FSX – Curtiss P-40Q Updated. The Curtiss P-40Q was an experimental project which attempted to produce a really modern fighter out of the existing P-40. The modifications were in fact so drastic that there was very little in common with earlier P-40 versions. The most prominent XP-40Q feature was the cutting down of the rear fuselage and the addition of a bubble canopy as on the “XP-40N”. The result was an aircraft which bore almost no resemblance whatsoever to its parent P-40 line. The V-1710-121 engine was fitted with water injection, resulting in a power of 1425 hp. Speed increased to 422 mph at 20,500 feet, making it the fastest of all the P-40s. This is Tim Conrad’s model with revised and enhanced panels compliant for FSX/ P3D.3. Smoke added.

FSX – Breguet 19 Updated. The Breguet 19 (Breguet XIX, Br.19 or Bre.19) was a light bomber and reconnaissance aircraft, also used for long-distance flights, designed by the French Breguet company and produced from 1924. This is an update of the Breguet 19, designed and posted by A.F. Scrub some time ago. The package features an enhanced VC and a new 2D panel, both with new gauges. New contact points prevents the plane from going havoc on the runway when started. Smoke, vc and nav lights as well as new camera views added. Credits go to A.F. Scrub for the original model and to Yannis Katehis Tsetsas for the gauge compilation.

FSX – North American P-51 H Updated. This is a VC and FDE update for the North American P-51 H, recently posted by A.F. crub. It adds more gauges and some eye-candy to the VC and fixes the inaccurate gauge positioning of most gauges. In additon, I’ve altered some parameters and added a “flight tuning” entry in the aircraft.cfg (e.g. the aircraft extremely pulled left during take off), reconfigured the smoke effect and added VC light for night flights. Easy installation. New updates by Michael Pook. Required file: “mustang_p51h_v2.zip“.

FSX – Douglas DC-8 Liveries Pack. This an update of my previous upload of the Douglas DC-8, which now includes 8 liveries (Lufthansa, KLM, Thai, Pan Am, Swissair, Iberia, JAL and an enhanced texture of the default Alitalia). The package now also includes the missing effect controller for smoke and burners. As it is the same aircraft otherwise, remove the original package and replace it with this one. All credits go to Capt. D’ Attono for the original model and special thanks go to Andre Ludick for his great repaints for this legendary jetliner. Panel and effect updates

FSX – Douglas SBD Dauntless Updated. The Douglas SBD Dauntless was a World War II American naval scout plane and dive bomber that was manufactured by Douglas Aircraft from 1940 through 1944. The SBD (“Scout Bomber Douglas”) was the United States Navy’s main carrier-borne scout plane and dive bomber from mid-1940 through mid-1944. The SBD is best remembered as the bomber that delivered the fatal blows to the Japanese carriers at the Battle of Midway in June 1942. This is an FSX update for the Dauntless SBD-3, originally designed for FS2004 by the late Paul Clawson. It combines the original model and an earliar panel update by Erwin Welker. This package features a modified VC with e few more gauges added and an enhanced and more realistic appearance. Both the VC and 2D panel are based upon Pierre Langer’s photo-realistic panel designs. Credits go to Paul Clawson for the original model, to Pierre Langer for the original panel design and the Dauntless gauges as well as to Erwin Welker for his panel modifications, extra camera views and rear gunner view.

FSX – Douglas DC 8-62 Updated. This is an FSX update of the legendary Douglas DC 8-62 jetliner, originally designed by Capt. Italo D’Attomo. To my knowledge this is the only freeware DC8 with functioning VC available anywhere. The model utilizes the photo-realistic 2D panel by Sid Star with now FSX compatible gauges. The VC has been entirely remodelled and enhanced as well as the whole interior. I’ve added smoke and burner effects too. As there is only this Alitalia livery available, other repaints would be very welcome. The aircraft very likely runs in FS2004 and P3D/3. The panels utilize many of the great gauges by Philippe Wallaert. Thanks to Capt. D’ Attomo for the original model and to Philippe Wallaert for his

This is a panel update for the Super 71 by the late Paul Clawson featuring a new enhanced VC and a 2D panel added, as there was none included in the original package. I’ve also included smoke effect. All credits go to Paul Claswson for this awesome for the original model.
