    I contacted Alex Vtlas (Simworks) this morning about the status of their Phantom. He told me that all they've done thus far is to port the files over, so eventually they can begin working on it. No set time frame for even that at this point. He told me, quote, "You can see it in the hangar or runway, but it flies like a Mooney Bravo. It just looks more ballsy." End quote.

    All for now! NC

    I can't show anything YET for obvious reasons but what I can say as i'm working the Phantastic old girl, and will stick my neck out on the line for the Phantom about it, is that i've been upscaling textures into 8K (gotta give the rivet/panel line decal guy a good guide!), On Panel lines alone I've covered the bases off of Pre KY-28 Secure Voice System/Speech Security System installation, post KY-28 install (known as Door 629), Door 19 Mod 3 variation, Door 19 Mod 5c Variation (now why would I do Door 19 Mod 5c I wonder?), all the prior antennae are still present covering a whole slew from things like Shoehorn Mods 1 & 2, AN/ALQ-126 on the intakes.... etc... if you're familiar with the SWS Phantom you're familiar with this anyway, it's a ways off yet as Alex says but it's somewhat active development while sorting the PC-12... i'm being really pedantic about Phantom and can certainly remember many evenings chatting with NavyChief about some of the little things to get it feeling like a Phantom should back on the P3D update of it! and can certainly remember talking about the PMTC Phantoms!
