Ryan,

Your artwork is very impressive indeed.  Is there a single place where it is all available?  Has it all been included in a mod?

And perhaps most importantly, why has no one asked you to make a "Spruce Goose"?  It seems your collection is hardly complete without it.

Ian

Took a look at your excellent website. On the US Navy page you asked if one thought the Sea Blue was too dark. Yes, I do. It obscures all the detail, which is so excellent of the other aricraft.

Here's my wishlist for "off the wall" aircraft.

US Army A-17 attack plane.
F3F is US Marine colors.
Fairey Battle in RAAF colors.
US Navy SOC with wheels

I would also like to have a RAAF Lincoln on the wishlist, if that is possible.

Added the Hughes HK-1 Hercules "Spruce Goose" to the USN Page:

Link

I did both a USN color scheme, like this early artwork of an early version of the Hercules; and also the silver scheme that the actual prototype flew in; because remember; the Spruce Goose was NOT funded by the military -- but was funded by the Department of Commerce or Transportation. So it's plausible that it would be civilian operated, even in WWII.

Also, I've uploaded a modified version of the sea blue on the JRM mars.

Link

You can compare the new style and old style Mars on that. Do you think I lightened up the sea blue enough to bring out details, while still keeping it dark enough?

The Spruce Goose cruised at 175-178 MPH for 3,500 miles with a full payload (130,000 lbs).

Unfortunatley, the maximum load you can carry in WITP:AE in a plane is 65,000 lbs.

But, I do have SACs for a lot of stuff:

XR6O-1 Constitution SAC -- several MB!!

And on Page 5 of the SAC they have a range/payload graph flying at an altitude of 1500 feet; which is applicable I think to the SPRUCE GOOSE.

It comes out as:

R6O Constitution:

20,000 lb payload: about 2,200 nm (50% design payload)
40,000 lb payload: about 1,200 nm (design payload)

So if we assume the SPRUCE GOOSE had the same performance gains/degradation as payload increased/decreased as the R6O, then flying at 65,000 lb cargo weight (50% of design); would give the Spruce Goose a range of about 6,400 miles (or 5,560 nautical miles).

So in game the Spruce goose would be:

Max Speed: 220
Cru Speed: 175
Endurance: 2194 (minutes at cruise)
Manouver: 5 (it IS huge after all)
Climb: 500 (fpm)
Max Alt: 12000
Armor: 0
Max Load: 65000
Service Rating of 20-30
Crew: 18

Rng Max: 5600 (ferry range; I would imagine if you deploy a Spruce Goose somewhere, you want to carry not only the crew -- 18 men is about 3,600 lbs alone; but also some spares, mechanics, etc.)

Rng Ext: 5800 or 6000

Rng Normal: 5560

I think that should work for it.

How would that work? Would you essentially replace the RAF Yellow/Blue/Red/White roundel with the RAAF BLUE/WHITE Roundel?

Has anyone done any of these? Especially interested in the last two....

Happy to help! I've also given Ryan permission to host these planes on his site, so they'll be around for a while I hope.

Oh Don, I will have an A-17 for you, but since I didn't have any reference for it here (and there isn't anything available on the interweb), it won't be for a few days. I'll post it as soon as I can complete it.
