    Looks like a really interesting aircraft, especially the green house canopy!

    This one is a lot of fun. Unique and lots of animations. Three different models: bomber, tanker and recon.

    I think they did a great job of integrating the jet engine - sounds and noticeable change in thrust and pitch when engaged. I've had several flights starting with radials only, then igniting the jet engine in flight.

    Interesting plane! Great that Virtavia is doing a lesser known plane! It could however do with a new paintjob to get rid of the clean look! Flies like a swan.

    The VC needs to be scuffed up as well. Cockpit lighting works well, but that all black panel... against the black scenery... took me a while to adjust.

    Agreed. Needs some dirtying up. The paintkit is available here: http://www.virtavia.com/Freeware/ind...=/Paint%20Kits

    I've got to figure out a better launch assistance entry. The plane comes loose before the throttle is spooled up.

    Already downloaded! Now where are some decent profiles for this one?

    I noticed the launch issue just as we were releasing it, but it was too late to get the change incorporated.

    Try using these numbers to see if the cat holds. They need to be just in the right spot especially if the carrier is moving.

    [launch_assistance]
    launch_bar_pivot = 9.8, 0, -4.5
    launch_bar_lug = 12.6, 0, -7.6

    BTW,
    Here's a little secret. I enabled water injection. It will add a little boost to horse power and airspeed.
    All you have to do to get it to work is assign a couple of key strokes under Settings - Controls / Buttons - Keys / Engines / War Emergency Power. I have been using W+E. You can assign any keys of your choosing.

    That's it! Works great now!

    Thanks, Cees. Nice job. Works for me. Something a little scruffy and worn.

    Here's a texture that came with the package. I made it more dirty, added the yellow warning arrow and made the spinners less red. The paintkit is a joy to work with!

    Great looking paints. Keep up the good work. I was thinking about this model because it's so different, but it looks a little FS9'ish. Maybe wait for a sale sometime.

    Nice work Cees.....I have always believed that it is the repaints that really help sell a product in the long run.

    Nice work on the paints!

    Dvj; No other developer which makes these forgotten military aircraft for FS, so it might be a smart move to support them with buying it at normal price if we want to see more. I know it is a small economical margin on these aircraft as the money in the FS world are with the liners, GA and some of the more famous fighters.

    As Razbam has not done anything FSX wise with their Skyraiders, I would love to see Virtavia take on the AD/A-1 family. That one could be a smart financial move as well..

    Best regards

    Indeed. I have a bunch of their cold war models which were not cheap, but maybe I've gotten cheap?

    I've been trying to get the spinners repainted in red and white in four parts. But the spinners mapping is making this impossible: the upper halve is a copy of the lower half. Alas!

    Cees

    Assuming it is mirrored top and bottom, shouldn't something like the attached spinner texture give you a spinner with four quadrants? (I don't have this aircraft, or I would try it to be sure, but if you just drop this over the spinner area in AJ-2_01.psd, it might work, possibly with tweaking.) (Or it might not work at all - you have done these before and likely have had to work with lots of interesting design choices before, so you may have fiddled with something like this already.)
