Thread: Planes you would like to see totally redone.

  1. #1

    Planes you would like to see totally redone.

    I would love to see a completely redone Dash 7 from Milton. I first flew on a Dash 7 during trial flights from Ottawa to Montreal. I fell in love with it. Although Milton's Dash 7 is still extremely nice, I wonder what it would be like if redone from scratch, It's Christmas, one can dream!

    ?????? It has been redone for FSX use unless you want it for P3D V4.3???? The only thing that the already redone Dash 7 needs is MORE FSX compatible repaints of airlines that used or are using Dash 7.

    I wrote exclusive review of FSX version of Dash 7. look for that review on those SOH forums

    I would prefer to see planes that never made it to FSX.

    A P-39 Aircobra, P-63 Kingcobra or a P-82 Twin Mustang would be nice. I'd even settle for a NATIVE B-25 Mitchell. I'm sure there's more I've forgotten.

    No need to tell me about those "under development." Rumors don't work for me any more.

    Like you say, it's almost Christmas and one can dream.

    I agree wholeheartedly WH. "Rumors" of aircraft "In Development" can be easily translated to mean. . ."Smoke". You see something that looks like a WIP shot, it's there and then "Poof" never seen again, lol.

    The A/T-37 comes to mind. . .one we've heard snippets about for years. . .smoke, lol. That's one reason I went after the AMX. . .a long time favorite of mine that no one was interested in and never going to do so I made it happen (thanks to Henk and Bluebear). The ones you mention are also on my "where are they now?" list.

    I would love a decent Junkers Ju88. I don't think I ever saw one for FS9 or FSX, let alone P3Dv4, but I can dream, right?
    Oh, and a good T-33 please

    A true, FSX native B-25 Mitchell would be great. One that is payware and I wish it were a native FSX aircraft with some visual improvements is the Piper Panther PA31 from FSD International.

    Well, I for one certainly understand what you are saying! And if I was going to make a Christmas Wish I would also wish for a Dash 7 with nice 3D gauges and switches etc. Of course I do love the one we have which flys very nice and is a pleasue to use (escept of course that I can not get the engines to start for the life of me!). Oh well, keep dreaming.

    Piglet's models, heck I'm still flying a few of them in P3Dv4, but would be great to get some small updates.

    Redone model for me.....Hawker Sea Fury ..Just love them. No disrespect for Flying Stations , I have theirs. its good. Thank you. But a Milviz version , accusim or suchlike would go down a treat

    These are not planes to be redone (they are just perfect), but I would enjoy so much to be able to reinstall Realair SF-260 and Decathlon with a new installer for FSX, as it was done for their Spitfire and Duke (cf http://realairsimulations.net). I miss them so much. If anybody has info about this... Many thanks in advance

    I'd like to see an updated Aerosoft Bronco honestly. I'm a bit biased towards air tanker operations. I think I'd rather just see an expansion pack for the Cal Fire models. The propellers are different these days and they operate 2 models of OV-10 now. I mean I'm sure someone could probably do a propeller modification somehow if they got permission from Aerosoft. But I know how that can go. I did a huge repaint pack for them in the modern liveries too. I fly only in P3D, but the Broncos were designed for FSX.

    I also enjoy bush flying, someone brought that up. I think it would be super fun if someone made an FSX/P3D native Draco modified Wilga or some other bush planes.

    'Vaporware' indeed!
    I really would ante up for a good P39 but the one 'mentioned in dispatches' long ago seems to have been abandoned.

    Disappointing.

    Not sure in you are specifically referring to Miltons excellent Freeware version or if you generally would like to see a newly built-from-scratch Version of a Dash-7.
    If so you might be in luck as Pilot‘s recently announced developement of one for P3d.
    However,no mention of a Fsx version and given the developement pace of their new Clipper version ,it might be a couple of years before it is published.

    Kind regards,

I'll take a look at how the Norseman converts perhaps later today...

    Preliminary look shows that I'll have to build totally new props for it. This is a very!!! old FS 2002 model and I admit I took a few short cuts with it back in the day (It was also one of my first models) Don't hold your breath but I'll see if I can make it work.
