Someone else is handling the 2004 ones.
We have already released FS2004 F-16's, they are in the file library

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

FINALLY - Found a pic from the rear showing the rad alt width...

Also not a bad view of the cross section around the tail / fuselage join etc, also the smoother engine cowlings.

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

Looks better. The tail is a tapered cylinder with a circular cross section. Stil think the stbd and port engine covers are not quite right looking at the pic above. I dont remember the transition from the curved to straight being that pronounced. Only otherthings I have noticed... The 'box' on the b...

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

Yeah the "support" has to be offset because the tail rotor drive shaft runs along the centrline. Striclty its not a support it is a cooling duct. You also have the intermediate gearbox in that area. Can you import FSDS stuff? I started a Gazelle years ago, maybe you could use MCX to at least look at...

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

The engine covers are tricky because they are both different (on military versions anyway). Its because of the way the exhaust is 'supported', the support has an angle and is not centred. So on the port side the cover 'cuts' around it, on the stb side it covers it, you can see the stbd side in the p...

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

Woohoo, think I found a pic that shows it perfectly.... http://data6.primeportal.net/hangar/jean_thomas_rembert/sa342k_gazelle/images/sa342k_gazelle_30_of_30.jpg Also from another look, the location seems off. The grill is level with the bottom part of step, on yours its way higher, it also looks a ...

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

Hi John, The bore is circular, you are correct. The cover was made of spring steel and was almost perfectly pre-bent to the correct curvature, both vertically and horizontally. The angle would be to the left and down. The area it is at is a compound curve. I think on yours that area looks too flat f...

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

This helps I hope.
Its taken pretty much straight on.
Shows the lower curve of the fuselage in that area.
As a bonus its also shows the IRCM.

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

The curve of the manhole itself changes from the front to the rear.
Toward the rear the fuselage is markedly rounder on the lower areas than at the front.
Will also look for pics for you.

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

Thanks Kev, glad to have someone on board who knows about Gazelles, at least for the Army. I can make an alternative model with the Nitesun and transparent observation bubble. Is that bubble transparent on all sides, including the top? Could you elaborate on the "manhole cover" area - what do I nee...

Re: Aerospatiale Gazelle

This is one I can help out with the details, for the Army anyway. The pole typically carried a Nitesun on the port side, at least in Northern Ireland. Either as is, or with a IR filter. Also the N.I. ones had an IRCM exhaust that directed the airflow up through the rotors. https://s3.eu-west-2.amazo...
