Great to see the Tomcat back in action! However a quick question, I noticed that only one of the B models was done the dry med intercept model. The fleet intercept, max intercept, and clean models are not there. Are there any plans to include the rest of the B-Cats? Thanks

There was only one B model released plus 5x A models and 3x D models.

If I remember correctly the B model was the one off prototype and not the A+ that was later renamed to B

I see… That would be correct...What threw me and I guess it was from when I set up my FS9/X packages back in the day is that there are subfolders for all of those guessing how the packages came from whatever source I had; but going into the folders themselves they all contain the same "dry" model. Thanks

It could very well be that somebody wanted to simulate the A+ or B models and thought that it would be helpful to copy and rename other model folders.
There is nothing wrong with this but it can confuse people years later when the original reason is lost in the mists of time. As you say the only way to tell is to look at the name and size of the original mdl files to work it out. I admit I just went back and looked at the original Top Gun package before posting my reply.
