    Areoplane Heaven's FS2004/CFS3 P-47D

    Does any know of the FS2004/CFS3 P-47D Razorback that was offered from Areoplane Heaven many years ago? This super rare plane existed ,as evidence shows . Was offered with the CFS3 La-9 as a free gift with purchase of the La-9. Contacted AH ,but no reply as of yet. Can anyone help with this mysterious aircraft ? Anyone heard of it ? Any help will be greatly appreciated . Regards ,Scott

    It's odd that AH would replicate an existing cfs3 model only a year after its publication, I wonder if they had permission to use the SDK model and tweaked that?

    Seems that was a whole plethora of P-47's offered. A must have of this rare series !

    Never realized that Malcom Hoot thunderbolts were a thing...

    It's a shame they were never released, even though the P-47 was already represented in the stock game (and another one is on the way), more variety is always a good thing.

    I never realized that AH made a stuka and an He-111 in their BoB package...

    Any one else interested in the AH P47, here it is. The shaders play around with it, not sure how you would fix it. You'll see on the left side of the ac, that part of the fuselage between the rear of the wing and tail will be missing. Beyond me how to fix that,lol

    Thank you Eddie ! Maybe Andy or someone can take a look at the Razorback model/textures for a fix. The AH P-47D Bubble top canopy version doesn't have this problem. Regards, Scott

    The transparent panel is caused by the Alpha layer included in ah_p47D_malcom_tail_t.dds.

    You can safely delete the alpha layer to make that panel a solid color.

    The current texture has that area as black which look weird as the matching ah_p47D_malcom_tail_r.dds is shaded for it to be reflective bright metal, so you probably want to repaint it.

    Thanks Andy ! Sounds like a job for a skilled painter. Maybe someone can tackle this. I'm just now learning photoshop ,so it may be a while for me to do. Regards, Scott

    I redid the prop texture to have 4 blades, but the skin textures could stand a rework to even up the patchwork of panel colors.

    Here are the effect entries for the AH_P47D Malcom gunsight and instrument lights
    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="US_AAF_L3_gunsight" PosX="0.045" PosZ="-1.20" PosY="1.060" Pitch="90.0" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>
    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="cockpit_light_uv" PosX="-0.275" PosZ="-1.33" PosY="0.75" Pitch="100" Heading="20" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>
    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="cockpit_light_uv" PosX="0.275" PosZ="-1.33" PosY="0.75" Pitch="100" Heading="-20" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>

    and for AH_P47D_Bubble
    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="US_AAF_K14_gunsight" PosX="0.032" PosZ="-1.15" PosY="1.090" Pitch="90.0" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>
    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="US_AAF_K14_gunsight" PosX="-0.038" PosZ="-1.15" PosY="1.090" Pitch="90.0" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>
    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="cockpit_light_uv" PosX="-0.275" PosZ="-1.33" PosY="0.75" Pitch="100" Heading="20" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>
    <Effect Type="Track" EffectName="cockpit_light_uv" PosX="0.275" PosZ="-1.33" PosY="0.75" Pitch="100" Heading="-20" MinVel="-999999" MaxVel="999999"/>
