Beech AT-11 KANSAN Released
Well, after 18 months of interrupted progress, we have finally uploaded this project.
The AT-11 was inspired for me by Scott Thomas, Willy, and the Hobbs Army Airforce B-17 Bomber training base here in my home town. I was also fortunate to hook up with Taigh Ramey of www.twinbeech.com
who was an enormous help in providing details, pictures, and feedback.
The package has four models, 5 skins, and awesome sounds. There are also five extra skins by Damian Radice waiting to be uploaded. The paint kit will be along as soon as Damian returns home.
I am working on the website now where the extra skins and paint kit will also be available. I will upload the skins and paint kit here at SOH for primary downloads.
Thanks to Scott Thomas our panel and gauge man for hanging in here until this project could be released. Scott has moved on to other interests.
Damian has been a constant inspiration throughout this project. I am not certain I would have gotten it done without his help. His textures just kept bringing life back to the effort.
Gary Jones' sounds for this aircraft just put the wow factor in it for me too. They are rich, have depth, they are prop'y, and believeable. Thank you so much Gary.
Thanks to Tom Falley for helping put the finishing touches on the flight model.
Tako_Kichi has an FSX scenery, a year long effort, for the HAAF base so if you fly that side, you might want to check it out. Over 400 objects, a very expansive and comprehensive scenery including multiple airfields, AI, and static aircraft and equipment.
I wish to thank all of the SOH members who expressed interest to keep the fires burning. I really appreciate your help and interest.
In the end, this is just a freeware aircraft, not a lot of bells and whistles (you know my stuff), but she looks decent, flies great, and should treat you well. If you have trouble with frame rates on this, I will try to package up a lighter version for you.
Let me know of any issues here and I will attempt to correct them if practical. I am on my own for support right now so bear with me.
I hope you enjoy the many hours invested in this.
