Brand-new previews for Aeroplane Heaven’s Spitfire Mk1a for Microsoft Flight Simulator has been shared. The all-new previews showcase both external and internal modelling and texturing for the historic aircraft.
Looking at the external model, we can see from the previews that there is already an immense amount of detail. Particular attention has clearly been paid by Aeroplane Heaven on the fuselage with wear and tear, whilst we can see paintwork fading away and dirt throughout. There’s also an indication of PBR materials being used with the light reflecting off of the side of the plane.
Stepping inside the cockpit, we see that similar levels of detail are present. The lack of space combined with the number of pilot controls makes for a cramped look and appearance. As these aircraft are old and well-used, there’s plenty of detail in the texturing to give it a look of age. Various placards and labels are also placed within the cockpit in high-resolution making them easy to read from in the cockpit.
In the Facebook post, Aeroplane Heaven said “she is starting to fly like a Spitfire now,” indicating that progress is going well for the plane’s development.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on the development of this historic aircraft and be sure to keep you updated with progress. For now, check out Aeroplane Heaven previews for the DC-3 in Microsoft Flight Simulator to whet your appetite for more aircraft from the team.
