Ok well my original idea was to build a PB4Y-2 Privateer for FSX but this being my first time modelling and using gmax I will be making this for FS9 with possible update to FSX at a later date. This project is mainly to pay tribute to the airtanker crews all over past and present who put their lives on the line to save lives and property.
I have grown up around airtankers my whole life and recently began studying the 4Y in which Ive met alot of great people and even flown in (and got some stick time) the 4Y Tanker 121. Learning about this aircraft made me start searching for a flight sim model which there was only one. A military model from Wings of Power which was the military model complete with guns and everything which is not what I was looking for. So I decided to give modeling a go. Let me say that I am not a patient person sooo this was not easy. I have to admit I would have been lost in Gmax without the help of Milton Shupe! He has helped me along this whole project and I owe a big thank you to him!
This project has come along way since the begining and its getting alot closer to finishing. Id like to share some photos of the progress up to where we are today with this. I have started to lay down some textures so I hope you guys enjoy and I look forward to sharing this when the project is complete. Ill stop babbling now
