FSX and FS2004 Douglas C-74 Globemaster I The C-74 was planned during World War 2 as a much bigger successor to the C-54 Skymaster. An airliner version was also planned, and PanAm actually ordered it as the 'DC-7'. After the war it became obvious that a better design could be made, so only 14 C-74 Globemasters were built. The airliner version was cancelled, and the military version was developed into the C-124 Globemaster II with a much larger fuselage. Nevertheless, the C-74s gave good service until retired in the mid 'fifties, a few of them continued in use as commercial cargo transports. By Jens B. Kristensen.

FSX Douglas DC-6 ver 2.0. This package includes the DC-6 in its earliest form with short nose (no weather radar) and round-tipped Curtiss Electric propellers as delivered to the first DC-6 customers in 1946-48. The later aircraft had the more well-known, square-tipped 'paddle' propellers, and this version is included as well. Most, if not all, of the early DC-6's were later modernized to this standard, and many (especially from the U.S. operators) had weather radar installed in a longer nose. This package contains most variants, including liveries for American, United, Delta, Panagra, SAS, Sabena and KLM, nine aircraft in all. The KLM repaint is by Maarten Brouwer. Flight dynamics based on work by FSAviator. For FSX only; FS2004 users should get DC6_V20.zip instead. By Jens B. Kristensen.

FS2004/FSX Morko Morane WW2 Fighter (fixed invalid filename which was causing dead link). The increasing obsolescence of the M.S.406 led the Finnish Air Force to order, on 22 October 1942, the installation of a Klimov M-105P in an M.S.406 airframe. The M-105P engine, derived from the HS 12Y, afforded 1,100hp for take-off, the prototype conversion was flown on 4 February 1943 as the Mörkö (Ghost) or Mörkö-Moraani. Successful trials resulted in the decision to bring all surviving M.S.406 and M.S.410 fighters to Mörkö standard. Two versions included. GMAX model by A.F.Scrub

Kruse-Curtiss Flyer. This model was designed from pictures of my Great-Uncle Frank Kruse's plane combined with plans of other Curtiss planes of the time. I'm estimating that the plane was built in 1910 or 1911 from Curtiss plans published in 'Popular Mechanics'. The Curtiss museum is not aware of any Curtiss designs that used this style aileron, however the rest of the plane is obviously Curtiss. We don't know what Uncle Frank was thinking, maybe this style aileron was easier to rig. He flew the plane in the Chicago and central Illinois area and didn't die in the plane. Other than the pictures and my Grandmothers stories of some of Frank's other exploits not much is known of what became of his plane. And yes, that is Frank in the plane - at least the best I could do with the pictures available.

FS2004/FSX P47 Razorback. When, in January 1943, the USAAF's 56th Fighter Group arrived in the United Kingdom with its massive Republic P-47 Thunderbolts, RAF Spitfire fighter pilots jokingly suggested that their American colleagues would be able to take evasive action, when attacked, by undoing their harnesses and dodging about the fuselages of their huge mounts. The Thunderbolt was certainly big, making it the largest and heaviest WWII single engined single-seat fighter ever built. Original mdl by K.Malinowski, upgraded to FS2004/FSX by A.F.Scrub

FS2004/FSX Brewster Buffalo F2a3 shipboard fighter In 1939, the F2A became the first monoplane fighter aircraft used by the US Navy. Later versions had a more powerful Wright R-1820-40 Cyclone engine of 1,200 hp (895 kw), a better propeller, and integral flotation gear, but still lacked pilot armor and self-sealing fuel tanks. Both the F2A-2 and the F2A-3 variants of the Brewster were liked by early Navy and Marine pilots, including Pappy Boyington, who praised the good turning and manoeuvring abilities of the aircraft. Original model by Thicko. Three versions included. Upgraded for FS2004/FSX by A.F.Scrub
