At this moment that's an affirm for the E-3/6/8 (both from Elvis and NAAI) but a negative for the K/O/RC-135, although we're looking for a solution for the latter.

Don't ask us about release dates. ;)

Excellent news for the elvis and NAAI versions...great shame with the mgai 135's...thought permission had been given to update them from something John said.
Hope the solution is as nice as for some reason...that mgai one just seemed perfect..

as for release dates...….hahahaha

Permission has been given, we just need to find somebody with the time, skills and inclination to do them.

The NAAI ones are done (not by me) They are probably working their way thru the release process now.

I am working on the Elvis 707 family as time permits.

release date - sometime

Hi guys,

I asked a long time ago permission to upload the MGAI KC-135's, but got a no since I did not convert every small detail (as a developer myself I can understand this). I have the MGAI flying fine, without the fire extinguisher and without engine covers & wheel chocks. I also did the PAI KC-135.

I used only one model for the MGAI KC-135 and because of that have approx. 150 liveries flying). McX is still hard to figure.

"Release Date ... sometime". That one I buy :-)

Personally, I think I've converted the MGAI KC-135's 4 or 5 times, as I've gotten my head around another aspect of the conversion process - and whenever I've remembered another piece of ground equipment that needed a visibility trigger :lol: :lol:

Sometime is getting closer. The Elvis AI models are converted and the package is in the process of being finalized. It is in a long queue tho as there are only a few people working on the conversion process and a lot of models, textures, traffic files etc to be converted.

Volunteers always welcome

Feel free to convert and release the whole line of my -135 series. I just don't see myself ever getting back to those. I'm not really in the FSX or P3D scene so have at it. I won't have any objections.

No restrictions on the conversions, do with them as you please. It would be nice if you retained most of the original features I included but I will leave that up to your discretion.

Good luck and let me know if you need any of the original source files.

Indeed. A quick look at our progress board shows 9 models in QC, 15 more ready for packaging and 5 being converted with more being added all the time. :smt107

Thank you so much for letting us convert your -135 models.

We will do our best to keep them as close to the originals as possible.

Mike, thanks for your kind support! It should not take Martin and myself too long to finalize the conversion.

See this here.....the collaboration, assistance, permission, manners, call it what you may, is one of the main reasons this group of developers..painters...followers...etc is the best.
This is a hobby where no one gets paid, yet everyone is respectful...sometimes language barriers and misinterpretations can seem a bit 'off' at times...but this here post is what this group is all about.


For all you do....there really arent enough words of thanks.


Have a fantastic New Year everyone.
