FS2004/FSX Focke Wulf Fw44 WW2 trainer One of the more successful pre-war Luftwaffe trainer aircraft was the Focke-Wulf Fw 44 Stieglitz. The Fw 44 turned out to be a very successful aircraft, with fine harmony of control, great manoeuvrability and full aerobatic capabilities, which also made it famous in the contemporary aviation world.

2 'what if' repaints for the XF-11 Redux package. A 1946 RAF requirement for a long range, high altitude strategic recconiassance aeroplane to supplant war-weary Mosquito's, resulted in a small number of R-11A's being taken on charge, as Athena PR.Mk.I, and Mk.IA's with special electronic equipment, pending introduction of the Canberra. With a pressurized cockpit, service ceiling in excess of 49,000 ft, 4000 miles+ range, and a 400kt groundspeed at altitude,the 20 or so Athena's roamed at will across the Iron Curtain, providing targeting data,weather,ELINT and strike route information for RAF Strike Command, and remained in RAF service untill 1958. 2 aeroplanes are depicted in standard dinural and nocturnal schemes of the day. Not without precident, as a small number of RB-45C's were bailed to the RAF for clandestine overflights of the East Bloc in the early'50's. Also includes 2 revised Config.files, adding landing light,beacon,strobes and position light, one standard FS lights, and one for ShockWave payware lights.Contrails added at -29 F, airshow smoke moved to position on #2 engine exhaust, red VC lighting, exhaust flame effect (on cockpit light key- CTRL-L) and start-up effect. Tested in FSX SP1. Model: Ian Lawrence. Classicwings version: Craig Richardson Repaints: 3/7charlie. Requires XF-11 redux package.

FSX Grumman XF5F-1 Skyrocket The Skyrocket first flew in 1940 and was very fast and otherwise advanced for it's time. The Navy decided it wasn't interested in twin engine fighters and it was not mass produced. Grumman did use lessons learned from this prototype to later develop the very successful F7F Tigercat series. This is a native FSX Acceleration project. It has .dds textures, specular shine, reflective glass, etc.The VC has working instruments and animated flight controls. There is no 2D panel. It has the necessary entries in the aircraft .cfg file so it can catapult from and trap on an Acceleration style carrier. By Paul Clawson

Classicwings version: Craig Richardson Repaints: 3/7charlie. For XF-11 Redux , or the Classicwings version.

Textures only. Another R-11A, this time a surplus civil machine.There is ample precedent for a civil tanker, SiS Q operated tanked F7F's back in the '60's and 70's, and F-6 reporters were tanked,though I don't know where you would hang a tank on a F-11. Or use it for a super bird-dog, or a survey and mapping ship, or camera platform. But she sure looks sexy in Aero Union 'warpaint'. N927AU, Aero Union 27. Requires the XF-11 Redux package. Model by Ian Lawrence. Classic Wings version by Craig Richardson. Repaints by 3/7charlie.

This is another freeware lost classic, with a very nice VC,nice model,and blistering performance. If you want to blast along at 400+ kts/50,000ft behind 56 cylinders, 8720 Cu", and 16 prop blades, this is your machine. Ian Lawrence produced the original model, and Craig Richardson at Classic Wings put the cockpit in it and polished the original textures and FDE. This is my contribution, 4 'what if?'textures for the machine,if it had made it into service,as the R-11A/WR-11A, in the '49-54 period.The 'Square I' marking and black anti-searchlight scheme was carried by RB-45C Tornado's operating out of Japan during the Korean war. The other 2 schemes, I pulled out of my hat, but comform to markings and color schemes carried by contemporary USAF aeroplanes. The model was a FS 2002/2004 model, but runs very nicely in FSX SP1, with excellent frame rates, a perfect cockpit, and minor 'clouds in front' prop issues in some aspects(no wherenear as bad as some others). The screen shots are in FSX SP1. Don't turn your nose up because its a port-over, its worth it.
