Wing42, makers of the intriguing Blériot XI, aren’t resting on their laurels after the release of such an interesting aircraft. In fact, as we’ve told you before, their are working hard to bring two other legendary airplanes to MSFS: the Lockheed Vega and the Boeing 247D.
While we’ve seen a good share of images from the Vega, when it comes to the 247D there’s hasn’t been much to see. However, Wing42 have now shared some new images that show their work in the external models and textures of this early and pioneer airliner.
Two things come to mind as a first impression: there’s a lot of rivets, and the props are looking stunning, with high quality textures and beautiful detail on the engine.
It’s not much, but it’s an indication that work is moving forward. The Boeing 247D will eventually be released in two stages: first, as a base-pack ”with a state-of-the-art 3d model, top notch and accurate flight dynamics and great sound”, according to Wing42. The ”prop-o-tronic” physics engine that powers the aircraft’s complex system will come later as as an additional purchase.
