Those of you who are looking to take a spitfire around Microsoft Flight Simulator will soon have the pleasure of doing so. Aeroplane Heaven has been carefully recreating the Spitfire Mk1A for Microsoft Flight Simulator over the past few months and they are now ready to tell people that it’s coming very soon.
On Facebook, Aeroplane Heaven said that the aircraft is now “on final” with the textures now finalised. Both the exterior and interior has been finished with a “restored” look and feel for the aircraft. A range of liveries has been included and a paint kit has been included for those looking to make their own. Whilst texturing has finished, the team wanted to draw attention to the fact that there will also be a working castering tailwheel thanks to some unique coding from the Aeroplane Heaven team. Special attention has been made to the flight model as the plane is described to “hit all the correct numbers” when referring to the flying characteristics.
Aeroplane Heaven also made mention that the cockpit is fully animated including a working night blind which eliminates glare from the lights at night.
The final things which remain include the sound files and also the manual for the aircraft, so it should be with us “shortly”. Whilst we wait, the team shared a range of screenshots highlighting the plane in action directly from the simulator. Stay tuned to FSElite and we’ll keep you updated when we learn more. You can also see a series of additional screenshots on Aeroplane Heaven’s Facebook page.
