Seems that Petrobras is jealous....haha...
BTW, great units, Wyrm, as usual...
Well, we have some planes ... just don't know if they flew one day!!!
I decided to fool around a little bit in photoshop tonite and on a whim I did 3 international F-22 Raptors. I did them in the colors of the most likely customers if congress ever approves a Raptor export: Japan, Australia, Isreal.
Top of page.
Excellent Raptors, Wyrmshadow. It's a nice suprise really. I never knew a F-22 could look so good in desert colors.
Sweet work on the Raptors - and you even named one after me!
I noticed that also.
6 International Advanced Tactical Fighters top of page.
Be ready for 2 other unit packs in the next 24,48 hours.
we'll be ready!
You wouldn't plan a Indian aircraft pack by any chance ?
ready as always!
and the quality of the units are really amazing!
I always liked your near future aircraft, Wyrmshadow. They're sensible and good looking. Near future units are something that's badly missing and I'm glad to see your take on such things.
Seems I was an hour late with my update, hmmm. My other project is proceeding slower than planned too. It hard to convert storyboards into Flc files on one computer and then animate on another.. anyways.. 11 DeHavilland Vampires are at the top of the 1st page.
I've been killing myself over the last 3 days but I got 14 new Frogfoots up and posted.
Yee-haa! Thank you for all your work
Unbelievable you keep adding more and more aircraft.
Looks great. Now there's no excuse not to make that Ivorian scenario kicking around in your head.
The Raptors look very nice too. I especially like the desert Israeli one.
I'm not gernerally a fan of the modern era; prefer medieval.
But I was looking through and must say that this is quite a work.
I am especially drawn to the de Havilland Vampire.
You see, my dad passed away Feb 1. In looking through all the old photos to prepare his memorial service, we came across the picture below. That's dad on the top of the plane, just in case you missed the red arrow. He apprenticed at DH after the war. Another of his big projects was to design the structure for the instrument panel on the Comet. I don't know what his job was for the Vampire. Dad went on to work for Canadair, Lockheed, Western Gear, and of course, Boeing.
A few of his achievements:
Helping to design the first HUD (head-up display); he used my motorcycle helmet, weighted with sand to determine what sort of energy the pilots head would have to absorb if it slammed into the display prism.
Helping to design the F-14 weapons rail.
Helping to design the gatling gun aiming system on the A-10. He got to watch it destroy old tanks & trucks in the Nevada desert.
Helping to design the stairway & flight deck for the 747.
Lead on a brand new design for outward & upwardly opening doors on the 767 (he received 4 patents for this, it was instrumental on getting the 767 certified for trans-oceanic flight with only 2 engines.)
Lead on the design of the new wing for the 777.
Anyway, I've co-opted your thread enough. Thank you for your patience.
Thank you for the story, you must be very proud to have had a father with such achievements. Sorry to hear the passing of a great guy in the aeronautical world.
Just took a look at the picture. That's a DH Sea Vixen... I'll be making one of those too.
How do you tell the Vampire from the Sea Vixen?
