Shigeru Tanaka has just released his latest model designed for FS2004. Sky Baby Gold, an original homebuilt model based on Sky Baby the world's smallest homebuilt staggered wing biplane in USA in 1952 around the middle of the past century of flight, with fuselage length 2.997m, wing span 2.814m, and max speed 298km/h powered by a Continental C-85 modified 112-hp engine. An American aircraft homebuilder Raymond Stits devised various ideas to make a man-carrying airplane as compact as possible. After spending 13 months of efforts, Stits saw the first flight of his Sky Baby piloted by Bob Starr in April 1952. Raymond donated this plane to the National Air and Space Museum in 1972. The pretty little baby is exhibited at the Experimental Aviation Association's Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Highly detailed model featuring smooth animations of control surfaces, rolling wheels with shock absorbing motion and steering tail wheel. Pilot figure finely made down to fingers with head turning in sync with left/right turns. Effective use of reflective textures for streaming dynamic shine of Midas gold and chrome silver. Reflective outside glass and inside glass with subtle cloudiness and distortion for airtight glass closed ambience. Original 2D panel and omnidirectional 3D dynamic virtual cockpit with crisply working gauges, throttle rod, steering rod, and rudder pedals, in gorgeous interior amenities. Delightful flight dynamics for both comfortable sky walk at moderate speed and powerful aerobatic adventure at full throttle with smoke trail effects. Crisp stereo sound package by Aaron Swindle also included through friendly consent. Enjoy!
