We now have Phoenix install files; archived models, paint schemes and sounds; plus a tutorial.
Not sure how this will end, but it's a fun journey! rick

Hey guys,
Any of you computer geniuses build me a Pilatus Porter PC-6.....1600-1800mm W/S ? The other one I would like is the Taft Dornier Do-27 w/1600mm w/s. For use with Phoenix 5 or RF-7.5. At 71, my computer comprehension level is just adequate enough to get by. Attached are links. Thanks.....

Denny

F7F Tigercat


This model was my motivation for learning how to create Phoenix models.
I grew up a Navy brat, and this has always been one of my favorite aircraft, so I just had to have one in Phoenix.

After several iterations, the final version appears in post #2309.
