FSX/P3D – Hawker Tempest MKVI Updated. This is a cockpit interior and panel update for the Hawker Tempest MKVI recently posted by A.F. Scrub. The package features four liveries, among them the beautiful display bird Blue Thunder. The focus of this update lies on the enhancement of the cockpit interior, an entirely revised photorel virtual cockpit and 2D panel with animated yoke. Almost all the original gauges have been replaced with new ones, now giving the panels a much more authentic appearance and making them almost look like the real panel. Smoke effect added. Thanks to David Hanvey and Paul Barry for the original FS2004 model, to David Rickets, Jan Rosenberg,Dave Quincey and Matt Wynn for the repaints and to Morton from SOH for the great photoreal 2D panel, which is the base for the VC. Also thanks to A.F. Scrub for his latest native FSX update, which has made it possible to implement this VC, Also thanks to Andre Ludick for his prop texture and some tweaks to the aircraft.cfg. Flap fix by A.F. Scrub included.

FS2004 – Cessna C-37 Airmaster. The Cessna Airmaster is the plane that rescued the Cessna Aircraft Company from oblivion in the 1930’s. Clyde Cessna was a self-taught and well known early barnstormer, racer, and designer of aircraft, and he had gone into business during the 20’s building aircraft professionally. Some early examples of his work include the Cessna AW. Clyde Cessna was also involved in the Travel Air company, which is where a number of early aviation pioneers got their start (including Walter Beech and Lloyd Stearman). A special thanks to: Milton Shupe for permission to use his engine start effect and allow me to modify it for the Airmaster,

Apart from the Centaurus engine , the Tempest II prototypes were similar to early series Tempest Vs.Tempest IIs produced during the war were intended for combat against Japan, and would have formed part of a proposed British Commonwealth long-range bomber force based on Okinawa, Tiger Force.
