Stinson 108 Voyager. An FSDSv3.5 project compiled with Xtomdl into FSX. It has the usual animations and comes with a red-cream and a blue-white factory style livery. By Paul Clawson. (See also STN108X2.ZIP).
This is a FSDSv3.5 project which converts my FS2004 Voyager into a format where it is compiled by Xtomdl into the FSX format. The is what FSDSv3.5 was conceived to do and in this case worked flawlessly. This project is not backwards compatible with FS2004.
The Stinson 108 was a 4 place single engine plane produced from right after WW2 into the 1950's. It was quite successful because it had good short field performance and could carry a good load for its size. It was the darling of many flying farmers during those years. I never had the chance to ride in one, but saw many during my teenage flying days in Bozeman Montana. A lot of ranchers would fly their 108's into Gallatin Field for maintenance.
I would like to give special thanks to Mike Mire over at the Sim-Outhouse for providing some detail info and photo's that made this a viable project. This is a FSDSv3.5 project. It has the usual animations, DXT3 textures, transparent glass etc. It has nav and landing lights controlled by the "L" key or the appropriate panel switches. The 2D panel and VC are based on actual photo's. I have given it two factory style liveries; a Blue-White and a Red-cream The VC interior is copied from a Stinson brochure. Note on Radio's: I added the typical "todays" radio stack because I cannot find an appropriate vintage radio that is freeware. We flew the radio range because there wasn't anyting else back in those days. I have seen a couple of receivers that would be realistic but they are commercial products.
INSTALLATION: Unzip Stin108X.zip into a temporary folder. Copy the Stinson Voyager folder into the Airplane folder of FSX. Copy the contents of the gauges folder into the Gauges folder of FSX. Copy them "as is", don't open them. Most of the gauges are default, but I included some just in case one is missing from your folder. Close everything and fire up FSX. This plane will show in the Aircraft Selection list as Stinson Voyager Blue and Stinson Voyager Red.
Enjoy! P. Clawson
