RAF ScamptonAnother scenery package for FSX and FS2004 has been released from scenery developer Team SDB.  They have released their rendition of the RAF Scampton airfield in the United Kingdom.  Most of their scenery packages are based around airfields in the UK, with this supposedly one of the most famous.  The scenery includes hangars, buildings and scenery of the general area around the airfield.

Probably the most famous of all RAF airfields, former 1943 home to 617 Squadron, The Dambusters and now home to the RAF Aerobatic Team, The Red Arrows. Scampton is recreated by Team SDB using photoreal textures throughout taken on a visit to the base. All the buildings and scenery objects are unique and were created for Scampton and placed using information supplied by the RAFAT Adjutant.

On the east side of the base are 4 C type hangars with the technical site behind. All the main buildings on the tech site are modeled including the Airmen's Mess where Operation Chastise (the dams raid) was planned. On the airside of No.2 Hangar can be found the well tended grave of Wing Commander Guy Gibson's black Labrador dog. Further west between the hangars and the runway are the tower, fire station and the old Electrical Section. To the south are the old Operations Section and animated radar antenna.

The scenery utilizes the MAIW BAe Hawk by Nick Black using textures by Frank Safranek. Full instructions for downloading and installing the Hawk are included.

The AI Hawker Hunter (included) at Hawker Hunter Aviation across the field is by Daniel Dunn of Firebug Studios.

Hello members of the SDB Team. I don't know if I'm right at this contact. My question an please: I like to become contact to Henk Schuitemaker via Email; because I can'nt find his Email adress in the internet anywhere. I've made some repaints of aircrafts and published them in the internet forums yet. Specifically the F-104 Starfighter of CS Simulation is very interesting for me. I found an repaint of the Netherland TF-104 made by Henk Schuitemaker, with entremly detailed markings. Because the Netherland TF-104 had the same camouflage pattern as well as the German Air Force F-104 / TF-104 I would ask Henk if I could use his textures for make Repaints of German F-104 / TF-104 Starfighters. About your answer, I would be very glad. Best regards Hans-Juergen Kasper.
