Thank you, Ed and Storm.

Great job. As I mentioned to the cockpit repainter of our B-17, I'm surprised more people dont offer up cockpit repaints like external repaints given they are implmented exactly the same way within FSX and offer so much variation from one model.
Nice job, had a quick test before bed last night, great improvement on the original. Thanks.

Wow. Thanks so much for this!
If that's a case of "as-is.." Looks awesome!
Ed thank you for the VC make over Once I started flying, I did not like the exterior shine, actually the plane looks metalic and that is wrong because they were a glossy light grey. I tweaked the MDL specularity with the MDLMat FSX tool. It all depends on personal taste I guess but if anyone likes what I done I will post the "how to". 1st pic is as it comes out of the box, 2nd is my tweaked MDL version:
Folks, after looking at my FDE adjustments and the effect it made on both the takeoff and landing speeds, I went back and studied a couple more FSX Delta Wing models and decided to add a Flight Tuning section to the F-106's Cfg file which doesn't feature one. All the numbers are nominal except the cruise lift scalar which I adjusted in an attempt or better yet a tradeoff for a good liftoff speed and not quite so nasty landing speed/sink rate. After much testing and comparing, I sat the cruise lift at 1.500(the standard setting would be 1.000). So far as I can tell, the change didn't have a negative effect in the handling or pitch trim but the liftoff and touchdown speeds and profile seem more on target. Just copy and paste the below text into the Cfg file just below the Reference Speeds entry.
cruise_lift_scalar= 1.500 //- increase to reduce aoa vs speed/G load
BTW, I did the MDLMAT changes and they look great! Been many a year since I used to see the F-106's out of the detachment that was based here at ILM. I remember how loud they were! I miss the sonic booms when they returned from an intercept mission!
You're both wrong...
The aircraft I painted for the payware package is absolutely 100% correct for the Montana ANG in 1971. Probably before your time Mike since you said "still flying".
When Phil changed his mind at the 11th hour and decided to do the single seater as the original type with the brace on the top of the canopy I had to backdate all of my schemes and throw some out (some schemes were revised to the B model and put out as freeware). So a bird from a decade earlier was selected because I've always been a fan of the Montana ANG scheme and wanted to keep it in the mix.
I did however paint a freeware version of a 1984 era two-seater in Montana ANG scheme with the more current ANG shield (and again with correct numbers).
I do my research guys. I never paint fiction when its going in a payware package.
Thanks for the FDE update Storm.
