Hey wait a minute!After closer examination I spotted a couple of rivets 1 mm out out of place and that skin wrinkle in the left cowling is entirely unacceptable, it should wrinkle left to right instead of right to left.A three year wait for this??? :( :(

Have to disagree with you Skully . Those rivets are actually 1.5mm out of place :( .Seriously though, this plane looks great. Realair really seem to be able to work that bump mapping texture.

You guys are worried about rivets? I blew the picture up 200x and noticed some recombinant dust and minute oil stains preserved about 2.1 inches down the length of the right aileron. I conclude that the model is therefore based on a well maintained Duke, with perhaps 10,000 hours on it, and flown by a guy from New Mexico. This is the kind of accuracy that I am looking for. Well done, Real Air!

IMO, It's very impressive looking. Personally, I like fine artwork for my simulated aircraft. It's the reason I'll buy Captain Sim "shells" just for the exteriors. :( http://realairsimulations.com/duke09/scree...09_previewshotsL.Adamson
Probably my next payware purchase--always thought the Duke looked like it was cruising at 220kts standing still. Can't wait to see the interior previews and the VC. Since moving to FSX I've become quite a VC fan on GA aircraft. It's a fair bet if it's a Real Air product, flight dynamics will be dead on.Regards,John

I'm a fan of VC's for GA also. I also have a tendency to look out over the wings much of the time when flight simming (and real life). Therefore, good bump mapping for wing panels and rivet lines add a lot to the illusion of being in a real airplane. As I mentioned previously; artwork and graphics are high on my list of what I want in a simulated airplane, as well as believable flight dynamics. L.Adamson

Geofa,I was afraid you were leaving our beloved FSX for X Plane. Now that you've expressed interest in the Duke, I'm relieved.Stan

Glad to hear that. I, too, cannot wait for the Duke. I love VFR flying!

VC screenshots are now available from Realair.http://realairsimulations.com/duke09b/scre...09_previewshotsLooks nice. All the text seems very readable in the screenshots. Like the BIG clock in the middle of the yoke. Although I suspect the GPS uses the default FSX functionality (although the knobs and buttons look new) rather than a custom GPS like RealityXP make.

Looks fantastic....but yea, I doubt the GPS will be swappable with the RXP unit....darn it.

A true Beech Dual Manifold/Rpm Gauge/engine gauges have my attention-along with the airspeed indicator/yokes etc. When you spend many hours looking at these it makes a huge reality when you see them in the sim. Beech fixtures tend to stay pretty standard.Interesting that the background scenery in the shots appears to be photoreal.This aircraft looks/will be stellar...

What a fraud!!! They took some pictures in a real Duke and tried to pass them off as their VC! LOL...It has an exterior, it has a VC... Why oh why can't they release it? I'm drooling.Robert Alley

Holy wowzers!!! That's fantastic!!! DROOOOLYeah, they actually make the default GPS looks decent with that 3d gauge. It would be awesome if we could put the RXP unit in

Looks great but we can expect nothing less from RealAir. Their gauge treatments set the visual standard for payware.

Nice interior wing shots among everything else! This plane looks amazing inside and out. I'm sure the sound set will be great as well knowing RA. Is that socal scenery in these shots anyone know?
