World War 2 RAF Tilstock Version 0.62

Rebuilt under Update 6 and SDK 14.1.  I have also uploaded a fresh version of the project folder wihich also has all the FreeCAD and Blender 3D models used so you can have a go at doing your own version or use the models in your own Airport.

World War 2 RAF Tilstock Version 0.5

Added a perimeter fence which is a total of over 3 kilometres long in multiple sections.
Added a control tower built in blender using Archipac to make nice looking doors and windows.
Greatly improved the Blender made hangars.
Slightly improved the models of the Lancaster Bombers.


Further improvements are planned based on the extensive historical information available in Whitchurch Shropshire from the local Heritage centre once restrictions are lifted and access becomes easier.  This next stage is unlikely to yield a further update before 2022.

ZIp file of project folder included which includes all Blender Models (Hangars and Fences etc.) and the FreeCad model for the Hangar which was exported to Blender in multiple STL  files..

The Blender 3D fence models are designed to allow a string of fence sections, of any length (made from a set of parts using an array modifier), to be positioned on uneven ground ; however for this version I took the easy way out of leveling the ground using terraforming so that the whole airport is level.   If anyone wants the procedure for using the fence models which involves exporting from blender to SDK versions with markers to aid positioning and then overwriting with versions without markers, then please message me..

The Hangar models were also improved, by adding foundations to make them sit better on uneven ground and using a completly different method to make the roof windows inspired by the way the Archipac add on for Blender makes openings and windows.

In the Blender Model each of the 12 sliding doors is a separate moveable item so its quite easy to set the doors in any position.

About World War 2 RAF Airfields

There was an RAF airport here in World War two with three runways that are still discernible on the satellite view.  

I am working to gradually add more and more of the original WW2 Airport and local scenary.

History:

9,000 miles Of Concrete; a report on the hundreds and hundreds of WW2 Airfilelds Historic England Report

thak you v6 ok

I have dropped parachutists here many times, please be sure to show the runway as being very rough and very short, the local farmer uses most of the runway for storage of hay or stuff , i look forward to seeing how you get on
