Re: Current Projects

I did something that tf58 did not wanted to do. This aircraft is ar234c. I didn't include the C version is because in real life it only went as far as a few prototype airframes with no engines, and I only include actual operational variants in DiF. But hey, good for you on making this, and the othe...

Re: You miss a bird?

Another aircraft I miss was the Tu-16 Badger. The Indonesian Air Force had around 26 of this aircraft along with the Indonesian Navy in the 1960s. These aircraft was also used in Operation Trikora to take back West Papua from the Netherlands in 1961 and the Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation in 1963....

Re: Compass alignment of new runways!

And sometimes runway numbers are way off from actual heading for practical reasons. Here in Toronto, the Lester B. Pearson international airport (CYYZ) used to have two east-west runways - 6R/24L on the south side of the field, and 6L/24R on the north side of the field. About 12 years ago they added...

Re: Reverse's Workshop

First, name your parts logically. Very important tip right there. Ask yourself: "if I stop working on this and come back a year later, will I still be able to figure out what part is for what purpose?" If your answer is no, then you should rename your parts to something more obvious. Just because S...

Re: Reverse's Workshop

and in YS there is an open hole where the cockpit is when viewed from above The canopy should be a separate srf model from your fuselage. Make sure in the DNM you put the canopy (and any other transparent parts) at the bottom of the listing to help the YSF gfx engine render it properly.(*) In gener...

Re: Reverse's Workshop

Transparency value ranges from 0-255. At max value of 255 it becomes invisible. For canopies a good starting value is 200 if you are not certain what to use.

[PACK] Down In Flames

After many, many months of on-and-off (mostly off :oops:) working on upgrading this project, I finally got nearly every model (*) upgraded.

Re: Aircraft you spotted today

It always make me smile the rest of the day when I hear the distinctive high pitch buzz-saw like sound of twin 5-blade propellers, followed by the sight of a Piaggio Avanti coming in to land at the airport (CYKZ) next to my office. And it just happened again 5 minutes ago. Also that was preceded by ...
