    AH FS9 Bristol Bulldog

    Is there any hope that Aeroplane Heaven Bulldog for FS2004 will ever be available, somewhere again? I've did a google search and could find only the latest versions. I'd sure like to try Huub's new super looking skins.

    Stoney,

    As I have the model and as it is not longer on sale, I have asked Bazzar's permission to share it with those who what it. When I receive his permission, I will make it available here. If not I will post a message here.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Others who want the the model can write me a PM, which I will answer as soon as possible. (Please keep in mind that I sometimes sleep and also have a full time job in the real world.....)

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Stoney,

    You're welcome, but its not really me you need to thank. Bazzar who gave his permission to share the model is the one to be thankful to.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Now I'm confused...

    I found that I had the original AH Bulldog in my library.

    It installs 2 aircraft: Bristol Bulldog IIa & Bristol Bulldog IVa, with an effects folder.

    Huub's installs 3 aircraft, AH_Bristol_Bulldog, AH_Bristol_BulldogMKIV & AH_Bristol_BulldogMKIVSki & there's a separate Guages zipped folder, & no effects folder.

    Any ideas?

    Regards,
    Robin

    Robin,

    Can you check on which date the mdl files from your version were saved? I think the one I made available dates back to 2003, based on this date it might originally have been an FS2002 model which was upgraded to FS2004 by new gauges. According to the download date, I must have purchased it early 2005.
    As the Bulldog has been available for many years, it might have received another update somewhere in time.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    I believe this is the original FS2002 version upgraded for FS2004.
    Been using it since I purchased it from AH way back in my FS formative years. It works fine in FSX for me as well.

    Huub, thank you for these glorious repaints, also for sending me the Bulldog, it's a real treat! FS9 gives and gives, in large parts to the great community! And Shessi keeps cooking up new WW2 stuff to look forward to, too...

    Hello everyone. Just for clarification, the Bulldog (original payware) pack always had the MkIV and ski version. If I remember correctly, we did issue the Bulldog as freeware at some time and that pack just contained the wheeled version. It's a while ago so forgive any incorrectness. Unfortunately we lost the original files and the sim pakages etc. when our main drives went AWOL after the floods of 2011. For those who don't have the new Bulldog for P3D and run that sim as well, you will find the new one a totally different beast!

    Mmm, so Huub's Bulldog has BulldogFS.mdl date of 19 Dec 2003, my AH Bulldog's Bulldog model date is 20 Dec 2003.
    Huub's has a separate ski version, mine is integrated within the Bulldog IVa version as a variation, not a separate plane.
    It also has a manual dated 4 April 2004

    Another difference is that you have the gauges included and an effect folder. The manual is familiar, when I memory is still correct, I thought that was a separate (free) download. As a sort of appetizer.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Did a little experimenting with the gauges, not being too happy with some of them. Replaced the ASI, RPM and altimeter with those from Nigel"s Avro Tutor. Much, much better, thank you Nigel.

    Guy,

    As I found my bottle of Brasso, I have done some additional polishing. The repaint is ready and available in the library.

    Enjoy,
    Huub

    I didn't think Brasso was good for anything but brass. Works wonders on chrome car bumpers...

    Yet another gorgeous paint, Thanks Huub!

    Huub, you are doing a fabulous job of dressing up this old bird in fine new feathers!

    Thanks for the nice words guys. As you can call the texture lay-out at least "surprising", it took me quite some time to create my paintkit. But once its done, it doesn't take much effort to create new liveries. I still have one or two still planned.

    Cheers,
    Huub
