DHC-3 Otter

In the early beginning known as King Beaver, as the development was meant to be a larger version of already famous DHC-2 Beaver. The Otter is a large single engine utility aircraft with excellent STOL qualities.

This model is an extensive rework of the old v566 by Tim Hill and myself.


So far I’m offering the following files:

- The standard factory Otter with the Pratt & Whitney R-1340 600 HP radial.

- A conversion known as ‘Polish Otter’, now powered by a PZL Kalisz radial of 1000 HP (in fact the same engine as the Shvetsov ASh-62IR of the Antonov An-2).


Plane packages include alternative acf files for the landplane and floatplane version (standard wheels and amphibious floats).

The Otter floatplane ‘classic’ comes with the original black panel (dash) of the early production Otters.

DHC-6 Twin Otter

One of my favorites. I've always kept at least one up and running for my own use since early in v470.

As the name suggests it was at first conceived as a twin-engined replacement for the venerable DHC-3 Otter.

The Twin Otter is a 19-seat (passengers) STOL utility aircraft, mostly used for regional passenger and cargo transport, medevac flights or whatever else you can think of. The reliability of its two P&W Canada turboprops and its superb STOL qualities have it operating in the most remote areas; from Nunavut to Antarctica and from Iceland to Papua Niugini.

Credits:

A big thank you to Syd Adams for allowing us to use the original 3D files from his work for FlightGear.

Also thank you to G.P. Lyons ‘gplv3’ for the initial conversion of these files for use in X-Plane and his further enhancement and additions to the 3D objects.

Additional thanks go to Leen de Jager (flybike), AFNavarro (Antonio) and Bob 439 (Bob Maheu) for their great improvements to the normals and textures.


The 3Dv2.5 model Minor changes only: corrected animation for front gear, ‘easy skis’ the (cosmetic only) retractable skis incorporated to landplane version (show/hide by keystroke).

Comes as v.970 & v10.51 (xp11 capable).

Paint files remain unchanged - the v2.3 still fit this new version.


New: The ‘Antarctic Edition’ a version with skis-only gear (DHC-6-300 short nose only).


The 2Dv3.0 revision (PlaneMaker only) Practically no changes at all...

But now also adapted for use as a separate ’Light’ version: the lightweight alternative for less capable PC’s, having only a 2D-cockpit and minimal use of 3D objects (smaller external parts).

Comes as v.970 & v10.51 (xp11 capable).

See the separate 2D section below.


The files

There are separate downloads for v970 (for use with v970 up to v1050) and for v1051 (for use with v1051 and xp11 capable)

There are 3 base models, ‘ready to fly’: a DHC-6-300 LN (long nose) on standard wheels, a DHC-6-300 SN (short nose) on amphibious floats and a DHC-6-100 on tundra tires.

For a series 200 and subtypes (wheels, floats etc.) for all 3 versions you can download the ‘alternative acf files’ to edit/expand the base package.


The ‘Generic liveries’ packs are still pretty much the same, though I made a few minor corrections here and there. If you did find discrepancies or missing textures before, please feel free to download again.


>Warning! the earlier (3D v2.2) liveries are NOT 100% compatible with the new objects; sorry!

The lightweight alternative for less capable PC’s, having only a 2D-cockpit and minimal use of 3D objects (smaller external parts)... but including photo based 360º interior views.

Comes as v.970 & v10.51 (xp11 capable).


DHC-6-300 LN - Long Nose landplane.

Twin Otter 3D - Air Seychelles livery pack    (feb. 2020)

The Air Seychelles collection

Air Seychelles flew/flies only with the -300 and nowadays the -400 version.

The package contains the following liveries:

Livery year - registration - name

1996 S7-AAT Isle of Fregate

2007 S7-AAR Isle of Farquhar

2012 S7-AAF Isle of Praslin

2013 S7-AAJ Isle of Desroches

2014 S7-CUR Isle of Curieuse

2016 S7-DNS Isle of Denis


These liveries are meant for use with only the the long nose model(s) of my Twin Otter. They fit the 3D v2.3 or newer files and won’t look good on earlier versions of GP’s 3D model revision.
