Request: Model for a 150 gal Skyraider droptank

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

 

I've been trying to find a 150 gal droptank for the skyraiders, and couldn't find anything in the weps pack that seemed to work. I was hoping maybe and experienced modeler might be able to throw one together...

If it can be done, I'd really appreciate it. If not, no big deal.

 

Thanks!

Yes, of course it can be done! It is on my list of things to do after I finish with these little do-dads for the Phantom. Give me a few days. Need to dig up dimensions though, probably from the reference I have should not de difficult.

Malibu,

 

Try the OV-10 150 gal. tank. I'm using it on the A-4 and the A-1.

 

Thanks! Those do work pretty well.

 

I'm looking forward to what mppd comes up with... :good:

LoadLimit=1020.6

AllowedWeaponClass=FT

AttachmentType=NATO,USN,USAF

PylonDragArea=0.03

FuelTankName=Tank_OV-10

 

[RightWingStationFuel]

SystemType=WEAPON_STATION

StationID=17

StationGroupID=4

StationType=EXTERNAL

AttachmentPosition=2.90,0.08,-0.770

Yeah, as soon as I'd posted that question I realized what I had to do and tried to edit it before anyone caught on to my incompetency... :biggrin:

 

Funny, I found that the attachment position that gave me the right look was -0.83, very different from 0.08. Are you using the free A-1H or the Razbam models?

 

*edit* - I realized that there are 3 or 4 different attachment position variations depending on which of the Razbam skyraiders you're using, hence the different values. Got em all squared away!
