I just want to quickly share some information on our upcoming Boeing 247D. I’ve been avoiding public places and neglecting friendships for the past few months in order to get some serious work done on this project and we’re now in a really good spot to share some good news.
The 3D model is 99% finished, the only things left are stuff like cargo, icing and better windows. Animations are pretty much done and coded, with only few levers missing in the cockpit. The flight model is coming along very nicely and she starts behaving like the old lady she is. But here’s the best part:
The Boeing 247D will feature the first iteration of our Prop-o-Tronic physics engine for a more realistic system simulation! While I won’t be able to include all the features we had back for FSX/P3D, there will be enough cool stuff included in this addon to give it the Prop-o-Tronic batch.
If you’re at all interested, there are a few blog posts and plenty more images on our website.
Release date: I hope before Christmas, but we’ll see if we can make it! There’s still a lot left to do.
Can’t wait! Glad to see progress is coming along nicely, looks stunning!
This is such a beautiful work of art. I can’t wait to get my paws on it and learn how she flies.
an important piece of aviation history - the inspiration for Douglas’ DC-2, DC-3 as well as the foundation of the Boeing B-17.
It ought to be a blast to fly as a Wing42 project.
Stunning. Please take my money and don’t hold back on systems fidelity, raise the bar
I laughed at ‘avoiding public places and neglecting friendships to work on this’. The hardwork and sweat clearly shows through the screenshots. The plane looks absolutely fantastic. thanks for sharing.
Incredible work! Take your time to finish this piece of art.
This is looking awesome! Love seeing more older aircraft for MSFS. The glass panels get old after a while.
Really excited for this! You can tell she’s had a lot of heart and soul poured into her. Now I don’t need to buy that ‘other’ classic twin after debating it for so long.
Looks like it will be worth the wait!
Save one for me, please. I’m looking forward to it.
Looking absolutely gorgeous! Can’t wait to get my hands on it.
You really should use the wheels to land on, you know? =)
Outstanding, can’t wait
I have been waiting for this and following the updates since the announcement a year ago or so. Looks perfect. This is going to be my go-to airplane in the “older twin” category (I held off on AH Electra). Right this place is filled with Ju52… I know technically a tri-motor, not a twin.
Looking awesome, Vitus! You always do amazing work.
Love aircraft like this, I will certainly be purchasing a copy if its as good as it looks.
This looks wonderful! Can’t wait.
