B-377 HowTo

The latest version of the B-377 project contains some basic instructions for operating the airplane (see the howto.txt file). I'm still trying to fine tune the engine/prop/systems code, but the result is getting close to right.

Boeing B-377 conversion

I've started a conversion project of a Boeing 377 model originally made by Greg Pepper, et. al., and hosted at the great Cal Classic website. The model is brilliant, and I hope I can do it justice. It's far more detailed than a model I would make. Many thanks to Tom Gibson at Cal Classic for permitting the FlightGear/JSBSim conversion and CC re-license.

The exterior is mostly complete. Needed are: cowl flaps, texture-mapping of flaps, wing leading edges. The interior is barely begun, but it's going to look great once the textures are applied.

The model is flyable.
