This would be a cool flyable in FB! It even comes with Michael Knight's KITT-like wooden sports car steeringwheels: only the dices on the mirror are missing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'm surprised it looks so simple for a tri-engined plane.

Too bad I'm not a modeller, on the computer that is.

You need alot more shots that just one, you need to the sides, up and down, rear quarters, fore right and fore left views to make a complete cockpit.

Yeah, I know.
It would be the uber c.r.a.p. plane to have, though. I'm not a modeller anyway and I don't think anyone is interested in doing a plane that's only a target in this game http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I just liked the shot and saw a real Ju-52 flying in France http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif A Spanish version -fuselage is a real 1939 German made one though!

They do have a good Lufthansa JU-52 out for FS-2004. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif

Can buzz around the skies of Germany and Europe, surrounded by fast-paced jets in your little Ju-52.

lol, I've done it a bit before, as well as simulated sailplane flights. Good for when your not in the mood to blow something up.

Shoot, those red knobs look like fire extinguishers!

I love planes that can un-engine fire themselves.

it would be boring like hell !

because IL2/FB/AEP doesnt give you a smallest clue how difficult it was to fly such planes.
in the game its enough to give the CSP the full rpm - than open throttle so far the engine doesnt overheat. sometimes you have to change mixture at a given altitude , sometimes you have to shift the loader.

this game is a Combat "simulator" - not a flight simulator.

Ju-52s not only performed transport missions, but also paratrooper drops, bombing missions etc etc.

Boring as hell? I'd love to see a Stalingrad resupply campaign, especially in a *realistic* online environment.

I do agree the level of depth of the real thing is nowhere near or sim-level. But that's not only with this plane, but all... (Starting a real P-47 takes a little more than pressing the "I" button http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif)
