Hi there, the A330 project is still progressing of course, I did see someone post a reply on the youtube video about this project being stopped, it has never been stopped at any stage - it has been slow but we will get there!
About gauges, maybe send one of the members a private message with a link or screenshot of your work etc so they can have a look

Well folks - as promised here's the A340-300 plus CFM engines.

Please note that these are still work in progress so there are adjustments - e.g. the bottom of pylon is white etc.

These engines and pylons have taken a while but I am quite pleased with the result. I am hoping to move on to other bits and pieces - there are still plenty of things to do! (i.e. flap track canoes, wingroot, tail, touch up on the wings + winglets, other misc textures)

The inevitable question will come up - how much longer to go... judging by textures maybe a few months (before we get working on airline liveries), although it is still difficult to say - can't speak about the rest e.g. fde, vc etc.
about what liveries will be covered - mostly big airlines and the ones you've seen so far, if the liveries you are looking for is not covered by us - there are plenty of capable painters out there willing to do liveries (as can be seen with the TDS 787 project)

Other questions:
- A340-200 model? - yes there is a model already made but no textures yet
- A340-500/600 model? - no there is none made yet (I think we've got a lot on our plate at this stage)

loving it! will it have a working vc with VASfMC in fsx? P.S can you use some default airbus systems (like fuel and hydraulic) to make it have for flyability?

Looks lovely.

To whom it may concern, I am dying to slap SAS on this!

Also if it's possible, could we please see some screenshots of the lighting mask? I'm a little curious on how it looks.

You should go back and look at the screenshots because they answer your question.

here's more update: the flap track fairings are now sorted - as you may be aware in the previous preview shots we had used a temporary texture and the flap track canoe fairings were too dark before..
We will be adding details to the wingroot next...

Hi there,

Project Airbus was founded by Thomas Ruth and Trevor Slack in 2001. Other members included Michel Theriault, Nicholas Wu, Thomas Kwong and Peter Binamira.
If I remember correctly (when I first discovered the community and became active in 2000) Project Airbus developed the A320 and also the A300-600. Thomas also ventured into other models like the An225, An124, TU144 and also later developed his A330/340s and a DC10 VC - these work were released not under this group but under his own name.
As people moved on gradually and new members came into the group, PA released the A320 and later the A319/A321 as well as the A380. This A330 and A340 is made by Nick Loh.

What? I'm just asking... I know, everyone hates these questions, and maybe hates me, but I haven't seen anything new of the VC for months.

I think after this I will be banned from the forums...
