1991 Gulf War RAF Tornado GR1 project

Recommended Posts

Hello, fellow simmers/modders!

 

It has been a while since I last touched SF2 (very little flying and no modding at all for over a year now).

 

I've had this project sitting on my HHDD for far too long and I thought sharing and posting it would somehow force myself to finish it once and for all. With Florian's kind assistance and generosity in sharing his reworked Tornado IDS model with me, I have resumed work on my 1991 Operation Granby/Desert Storm RAF Tornado GR1 skin(s).

 

Baseline skinning is almost over. I should begin with the custom artwork for each individual jet (the fun part) soon. Below a few screens of progress so far:

Planned Scope of Work comprises the following:

- Aircraft re-skinning (including as many individual custom markings/artwork as possible)

- External stores (1,500 & 2,250 litre fuel tanks, Sky Shadow jamming pod, BOZ107 flare dispenser, TIALD laser targeting pod, etc.) re-skinning 

- INI tweaks (accurate loadouts, etc.)

- 3D Model tweaks (beyond my current set of skills, but hopefully involving addition of chin-mounted LRMTS & twin-blade dorsal UHF antenna and repositioning of emergency canopy release handle) 

- Compatibility with "Operation Desert Storm" campaign for SF2

 

I can't promise this will ever be released (I would need approval from the respective authors first), but that is indeed the final objective.

 

Feel free to jump in and provide as much constructive criticism as you like.

 

Cheers
