Work in progress: Sikorsky S-38 Explorer's Air Yacht

Here is my newest project. I came across a blender model of my favourite airplane the other day.

So I just have to make it work in Arma.

The Sikorsky S-38 was an American twin-engined 8-seat amphibious aircraft.

It was sometimes called "The Explorer's Air Yacht" and was Sikorsky's first widely produced amphibious flying boat. (Wikipedia)

Thanks for the feedback. It's a really nice model from Helijah, who made it for FlightGear. I am really happy he allows us to use it.

So far I had to take away the engines as they were too detailed for oxygen to handle. Before I can fit some simpler dummy engines I have to reduce the poly count somehow.

 

Landing and taking off from sea works fine - I am using the adapted float script technology Gnat gave me for my An-2.

 

This will probably take a couple of weeks till i can publish a public alpha version.

Polished the surfaces a bit so they sparkle in the sun.
