Wright Brothers National Memorial v1.0
Dedicated in 1932, the Wright Brothers National Memorial’s tower is situated on top of Kill Devil Hill in North Carolina’s Outer Banks. This hill was once a dune, and the site of many of the Wright brothers’ first glider tests. The monument commemorates the brothers and their achievements in heavier-than-air flight.
Of all of the NC monuments to be missing in flight simulator, I thought this was a particularly relevant one. The whole monument is hand-crafted with custom PBR materials. Spawn in at KFFA airport (first flight airport) and you should easily locate Kill Devil Hill and the memorial a short distance away.
Known issues/shortcomings in 1.0:
– The Wright Brothers’ busts are identical. I’m need more practice at modelling faces before I give those a finer touch
– There is more detailing on the sides of the memorial which are not represented in the current model
– I did add a light at the top of the tower, but have not yet figured out how to create something more like a lighthouse light that should really be there
