Thanks Menno. Could I ask Tim to make contact please if he would like to pursue the airfield. If not, I'll gladly accept the files.

I think I might split this project into small chucks and release in a number of packages as and when they are ready.

A not unreasonable thought, John.

This way you can keep it as a side project to do little bits here and there when you need distracting.

OK, I'm on it John. The airfield was actually quite different in the early '50s, with a runway length of 6000ft and the new pan on the southwest side divided in two between the 96 and 256 Sqn lines. There isn't a lot of info available about it that I've found so far, but I'll do my best to make something in keeping. I'll do it initially for FSX, which should be easily convertible for FS9 and P3D.

Hello John,

Do you think it's possible to also have a F.4 version (tail section of NF.11 and front fuselage of F.8) ?

Thanks a lot.

Why do you want this model Laurent and what year are we talking about? It's a lot of work if you take into consideration paints and scenery. I think I'd rather add in the later target tugs.

The F.4 was built at more than 750 exemples.

With all your other models (F.8, NF-11 and T.7) the only one missing for my Belgian skies is the F.4.

I've all sceneries (For FS9) for Belgian scenery of this period.
I''ve buy a photoshop licence and i'm actually learning to paint aircraft.

I'll see how it goes after I've completed what I do have planned. Hats off to you for learning Photoshop. That will help.
