Chock,

Whose model is that C-54 ?  And which simulator is it for ?

Would love to know.  My father flew C-54's during the war in the CBI theater.

Thanx !

That's the FSX/P3D Flight Replicas one (but it is in MSFS here). I repainted in that guise for the Save the Skymaster people who are currently restoring the real thing in the UK. The livery is what the real aeroplane is painted in, but that wasn't its original livery, it was painted up like that for a film about the Berlin Airlift which was never completed, then the plane was left abandoned for a long time before being donated to the team who are attempting to restore it. Originally the real aeroplane was a 'hospital' plane which was used to transport wounded. I'll be making a video about this aeroplane and another DC-4 variant for my youtube channel soon.

As noted, the flight sim model is this one. It's for FSX and P3D, but as you can see, it can be ported over to MSFS easily enough and it flies well in that sim too and everything appears to work okay although the cockpit is not 'clickable' when in MSFS, so you have to use keyboard shortcuts for most things, but you can probably make out that I've got the engine cowling flaps open for the climb out power, which does show that it's not really a big deal to have to assign a keyboard shortcut to stuff like that in MSFS.

It still looks pretty good in P3D or FSX, but obviously the lighting is better in MSFS, here it is in P3D V5. This is a good demonstration of how much better MSFS can look; the one you see below in P3D, is exactly the same plane with exactly the same textures as the one above in MSFS:

This paint job is available to download from the library at flightsim.com here. I tried to upload it to Avsim's library, but it wouldn't recognise the zip file, whereas it went straight up to the other site.
