    SOH Team Project - Grumman Tracker, Trader, Tracer

    We have discussed this for a while and having completed much of the data collection with your help, I will attempt to get the FS9 project started.

    More earlier discussion here: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforum...-Trader-anyone

    In the earlier thread, many have helped with data collection and manuals. Some have volunteered for specific functions. Thanks to everyone for all the efforts to-date.

    I will focus on the exterior models for now. Gmax source will be available at completion.
    ROBCAP may do the interior model but still open to question.
    Euroastar350 has volunteered for the native FSX conversion.
    Nigel has volunteered sounds.
    PRB has volunteered for panel work. Check Coles Specials and Big W Catalogue.
    Smoothie has volunteered for textures.
    Flight model is open: Fliger? Would like an experienced FM designer here.

    What fine news in the quiet of summer! Another star to come out of the M Shupe & Team "Ironworks."
    Well I've been to one World Fair a picnic and a rodeo and that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard come over a set of earphones.

    Outstanding, will be keeping an eye on this one as it develops.

    Great news..., Great plane...
    Can't wait to follow this development from scratch with all the WIP shot's, FDE fiddles, cockpit layouts and so on!
    If it turns out to be anywhere as good as the latest SOH projects,(no doubt), then we are in for a treat!

    OMG!!! With all the stuff I'm waiting for, I'm not sure I can drum up enough saliva to continue drooling. Y'all are making me dehydrated.

    Awesome project! Really looking forward to it!

    I sure am happy someone is making a good Trader model. I really look forward to comparing this project with the reworked FM I did for another members trader (converted tracker) recently.

    Well, thanks for your interest everyone.

    Just starting with the fuselage for the E-1B. Getting the basic fuselage shape will likely take me a week or so, so there will be some time before I get back to you.

    Milton:

    Count me in, your projects are always the most fun!

    Amazingly a guy here in Fairbanks has an S2, used to be at the international here but last I saw it it was sitting with it's wings folded at his private strip on a ridge out of town.

    Cheers: Tom

    Grumman Trader/Tracker sounds

    :salute: It is a great honour being part of a Milton Shupe project from its outset. I will endeavour to compliment this aircraft with the sound quality so justly deserved by any of MS's subjects.

    It would be of great assistance if anyone here has video/audio material or access to a working aircraft. You would indeed be making a most valuable contribution to the project, so I'm all ears as they say.

    Milton, do you envisage the turboprop version also?

    Thank you Nigel. I will keep my eyes and ears open and send whatever I find.

    I see no reason why a turboprop version can't be done. The engine nacelles, panel and gauges, sounds, and flight model are the big differences, and quite significant.

    Personally, I can only commit to the initial efforts, the E-1B and the C-1A. I will try to do the S2F changes as well but may have to pass on the gmax source for that and the T-Prop versions.

    Thanks Matt; you will have plenty time for data collection. I appreciate your help and I am certain that others will look forward to your paint kit guidance.

    Without fans and "customers", there would be less need to do this project. We appreciate and need your interest and support.

    Having rode in one years ago, I'm looking forward to the C-1 Trader and have a repaint of my own in mind for the one I rode in.

    Found a pic of it. USS Lexington's COD C-1 from 1976.

    Great to see the birth of another good one.
    Nothing more than a "customer" but I'd be happy to help find bugs.

    This would certainly be an interesting addition to the FS fleet of aircraft. I remember seeing these in USN service back in the 70's and 80's. Now the remaining ones are in fire fighting service and some are on the warbird circuit.

    I'm afraid all I can offer is my enthusiasm and excitement for such a great project and aircraft.
    I love the sound of the Stoof.Looking forward to making some noise!
