ha yep I can confirm that for you Adam - here is a pic taken yesterday of PV270 over in the Biggin Hill hangar at Ohakea.

Image

Thanks so much for the skin also Adam, managed to track down a copy from AussieX. Is there any chance of a bit of exhaust whitening along the sides? It def isn't new and shiny anymore :wink:

Image

Also a link to the Biggin Hill site for anyone that is interested..the first pic really shows up that whitening behind the exhausts also.

Cheers 8)

Thanks for the confirmation :-)

I'm sure the whitening would add a touch of realism. Definitely worth a go! Any other tweaks or weathering effects you can think while I'm at it? I think my repaint is of a fairly pristine aircraft. One would hope the real thing stays more or less that way also, LOL!

Just got back from the Ardmore show today. Doug Brooker's Spit displayed - along with the P-40 and 9 Harvards. A great day, but poorly attended for some reason. I suspect NZ Warbirds didn't publicise it too well :-( Shame ... they need every dollar to keep their fleet going.

Adam.

Yea that's a shame, not a great deal of publicity I guess.

As far as the condition of PV270 the wing surfaces etc are still in fairly clean condition - the yellow and red tape sections are still clean and bright at the moment, just the sides of the fuse are a bit grubby and have the matt whitening effect from the exhaust gasses I mentioned right down each side (a little hard to see properly in my pic above, but very matte cloudy whitish layer). My mate keeps giving Brendan a hard time saying it needs a good clean lol. I did notice your paint seems pretty pristine!

Here's a revision. Back to the green prop and some whitening added. I also made the exhausts blacker (they were rusty/brown before):

Image

... and ... a nice scenic shot to show what art FSX and A2A can produce!

WUPS!!!! I zipped up the wrong directory :( ... re-upped the proper (I hope!!) files now - please try again.

Nice pic - though I wonder whether that runway is quite long enough to get that Spit out of there! Even your fitters have walked away, not wanting to witness the attempt :lol: :lol: :lol:

Figured that may have been the case - looking good now!


Ha this is just out the front of 'My Hangar' at Queenstown airport, beside the Milford Sound Flights hangar...(which is where I will be storing my A2A jets when they are done :wink: )

HEY! - I paid good money for sole use of that hangar :P

Great scenery down that way huh - love just going for a cruise around the area using my TPC R470, which reminds me I must pop into Base Ops and grab myself a VNC C10 of Queenstown!

I'm always amazed at how those B737s and A320s get in there!

To be honest, though - I'm a bit "underwhelmed" by FTX NZQN. Too many floating houses, flashing runway tiles and overall lack of mountain texturing. Considering its location - mountains are the main feature - and deserve the same treatment some of the NA sceneries got.

NZMF is a beaut though!

Thanks! I've been lucky enough to see PV270 has put on some stunning displays at Ardmore or Tauranga airshows - such a total treat!
