Help with landings Please..

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have been having trouble landing the aircraft in OFF..

I come in level, slowly reducing altitude and speed..

Keeping the nose slightly up..

and when I hit the ground, BANG!!

Hobbit pieces everywhere!!

Any advice on How to land these canvas and wire things would be Most welcomed..

 

OFF to wreck more OFF..

Now not to many people know this but if you look closely the lewis gun on your top wing is the infantry version thats your problem right there , the air version of the lewis has wheels on the magazine for just such occasions :cool:

HH - Nice to see you posting here...

Thank you very much Sir..

This place needs a Hobbit to bend these canvas and wire things properly..

 

I just need a purple and pink polka dotted DR1 and Camel too..

We hobbits like such things..

Love a nice Hobbit special..

Just Have to learn to skin, these were gifts..

I don't know guys, polka dots on DR1 could work.

And Olham, I seem to recall we painted a pink Alb for you quite some time ago, complete with a cup of tea emblazoned on the side of it. :grin:

Yes, I just think of the tactical advantage that will give you in a dogfight when your opponent is busy trying to clean off the inside of his windscreen. :biggrin:

You know, if you dial back the color intensity, add outlines to the polka dots, and put the crosses back on the top wing surfaces, it almost becomes believable:

The Bordeauxred Baron:

"Yes, you say quite rightly: YOU painted my Albatros pink! (Gasp!)

Now, we Germans are very liberal about colourful fighter planes; everyone knows that!

But pink Polka dots on purple aircraft can only originate from a Hobbit mind!

In my Staffel, I would threaten the guys with execution for the case anyone would commit

such forms of war crimes! Pink aircraft! (Barf! Vomit!! Thud!!!)"
