I bought the Airfix 1:72 Firefly Mk.5 when it was first released in the U.S. in 1966, and I was crazy about the airplane (had a great box top, too!). Hope somebody makes a great Fulmar for BOB.

It would be great to have the Firefly

Unfortunately the FF in the second picture crashed at Duxford at the 2005 Legends show. Although she didn't blow up, the result left both crewmen dead http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Those few moments leading up to her destruction are as clear now as they were when it happened http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I don't know why, but I love the look of that plane...

Of course I think the Wildcat is a great looking plane as well so what do I know...

I'm currently in the middle of making 2 more fairly large skin packs of the Fireflys; an Early Mk's Skinpack and a later MkV Skinpack.

I have this one:

http://www.fsplanet.com/15122004.htm

It's a little basic really, though you do have mixture and prop pitch control (and flaps). I'm not sure how complex the engine management gets, I didn't experiment too much, but judging by the screenshot of the cockpit you should it looks OK.. I just now flew it for a few minutes, the flight model isn't too great, but at least it didn't cost me anything. It's the early mark of the Firefly though, which is slightly less attractive than he later version, in my opinion.

The cockpit is only 2D as far as I know (I might have messed up the install though, which is very likely http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif), by that I mean that it is a static image, you cant't pan with the cockpit on and still see the controls.


Here are some screenshots I took:

Many thanks, MS. Maybe somebody will do a bang up Fulmar or Firefly for FSX. I have a nice Skua for FS9 I use for mock dive bomb missions. I have a passable Battle for FS9 which seems a tad too lively for a light bomber.

Great, accurate Battle plan, BillyTheKid!

Is the Skua freeware? If so I would be interested in looking at it if you have a link. EDIT: Is it this one?
