T-45C Goshawk for FSX Acceleration

Boeing T-45C Goshawk for FSX:Acceleration (1080p trial render)

Boeing T-45C Goshawk for FSX:Acceleration (1080p trial render)

Above are two renderings of the main project I'm working on in these days. It is a Boeing T-45C Goshawk model for Flight Simulator X Acceleration. The T-45C is a carrier capable version of the British Aerospace Hawk and it is currently employed by the U.S.Navy as jet trainer for strike fighter pilot candidates.

The main features of this project will be:

- FSX-compliant external model, including bloom, self shadowing and bump maps

- Full virtual cockpit, with 3D gauges, MFD and HUD. Due to several constraints the cockpit will only be partially functional. HUD and MFD will be aliased from FSX:Acceleration F/A-18

- Full FSX:Acceleration carrier CATOBAR compatibility

Actual screenshots and a preview of the cockpit will follow soon. I may need beta-test pilots in the near future, so, if you're interested to help, keep visiting this blog.
For those who may be interested, the model has 80.000 polygons. The images above took 40 minutes to render on a Athlon 64X2 6400, 8800GT, 4Gb RAM machine.
