MSFS Spitfire From Aeroplane Heaven On Final


We have now finalised textures for the interior and exteriormodels. The VC has its final "look"and we've added "restored"model ofN3200 - QV with the restored paint-scheme from Duxford IWM.

There is now a proper working castoring tailwheel and many otheruniquely-coded solutions for some of the sim shortfalls. She flieslike a Spitfire should and hits all the correct numbers. Onceairborne, she fits like a glove.

We are including a small range of authentic liveries for some ofthe "Aces" and a pro-quality paint kit for those who want to painttheir own. On that, we have done a lot of the hard work, packaging "A"and "B" scheme camouflage in wartime and factory fresh states.


The pilot has the correct Type 4B goggles and oxygen mask and isrealistically animated.

The engine covers can be removed to reveal that beautiful Merlinand there is a "big"powerful sound-pack to go with it.

Effects include heat blur from the exhaust and radiator.

The cockpit is fully animated with everything from working oxygencontrols right down to a working night blind for the landing gearlights indicator. This pulls down to eliminate glare from the lightsat night. Another detail, often overlooked is the canopy-lock positionfor the door. All takeoffs and landings are carried out with thecanopy open to ensure a quick exit in the event of an accident orworse. The door position effectively locks the canopy and stops itmoving forward if jolted or in flight in a dive. It's a very neat,simple solution - well done chaps!


Other things that work properly are the magnetos - you can do aproper mag-check when running up the engine.

We've spent a LONG time on the flight model. With a little ruddertrim or small corrections (and we mean small) she will track straightand true all the way to lift off.

Currently we are finalising sounds and polishing a few effects. Weare also preparing the manual. So, she should be with you shortly.Until then here are some screen shots taken directly from the sim.
