    It's time to finalize the Loire 210

    Hi,

    It's time to move on to painting and coding "aircraft.cfg" and ".air" and more ...



    The export goes without problems.



    If you have documentation on this model, specialized French magazines or not you could help me to do something quite precise. I have a little but we can never have too much, thank's!

    I assume, gastonj, that you've exhausted the online aviation periodical resources of Gallica (Bibliothèque nationale de France) in your quest for information concerning the Loire 210.

    Oh, that looks fun. Nice work.

  4. #4
    Yes I did. Gallica is a great help for periodicals of that time ("L'air", "L'Aérophile", "Revue Société Générale Aéronautique", etc.)!

    Hi,

    The painting and what it takes to test is underway but there is a long way to go to finish it.





    The model will represent that embarked on the battleship Strasbourg which escaped from Mers el Kebir (July 1940) under the fire of the British guns.

    JMC,

    The model looks very nice. As promised I went through a complete pile of French magazines, but the cockpit of the Loire 210 must be one of the best kept secrets.
    Also a search on the internet wasn't very successful The best I could find was a instruction for the 1/72 SBS model, which showed that at least somebody must know how this cockpit looked.

    Sorry, but still very much looking forward to the model....

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Hello Huub,
    I start from the principle that the Loire 210 being contemporary with the Loire 46 (developed at the same time), I realize according to the same scheme assuming that, although French, the engineers have standardized the realization. On the other hand I am interested in any documentation which can always be useful by cross-checking data.
    Thank's!

    Sorry for the late reply, but this VC looks great again. As always I love the typical French lay-out which is completely different than others.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Hi,
    Thank's!
    It is true that with all these powerful models which are made available free of charge, my modest development can hardly raise enthusiasm. However it is going a bit as you can see on this video.

    JMC,

    Its not in the numbers, its about the quality of your fans . Keep developing, and the rest will follow eventually.............

    But as I most likely already said before, I and most probably quite some others with me are very happy with developers like you, who make models outside the main stream. The number of freeware developers is decreasing and payware developers mainly pick the aircraft which will sell.

    Because of people like you we are able to fly interesting aircraft like the Dewoitines (my personal favourites) and the Loire (which I most probably like very much as well). But its the same with for instance the Fokker D.XXI by Daan Kaasjager, you will only reach a smaller, but more motivated/enthusiastic audience.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Loire 210

    Bonjour Gaston,
    eh bien je ne peux que signer ce qu' écrit Huub.
    Et il ne faut pas oublier qu'il n y a plus d' avions francais de cette époque en vol, hélas.
    Ce qui fait que beaucoup moins de public ait une relation avec ces avions.
    Donc justement que tu fasses du travail qui attirera au début moins de la foule vaut un grand Bravo.
    Ah, j avais vu que tu avais essayé de m' envoyer un pm.
    Betement ma bal fut pleine. peux tu s' il te plait reessayer de me l' envoyer?

    Absolutely Gaston, your work is very much appreciated!
    Don't forget that most of forum members do not write messages but support anyway.
    You can see that with d/l numbers.
    A bientot

    Hi,
    I just wanted to say that when there is a lot of noise we keep quiet so as not to be inaudible. I will continue to make available what I have done.

    I really appreciate your work and always enjoy the eclectic and intriguing subject you painstakingly recreate for us Gaston.

    Hi,
    Thank you! Yes, I am interested in French aviation from the 30s to the 40s, particularly by planes that did not survive the French debacle of 40. Modeling allows you to get an idea of ​​what they were. I have no other concern. I make available what I have done, hoping of course that it will interest someone.
    For the Loire 210 I am finishing the cockpit. It lacks the radio, the wiring and some details to code as you can see below





    Screens are made on P3DV4.5 but the model is a FSX one.

    Gaston,

    Just chiming in to say I've really enjoyed your planes, and I'm very much looking forward to this one! One of the things I love about flight simulator is to be able to experience the history of flight, and you've tackled some interesting subjects I was barely aware of. Please know that there are many of us out who are excited every time you release something new, and if we forget to acknowledge it it's because we're so busy exploring the skies of France in them!

    Those VC instruments look delightful.

    This project reminds me of the best part of Tintin stories I enjoyed as a kid ... the old retro airplanes! The L 210 will be perfect for finding the "Shooting Star" ....

    Looking forward to this.

    Thanks for those previews of the outstanding gauge design. This is going to be a lot of fun to fly.
