View Full Version : Tanker 910 repaint
06 Jan 2008, 01:02
I am sure most of you are familiar with the DC-10 air tanker that has been used the last couple of years to fight wildfires in California. When I first saw it I knew I wanted one for my fleet. Well thanks to the gift of FS Repaint V2 from my better half I now have one. It lacks the belly tank of its inspiration but I hope to add it later. The repaint is based on the BGA DC-10 model from the Swiss Air 3 pack by Jonathan Stewart, Remo Eugster and Robby Pauletto of HOUSE-RP.
Once I got it to this point I had to fly it :D. I can't wait to build a few fire fighting missions!

Witnessed many examples of it's use during the numerous fires we had down here a couple of months ago. Some darn fine flying is all I can say! Great to see it represented in FSX.
Indeed Lance, those guys have nerves of steels and balls of brass!
Did you see the damage to the left wing from clipping several trees in June 2007? Talk about a close call!

I think I'm done tweaking it for now. I changed to a redder hue on the "fire orange" paint and added some small details. I want to build some missions for her and finish my CGASSD scenery project, then maybe I'll try my hand at modeling a belly tank for her.
I've uploaded the texture and instructions in a .rar file to a Box.net account at the following link:
You need to have the FSX Swissair Douglas DC-10-30/ER model. If you don't already have it you can get it here from flyawaysimulation.com:
Its available other places as well... been around forever.
