Bristol 171 Sycamore in the works

Post by Rick Piper » 19 Jun 2007, 12:11

Hi Guys

Been on this one for a couple of months and now i am pretty sure it will eventually get released (sometime between now and Christmas "IF" possible).

Other models in progress too but no details till i am 100% that they will be finished as i have shot myself in the foot with previews too many times
(Oi! who knicked my headslap Emoticon? :sad: )
[Edit: By Ben]
you mean this one Rick :doho: :lol:

Not sure on liveries but currently UK SAR & Royal Australian Navy.

Rick

Hi Guys

Thanks for the comments

i forgot to mention the pack will also contain Luftwaffe SAR & UK Army

& possibly more with Belgium AF too with no winch.

Also high probability of the Prototype Mk 3a that BEA trialed for a year or two.

But that is not a 100% in stone thing yet as if it does get done it will have a non correct Mk.14 VC as the 3a was very differently fitted inside the cockpit with left seat pilot etc not right seat like the Mk.14.

But nobody else is making a Sycamore for now so it should suffice.

In my view is much better model wise than even my favorite the Chipmunk & 748 so it should gain a few fans when released.

Regards
Rick :wink:

That looks stunning Rick, I just have to say thank you for taking the time to work on these and release them as freeware.

hi rick.
I am not a helicopter fan myself,but with a model that good,i might just be converted.
And if its better than your hs748 and chipmunk,then it will be firstclass,well done,and i cannot wait to see,the others your working on,no matter what they are,they too will be well worth the wait.
regards alan. :thumbsup: :smile:
