Orbis Flying Eye Hospital for Thomas Ruth DC-10

Recommended Posts

Anyone willing to repaint the current Orbis Flying Eye Hospital, N330AU, on the Freeware Thomas Ruth DC-10?

Here's a link that has a bunch of photos of the aircraft: https://www.orbis.org/en/what-we-do/flying-eye-hospital

Here's the paintkit if anyone needs it: https://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=&Name=&FileName=td10pkit.zip&Author=&CatID=root

And the base model of the aircraft if needed: https://library.avsim.net/search.php?SearchTerm=tomdc10.zip&CatID=root&Go=Search

I have a rough done, as usual let me know what mods to make.

Thought you would have had this one on your payware dog

DC-10-30

Note that the Thomas Ruth DC-10 model allows you to customize the model by entering or omitting certain words from the title= line. See the "important.txt" document or whatever it is named in the paintkit .zip for the complete list

First off, already looking very good!

A few things that stand out immediately:

  1. There is a message in front of the left wing saying:
    Quote

    Thanks to the employees of
    FedEx for the donation of this aircraft

    fedex-logo.png

    (FedEx logo should not be that big relative to the letters)
    Zoom in on this image and you'll see itOrbis-MD-10-Flying-Eye-Hospital.jpg

  2. There is a section of lighter blue along the bottom of the tail

  3. Blink and you'll miss it, but following the same line as the light blue, there is a section of light gray going along the length of the fuselage until just forward of door 2L and (nonexistent) 2R

  4. Door L3 does not exist

  5. Another blink-and-you'll-miss-it: there is a singular window forward of the L4 door and one under the "T" in "hospital" between door L3 (nonexistent) and L4 

This is chugging along quite nicely. To be honest, this is a livery that is long-overdue. Can't wait!

I like what I see (get it?)

Can't wait to try this out!

Except Orbis uses an MD-10, and the closest thing I have to it is the DC-10. Wanted to maintain as much realism as possible

Let me when you try it any changes, also when you fly it, let me know how it actually flies, haven't had time to try it myself.

Looks like it should IRL. Too bad I don't currently have access to the ground screenshots I took.

As for how it flies, the TR DC-10 has a few quirks to it. It rolls a bit faster than it should, but otherwise, it's pretty steady and landings aren't terribly challenging with it. 

Spoiler

Funny thing: I find the SkySim MD-11 handles somewhat better than the TR DC-10, despite it often being the inverse IRL.

Once again, nice job! You never cease to impress! 😁
