    The original request for the Pearl Harbor National Memorial came from Wrench here: https://combatace.com/forums/topic/94790-3d-object-request/?tab=comments#comment-767482 Today in the United States it is Memorial Day. A time to remember and honor those who have died in service to our great nation. And specific to this request, “The USS Arizona Memorial, at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and Marines killed on USS Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and commemorates the events of that day.” I unexpectedly found some free time, and have been working relentlessly to get my version in a decent condition so I could post an update today. Everything has been scratch built including most of the texture work. It started off as just a quick hull mesh, but as time went on, I felt a sense of honor and patriotism in creating this – and that’s when things evolved. With the state it’s in, dare I say you can even take a fairly convincing virtual walk-through of the memorial – overkill perhaps but I found it extremely gratifying. I’m still making some overall form tweaks and other updates, but am proud to be sharing the latest progress especially today and hope it is a proper tribute.

    RAF Detling Coastal Command At the moment i make one airbase per day. 38 bases of the RAF are on the map. So you can calculate when the terrain can be finished. I think X-mas this year is realistic. Or in two weeks.

    Republic F-7A Thunderstorm - Thunderstorm Test & Evaluation Flight, Tactical Air Command, United States Air Force, 1965 During late 1958 the Langley Laboratory made the breakthrough that led to the realisation of a valid variable-sweep wing and by early 1959 Tactical Air Command (TAC) could see that this massive technological breakthrough could be the key to help them in their search for a tactical strike fighter to replace both the F-100 Super Sabre andthe F-105 Thunderchief. Pretty soon however the numerical values for unrefuelled range and payload that TAC had attached to their mission requirements had the effect of turning all the paper studies from F-105 sized machines to much larger tactical bombers with a corresponding increase in cost and price and this reduced affordability was of great concern to TAC. In the Autumn of 1959 TAC wisely decided to split their requirement into a smaller tactical fighter to replace the F-100 and a larger tactical bomber to replace the F-105, B-57 and B-66. The larger aircraft would evolve into Specific Operational RequirementNo.183 that would launch the important TFX (tactical fighter experimental) programme and eventually lead (via a tortuous route) to the outstanding but highly compromised F-111 family whilst the smaller aircraft would lead to Specific Operational Requirement No.182 or TAX (tactical aircraft experimental). Issued in March 1960 SOR182 called for a single-seat tactical fighter aircraft with “reduced dependence of paved runways” and with “the ability to carry a nuclear bomb at supersonic speed at tree-top height”. Requests for Proposals were immediately sent out to industry and Republic Aviation’s proposal soon gained the support of TAC by virtue of its use of a variable-sweep wing but also by the use of the existing J75 turbojet and F-105 avionics. With the end of F-105 production on the horizon Republic Aviation pushed hard for SOR182/TAX and in February 1961 they were rewarded with a contract for 24 prototype and pre-production YF-110 aircraft and 400 production F-110A machines and Republic wasted no time in bestowing the name of ‘Thunderstorm’ to the latest of their long line of fighter aircraft. Republic Aviation were fortunate in being awarded the contract before Secretary of Defence Robert S. McNamara had got into his stride and the programme largely escaped McNamara and his whiz-kids. Development moved swiftly and during 1962 the programme was re-designated F-7 under the new tri-service designation scheme and the first prototype took to the air on December 22nd 1962 a full year ahead of the F-111A. Entering service in June 1965 the F-7A was followed by the F-7B two-seat trainer version and the more advanced F-7C version that first deployed to Vietnam in March 1968 when a two-squadron wing transferred to Takhli Royal Thia AFB, Thailand in a deployment called ‘Combat Lancer’.

    Pits done.basically......just doing data.ini and lights and a few gauge things to add..plus removing stuff you cant see...polys mostly...like seat for instance...seats were say 1000 polys are now 400 etc..trying to do it so everyone can fly it ...with lesser pc`s ...planes 99% ready too.been doing low poly distance lods etc too.......should be done by midweek next week ...hopefully. This is clean cockpit...also supplied will be options for a used look...

