Wow the detail on this just blows my mind.

There is a small video of the plane and the sound of the DB 603s is incredible. Hopefully BOB will feature such quality sound.

Goodness knows CFS3 was a cruel joke perpetrated upon the flightsim community, but I'd consider buying it again (I gave away my first copy) just for these add-ons.

They even have a Lancaster! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Sorry to admit it, but flying these looks like good fun. I feel so dirty... Ack! I can't wash it off.

Watched several demo movies from this site. Nice add-on planes but that CFS3 terrain gives me the willies. Truly terrible.

Maybe just get the version for FS2004. Already have that. Fly the Lancaster over my MegaScenery Pacific North West add-on. That sure as shoot would look good. Sound good too.

The majority of the Shockwave add-ons are for MS 2004 not the lousy CFS3.

So with MS 2004 they are for exhibition purposes only.

With the many freeware and payware terrain addons such as new textures and 38 mm data FS 9 terrain can be exeptional.

Absolutely. But it ain't cheap.

$50 for FS2004. Another $50 for the MegaScenery PNW add-on, and now another $50 for the Firepower add-on.

For that price it better look good. Ahh, the cost of having fun.

Bump for the very detailed cockpit in the movie. It's worth watching:
