FSX US Air Force Convair B-36 Texture Sets

Repaint for Payware ModelJump to: Comments | File Details

Here are four new or updated texture sets for the Virtavia B36 Peacemaker. You need to have the latest version installed that contains the model.C folder (no tip jets) for the B-36B texture set to work. The textures and bump files have been updated since last published for FSX and FS2004 in 2008/9. These add more realistic wrinkling and reworked major fuselage bump maps. Texture.8AF represents a B-36H-5-CF 50-1092 from the 11th Bombardment Wing, Carswell AFB, about 1953. Texture.B36B represents an early B36B-1-CF, 44-92041, of the 7th Bombardment Wing on deployment to Alaska in 1949, for cold weather testing. Texture.15AF represents a B-36D-1-CF, 44-92065 a B-36B brought up to B-36D standards, with the 326th Bomb. Sqdn., 92nd Bomb. Wing based at Spokane in around 1955. Texture.SAC represents a B-36F-5-CF 49-2683, of the 6th Bomb. Wing at Walker AFB in 1956/7, showing the white anti-radiation paint hand-sprayed on the underside of the remaining B-36's late in their service life. By Dave Quincey.

description=AlphaSim 2007\n\nConvair B-36H Peacemaker\n\nConvair's B-36 Peacemaker was called a 'MegaBomber' when it was first introduced into service on August 28, 1947. An enormous aircraft, it was as complex as it was large. Its 28-cylinder R-4360 engines were the very height of piston technology, and with the addition of the jet pods to later marques to assist with takeoff and top speed, the aircraft became even more complicated. With its 19-foot propellers and six engines, it produced an Earth-shaking drone that could be felt from 40,000 feet. Produced in a wide variety of variants, including unarmed crew trainers, strategic bombers, and reconnaissance bombers, the plane was manufactured for seven years. The last B-36 was delivered on August 18, 1954, and the type was retired altogether on February 12, 1959. It was the end of an era.
