Some more WIP pics:

The revamped large hangar at Wisley - a big improvement over my previous effort which I think might have been my first ever FS building :$

That hangar is a huge improvement, Toby and the clubhouse is even better! I was hoping to make Wisley for Gen X (and ask permission to use the old hangar of yours, there) but this new scenery may make it obsolete before I start! Are you doing this for the default FSX only or for those who use photoscenery as well?

Trevor - 'Fraid I'm a bit of a luddite (FS9 user) with tools that only work with SF9 and earlier versions. I have a reluctance to move to new tools, esp anything I have to part with cash for :xgrin: . However, if there is any known way of converting API files (SCASM macros) to something that will compile in FSX, then be my guest.

Wisley and Nicosia (post 1968, pre 1974 era) will be the first releases and Brooklands will be some way further behind. Despite having a lot of photos, I could do with a lot more as theres not many good quality ones available on the net of the buildings that dont exist anymore.

I'm thinking of visiting the museum and asking (in advance) to have a look through their archive and maybe also the local libraries (Weybridge or Byfleet). Does anyone know if Julian Temple is still the aviation curator at the museum?

Hi Toby..

Julian is still at Brooklands though he's not got the same hat on. His current title is General Manager - Museum Operations ;) You can get him at JTempleATBrooklandsMuseum.com (substituting the AT for @) ;)

Toby, can you compile your hangars to .bgl's? They can then be used in 'Instant Scenery' which works in FSX and FS9....unless I have got the wrong end of the stick!

The .bgl's need to be library.bgls otherwise they won't work with instant scenery etc.
API's will work just fine with fsx scenery.
