Drool!!  Snort!!!  When??  Where??  I seldom get payware aircraft; I prefer to "role my own" but I certainly will go for this model!  BTW, regarding the booze, did you know the spec for the Vought SBU-1 said that the baggage compartment behind the rear gunner should be large enough for a "Navy Ration" of Rum?

XLS versions are only for cibbilian airyplanes.  It is presumed that the military need not be told of the obvious load requirements...

(side note:  Isn't there a photo floating someplace of a Spit with two barrels of "morale fortification" on the wings?

Francois from FSAddon Publishing commissioned the Lizzy and supplied a superb assortment of documents, pics, etc,
MilViz did the model and  i  the " Technician" am tasked with bringing her into FSX & FS9 by attending to the systems animations,
making the gauges and specialty coding for engine management as well as taking  care of its materials palette and any extra features .
Release will probably come in the early fall as few release in mid summer , giving plenty of time for beta tasting ( no typo ) Cool

Lysander must be on a lot of folk's minds these days.

Here's the latest scenery object I helped texture for the Flight Ontario folks and their BCATP project.

Congratulations on the Lysander project Chuck. Looks like you and Montreal are becoming a center for flight sim development.

Chuck - something just dawned on me - the model is shown with Type "A" roundels on the top of the wing, whereas the standard for that period was type "B" (no white).

Since the model shown is that flown by the Shittleworth collection, the photo linked to below shows the type B roundels on top.

**Note, this is NOT to say that at some point, either the WW2 aircraft or the current Shuttleworth airplane was (or is) flown with the Type A roundels***.

In "my" mind's eye, a special ops Lysander would have had ALL Type B's on the black finish...  but then again.

You are right about the Shuttleworth  collection  being the source of the models paint job , the images we have of it show type 1' on the side.
We have a couple of dozen taken by Francois on site but i didn't have any of the upper wing surface unfortunately, i did find one of another site that show type two roundels on top , also the red wasnt quite right  and  needed justment, i added a pilot while i was at it.

With further refinements to the specularity of the paint finish and some strength to the normal map, as well as a reflection map and custom fresnel ramp adding to the mix to get the look closer to the real plane , believe it or not there were about one hundred models burnt to get to that result and i might yet add a tad more shine .

Hi Chuck

Superb job mate

Please remember to reverse the tail flash on the port side of the fin though as on the photos  Wink (red part is forward on both sides for UK WWII insignia)

We need a good Lysander mate

Regards
Rick

Nice model Chuck, but I dare to say, the black textures are too black.
I'd say light them up/desaturate a bit and bake a bit of shinyness into the skin as opposed to using "dynamic" shine only.
Oh well, black and white is always the hardest part.
