Re: Harvard D-FRCP - Restoration

Of course the true story is that this is a repaint that depicts the Harvard D-FRCP, which is already included in the A2A product, but as the aircraft appears today. The way in which the aircraft is depicted in the A2A product is how the aircraft looked up until 2010, when it was sent to MeierMotors ...

Harvard D-FRCP - Restoration

As you may or may not recall, the last time I flew this aircraft I had the engine quit on takeoff (flight sim-related pilot goof/mistake), and had to put it in a field at the end of the runway... http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y282/Bomber_12th/Bomber_12th001/harv_2_zpsepq6xk7d.jpg~original http://...

Re: Hand cranking a T-6....

Even the Merlin-engined P-51 Mustangs could be started that way - up until mid P-51D-15-NA production, a starter crank was provided/mounted in the right/starboard landing gear wheel well on P-51B/C/D Mustangs, with the starter crank lug positioned on the starboard-side cowl (usually covered-over wit...

Re: Duxford Visit

There have been running threads at the Key Publishing forum for several years now (archived/renewed with every new year), with a few photographers local to Duxford documenting each day the daily warbird activity and general happenings at the field. Hardly a day goes by that I don't check that thread...

Re: Duxford Visit

With regard to the Buchon, John Young, who did all of the AI traffic in the original Duxford scenery release, has made more AI aircraft over time, and he has included AI traffic files for use with the Duxford scenery in a few of those follow-up AI aircraft releases. Here is a list of all of the ACG ...

Later I went up again for some formation practice with a couple Duxford residents, G-BUKY (a repaint by Douglas Falshaw "HalfSaw"), and G-BTXI (repaint by Steve Landau "bladerunner900"). http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y282/Bomber_12th/Bomber_12th001/GTDJN_FORM_2_zpsy3gojlmj.jpg~original http://i7....

Duxford Visit

A real-life resident of Halfpenny Green, and a common visitor to Duxford, I thought I would pay a visit to Duxford with the virtual G-TDJN as well, for a bit of flying. The screenshots feature a repaint that I did (available here and elsewhere), depicting the award-winning Midwest Aero restored AT-6...

Re: Finished Repaints

Yes, a lot of Texans were provided to Russia under the lend-lease program (North American also supplied a good number of B-25's to Russia, but never any Mustangs (despite an edited publicity shot showing a P-51A with red stars)). Although I can't track them down right now, I have seen photos of nume...

Re: Cockpit choice?

and then, why is it possible to make new repaints, but never repainted cockpits? How many repaints have you looked at? There have been a good number of repaints released with modified cockpit and instrument textures. Others can list theirs - all of my repaints, listed below (available at Avsim, Fli...

Re: RAF Desert Camo (VH-TXN WIP)

Thank you Martin, Chris, Jim and Nick! I'm glad you like it! For my next repaint to be released, I decided to do a simpler one again. This is Buzz Cortese's SNJ, which is commonly seen on the east coast of the US, such as at the annual MAAM WWII Weekend airshows. I've only just started on this one, ...

Re: RAF Desert Camo (VH-TXN WIP)

Hey guys, I'm terribly sorry for such a long delay in getting this one finished and uploaded. Time ran-out last Sunday evening to get everything finished that I wanted to still get to, and then this past work week was very busy (besides being sick for most of it). Anyway, I have finally uploaded the...

Re: Finished Repaints

Except that that one is no longer owned by the CAF - it used to be based at my local airport with the Minnesota Wing of the CAF, but it was sold a couple years ago (it is now privately owned by an individual in Colorado, who also owns a P-40N that he purchased from Australia last year). Despite its ...
