NAS JRB Fort Worth (KNFW)

Post by clickclickdoh » 17 Jul 2019, 04:10

Hello everyone, another project has reached the point where I can admit it exists because the chance of it finishing is much higher than the chance of it being flushed.

This is an evolution of the two prior releases of Carswell AFB

All the AFCAD updating is done and all the key buildings are in place, leaving equipment, cars/trucks, trees and other detail work to be done.

Already painted and flight planned:

181st Airlift Squadron with new JYAI C-130H models
VMGR-234 with new JYAI KC-130J models




Still needing to be painted:

A\6-52nd AVN for HTAI King Air 200





Do I paint them or is everyone happy with the existing paints?:

VMFA-112 F/A-18A+: Currently in the MAIW Reserve Hornets package (likely to get updated due to MAIW package having 13 jets and there currently being 18 jets assigned)


VR-59 C-40A: Currently in one of the MAIW Navy Airliner packages with the same three aircraft still assigned.


457th FS F-16C/D: Currently in one of the MAIW... Um... something packages.

Wow, this looks great. I know that someone has made flightplans for VR-59 using the FAIB Clippers. The F-16s are probably in one of the Guard packages. Also, did the USMC C-9 squadron been moved to Fort Worth?

For F-16C/D from 457th, perhaps make a repaint of the new model from WSMG.

Awesome stuff. Quite often we see it from the air as we descend into KDFW.

I was thinking that a nice touch would be some naked F-16s and F-35s for the LM side of the field.
Of course this supposes that there are good enough pics of them naked for a painter to do them.

Great job there Brent.

I did start an ambitious project of my own.

Alas my ambition exceeded my capabilities at the time.
There might be some buildings that could be finished off for an upgrade at some time.

VMR-1, the Marines C-9 squadron, is also based at Fort Worth after they moved from Cherry Point. I know that they're transitioning to the C-40, so I don't know how long the C-9 is going to be around. There is a C-9 texture out there, but some digging might be required.

VMR-1 is indeed currently at NAS JRB Fort Worth, but they no longer have the C-9s. They are currently without aircraft as they are waiting delivery of C-40s.

I do indeed plan on painting up some primer layered F-35s for the Lockheed side of the base. F-16 production ended in Fort Worth last year though.

Great project and nice to see the Hercs filling up my P3D. The -112 jets should be upgrading to C models soon, I repainted a few of the B models that they had on the line, but those are supposed to go away according to Combat Aircraft Mag. This after scouring through the BuNos with scramble.nl and Martin's program, so many jets from the original packs are transferred out.

Do like the idea of a few LM factory F35s around, correct the Vipers are finished in Greenville now.

For the Army side, there was a plan to move all 6-52 AVN UC-35s to NFW. The resident C-12 unit also took on a ISR role with the 339th MI, but I am pretty sure they have gone back to straight OSACOM (VIP) missions. I have a buddy there I can ask.

It always amazes me what you can do with a few generic libraries, Brent. :smt107
