen the real N500HP up close at Oshkosh, I'm not sure which version I like more. The real one, or yours!! Beautiful work, TuFun. Hoping this gets released.

    Thanks, guys for bringing this up! Focus here is a redo on the tails rivets and panels (wip), then convert them flush rivets.

    Update for you guys. Pretty much happy with the tail section. Starring at a boatload of pics so I think I got it about right.

    P3Dv3 pics...

    Looks better than the real McCoy TuFun


    What model name are you using that causes the flaps to show thru the right wing? I thought I corrected those issues. What's the date on that model file?

    Two models have the flap issue.

    hw500passnt.mdl 4/15/2019 3:59PM 3,298 KB

    Could you also look at the spec file on the flaps? For some reason not working for me, so added more alpha to compensate somewhat.

    Complete redo on the fuselage thanks to Dee Howard Foundation drawings.

    Pressurized side...



    Stressed side, no pressurized bulges...

    It looks absolutely amazing. How many hours do you have in that texture now? However many, your love of the airplane shows.
