The work on the F.2b is getting to the point where I'm starting to think about what I want to do for my next project.

I enjoy doing 1/4 scale planes, and planes from the Great War certainly interest me because they have a lot of character. I definitely like stuff with plenty of small details.

One possibility is the Spad VII. Boof's son started one but never finished it.

However, I'm certainly willing to step outside of the Great War.

I thought about doing a BF-110 but one already exists.

Any ideas? Be aware that if I decide to make it, I'm a slow builder and it will take a while to get it into your hands.

How about a B-29 from WW2? I know there is one already in Add-Ons 3, but that one has a lower quality colorscheme, 'backwards' flaps, and probably lower physics being from a version around G3.

It's not from a Add-on either. The one from the Add-Ons is a B-17 Go do your homework before you post.

That being said there is a better B-17 on the swaps

Even though it is from G3, an AV will bring the physics up to date.

He's looking for EA ideas. The B-29 "idea" requires nothing more than an AV and a CS to update it. That won't cure the flap mapping issue, but who cares?

The Crack Yak shininess is due to the CS, nothing more. A modified CS fixes that.

Something we don't have in the sim yet that is a little different is the Waco CG-4A combat Glider. Now that we have the Aerotow feature in multiplayer, this could be alot of fun.

Finishing the Spad VII would be great and there has been lots of information posted on the original site to work with. If your feeling FROGGY and up to the change, a really WELL DONE, in 1/4 scale, SBD, with the dive brakes and all the detail, no flush rivets on this one, just a thought, or maybe a" NICE" Martin Mauader B-26, with bomb drops and working machine guns. KMOT could come up with the twin P&W engine sound profiles.
There also has not been done a REALLY great "EARLY P-51", I'm talking about the Allison A's, or the Merlin B's and C's. There has been information posted in the past for the Allison version and the B's and C's would be no problem to gather what you would need and I'm sure that there would be more than myself who would do the research for you.

Have you modeled a jet?
Would be QUITE a change from your last 2 models!

Vigilante

Two unique characteristics:

"There were no ailerons. Roll control was provided by spoilers in conjunction with differential deflection of the all-moving tail surfaces"

"Given its original design as a carrier-based, supersonic, nuclear heavy attack aircraft, the Vigilante's main armament was carried in a novel "linear bomb bay" between the engines in the rear fuselage, which provided for positive separation of the bomb from the aircraft at supersonic speeds. The single nuclear weapon, commonly the Mk 28 bomb, was attached to two disposable fuel tanks in the cylindrical bay in an assembly known as the "stores train". A set of extendable fins was attached to the aft end of the most rearward fuel tank. These fuel tanks were to be emptied during flight to the target and then jettisoned with the bomb by an explosive drogue gun. The stores train was propelled rearward at about 50 feet per second (30 knots) relative to the aircraft, not at the aircraft's forward speed as stated in some references. It therefore followed a typical ballistic arc rather than "falling straight down."

Think big, think details...

Actually the bigger the bird
the less fine detail you get
Think about it for a second
you're trying to get a 140 FT long aircraft to span a 4096 tga
even rivets @ 1 pixal would make them large looking ...............And at that they would only be squares ..not really rivet looking)
Smaller aircraft really lend them selves to finer detail in RF than larger ones


I'd like to see some of the Russian birds done
like a Mig 3
Or a LA-7

jeffpn
11-30-2012, 08:18 PM
I don't think you'd really put more rivets in a bigger RF airplane. You'd just make bigger rivets. Otherwise, you're right on!

Maj. Numbskully
11-30-2012, 08:25 PM
Actally if you want them at a scale size and spacing................... there would be lots more rivets jeff

jeffpn
11-30-2012, 08:35 PM

I get that.

Theoretically, a plane in RF (or even a real model) would have the same number of rivets, whether it was a 3' wingspan, or a 12' wingspan. They'd be smaller rivets in the 3' wingspan. My point is, I think that's a corner you cut in RF. Make the rivets as small as you can work with to get your minimum resolution level.

Maj. Numbskully
11-30-2012, 08:40 PM
Which is about a rivet size of 3 or 4 pixels on a 4096 ...which would be battleship size on a B-29

jeffpn
11-30-2012, 08:48 PM
That 4,096 defines any model you'll ever see. Doesn't matter if it's a 3' wingspan, or a 12' wingspan, or even a 100' wingspan. It all has to fit on the 4,096. And scale is scale. A B-29 needs to have 1,324,745 rivets (I made that up ;)) to be scale. Doesn't matter what scale it is. The rivets would be smaller on a smaller model. The .tga files would look identical.

Maj. Numbskully
11-30-2012, 09:07 PM

As far as "Detail" goes .....................its not the same jeff

jeffpn
11-30-2012, 09:09 PM
Here's another way for me to put it: When you're done with the SK3, I'm going to scale it up to full size. It will be huge in RF. The .tga will look exactly the same!

