    You know, lately between Milton, Marcus, the recent Carenado sale, and the host of civilian aviation enthusiasts here at SOH, I am slowly being persuaded that military might not be the only way to enjoy this hobby!

    (I hope the -101 sneaks in there, too)

    I second Marcus' question. Need a cargo Dash!

    I'll third that. Cargo doesn't scream and whine as much as passengers do when I'm putting in for short final and need to go into a 70 degree bank.

    Good point!! That is why I drove courier instead of taxi in my younger days.

    Unlike this one that will definitely "Haul the Mail" LOL Too much fun. She runs the quarter a little slow on first try but she will do 380MPH in the quarter before I am done. :isadizzy:

    Well, right now she is a -103 convertible between passenger and cargo with removable seats. Now sure how she will end up.

    Oh well, I have some business that needs attending to before I get serious, so fun and games for now.

    Oh, I found the loadout for the 103 ... took awhile searching through my 2002 original project stuff. The current state of the 103 is a one pallet loadout, top view. I have seen Air Greenland use the one and two pallet configurations.

    Yay!

    Been flying the old Tyrolean livery around the South Pacific in FSX. Liked it so much I did not care about some of the issues.
    Really looking forward to the new and improved version!!!

    Thank you CP, et al.

    The new version is mainly an exterior makeover with improved fuselage, windscreen, smoother sides, improved nacelles and functionality, wing root, gear, and flight model. The panel and gauges are the same as the previous release. The mapping is slightly different due to the need to accommodate all the exterior changes so none of the old liveries will work.

    So, with the improvement, we can not use the 100 or so repaints that are out there, but, I had no choice. With that in mind, you may choose to keep the last release around.

    Finally, Dash 7 Revisited

    Working hard at getting the Dash 7 -101 cargo hauler ready for prime time now that the Grumman projects are getting pushed aside.

    Mike Kelly volunteered to do some serious textures here so I am totally restructuring the model for detailed mapping.

    I have the fuselage mapped, and now preparing the wings and all the parts.

    Bernt Stolle wanted to do the flight model, expecially those PT-6A engines performance, so I have passed the FM over to him.

    Bernt was a critically important team member of our original Dash 7 project back in 2002, 10 years ago.

    I should finish up the mapping this week and off to Mike's paint shop she goes.
