A few more port-overs, this time vintage Russian Airliners

Recommended Posts

I had promised you some more port-overs, so here we go again. All planes that you see here are former FS9 freeware models that have been upgraded by various talented developers to FSX standard. I have used the Legacy Converter to make them function in MSFS. As always, the biggest problem was the VC. FS9 VC standards are just not acceptable anymore for me. So where needed, I have used VCs from different planes (pay- and freeware) that I have in my virtual hangar.

These planes are now fully functional in MSFS, which means they start properly from the runway, engines and gears work as they should and it is really a joy to fly these beauties in this new environment. I doubt that any of them will be ported over by their original developers. But of course I would love to be wrong.

Unfortunately, I cannot share them with you, as I don’t have permission from their original creators. This is especially valid for the payware VCs that I have used.

 

Nuff said, here comes the first Russian plane, the Ilyushin IL-14, here pictured in the East German Interflug livery, flying over Dresden:

The VC comes from the Just Flight Curtiss C-46 Commando. I like it, because it has the same two side-cutouts for windows, which adds to the illusion

The next plane is the Ilyushin IL-18, a plane similar in size to the DC 4. That is why I added the excellent Flight Replicas VC to it.

A younger plane is the Tupolev Tu-24, which can be seen here near Murmansk

This is the original VC, no functioning gauges. I haven’t made up my mind yet, which one to use instead

A favorite of mine is the Tupolev Tu-154B.

It also carries its original VC, which I will keep

And now comes my all-time favorite, the venerable Tupolev Tu-114. I just love this plane and am super happy to fly her again in MSFS. The sound of her engines is just incredible. Here she is at Moscow Sheremetyevo this afternoon with real weather:

Luckily I can keep her VC too, as most gauges work

And this concludes my little Russian tour. Thanks for viewing.

Superb shots! Brings back fond memories of my youth when some of these still could be seen when on holidays in Yugoslavia. My favourite plane, too is Tu-114 with her incredible looks, ear-deafening sounds and impressive top speed of 870 km/h which equals 540 mph!

Very attractive set of planes, Bernd...!!

And, you start off with INTERFLUG...one of the most colorful and (and interesting too) liveries...🙂...in my eyes...!

(Glad you're taking charge converting these classics...to MSFS...eventhough just for yourself...yes, we would love to be proved wrong, about these appearing natively in MSFS, but, frankly, the waiting game, personally, wears thin for me, somewhat,...these days...🙂...having, of course, done plenty of that in our hobby...oh well...one of the hazards of our passions...🙂...we'll see...)

Lovely stuff Bernd! Interesting to hear about which cockpits you substituted as well. I particularly like those last two aircraft. I wasn't aware of the 154 but she looks interesting, and the cockpit is quite beautiful. And the 114 - well, what can you say? I haven't found myself a working copy yet but I haven't given up permanently - I'll get back to playing with it someday.

Stunning!

I imagine the TU-114 sound is something else!

You are becoming the Jankees of conversions!!

Fascinated that you can swap VC in & out.
