Any chance of getting a Kar Air Finland DC-6 from the 1980's with the swing tail ?
I am going to do a little expansion pack for the DC-6 after I release the DC-7, to include some more paints, and Kar-Air will be on the list. I have a DC-6BST model in the Early DC-6AB folder, it has the hinge fairings, but I forgot to shadow them in the paint kit, so they are really hard to see. The paints that use the BST are the Spantax and two of the Northern Air Cargo serials.
The expansion will include a couple of unreleased models and a few more paints. It will be a straightforward drop-in-and-overwrite to the original package. I have no time frame for its release, but certainly by the end of summer if not earlier.
My focus, from this side of the pond, is to primarily re-populate the 1970s-1980s cargo ramp at KMIA with a lot of wonderous variety of cargo propliners. Obviously Europe, Africa, and Asia will also benefit from these models, but their heavy use by Latin American operators during that time is amazing from the standpoint of creating dynamic scenery for that time period in the sim. And, not all of my paints represent the up-and-up operators, the all-metal DC-6F with the blacked-out Mackey titles ("Trusted Friend") was impounded by US Customs for drug-running in the 80s (awkward, lol). Intercepts, anyone?
A quick word on the CL-44 and Britannia projects. They are temporarily stalled while I do some re-modeing of parts. The CL-44 was my very very first from-scratch model, and very inefficient/crude in terms of technique, and I am having some model compilation nightmares with them as a result. Because of this, I am re-building whole parts of the aircraft with current knowledge and talent, and since both project share a ton of common parts, they are intertwined until I can sort this out. I'll keep you posted, and they will be worth the wait. I'll bait you with the Connies and probably something else in the meantime.
Here is the preview for the DC-7 package. It's much smaller, since the DC-7 success was questionable and much shorter than the DC-4/6. 14 models, 40 repaints, and a paint kit. Now I can go back and fix a few little things on the DC-6 project and issue an update/expansion.
It's a good news day all around, I got these sorted out and brought up to current design standard so they compile just fine now. I am going to finish these for project release posthaste, as these are the finished models, just need to paint 'em up.
