Thanks to the sense of humor of a friend named Jedster, I learned a long time ago about the value of those industrial clear vinyl keyboard covers! I'm gonna need to start reaching for one when I see Milton start preview threads now!

2S1 huh? I'm gonna have to break out my copy of the 7 and see if I can pull off that smooth an approach!

Thanks Fled! I've heard nothing but good things about this place so I thought I'd drop by - think I might have to stay a while!

I'd say that Gronlandsfly's interior designer is on some great drugs! Either that or you're checking the texture mapping! Mr. Green

You are right of course Tom. Smile I prefer to test with an old livery since we wish to stay compatible with the many out there.

Still chunking' away at exterior, interior, and panel/gauge changes and making great progress. Hope to be done with the exterior this weekend and get back inside.

Here are some shots while ferrying the -7 from KDFW to KIAH Houston for some outboard engine work. Flying with just two lit, she will takeoff and fly well, and crusie at 165 knots. She is a sweety for sure. Wink

She sure is looking good Milton. I can't hardly contain myself, waiting for it. From what I see here, you guys deserve a big pat on the back.

Waiver? Oooops! Smile

Everyone, I really appreciate the comments. It's nice to know that the Dash 7 is still an appreciated aircraft. It is such a great bird. Meanwhile, Joáo Paz is still after the textures and making good progress in the VC cabin.



I am curious how many of you are interested in a cargo version update as well as the passenger version. I think I can pull over aspects of that model and maybe with 30 hours work or so on my part, have a cargo update too.



This livery and picture is of the current cargo version with textures by André Folkers available at Avsim and Flightsim.

If I even had just the cockpit section of the VC in the Cargo version, I'd be in 7th Heaven!




What - me? Make a pun???
