BirdDog on floats...?

Excellent choice! Hopefully you guys create a version on floats, too (http://www.ibdaweb.com/about.htm). I'd love to travel around from my home bay, even though it's quite closed to EFKU.

Well, it's really been a pleasure to be able to help you. And of course I'm looking forward to your next masterpiece. :-D

Just one question: The Bird Dog, will it be done for both: FS 9 and FS X?

Cause like many others I will not jump and run to buy FS X only to have an impressing slideshow.

Andrey,

I know SW-lab most likely has a LONGgggggggggg list of aircraft they are wishing to develop..... however, I hope you won't mind me submitting to you a "wish" for an aircraft I've been waiting to be developed for years, and yet has not been done.

Wonderful aircraft that has both civilian and military versions.... used all over the world.... a great all around even bush version.... and a classic. (smile)

I submit for your consideration some day..............

Again.... I know..... so many aircraft.... so little time. But you can't help an old guy from wishing! (smile)

Best of wishes,

Hi Steve,

Although it's not to Sib standards (few planes are, after all), I thought I remembered an FS9 version of the 195 being released as freeware a while back. I think it was Joe Binka that did it. Try an Avsim library search for "shakey_jake.zip" and see what comes up. It wasn't bad, as I recall. Maybe it would tide you over until SibWings can pound one out. :wink:

Hi Bill..... Yep.... you're right. That's what I get for trying to squeeze a forum post in between end of business trip reports. (smile) Shakey Jake is about the best 195 out there..... I'm amazed however that a payware version has never been done. Obviously I would love to see SW-lab do ALL my favorite aircraft... Best craftmanship I've ever seen.... (aircraft that is) Ranks right up there with your work!! (smile)

Now THERE would be a package!!!!!!!!!!!!! SW-lab Cessna 195 and a Bill Womack small private airstrip like Bear Gulch.... MAN-OH-MAN!!!!!!!! Who could ask for anything more!!!

Best wishes,
Steve

I'd be all over that idea, Steve. Seems like a good match to me as well...

Hmmmmmm.... :)

There you go Andrey.... sounds like a perfect match to me too. I'd gladly be willing to work on some polished aluminum textures..... get coffee... tea....deliver meals..... whatever it would take. (smile)

Best wishes,
Steve

It sounds like it will be a great project. I'm sure that it will be amazing, given the past work of the developers. I can hardly wait for the first screenshots to start coming out. Good luck, and happy flying.

Ludo :)
