Editorial

I downloaded this model of the VASP Vickers to try it out with no real knowledge of the original aircraft, having never even really seen much of it before in the past. However, my initial impressions were that it was a really attractive looking aircraft with plenty of functionality involved.

The FSDS2 model included in here looks great and does a fine job of making sure that this this VASP model looks as authentic as it possibly can. It uses the original features and models from packages b Saverio Maurri, Fraser McKay and Paulo Pizzato. It’s an excellently well defined aircraft that really carries that precision to the skies, making it an exceptionally easy aircraft to get used to.

The Model

The model itself is in scale and looks just as it should. It uses key features such as reflective texture sand full animations to bring the entire image into play and give you something exceptionally well designed. The expertise that has been put in place with this Vickers Viscount goes a long way to making sure that the original model is the closest it can be to reality.

Something else that really stands out here with this recreation of this airliner, though, was just how much the cockpit had to offer. With just about every little feature that you would have expected to have been included there, it was also very meticulous in the way that it operated.

The design and the flair across the cockpit was evident for all to see, adding something fresh and invigorating to the whole thing and making the cockpit a much easier place to get to grips with.

Without a doubt, though, the most impressive feature – for me, anyway – was just how in scale this is with reality. Nothing is really out of place or uncertain and nothing is made to be a generic placeholder or anything similar. This carries the can for the real thing in every way that it possibly can and in turn has created a deeply impressive Viscount mod.

I’ll be using this for many years to come, such is the depth and precision of the layout and the attention to detail of each individual minor feature.

The excellent work of each modder has made sure that this is a very welcoming aircraft to fly, and one I would be quite pleased to recommend to others in future.

I copied in the gauges but that was a mistake. I get error messages that these are from an older version of the Flight Simulator that are no longer supported. Because I copied over files that were already there I now have damage to other planes. Isn't this checked before they send us these planes? Color me bummed out.
