I don't know how many people picked up on this paragraph in the readme file for Ito-San's Fokker DXXIII...
By the way, recently....I made Messerschmitt Bf109G6.
My "Gustav" for myself by myself.
Model is Finnish Air force MT-423 in Finland front.
I don't open this to the public.
If....If you want use this "Gustav", Please give me a e-mail.
I will be send this to you.
I got it and I think it's right up there with the best work that he's ever done- exterior, VC, and FDE. He painted it in Finnish colors- here it is right out of the box:
His original package offered 3 model options- clean, centerline tank only, and tank/gun pods. at my request, he also made and sent me a gun-pods-only version.
I liked it so much I started repainting it- Ito offered it in a non-Luftwaffe skin, which gave me the idea to do some more non-Luftwaffe:
I also found some Luftwaffe liveries that I couldn't resist trying:
As usual, there's room to tweak- editing the VC resolution to 1024, and editing the aircraft.cfg to give it some zip- I plugged in engine data that I got from another 109G-6(his seemed, for lack of a better description, de-tuned) and adding a flight tuning section so I could increase its responsiveness a little. That's all I had to do for it to fly as nice as any other 109G out there- I compared flying the tweaked FDE to those from a 1% CFS2 Bf-109G-6, AvHistory CFS3 Bf-109G-6, and a FDE set made by Jerry Beckwith for the stock CFS3 Bf-109G-6, and there was little to choose. I added a Banana Bob prop(big surprise there), and am currently using a 109 sound pack by Aaron Swindle (of course, there are lots of nice 109 sounds to choose from).
I'll jump off of my soapbox now... I just had to make sure that this bird didn't get overlooked. I hope Ito-San knows just how much his work is appreciated by many of us! I think he should release it- and I told him so...
