Paul Clawson's Short Shetland, update V.1 2020, a set of improved (piglet) aircrew, dialed in material settings. dabbed some paint, improved the look of the painted on portholes. l'Azur seaplane numerical hull simulation installed. Sound alised to default FSX DC-3. A sound file with more grunt is really required. Milton's Ventura, fer instance, though a sleeve-valve engine sound set would be better. Only tested in FSX, though P3D compatability is fine. It's big, it's fast, smooth FPS and loads of fun.

Short S.25 Sunderland package for FSX. Model from CFS3/FS9 by Ted Kaniuka, Steve 'Sdbolt', and Shessi. FSX native materials and tags, nice paintwork, L'Azur Seaplane performance mod. It's not a study level model,it is simple, but looks great, and is super FPS slippery; very important when schvitz-hawking a large convoy. Sunderland I, III and IIIA models, or, close enough. Me likee most beaucoup!
