FSX – The Douglas Dolphin Updated. This is an FSX update for the FS2004 Douglas Dolphin package by David Wooster and his team. FSX simmers who have downloaded the FS2004 version have been confronted with a sinking plane on water, so here is a correction for that issue. The package features the original 18 liveries and an additional one (USAF-WWII) by Andre Ludick. The VC has been completely reworked to make it look more realistic. Additionally, the cabin interior has been drastically enhanced and smoke effect as well as new camera views for the copilot and the passenger cabin have been added. The bulk of the credit goes to David Wooster and his team for designing the original model and textures, also, credit goes to Andre Ludick for his USAF repaint and, above all, for correcting the contact points to make the plane flyable in FSX.

FSX/P3D – Rogozarski IK-3 Updated. The Rogožarski K-3 was a 1930s Yugoslav monoplane single-seat WWII fighter. Unlike the famous P51, Me-109 or Spitfire this plane is pretty much unknown nowadays. Nevertheless, this update should be looked upon as a tribute to the K-3. The package features new and more realistic panels and gauges, although the gauges are not authentic Yugoslav as there are none available for the simulator. Also, the flight dynamics have been improved considerably. This was originally a CFS2 model, made flyable for FSX by Erik Hertzberger, original CFS2 model by William Dickens and his team, added camera views by Erwin Welker.

FSX/P3d – Arado Ar 24. The Arado Ar 240 was a German twin-engine, multi-role heavy fighter aircraft, developed for the Luftwaffe during World War II by Arado Flugzeugwerke. Its first flight was in 1940, but problems with the design hampered development, and it remained only marginally stable throughout the prototype phase. The project was eventually cancelled, with the existing airframes used for a variety of test purposes. This compilation of three variants of the Ar 240 is an FSX/P3D (version3) update of the FS2004 models by Chris Lampard, Morton and Shessy of SOH (reconnaisance, fighter bomber and nightfighter). It features FSX compatible all German gauges, a modified 2D panel and a new VC design. Smoke effect and new camera views added. New 2D panel configuration and camera views by Erwin Welker, VC design and configuration as well as smoke effect by Michael Pook.

FSX/P3D – Vought FU7 Cutlass Updated. The Vought F7U Cutlass was a United States Navy carrier-based jet fighter and fighter-bomber of the early Cold War era. It was a highly unusual, semi-tailless design, allegedly based on aerodynamic data and plans captured from the German Arado company at the end of World War II. Regarded as a radical departure from traditional aircraft design, the Cutlass suffered from numerous technical and handling problems throughout its short service career. The type was responsible for the deaths of four test pilots and 21 other U.S. Navy pilots. This is an FSX update of the FS2002/2004 model deigned by RanchoJen models and features a modified 2D panel and a highly detailed static VC (non-functional gauges). Automatic smoke and afterburner effects added. Credits go to the designers mentioned above, whom I’ve tried to ask their permission for this update but their E-Mail as well as the website mentioned in their readme is invalid anymore.
