Yes Outstanding and the most detailed and masterful artwork yet attained! I call attention to detail most may not notice. The DH-1 Catapult and Trolley.

Do you know who to ask about tweaking the Supermarine Walrus? I have been working on this since yesterday tweaking the model and textures for flying version ( Wethorford Brown? ) and fixed shipboard versions in two types. Also in this image I applied a file I made for the Flower Class Corvette, Weapon_Crew_BR Uniforms and Tommy Helmuts from Lookouts.Dat.

mikey117us,

the conversion of the Walrus model from SH5 to SH3 has been done by Testpilot.

I like your work on the Walrus; especially the texturing is much, much improved. I noticed an issue with the folded wings version (open 3D mode); if you wish I could fix that.

Cheers

Folded wings version was a rapid test, no solid interiors for wings, no correct mounting points for wheels down etc. I thought I would redo it after I'm done playing with the Model. I had got some inspiration from my youth when I had a 1/72 scale Matchbox Supermarine Walrus MkI Model. Then I recently watched this to be inspired to do a Wings Folded Version.

Since those screenshots, I built a Bristol Pegasus IV ( Lite version took 8 nodes to get it in ) and a Propeller, and Canted the Engine, Prop, and engine Nacelle 3 degrees port. and I added some missing Guy Wires. and Added Crew and Vickers MGs from UK_Guns.dat Tomorow I will build the Supercharger.

Yes walrus is remapped to textures from my hardrive I got at SAS1946 I shot a PM to the author for blessing at adapting to SH3. with permission also from testpilot1978 or Wethorford Brown I will release it as a Mod as the default 3D won't work. and there will be many different textures for FAA 1939-45 ( china white to small late war roundrals light gray underneath or seafoam ) also other operators Argentina. France, Ireland, Romania, Spain.

mikey117us,

when comparing the sizes of gunner and Vickers, I am under the impression they do not fit well. Or is just the perspective?

The gunner/observers are from WBs AI walrus unknown origin. I will measure size in Wings 3D also the walrus for comparison to known wingspan etc. the Bristol Pegasus was scaled to fit the plane. So,,,, minor tweaks "may" occur.

No worries, I compared the sizes in Wings3D; they are about right. So, it was just the perspective.

Waiting for permissions from SAS1946 Mission_Bug for textures. then I will ask permissions here. then a WIP Thread proper for the Supermarine Walrus. It is Close but of course the Walrus is out of scale. I have one resized and it gained more respect in overall look. But for now I will wait...
