AC 500S to the MRO (minor overhaul) - WIP

Recommended Posts

It certainly is a fantastic looking aircraft. Had been on my wish list for years.

 

I know its and old model, but it does not deserve to be neglected, so I sent it to the MRO for an

interior overhaul. Won't be immaculate, though.

This is WIP, not done yet.

Great stuff looking forward to it are you going to remove the wear on the yoke bases also - I would assume you would be if you are cleaning things up - good stuff - I like either way - nice to have choices for sure  :smile:

 

Brighter shots would be nice as it is hard to see right now

Very nice work so far. Is it possible to spray some 409 Cleaner on those leather seats as well and scrub some of that grime out???? :D

This bird is so dirty one would think it should be based in Atlanta.  Nice work Ramon.

Hello Guys/Gals

 

Here is my take on a less neglected cockpit-cabin interior.

 - Reduced wear and tear from carpet and some panels.
 - Removed rusted/oxide surfaces
 - Scrubbed dirt from some seat bases.
 - Minor leather cleaning on cockpit. (cabin is next)

 

I will still be cleaning up this one.

 

Two more pics with lights.

Thanks to Carenado for letting me redistribute the textures.

Cheers.

Much better thank you. :smile: I'm using the this in FSX and all looks good but I did notice the ELT is now missing. It's just a black texture now. Also there are some black textures behind the red mixture lever that looks off.

I didn't touch the ELT or the levers, but Let me see what I can do about that.

I would suggest you post a picture showing the missing or black textures.

Is there any way you could make one that looks factory fresh?  Brand new?

I chuckle that they spend extra effort making it look worn and realistic to the model depicted, and then immediately everyone wants a pristine time machine version ha.... yet, had they released a showroom fresh model we'd fuss it's too clean lol

 

Ahh the joys of simmers  :wink:

 

Great looking bird in either version for sure!

Yep, nice to have options. Now I have cleaner interior, nice newer paint job (Thanks to Rich) and a new sound set :smile:

 Thanks to all those folks who make this possible....
