Product Description:

The 1935 Sportwing was an improved version of Kinner’s 1932 Sportster model. Jointly designed by Max B. Harlow and Robert Porter, the Sportwing features a two-place open cockpit with side-by-side seating, a tufted leather interior, and doors that swing open much like roadsters of the period. The chrome door handles look like they came off an Auburn Speedster. The instrument panel sports a black crinkle finish with burnished aluminum control levers, in the style of the time.

  • Although all-metal aircraft were becoming common as the Golden Age progressed, this Sportwing is not all aluminum. It was not built for speed records or racing, so the fuselage, made of welded chrome-moly steel tubing,  and the wings, composed of solid spruce spars with spruce and plywood trusses were fabric-covered, the engine cowling and landing gear fairings made of metal. The fabric covered tail group was built up of welded steel tubing, elevators equipped with adjustable trim tabs. The streamlined dural- aluminum gear fairings and wheel pants, plus a louvered radial engine cowling, give it a Buck Rogers futuristic appearance.  Another feature reminiscent of 1930s’ automobiles is the sharply slanted, split windscreen, with stylishly curved side window panels, mounted in a brushed aluminum frame. Most also sported a large tight fitting NACA-type engine faring with streamlined “blisters” for cylinder head clearance which was eliminated on the last of the series S/N 148 NC 14927 (shown above).  A wooden propellor, Eclipse air operated engine starter, battery, navigation lights, a compass, dual control stick-type controls and throttles, radio shielding, parking brake, wheel brakes, chrome plated exhaust collector, fire extinguisher, two baggage compartments, adjustable seat, first aid kit, and tool kit were standard equipment.  A metal propellor, radio, and coupe-type enclosure were optional.  Our representation of this iconic aircraft is fully animated with tool tips active in the VC cockpit for all animated parts.   It is fully compatible and coded   with Microsoft Flight Simulator native 'Model Behaviors' animations and built to MSFS operational specifications to prevent issues with future simulator upgrades.

I had at first some problems with the installer, but that was solved quickly.
I had this plane in FSX and so, it is some kind of nostalgia. To be honest it looks and sounds as I was used in FSX and that is fine with me. I find the cockpit good looking and the knobs and levers are clickable. The exterior is good. When taxiing I did not have any problems, as long as you keep minimum speed and brake before turning a corner. When taking off and landing, the plane keeps nicely in a straight line. This plane is a joy to fly.

The Sportwing has some great potential, but is held back by textures and modelling as antique as the aircraft being modeled, among other shortcomings. I commend Golden Age Simulations for all of the awesome added details (they included views you can use to remove chocks and tiedowns, as well as opening and closing doors, wing storage, removable covers. There are no sounds other than the engine which feels thin and somewhat quiet. The exterior model is okay, but things like the wing struts are modeled very poorly. They connection points with the wings don't exist, the PVC looking tubes just cut directly through the wing model. The interior is unfortunately even worse. It's impossible to look past the dated textures and low-poly modeling. Most surfaces are fully flat, surfaces that have textures that clearly should be 3D (the quilted leather interior for instance.)

In terms of lighting, the panel light is awful. It's a blindingly bright red that you can see in full daylight that makes the poorly modeled panel stand out in a bad way. There are no instrument lights (to be fair, I'm not sure if the Sportwing had any) but the panel light is in desperate need of tweaking.

The flight model is where the stars in this review come from. While ground handling is a struggle even more than other tail draggers I've flown in MSFS, once in the air the Sportwing feels great. In a stall, the aircraft experienced buffeting (no sound, but shaking) followed by a sudden drop of the left wing. I have no real complaints about how the plane flies which says a lot about a model.

Very reasonable model and flies well. There is room for making it better but it's acceptable.
NEXTGEN SIMULATIONS - BANDEIRANTE MSFS
Jorge
En sentido general es un avión disfrutable y fácil de volar debido a que el avión real no es muy complicado. Pero en cuanto a la oferta de NEXTGEN considero un precio demasiado elevado en comparación con el producto que ofrecen. Si mejoran las texturas de la cabina y el sonido el producto sería mucho más apreciado y seguramente tendrian más compradores y admiradores.

Update: Less than 24 hrs. after my review the developer reached out to me with a fix for the jetway issue, I can now say this is a great scenery, for many years this was my go to airport when I was living in New England and this scenery captures everything I remember of the airport. Wel-
l worth the money and I look forward to seeing what Viewpoint Tech. comes out with next.
