Hi Good Simmers,
Still tinkering furiously for the Ford Tri-Motor Project - currently working on the last of the Vega repaints - 5 more released the other day and 3 still in the pipeline - Plus 6 more Flamingo liveries to be created.
But the exciting thing is some new FORD Scenery for Switzerland. - something really very different.
I am always experimenting with ideas on how to make an airfield interesting for the simmers out there, and the other night, very late/early morning actually, I got an idea - something totally out of left field. How about a "Bunkered" airfield - not some skimpy little bunkers for the aircraft but an airfield within a big mountain.
Very easily thought of but putting it all together was a very interesting perturbation and a real exercise for my novice sim 3D model making experience. But after some very arduous "tinkering" it is now all coming together well.
Some pictures for you - click to enlarge.
The landing tunnel to Runway 18 is about a thousand feet long and a real challenge to hold the aircraft steady all the way through it to achieve a successful landing.
Still some fine tuning and testing of this "unique" airfield but hopefully she will be ready for you to test your flying skills by the weekend.
Yes you can get a Ford Tri-Motor down the tunnel
Regards and happy simming
Garry J. Smith and Edward C. Moore - your hard working Ford Tri-Motor Team.
