The Immortal DHC-2 Beaver


Recommended Posts

Really impressed too .. such fast progress with a such beautiful model ... Speechless.

Just to be " annoying ", again about the prop. I like you " corrected " the white stripes.

But I have the impression the pitch angle is really flat. I know on that prop there aren't as pitch as a BF 109 but it's almost flat isn't it ?

Except those " nothing details " I don"t see any bad point, will definitely be a masterpiece ! And the fact that I've saw the " Jim the pilot " videos make me even more excited about !

I am glad you all like it! :)

After looking at hundreds of pictures on airlinersnet, I decided for this livery, because I like earth like colors. The other versions will feature their own liveries, but this one was one of my favorites.

With respect to the prop twist, I will have another look. However,the 3d model is not really flat . If somebody has some info about prop twist for a HC-B3 Hartzell prop, I am happy to use it.

Texturing is done in photoshop. The key is having a good and efficient uv unwrap of the 3d mesh. If you are interested in it, here is a good starting point to understand the basics and more advanced things.



Progress is nice so far, but like I said before, there will be times when there is not much progress to show. I will report about it, but showing will not be easy. Unless you would be interested in software design pictures and screenshots of my source code editor ;)

Nice picture of the Beaver near Richardson Bay! Colors look very intense.

Thought that you might like to see another angle...

Guess it's about time to start requesting liveries eh?

No pressure or anything but I decided I'd put up a few links of nice DHC-2's.

Here is SeaAir's C-GOBC, both in her current and former liveries:



Here is Pacific Coastal Airways' Mk.1 C-FMAZ:


Pacific Coastal's C-FDSG:


Another PASCO Mk.1 C-FUVQ:


Now a privately owned Beaver with a fitting registration:


Another privately owned Beaver C-FFHC, supposedly one of the oldest still flying:


Also, not to forget NW Seaplanes

Wheels Beaver N67689:


And on floats N90YC:


Those are some of my long time favorites.

Adventures of Tintin, a Beaver at 0:16 ???? I win a Beaver free copy ... :)


Nope, that's not a Beaver, but as far as I can tell it is also not a real plane...

If anything it looks more like a Max Holste Broussard, but even that is not right because of the singe vertical stabilizer.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the livery request. However, even they look nice and I had a look at them myself before, I want to keep the livery authentic. That means, I will use real world liveries which fit to my aircraft setup of the modernized Beaver. Beavers with a three blade prop, same spinner type and two passenger windows behind the passenger door will fit and I more or less made my selection already.

However, you are getting a neutral color paint kit for the SoulMade Simulations Beaver and you can create any livery you like for yourself and others.

Like eaglewing said, this is not really a Beaver. I looks pretty much different in the details. However, I could imagine that they were inspired by the Beaver shape and created a cartoon model for it.

So you have to try a little harder to win that free Beaver copy. :)

Watch out when the Beaver is close to release, though. There WILL be the chance to win 5 free Beaver copies. How? That is something I will talk about when the time has come. ;)

I want to give you a sneak peek of the interior today, before the leather seats move in.

About 8 weeks ago I started this thread and it already has around 9,400 views. Wow, I was never expecting such an interest in the Beaver. Well, for me it is an awesome and gorgeous aircraft, but I would have never thought that so many of you seem to like it as well.

That is really motivating and I would like to thank you for your interest so far!

Hope you enjoy the interior shots.
