2 Fronson Hangars ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
This model was created to be placed in FSX as airport scenery using Airport Design Editor. I created it for my own use when i was re-creating RNAS HMS Nuthatch which was a Naval Airstation near Anthorn on the Solway Coast in Cumberland (now Cumbria), United Kingdom. History of RNAS HMS Nuthatch... Work began on building an airfield at Anthorn for the Fleet Air Arm in late 1943, with Royal Naval Air Station Anthorn, or HMS Nuthatch opening on 7 September 1944, with three tarmac runways. It was the base of No. 1 Aircraft Receipt and Despatch Unit (No. 1 ARDU), which had the job of receiving aircraft fresh from manufacturers, modifying them to Service standards and despatching them to operational squadrons, with the unit specialising in the Vought F4U Corsair. No. 1 ARDU continued to operate from Anthorn following the end of the Second World War, while a number of Fleet Air Arm Squadrons were also based at the airfield in the immediate post war years. The airbase shut down in March 1958. The Airfield is now the site of a VLF/LF transmitter used for transmitting orders to Submarines, it is also home to three atomic clocks for transmitting Britains time signal transmissions. None of the Hangars (11 Pentad and 22 Fromson) survive at the site but their concrete standings are still visable. Depicted here are representations of the Fromson type hangers created from dimensions in a 1947 survey. I created the model using Google Sketchup and converted it for use in FSX using Model ConverterX. This is my 1st attempt at scenery creation and is therefore pretty basic. There are no known issues and it works fine in FSX.