Maj. Numbskully
11-30-2012, 09:18 PM
And that has nothing to do with what I'm talking about ! ...

I don't think you get what I mean............
right now I'm at a loss for words.....Its been a long day........

can explain it in a way you'd understand ............boof ?, mad rat?, abaser?, phrank?....

There is your LA-7. I remember watching a scratch build log over at RCSB of a LA-5. The differences were subtle but by far the most impressive build I've ever seen. At was a 1/3 or 1/2 scale monster. Foam core wings and something like 50 pounds. Dragon Slayer over there was the builder.

dhk79
11-30-2012, 10:32 PM
Funny, Maj. I was thinking about asking someone to explain it to you!!Actually, I'm going to have to side with the Maj on this one. If you have a big model, each pixel in the CS covers more area on the 3D model and a rivet would look like a wad of chewing gum (I was thinking of something more colorful, but figured I'd keep it PG).

jeffpn
11-30-2012, 10:42 PM
That would be correct. But a scale model of any size should have the same number of rivets. Larger models would have larger rivets. Smaller models would have smaller rivets. The .tga files of each size model would look exactly the same.

dhk79
11-30-2012, 10:50 PM
The problem is the difference in scale between the 3D model and the size limitation of the TGA. If you start with a reasonably sized model and its CS and scale it up, you don't have the problem as both parts scale together. If you try to do a CS for a BIG model, however, you are not going to be able to do rivets even at one pixel. I know from from trying with the C-5, a single pixel looked to be about 6" across.

11-30-2012, 10:54 PM
Now you're getting it! :D

Maj. Numbskully
11-30-2012, 10:56 PM
no not really
At full size
the rivets on a P-51 are about the same size as on a B-29 ...about 1/4 "
when trying to keep the rivet size and spacing at some thing close to "scale"
there is a BIG difference in the detail level of each Rivet ....
not to mention panel lines ....
a 1 pixel gap between panels on a p-51 will look realistic in RF
but when you try to put an access panel on the fuse of a b-29 with a 1 pixel lines
the end result is a gap that at "Scale"......looks 1" wide :eek:

True, the tga has its limits. What I was referring to (but not clearly enough) was some details found on a WW2 bomber MR has perhaps not done before: flaps, bomb bay & its interior, retracting LG, large instrument panels, etc. Certainly not all, but may have be some new things to him.

I'm strongly considering the Douglas A-1 Skyraider that was requested by Aero sometime ago (even though he hasn't logged in here for a long time). Unfortunately, the only good 3 view I have found is of the AD-5 (A-1E) variant which I'm not particularly interested in. Everything else is pretty low res.

Similarly, I have not found a really good resolution view of the Halifax.

I have found an excellent 3 view of the DC-3 but I'm less inclined to take that one on since a version has already been done (grant you, a poor version).

Or this AD-1 (color)

The second is better than anything I had dug up other than the AD5/A1-e variant I mentioned. Thanks!

I might sound a little bias here, but the DC-3 is loved by every aviation enthusiast that roams the planet. It deserves a better image/representation in the sim than the current model.
I`m still hoping for it :D

I keep vacillating on that one. I really do have an excellent 3-view for it, and as I mentioned, I had a friend who use to fly them in Alaska. I need to go back into RF6 and reacquaint myself with the current version.

Oye. That DC-3 is truly awful.

A skyraider would be a welcome addition to the simulator. One of my personal favorite aircraft.

I to agree with the skyraider, however the DC-3 does allow for future CS`ers :D, a nice palette to apply there artwork,
Much more CS`s to be had on the DC-3, than the skyraider,
I will have to admit though, that I would also like to see a skyraider (one of my faves)on the swaps:D:D;)

A DC-3/C-47 would make a great tow plane for a Waco glider too.

After a lot of thought, the DC-3 it is, at least until I change my mind. :p

Thanks to everyone for all the great suggestions.

I finished it 100%, (further than in that screenshot) however I was not happy with my CS skills and had offered the project out asking for help on a quality CS at the time. I was unable to ever get a person to reply / help, so the project was kept for my personal use (didn't want to just upload an EA with a CS I personally wasn't happy with)

That was a fun project and fun plane to fly in the sim.....lost with the pc crash however.

Ouch. That was really coming together nicely, and the Sturmovik is such an interesting plane besides.

I have an interest in seeing a Vulcan in my hanger. I have a set of files for fs9 for the avro vulcans if anyone can use them to make a large sized model. Say 14 ft or so.
Coincidentally enough Vulcan Xh558 has a model on their Flight sim. Bringing it to RF would open doors for more possible interest in the real thing!
