I have a request of you Graphics Geniuses out there. I would really like, and greatly appreciate, a more accurate A-5 Vigilante shape/texture (than what is currently available) if it is at all possible. The new aircraft will be incorporated in the upcoming Linebacker Campaign.

Perhaps something like a TU-26 with MiG-31 fixed wings:

or a MiG-31 with a TU-26 nose (and one vertical stabilizer):

or a MiG-31 with a stretch nose with the engine intake far back (and one vertical stabilizer):

Doesn't work that way... A good start would be using a F-15 shape and modifying it...

Or perhaps an even better starting position would be a MiG-25...

I can easily modify the shape (Make 1 tail, proper position and shape for wings, correctly type of landing gear, fix the radome shap eand size, nose up position when landed, etc... but I need a better skin file... Perhaps modify the A-4 skinset...

What do you think?

Obviously I'm clueless when it comes to graphics shape editting and the options available for modification.

It would be nice if we could cut & paste different aircraft parts together.

I'm currently using a gray painted MiG-31 shape/texture for the A-5.

I noticed someone used the TU-26 to simulate the A-5, but my pickiness won't allow me to overlook the swing wing.

Even though the MiG-31 is closer in size to the A-5, I'll agree with you that an F-15 could work as well. Stretch the cockpit forward and unbubble the canopy, and you've got a Vigilante (with an extra vert. stab.)

Update: The MiG-25 is probably the best choice. I think they made the engine exhaust look ridiculously large (the A-37 as well), but other than that, sure it'll work.

Any chance you could move the nose forward or the engine intakes backward?

Shape editing will remove the extra tail... The F-15 has the right intakes but the wrong rearend... The MiG-25 would probably be a better start point, especially considering the Soviets use the A-5 as the starting point for the Foxbat in the first place.

It would be nice to have it when the new campaign is finished. I have 13 missions done; 12 more to go. I'm predicting at least 6 more weeks to completion.

Let's say by Halloween.

Is it possible that I could also incorporate said shape into my own projects? The FA bug is calling me. It would be nice to use for my Cuba '62 campaign + Game Remod X.

I will get it done for you before then so you can test it and give me feedback on any changes you might like...

Anyone can use it... A proper flight model will have to be constructed for it... I dont do that. To bad Kaptor isnt around... He made the best flight models... :D

That would be great, CAG.

I built a flight model (modified from F-111F flight model); however, no guarantee on its accuracy.

OK... Well I will send you the shapes and skinset... It will include a new shadow shape to match the aircraft shape and new crash shapes as well... And I will modify your PT file to accept the new shapes...

Development is proceeding... I also have more time to work on it now so I expect to have this done by the end of next week..., I think you will truly like it! :D

Sounds great! I'm currently working on mission 19 of 25.

How accurate do you want the destroyed shapes and skins to be? Also do you want a matching shadow shape?

This is your project; you are the artist. I'll gladly accept what you are willing to submit. The look & stability (i.e. no CTDs) of the flying aircraft is the 98% we are all interested in the most.

22 of the 25 missions are completed. I doubt the campaign will be done by Halloween, but likely by mid-November (barring any life events getting in the way).

I'm planning on being on vacation the week of Oct 21st (again, barring any life events getting in the way).
