HAHA, yeh sure, I keep looking at these models and the possible variations....and thinking why did I start on this. The A-4 is stupid with its different versions, I thought the F-15 was bad enough.

Anyway on the Tomcat front, sorry to say we have to lose a couple of animation functions following a few tests. Wings will now only be fully forward or fully aft, as they weren't working properly, with the animation that has them fully swept until clearance for tak-off so I felt the best option was to scrap that and have it fully aft or fully forward. It still looks good. Also the animated spoilers on the wing upper surface is going, as I cant get them spot on, so that they look good, keep getting bleed throughs and other wierd effects, and I got annoyed so they are going too. Still has the aft spoiler for landing. I may get around to re-doign the wing ones but not at the moment.

Is this bird going to carry a Phoenix loadout?

Also for fun can we have a RAF version. It was considered at one stage (as was the F-15) but we got the F-3 Tonka instead, nuff said!!

Nick you beauty. The classic F-14 fighter look. Reminds me of the Airfix kit I had! Can't wait to add it to the AlphaSim USS Enterprise.

You may want to use anti-alias when drawing those diagonal lines though :wink:

She's really looking great Nick. I recently DL your F-15 and can't wait for your F-14. Will you release it to the general FS public again? :D

Hello!

I wonder is that nice looking Iranian Air Force F-14 repaint available for download somewhere? Could it be used along the model which came in Tomcats Sunset Package?

Hello.

I know it's an old model. But I'm searching a WET FDE for the FS9 version of NBAI F-14 Tomcat.

Thanks for the help.

The wet version for FS9 was never released... For the P3d version I had to animate all the correct parts (hook, nose strut, launch bar, aircraft position, ect.) from scratch... As for the FDE itself you could try plugging in the aircraft.cfg parameters and .air file from the carrier P3d version and that should be able to give you "carrier performance" but you will not see any animations...
