Project Opensky has recently released model updates for their Boeing 737-700 and 737-800 models.  These models have a sweet looking Virtual cockpit that looks stunning. Unfortunately, their download server is busy, so I will share more information when I get a chance to load it in FSX and put it through its paces!

In the meantime, you can check out the announcement > here < . (see FreeSky Project link above)

Update 6/27/08 – Servers are still busy, but I managed to download the 737-700 model.  After loading it in FSX, all I have to say is that it rocks.  The FSX engine and enhancements only compliment this model.  My one concern is that the frame rates take a hit with this model.  One thing I really like is the wing shadow on the fuselage.

I still have not had chance to load the virtual cockpit model.  From the screenshots in POSKY’s forum, it is certainly something to look forward to.

One other note, when installing the FS2004 version in FSX, make sure you change the alias in both the sound.cfg and panel.cfg to the 737_800 defualt.  Otherwise, the model will not show in FSX.
