OK, I know this is a BIG wish-list, but as I can't do them myself I need to
rely on the kindness of strangers.
If any of the aircraft on my list are already out there, please let me know
where I can get them. Now, I'm more than willing to act as a reference source
for just about everything I have listed below. I can supply scale drawings, a
few scanned photos or just books where you can get the stuff yourself. All you
need to do is ask.
Maybe for Xmas I'll get Design Studio.

SOME FICTIONAL AND FANTASY AIRCRAFT FOR CFS1, CFS2, FS98 & FS2000:
In the 1930s, the magazine AIR TRAILS published a string of ‘exciting’
adventure stories centering on an aerial "Indiana Jones" named Bill Barnes.
While the writing wasn’t much (compared with today’s authors), the action was
exciting and the planes... Oh! The Planes! Designed by Frank Tinsley, these
aerial phantoms were unique. They were usually tandem-twin engine machines and
tri-phibians with retractable landing gear and outrigger floats and equipped
with large central floats, some retractable. They must have been heavy and
clumsy, but the stories had these machines flying fast and sweet and turning on
a dime and giving you 8 cents change! Still they were spectacular looking
I have a collection of drawings of these planes and would be willing to share
the information to interested parties. Of course, there’s a price! Let me be
one of your test pilots. And you thought I would say money!
Some years ago, Rowan Software in collaboration with Mindscape released a
role-playing game/flight simulator called Airpower. Now this game wasn’t too
popular: the graphics were so-so, the story was mediocre. But once again the
Planes came through. That was the great appeal (at least, to this author).
These machines resembled the technology from the late 1920s or early 1930s,
with some leftovers from World War One. There was a smattering of post-World
War Two technologies, but the planes were all open-cockpit demons with truly
lurid color schemes.
I have screenshots of most of these planes and I’m working on scale drawings of
same, maybe someone would like to make models of them. I would be willing to
share the information to interested parties. Of course, there’s a price! Let me
be one of your test pilots. And you thought I would say money!
Whether you’re a fan of the Japanese form of animated features known as Anime
or not, there are some real interesting aircraft portrayed in some of these
films. The most notable are the films of Hayao Miyazaki. There already exist
two MS FS planes derived from two of his greatest movies, PORCO ROSSO and
NAUSSICA. There are more aircraft in both movies than are available to MS FS
fans. Another great anime feature, and one that has some truly unusual
aircraft, is THE WINGS OF HONNEAMISE. There are some fascinating canard-pusher
fighters and trainers and interesting jet fighters and bombers. The film itself
is worth a look and the planes would be a great addition to the MS FS world.
