Something I wanted to do for a while now, should soon be finished. It's an S-70A Firehawk used by the LA County Fire to fight forest fires. It's based on the UH-60 Black Hawk with most visible changes being the water tank at the bottom and the higher suspension of the landing gear. I actually wanted to have it finished this weekend, but due to some circumstances that wasn't possible... The helicopter mod is not just cosmetic, but also able to spray water out of the tank. 

What's left to do?

-Finish the water tank with details

-Make the elevated suspension

-Remove frame inside the front door windows

-Some texture work

 

Here's a quick pic and I will post more once it's ingame.

What upcoming projects do you have? Also, is the AS350 on the list as well? Someone has made one, but it's a poor model, a high quality air unit is missing :whistling:

Actually, apparently the new ones are called Airbus H125's. They're replacing the current AS350 helicopters (don't ask me what the difference is, they look virtually the same). I'm guessing it's the an avionics upgrade and a new glass cockpit.

AS350 in high quality... Like this? http://www.gta4-mods.com/vehicles/as350-ecureuil-11-f21825 :P Yea, I can do that. But I can't tell you when. Perhaps some time this month...

 

Firehawk is almost finished :) Water does work and it also has a searchlight which rotates with the camera, so you can aim it where you want.

LAPD and LASD use the AS350, if you do make it will the template be simple? like normal vehicle templates? since I've seen the templates for other helicopters and they had helicopter parts and stuff in the template which made it really hard to make a skin, oh and would the animated spotlight also work on that?

wow, thats so accurate!

well, the tank is not like the one in real life... I mean, I modelled it after the real thing, but when looking closer you'll notice differences. But imo it's okay :D

 

As for the AS-350: Spotlight would probably work. The template thing is difficult though. The problem is that it's mapped to fit all those bolted/detailed parts. It could be unwrapped to a "normal" template, but it'd lose all detail.

I've already got LAPD and CHP, perhaps the LASD skin is already available as FSX repaint.

The spotlight doesn't seem to be moving with the camera it turns on but stays locked facing the up, i've installed it correctly and installed the version without the wipers

EDIT*, nvm it works when you turn the option to use spotlight in rescue mod v, it's so great! thanks for making this mod
