• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Westwind 1124

Hello all.

I am looking for a 3d modeler, texture designer and possibly coder to start with me on a Westwind 1124 project. The plan is to do the Westwind I, Westwind II, and eventually the Astra SPX/G100.

For now though I just would like to get through the Westwind I.

I would be providing technical assistance as I am flying the Westwind in the real world. I have available to me a FlightSafety, Simcom and Simuflite pilot initial training manual, cockpit resource handbook, checklists, aircraft maintenance manual, illustrated parts catalog, and all the detailed photographs one could want, as well as video of moving part animations including gear swings, flaps, speed brakes, lift dump, thrust reverser etc etc.

My other contribution to the project would be the development of the flight dynamics. I am pretty good at this and dig into the .air file considerably to include things such as lift/drag coefficients, proper engine/thrust simulation etc.

If you are interested in joining this project please send me a PM or respond to this thread.

The goal is to complete this aircraft for all available FS platforms. At the moment I think this project would be best served as a payware product, and as such I will be working with IAI for licensing.

It would be nice to develop a freeware version with less fidelity, but we'll see.
I love the Westwind, aswell as every other Rockwell airplane (e.g. Twin Commander).

I am currently learning how to model, but unfortunately don't have the skills to model something like this. I wish you luck and you already have a customer if that counts for anything.:D
