Hi guys,

Since the Sikorsky S76 and Bell 222 is nearing release, I figured I work on the Bell 429 (FSX native) to bring it up to date. This one will take a while as I have to configure each model for each specific livery, assign materials for each parts as per the FS2004 release, animate, code, etc. I am building a base model so I can base the other models from, that means building the VIP, EMS, police, SAR models all from one base model. Now that FSX version will have unique features that aren't found on the FS2004 version like pulsating landing lights, 2 different strobe light options and more. More to follow....

Work is continuing at full speed on the Bell 429 for FSX/P3D. Many changes including 3D lights and volumetric rotor effects. I'm slowly but surely building all the different variations as released by @antaris with corresponding liveries to match, 4K textures including diffuse, bump and specular textures are in the works plus a new paintkit. Slated for release this year, but when I'm comfortable to release it as I'm the only one building and coding all models.

Development for the first part of the Bell 429/429WLG GlobalRanger is coming to a close. The WLG version is complete with all gear and related controls in place, it's now in the paintshop getting schemes done. I'm adding some of the original textures to the package, plus a few new textures that were done recently. 4K paintkit is well underway with new bump maps, but it's being done by another developer. There is some code that is giving me issues and will have to correct them before going into beta. So far, this has been one of the best models I've worked on to date, although there was some hiccups along the way. A huge sincere thank you goes out to @antaris for his base model and to @Bluebell for allowing to convert his WLG version from X-Plane to FSX/P3D native. More to come.

The WLG looks absolutely incredible and I am sure this will be a blockbuster! Big cheers to you and Tom for all this hard work :wizard: :wizard: :wizard:

Keep it up!

The best part of FSX Acceleration/Gold/Steam is the ability to do hoisting and the Bell 429 will have this feature as part of the release package. Cargo hook in the works and will have the ability to pick up objects as well

4K textures/bump map work in progress. Everything on the original paintkit is getting blown up to 4K resolution, new panel lines, new rivets, new details and more. This is being done by Matt Wynn/Tiger Mouse Design
