The idea of this thread is that you can use it to announce that you are working on an aircraft. Just to let other developers know that this aircraft or livery is in development. That way hopefully we won't work on the same addons without knowing it.

If you want to show the work in progress of your aircraft, please create a separate thread in the showroom forum for it. Do not use this thread to post a lot of screenshots.

After finishing my work on Cessna Soloy T206H MK2 Sentinel (it needs some time), I will have a closer look to modify my very old FS9 Eurocopter EC-145/Airbus H145 project to native FSX and P3D4. First steps are done - model of H145 is FSX native and works in P3DV4. But all animations, avionics and a lot of other stuff have to rebuild new. It is the next long-term project of mine.


It looks like a nearly finished project - but nada, a lot of things have to be optimized.


The Helionix Step 1 avionics of new Airbus Helicopters are only bitmaps. Need to find a good friend helping me with programming these suite. It will be freeware.

Awesome News!!! Thomas, I am very happy for you and this project (I still enjoy flying the almighty EC149 for FS9). If I am allowed to judge, the end product will be spectacular! I am sure you won't be happy until you reach (or overcome) Sentinel's level of perfection. :wizard::wizard::wizard:

Kindest regards and the best of luck in your work,
Sergio.

Getting back to work on the Armstrong Whitworth Meteor PR19a.

My friend, who is a master plastic modeler, was building a RB-57F Canberra one day, when he discovered that the Engine parts were not quite right. Careful inspection revealed that the engines were 1/82 scale instead of 1/72 scale, and therefore could not be used to build the Canberra true to scale.

Starting with those outsized engines and parts from a number of plastic models that were currently in progress, the Meteor PR19a was born.

TF33s from RB-57F Canberra - Engine fan sections (1/82 scale)
Meteor NF14 - Fuselage, engines, inner wings, landing gear
U2 - Nose, outer wings, and tailplanes
RF-4C Phantom - Recce pods and cameras

I am recreating his plastic model in Gmax for FSX and FS9.