    So I was going through some pictures and I found my simming rig from 2004.....so I thought it might be fun to see if anyone has pics of their setups from a long time ago and what they look like now. So I have one pic from 2004 and one I took earlier today. Look how far we have come.

    Hey guys! I am one step closer to make the space fighter based on the Orion capsule. Our engineers and scientists had already made the first orbital tests of this capsule and they have already retrieved it from the waters of Dhimar! (By the way thanks a lot for all the skinning tips and examples, specially to russouk2004 ) I will start now with the following service modules!

    we all started like you m8....try ur hand at it...its daunting when you open max etc fit=rst time...but soon you get to know it...really good tuts out there...if not Blender...thats free redoing refuel probe area...thought have few hours rest from the C117 lol also ...sometimes worth tracking down model creators even official game ones...as sometimes you will be suprised....this model I found IS freeware...I also tracked down creator to check...and had permission to convert even if free....so its worth the effort usually they dont mind as long as no one apart from them is making money out of them.....which is understandable.

    View File Dassault Mystère IVA The Mystère IV was an evolutionary development of the Mystère II aircraft. Although bearing an external resemblance to the earlier aircraft, the Mystère IV was in fact a new design with aerodynamic improvements for supersonic flight. The prototype first flew on 28 September 1952, and the aircraft entered service in April 1953. The first 50 Mystere IVA production aircraft were powered by British Rolls-Royce Tay turbojets, while the remainder had the French-built Hispano-Suiza Verdon 350 version of that engine. This plane was "the star" of War of the Stripes over Suez in 1956 France was the main operator of the Mystère IV and at the peak usage operated 6 squadrons. Most of the aircraft were purchased under a United States Offshore Procurement contract and many were returned to US custody after they were retired. In April 1953 the United States government and the United States Air Force placed an order for 223 aircraft to be operated by the French. The new Mystère IVs were used in the 1956 Suez Crisis and continued in use into the 1980s The Mystère IV became Israel's first swept-wing fighter when an order for Mystère IIs was changed to 24 Mystère IVs in 1955, which were delivered from April to June 1956, equipping 101 Squadron. A further 36 were delivered in August 1956, with a final aircraft, equipped for reconnaissance duties, delivered in September 1956. On 29 October 1956, when Israel attacked Egypt in the opening move of what became known as the Suez Crisis, invading the Sinai Peninsula, the Mystères of 101 Squadron were deployed on both air-to-air and ground attack mission. A second squadron, 109 Squadron was equipped with the Mystère IV in December 1956, while 101 Squadron passed its Mystères to 116 Squadron in November 1961. Israel planned to replace the Mystère IV with the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk, but 109 and 116 Squadron still operated the French fighter on the outbreak of the Six-Day War. The Mystère was finally retired from Israeli service on 18 March 1971. India procured 104 of aircraft in 1957 and used them extensively in the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965. The phasing out of the aircraft started soon after the 1965 Indo-Pakistani War, though it saw further action in the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, it was completely phased out of the Indian Air Force by 1973. This is a big High Res update of my previous and other modders skins and new ones. Plane tweaking. WHAT'S IN: - 43 new skins (IDF 12; 5 IAF; 16 AdA) - historical decalsets - missing antenna added - taxing dance solved - openable autoclosing canopy - pilot CREDITS: - Tk plane - Geary High Rez temps - Ghostrider883 IAF previous skins - Wilco IDF decals - Coupi new antenna TO INSTALL: - all in main mod folder and overwrite OPERATIONS: - key 10 = Canopy open NOTE: I looked for the Hispano Suiza Verdon sound, but no luck. If someone has it, please share. Enjoy @paulopanz Submitter paulopanz Submitted 05/23/2020 Category Mystere IV
