About central gear setting. Lookalizer & visual OK.
Glideslope closed. Airspeed has increased a bit, 151 knots. Nose is up and landing gets OK. I'm cheating a bit using the GPS screen. Anyway it's possible to land in fog...

First visual sight of Copenhagen EKCH runway 22R
The green line just about visible. (148 knots airspeed, 440 feet, -1000 feet/min) I'm too high - but thats no problem since runway is long. Flaps almost full and gear down.
Preparing for a foggy landing at EKCH Copenhagen Kastrup runway 22R (110.9 MHz), runway lengt - enough (about 3300 m) rwy elevation almost sea level.
Just recieved ILS lookalizer. (3000 feet, 250 knots, no vertical speed)
Lookalizer shows runway is to the right. Flying over southernmost Sweden or Øresund sea. No flaps yet.

Pictured here is our 'SealDiver Rapid Deployment Vehicle': a fictional aerospace troop-carrier 'dropship' designed by myself and constructed by my partner Ms Alison Garnham (and myself) in 'Blender 3D' for our intended seven-minute, animated epic wish-fulfilment science-fiction fantasy music video: 'RockFall'.
I exported the model from Blender as a .x file and used 'makemdl_sdk' to produce the .mdl file which I substituted for the original .mdl from FS9s 'lear45' as the most suitable quickly-available 'stock' option. To date only the basic colours have survived the transformation. The brushed-metal texturing and custom insignia (visible in images rendered directly from Blender) have not - We are working to improve this.
From the images obtained so far I like this one best as it is possible to imagine the Seal at its intended size of slightly in excess of four-hundred feet long. When I figure out how to texture it and present it at its intended scale and also obtain a 'Harrier' flight model and figure out how to rotate the Seal's thrust-vectoring extremities to make it realistically hover I will produce better pictures and hopefully a video. We are currently working on similarly processing our gigantic 'Turtle Assault Carrier Vessel' 'mothership'; our 'RayCruiser Public Relations Vehicle' and our two-seat 'Angelfish Recon Patrol Vehicle' skybikes with the intention of demonstrating the various launching and docking manoeuvres to be featured in the intended finished movie. The 'oceanic' theme is consistent through all the vehicle designs intended for 'RockFall'.
Flyable .mdl files and pictures of all the above mentioned vehicles rendered directly from 'Blender' are (or shortly will be) available on request, with the proviso that the designs remain copyright protected and may not be used for commercial gain or incorporated in other creative works, without explicit prior permission and suitable contractual-terms.
Any interested persons with the knowledge and experience of using 'Planemaker' (plus of course the available time and enthusiasm) who might be prepared to help us develop the Seal (and other models) for testing and use in X-Plane is cordially invited to contact me/us at email@example.com at their earliest convenience.
