Eastbourne Aviation Company Monoplane

Eastbourne Aviation Company Monoplane

  The E.A.C. Monoplane was the first of four designs to be built by the Eastbourne Aviation Company of Eastbourne, Sussex, which was founded by F. B. Fowler, who took his Royal Aero Club Aviator's Certificate No. 175 on 16th January, 1912, flying one of his own flying-school's Bleriots. On 29th October, 1912. Mons. E. L. Gassier, a Swiss pupil of the school, passed the tests for his certificate No. 350 using a Bleriot also.
  An interest in designing led Emile Gassier to join the Company and, assisted by Fowler, he drew up a single-seat tractor monoplane which was built during 1913. The engine chosen was the three-cylinder 35 h.p. Anzani radial, which was mounted on the nose of a rectangular-section fuselage, the deep belly of which tapered to a horizontal knife-edge at the tail, and which was metal-covered as far back as the rear of the cockpit.
  A one-piece elevator was fitted, operating below the cut-out in the rudder, which was strut-braced to the top of the fuselage in the absence of a fixed fin. The parallel-chord wings were mounted just below the upper longerons, and were unusual in that inter-connected ailerons were embodied in place of the warping more commonly employed in monoplanes at that time, and this eliminated the twisting strains inherent in the warping system. The result was a great improvement in flying characteristics. The flying wires were connected to an under-fuselage cabane, relieving the undercarriage of such additional stresses, while the landing loads were taken by the wires supported by the struts in front of the cockpit. Springing of the undercarriage axle was devised by allowing it to move vertically in slots cut in the vee-struts against rubber cord in tension. The Anzani engine drove a Rapid propeller of 7 ft. diameter. The machine was very pleasant to fly; anticipated private orders were prevented by the War.

This is Classicwings EAC Eastbourne Monoplane by Craig Richardson which I merely imported into IL-2 1946.

Some notes which should be pointed out are that some of the gauges are still a work in process. Also that this uses multiple .tga layers for the skin to achieve the see through effect.

Only tested in BAT 3.7

Note some of the gauges currently don't work but they are in the works.

Also note that this uses multiple .tga layers for the skin.

Enjoy

Beautiful wirework & engine detailing  :-*

Forgive me, but who are/is Classicwings ?

They wouldn't happen to have any more vintage gems about the hangar would they ?  ;)

Cheers

Thanks for all your kind words everyone. I'm glad you like this one.

Alfie Noakes Classic Wings is the now defunct site that Craig Richardson posted his works on. He does have others and fortunately I was able to grab some while they were still available. I will be posting more of his works at a later date. ;)

White Phoenix I don't have a working 4.101 version of the game to test a flight model on. Sorry.  :-[

Ah, that's good to know. If there's any WWI, or WWII stuff, I'd have to consider making a single mission for them.


cheers
