    One of Al's install has an old Spit MkVb from years ago.I think he tested it.

    Nice collection of Spits there Aussie.

    What I'd really like to see are some multi-LOD Seafires ...

    I've been messing around with the FDG B-17E

    I think I've fixed the problems with the AI nosing over at takeoff (especially carrying any payload), & she no longer breaks the tailwheel during the players takeoff roll.

    I kept coming across references to 300 & 600lb bombs (not 250 & 500lb), found some details of pre-war mk1(modified) bombs, so made some...

    Also decided to try & make an SCR-521 radar aerial installation too...

    I also keep tinkering with Capt Kurt's F6F3 Hellcat

    The Royal Navy's mkI's seem to have just used the starboard bomb pylon (at least in the ETO), so

    I needed a sky colour droptank & single bomb pylon. Also, reading David Hobb's book about the Home Fleet operations it becomes apparent that by late '43 the Fleet Air Arm had moved over to using MC (Medium Capacity) series bombs. These are more like the DBolt US bombs in shape, so they needed making too...

    And I haven't forgotten about Wolfi's TBF.

    Observer, & domed windows, & some work on ordnance loadouts...

    Oh, and the coast in the F6F & TBF screengrabs is the northern coast of Papua, moving eastwards towards Saidor, & then onto Madang

    Elsner,

    The ships Talon used for the Pearl Harbor missions were the original ships and he modified them so they wouldn't sink and had no guns.

    The VN ships were the newer ships.Talon also had the 6 Japanese carriers that attacked Pearl made by VN,they were never released.

    Some shots of the Saidor section of the North PNG coast, plus the landing strip at Wantoat (alt. 4080ft!), & Kalapit (before it was developed by US Army engineers).

    The North coast up to Saidor is done. Here's some shots of the Saidor strip circa early '44, & the cub strip just to the west at Biliau.

    Onto Madang...

    This B-17E had an interesting back story, thought I'd have a stab at getting it into CFS 2 ...

    I had heard that B-17's in the PTO were terrible at hitting ships, moving or not. This one seemed to have solved that riddle - great bombardiers (of course we don't know how many they actually targeted during their entire tour).

    Apparently she was crewed by some hotshot gunners as well (18 kills!). I imagine that defending against Zero's and Oscars at gun range must have been like swatting gnats!

    I could definitely see this one in the "Hangar"!

    I took some time away from hand-flying rivers linked to G2K to try to create the short-lived runway complex at Gusap...

    I've finished the coastlines all the way round to Awar Point, but there's lots of rivers to map, plus create land & waterclass.

    Decided the landclass really needed doing, the Ramu Valley floor was grassland, not dark green jungle...

    Created some subdued grassland textures to use with EZ-Landclass, I'm quite pleased with the initial look so far ...

    The Gusap field layout isn't very well documented, as it was not active for very long, the war in PNG moved away pretty quickly.

    Mainly grass & gravel runways, spartan facilities & not much tree cover. Difficult not to look too empty & indefensible against air attack.

    From the few photos available it looked like the hardstands used some "shallow" c-shaped revetments, so knocked these up in G-Max...

    Oh my gosh, those are so gorgeous!
    Do not fear the enemy, for they can take only your life. Fear the media far more, for they will destroy your honour.

    UncleTgt, your landclass scenery looks great and is a vast difference from the stock offering. I have a question. Which version of EZ-Landclass did you use? I see the latest is 3.01, then 3.0 and finally 2.00 which I have. Thank you sir~

    The kunai grass looks great John. I didn't realise Gusap was so extensive. Thanks again for transforming New Guinea and the Solomons.
