At the moment the fuselage is the default colour scheme that comes with the paintkit-from looking so far it seems that the RAN examples have the same colours as the USN ones. I'll try to confirm that before these are released.

Who is click? I looked around to see if there were any other packages covering the RAN seahawks but didn't see one.

Ah, him, thanks.

Did he do any RAN seahawks then? I've only managed to find examples from other countries.

He did but he only did the number that had been delivered at the time, 11, not the full number.

Ah right, haven't seen that anywhere. My plan is to do all of them. People can always chop and change as they prefer.

Package for P3D, FSX and FS9 uploaded to the download area.

For those with extra art I ended up only putting images on the sides I know they appear(ed). Some have pics on one side, others both. Most look ok-ish...

What is it with helicopters? Finish one batch and another conveniently presents itself.

Teaching myself how to deal with lights within MCX-not looking too bad.

The FS9 version of the C-97 has a nifty way of activating the landing lights by swiveling them as they are switched on (as it turns out because the lights drop from the wing). Happily, it is possible to retain that in FSX/P3D though I'll have to move it around a bit.

For those who don't know this is the C-97 from the CalClassic MATS package. It is a very old model (FS2002 basic user aircraft with modifications I think), but is on the conversion list and actually looks pretty good from the right angles. Certainly, sprucing up the lights helped a lot.

Textures: Already converted when Martin sent me the files, though the props needed an alpha.
Props: Sorted
Wheels: Sorted (well, they spin).
Lights: Sorted
Flaps: Working, but having the flaps deploying a notch or two for takeoff would probably improve it further.
Smoke: Set up, currently with the nicksmoke_707 effect. Still some fettling to do.
Airstairs: Civilian Boeing 377 stairs still present behind the port wing. Functional (as it in vanishes when necessary), but I am considering removing them as it does not appear that the C-97s had access there.

Its certainly a niche model in terms of who would install it but it is a good learning exercise.

I remember seeing both of these at a USAnian airbase museum many years ago (40 or so). Offutt, maybe?

Cool progress, love it!

But I don‘t see any mail, neither inbox, spam nor pm here.


From mobile hence short
Cheers,
Martin

Hmm, very odd, its in my sent items on gmail.

Anyhow, no issue, I'll copy it in a pm instead. I've just found an issue with the C-124 smoke and have added non-airstair models as an option for the C-97 now anyway anyway so will update things and send over v2.
