Long hard week working on YAP's Set 10 in YAP3 format. Finding shadow spikes, moire in meshes but we are getting there. Putting missions together. The scenery is so good now, it's fun just to watch.

Another groundobject to decorate the airports so they look like a war.



Just a nice shot.



Our new A-26K pre-paint. Nice, though.



RLAF T-28 over Na Khang.



Lima site.



Actually, you are supposed to do this after landing. And some of the landings will be appropriately impossible.



Two more groundobjects.



MPPD's Voodoo needs a repaint. And that shadow spike welded.



Two groundobject Hueys in 101st colors




The mechs at Camp Eagle before the ultimate gunship fight.



Gotta re-pose these guys...or maybe they just don't want to go?





Snakes arriving at the Last Stand.



Covey FAC at the Last Stand.



We have a target date for release that I think we will make. A long explanation of what we are sending out will be sent out soon. It's pretty good. It is a lot of work but we are very proud of where we have taken old WOV.

We have two aircraft on their way for Set 10 missions but they will arrive in time. As you can surmise, we are going places that aren't normally visited in war games to do things that weren't talked about much.

I need a break! But I did have time for one nit-picking thing that has bothered me for years. The napalm cans. Now they look right.

Attention to detail at its best!

I have a question regarding the YAP3 conversion/mod. I have read about mission series 1 and 10 being worked, will the other 8 be modified in due time also?

All of them are going to be reworked in order and replaced; 1) at the website store for any new customers and 2) sent out as replacements for any current owners that want them (or a new customer that buys a YAP2 set still at the store). We aren't charging customers to replace their YAP2 mission sets. We may charge a small fee for YAP3. It is taking a lot of time and money to convert.

We intend to replace several aircraft and bring them up to a higher standard like in Rising Sun. Those will be inducements rather than objects for sale if we can afford it. There are a few new models we with to introduce but they do not fit into any mission set. We don't know how we will deal with that yet.

The process of changing missions sets over should go quickly.

Details: Maybe too much?

One down, one to go...

The magnificent...Dollar Nineteen. (Huh?) Stay with me here.

Have you ever seen this painting? It hangs at CIA Headquarters in Langley, VA. It's "Earthquake's Last Flight". It is about a drop by American mercenaries the day before the French surrender and long after AAA was considered lethal in the valley by everyone else.



I heard the story...several versions...of James McGovern at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu from Air America guys a long time ago. At the time, they had not recovered his remains or acknowledged that he was an American at war.

So with great detail we put together his plane...the C-119. Some pics (not done yet).



All this for one mission? We have done it before in Big Mother and that included a ship from Hinch. Our motto at YAP is "Is anyone here good at math?"



Speed brake.



Zoom in on this pic.



On the way to Dien Bien Phu.



Drop over the camp.



So...540506 Earthquake McGoon. The first Yankee Air Pirate to die in the air war in Southeast Asia.



So...you kinda see where we are going.

The last addition will be ready on time and it will knock your socks off.

I admire this attention to detail. Looking forward to YAP3 thumbsup

Final paint C-119C. It was too clean.

Clamshells will be removed for the mission.







What's missing from this picture? The puddle of oil beneath the engine. We have a tga....no.





Cat Bi being made 1954-ready.





C-47, we know but a C-119 pit for one mission was way over budget.

My Father was in the Utah Air Guard when they had C-97's, C-124's, & KC-97's. From an aerial photo you knew big time where those good ole piston thumpin, smoke pukin, oil drippin recips parked. A good friend of my Dads was a flight engineer on all three, his flight (cu#*t) cap never lasted but a few weeks from oil and grease drippings. And boy did they ever sound GRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOD!

Testing continues. Air America keeping Lima sites supplied and the Marines busy finding haulers in the hills.

I know. I know. Quit screwing around and get done. I did not give you the new terrain yet so I took the opportunity to play around in the Pilatus Porter.











Our Vientiane.



Their Vientiane.






YEE HAW! Full beta descent!





The Alternate.



Okay. I will send it all to you now.

No, 8, really I AM working. These are just some details. Tons of details. Plus, we are pulling out the daytime B-57B missions since the airplane is so ugly so I am looking over replacements.

I always thought that the airport at a capital city at war should look busier than Barstow on a weekday.



Our Thud is in paint.

See, Mike? I am working. I finally painted the C-130. It only took me three years to "age" it.




So I took her out for a spin. With the shadows, Khe Sanh gobbles up memory. Going to have to remove some things.







I love that mission. It's one of the things YAP developed that no "game" has ever done...doing everything that air power does starting with logistics. LAPES at Khe Sanh.

Okay...going to go paint MPPD's Voodoo again.

I promised MPPD, I would put a better paint job on his RF101C. We have work for it. This is 7 hours and it's 85% done. A few errors. Some refinement. It needs the right amount of aging.








Next into the booth, our new Thuds.

New much-needed napalm can by MPPD. BLU-23-B.

And...finally...they tumble.





Paint the Thuds and we are on final.

Does YAP work with SF2 now? And are there any existing mission packs for the Seawolves and/or riverine ops?
