    My thanks and congratulations for such an excellent thread. The elements here clearly point to what makes this such a congenial community and flight simulation site, and goes some of the way in explaining the special feeling every time one visits.

    Here's some more. I just saw this uploaded today on Avsim and I just tried it out quickly so no screenshots but it's worth a plug IMHO.

    Too bad that Tim-HH already did the Lufthansa version...

    Found some nice work for the MK30 that caught my eye. The paints are for the wrong fuselage, but nicely done.

    FS2004 DeHavilland Super Chipmunk MK30. Art Scholl's Super Chipmunk - Art Scholl remains one of the greatest aerobatic performers of all time. Year after year, from the late 1950s to the mid 1980s he added unique airshow flourishes, like riding on his own wing, aerobatics with his dog Aileron nestled in the cockpit behind him, picking up a ribbon near the ground with his vertical fin and dramatically flying a low-level outside loop from the top down. Textures only; requires CHPMNK04.ZIP and CHIPMK12.ZIP. Model by Rick Piper.

    Excellent LIRF and not all that bad on frames.... (relatively, especially for the detail involved)

    FS2004 Scenery--Tolmachevo - 2008 (UNNT), Novosibirsk, Russia. The main features of "Tolmachevo-2008" scenery are the scenery has been developed considering changes that have taken place within the last three years; a photo-terrain of the airfield and surroundings has been created; the airport has been moved to its actual position; the scenery's area has been noticeably extended: a complex of warehouses to the south of the airport, military area buildings and the city of Ob have been added; a visual model of the runway lighting equipment has been created--it consists of runway lights, aproach lights and PAPI lights; moving airport vehicles and active jetways have been introduced; new models and textures of the airport vehicles have been made. By Tolmachevo Team: Fedor Burakov (a.k.a. Hawker) scenery design and Usachev Pavel AFCAD and information support. (See also UNNT_104.ZIP)

    way the heck out there but worth a stop in a heavy jet... i mean, how many folks fly to Kazakhstan or there abouts. UNNT is north of that!

    Remember: It's break ground, and fly into the wind..

    Today I downloaded the Armstrong Whitworth Argosy by Rick Piper. Somehow I had never noticed this one before. It has a good VC and exterior model considering it was already released in 2005.

    It is a bit more of a challenge to fly because the engines can overheat or ice up. So read the manual before your first flight or you could have a nasty surprise mid flight.

    Although there's a lot of Combat Flight Simulator related stuff, thought I'd share this too. Browse through it. There's got to be something for everyone's liking

    Wink Shadows ?


    Boeing Stearman Model 75 Duster and Sprayer package
    IMHO it's some problems of shadows rendering for this Stearman ....
    I'm sure .. the plane is not floating above the ground (if I modify the contacts points the wheels will sink in the ground but the shadow will stay weird)

    a freeware gem i keep coming back too

    Piglets T33 will always be in my hanger, after reinstalling FS9, she's the first add-on plane installed, easy to fly but challanging enough to be fun,
    i esp like the larg amount of paints you can download, there dos'nt seem to be an airforce that did'nt fly the T33. here's some of my fav's

  12. #212
    Yep, this T-Bird is still amazing!
    One (of the several) things I love on Piglet's planes is the varying appearance of the bare metal panels: Each of those tin plates looks different!

    A very nice plane indeed. Funny thing is: it landed in my FSX hangar just two weeks ago

    Another one from

    I love French fighters as they are really diffenrent. And Restauravia's model of the MB.152 is very nice and should definitely be mentioned here in my opinion.


  15. #215
    This is reallly a good thread !!! How about the DSB F-5s, F-20s, and the UH-1 Hueys. And don't forget all the freeware that Alphasim has.

  16. #216
    Well if you're going DSB/Iris, don't forget about the updated Tornados and the Mig-27 available here.

    Where did you get this B-57 paint ?

    One more gem to be added (strange that it hasn't been mentioned before...):

    It's the AFG Beechcraft Kingair 300.
    I know - it smells like a boyscout camp full of coleman lanterns, but it's terrifying well modeled and textured and flies like a dream.

    Get it here:

    Btw: This is a little sneak preview for my next repaint...
    Please keep the secret!

    It looks like this has finally run its course. I'm going to leave it stuck here for another week, and in the meantime I'll start compiling all of the links in a single file. Once that's done, I'll have to figure out a good way to find a permanent spot for everything...

    Some planes quickly, before it's too late...
    Too lazy to go through everything (Thanks in advance, Tom) so maybe some have been mentioned.
    Google is your friend here: the information will probably take you to your favourite download site anyway.

    Wozzastang in photoreal liveries (here by Javis) remains a firm favourite gem:

    Absolutely not my kind of aircraft, but lovely model:

    Nemeth original, get the "customised" version upgraded by the folks at Hovercontrol. Just brilliant.

    Low 'n slow, and highly aerobatic?
    Makes a Moth look silly. Gorgeous model.

    A stalwart, some outside-the-square thinking too.
    Possibly the best original sound in Flight Simulator:

    Stunning 65th anniversary model, can't think what you do with it, other than fly over the Channel:
