AW139 repaint - PH-DCG

This is a repaint of one of the two AW139 heli's of the Dutch Caribbean Coast Guard, registration PH-DCG, based at the Hato airport Curacao (Dutch).

It is for the beautiful freeware ICARO/Carlos Palacio AW139 V.2 FSX/P3D model.

NOTES

  • The Dutch AW139 fly with a single winch version, the model is the one with a double winch. And also I'm not sure if they use the search light - I couldn't find a picture with it.
    But because of the beauty of the model with the 'double' nose and the fact that I'm a Dutchman I wanted to try to make a repaint :)!
  • It's a 'clean' version without notable weathering effects. If you know how to make that you have my permission.
  • I tried to add some details and accents (outside: lines, markings, panels; inside: lifejackets, helmets; etc) after studying several pictures.
  • The effects of adding a life jacket is a bit visible on different places of the body, but I can live with that :) It is something I can't change because it is part of the way te models are created
  • The white-grey colour was a bit of a guess because I couldn't retrieve the Federal Standard or RAL numbers for the colour. Hopefully it comes near the real thing :)
  • The patch of Coast Guard Dutch Caribbean on the right arm of the crew is a picure from the website www.policepatchcollection.eu. I tried to contact the owner, but didn't succeed because of domainitems.
  • The Cobham patch is taken with permission and with thanks from the website www.aviatorgear.com

About Egbert Jans

Egbert grew up in an area in the North of The Netherlands where on an daily basis military planes flew at 250 feet over the rooftops: F-104, NF-5, British Jaguars, A-10, Alpha Jet, F-4, F-15, German Transall, F-16 and other. Plastic modelling, making slides and pictures at airbases became a passion as well as aerospace in general. He wanted to become a pilot, but later on in life became a full-time pastor. The love for aerospace never dimmed and flightsimming started with fs9 and later on fsx and p3dv4. He especially likes bush-flying and heli flying - also because of the geographical knowlegde and curiosity. For fs9/fsx he made repaints for the Carenado C206 of the Mission Aviation Fellowship and JAARS, using these also with simflying for charity purposes and offcourse making others enthousiast for the awesome experience of flying!
