CH149 Cormorant?

Post by gavinc » 29 Mar 2017, 08:15

Hi John,
Cheeky request as I don't know how much work it would be but any chance that you could create the RCAF Cormorant from your Merlin model?

Thanks

You could probably get away with a set of repaints!

Not sure it would work as required on the model as it is, not to it being a different configuration but the mapping, John would have to do that to get the scheme on correctly!

Much thanks

When i started the Merlin I created a library of parts to produce different versions, just like Westland did! I'll have a look after the HC4s.

Thank you,
The biggest visual differences (at least to my untutored eye) are the rescue winch on the right side and the searchlight on the underside

Hi Lewis real life intervened but it's still on the books. Hopefully I can finish it soon.

Looking very much forward to this one, hope the Norwegian version will be modeled. I can send you a few pics of the first one if you want me to. I made a 330sqn repaint package for your Blackhawk meanwhile, to replace the the Sea Kings for P3D4. It can be found here: http://flightsimnorway.com/addons/?func ... k=repaints

Cheers,
Andrew

The plan is all versions of the Merlin will be produced including the Tokyo Police version!
