Simply outstanding work in short time.

With glowing reports of the Mustang's low altitude performance, and, intelligence on the Nazi's use of the Stuka dive bomber, the Army placed an order for 500 Mustangs equipped with dive brakes and hard points for two 500 lb. bombs, designating it as the A-36 Apache dive bomber.

The P-51 was essentially designed for long range pursuit, yet the dive bomber version worked very well. Of the 500 Apaches built, only 177 were lost in combat.

i dont think so...
its even worse because the model looks wonderful and i would love to fly it.i guess it would be one of my favourite planes, you can dogfight and divebomb, my two most liked employments in FB.

Why wouldn't it go into FB? I'm pretty sure the guy designed it to go into the game from the start. He's done the LOD's and now it looks like a nearly complete first LOD.

The timeframe is IMPRESSIVE! This was built very quickly it seems, hopefully with a high degree of accuracy and everything is good for implementation into the game. I don't think I've seen a single WWII simulator with this version of the Mustang in the game...it'd be amazing to see!

Let's hope that it makes the final cut. I do know he was making quickly to get inot the pay add-on. So let's all hope that this forgotten Mustang make's it.

Will this model have the 4 x 20mm cannons or was that only the Mustang 1A as it is very similar shaped aircraft?

Looks nice!

No this model should have 4 .50 Cals & 2 hardpoints for bomb loads with Dive Flaps that deploy on both the top & bottom of each wing.

the Mustang IA had the 20mm cannons. I can't remember what the Mustang 1 had.
As a matter of personal opinion it would be better for the A-36 to come in USAAF colors & the Mustang I & IA to come in RAF Markings.

God do I miss flying.... Doesn't that plane suck at high alt but has great speed down low?

Looks incredible. Meshsmoother has really done an awesome job with this.
I hope he makes it into the addon.

Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

yes Devil by all accounts she really sucked above 15000.

Down low under 15000 the brits Loved her! was a real trun & burner. they used it for dive bombing & close air to ground suport. The usaaf wanted a dive bober that could beat the stukas. they forund it in the A-36.
been reading up on this plane since Mesh started her. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I don't want to sound ungrateful, as I do appreciate the effort, and 100% better than I could do. But I really think the poly count is too low. It's looks boxy. I think it needs to be smoothed out some.

Chimp it's the LOD 3. Lod 0 - 2 should be much more detailed I think.

SC. This is LOD_3 that he is showing. LOD_0 is the highest detail. I think its damn fine work considering its only 1500 polygons

Ok, I didn't know. So this is like a "low res" version?

Hi, Meshmother,

Don't forget that baby's got 2 0.5 cal M2s in the nose as well (below the propeller). I posted some links on the other A36 thread.

Damn, I'm gonna have to get a new PC just so I can play FB and get all these add-ons.
