Three versions of Blackburn Beverly, from 1950 to 1968:
- Blackburn B-101 C1
- Blackburn Beverly RAE
- Blackburn Beverly RAF-ME

Next one is CL-100-x Hercules

I prefer to continue with Boeing 747-400. It's more or less as big as Antonov AN-225. I'll make 9 versions with different color schemes (Qantas, CargoLux, JAL, KLM, AirFrance, CathayPacific, China Airlines, Asiana, Singapore Airlines and British Airways)


I'm still searching a blueprint of 747-400 LFC a.k.a Dreamlifter to include it too.

Wow..that would be very much appreciated.. :D I'm currently depicting the global air transport industry (see pak64 discussion) using the "The World" map I downloaded from maps.simutrans.
Would that be for passenger transport?

Could I request Singapore Airlines and/or British Airways to be added in the livery?

Well, this is a freight planes pak but I guess I might do an exception. After all, the hardest part (modeling the plane in Blender) is done, therefore add two new color schemes won't represent much more work.. :)

Oh thanks very much.. :D

Hmm..its up to you if you'd like to make it freight or passenger..though I would be much delighted if some (or maybe all) would be the latter, or maybe both freight and passenger. :)

I think you'll have to wait until passengers plane pak for that... ;)

Although I've not created the graphics yet, I'll surely upload them to graphics.simutrans.com (dat files too) In case you want to create passangers versions, you only have to get png and dat file, change freight and payload atributes and compile it to create the pak file, but please keep the copyright.

BTW, I forgot to mention that all png files of planes from this pak are available at graphics.simutrans.com, at User galleries >> vilvoh >> freight planes gallery (link)....Feel free to use them but please keep the copyright.

You just need a text editor to modify the dat file (MS Notepad, WordPad, Vim, etc..) but you don't need to edit the png, only the dat.

Wow thanks!.. :D..They do look great.
I think I'll just be waiting for the pax plane pak because even if i'll configure the dat file for them to carry passengers, i'll miss the plane windows, esp. during the night.

I was thinking that as this is a freight oriented pak, in addition to vehicles, we would have to include some buildings to complet it...any ideas or suggestions about freight terminals and airports? a sample image, just to inspire... :)

Ok, I got it..link

P.S: I know that's not a DC-10, it's a Boeing MDF-11 but both are quite similar (triple engine) so I guess the color scheme doesn't change.

they have also
747 Jets: http://www.pbase.com/toptag/image/21513706
737: http://picasaweb.google.com/safetygallerie/SAFETYCARDSFORTRADEANDSELL#5130160935842560530
and since 1999 the MD11 - according to one website its the successor of the DC10, main difference are the winglets ... the color scheme like shown on your picture is quite constant over the last 20+ years.

on the quick way don't know where to find the other introduction dates ... sorry.

d'oh!! I thought I've included Lufthansa Cargo in the 747-400 pak..... :-[

Don't worry about service dates, because wikipedia and airliners.net have a lot of info about that issue (chronology and fact sheets)

Well, we continue with Boeing 377 StratoCruiser, a civilian version of C-97 Stratofreighter from US army that was the base design for guppy and super guppy airplane series. The list of color schemes is the following: PanAm, Northwest, SAS, Dragon wings, BOAC and United AirLines.

Boeing 377 StratoCruiser ready to download. Finally, I've done 5 color schemes (Boac, United, SAS, Panam and United) Enjoy.. :)

Btw, a few comments ago I mentioned the possiblity of expanding the pak with extension buildings for airports, and well, that's what I've been doing. I present you the new GBi Air Cargo Terminal. I've to solve some issues because as you can see it has two floors over the ground level and one under it, but It's about 60%.

Thanks.. ;D. As It seems you like them, here you have two more. They're bigger than the previous ones (3x3) I'll probably make another big one (4x4) related with Cathay Pacific HK Air Cargo Terminal, and with that one we can consider the extension building pak is finished.

P.S: They look strange but it's due to the image quality. After all, they are just previews, aren't they?
