  1. 84-year old sniper still has what it takes

    You cant keep a good man down . . . .
  2. CombatAce Photographers

    Im in no way pro, i just like to have a camera with me most times . . . you never know what may present itself! My bag - Sony A-230 with small 18-55mm kit lens, a Tamron 70-300mm and a Sigma 70-300mm, and a 500mm f4 tele lens. (+ a few filters etc) I am using full manual more now, but its a learning curve, at least i dont have to pay for reams of film to experiment with! Thank god for SD cards!! Some of the shots i am proud of are to follow. They aren't as good as a lot i have seen, but i like them and am happy that i took them. Thank you for viewing. Gary
  3. Rare Korean war photos . . .

    I believe that that particular MiG is on display, still in the same markings, in a US museum. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikoyan-Gurevich_MiG-15 In this link, go down to the section on Korean war service and there is a pic of the same machine, in its new home.
  4. Rare Korean war photos . . .

    http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums/showthread.php?195594-Allied-Aircraft-in-Korea Whilst roving the internet, i came across this rather fascinating thread with a collection of photos taken during the Korean conflict. Quite a slice of history here, so enjoy. Gary
  5. . . . . or if my wife is looking, i want a couple of these!!!! http://www.rogerdodger.net/diyflightsims/aim-9_lamp.html
  6. http://combatace.com/files/file/10453-fictional-parani-saeqeh-thunderbolt/ Could this be what you require?
  7. Just a few from Duxford airshow held earlier this year in September. Early morning hazy sun, F-86, Duxford or Korea???? Some high speed pointy thing . . . . (Lol) Hogs teeth . . . Sea Fury getting some TLC. XH588 Vulcan. Curtiss P-40. c-47 "Drag-'Em-Oot" Fairey Swordfish. P-47 Razorback "SNAFU!" P-47 & P-51 crossover. Crowd control was a little excessive i thought . . . . . . SA-2. EE Lightning. Tornado GR.4. Thanks for looking. Gary
  8. The single piece wind-shield was seriously considered as it enhanced forward view by 22% due to the bow framing no longer impeding the view. In the CAS and A2A aspect, it was a winner. However, without a serious redesign of the canopy bow sub structure (and forward fuselage attachments), the design suffered from lower impact limits compared to the original design (same spec bird carcass could only be deflected at below 350knts). It was that reason that precluded the single piece transparency from becoming a production article. That said, both the US E & G units had nothing but high praise for it in the visual arena.
  9. Ive had quite a few AIM-54 shots hit target, pass through, and come out the other side heading backwards! Also occasionally they pass through, and in a very wide arc (almost like they are trying to come back for a second pass!), climb for altitude! Sometimes i get it with the AIM-120, mostly its the -54, yet to see it with the 'winder. As a side note, i quite often get problems with JDAM. Drop the store (within parameters!) and it will just sail over the target and carry on for a few miles.
  10. SteelFlanker, that's what i'm aiming for! With regard to placement of targets etc (Wrench), then as long as the map is correctly proportioned i see no reason why it shouldn't work. I know absolutely dick about terrain creation, but it seems to me that there is a certain number of tiles that are of a generic type that are laid around the "coast" of a terrain to mimic as closely as possible the RL terrain, however, RL terrain cant (?) be recreated exactly as each tile that goes around the "coast" would be unique, and the resultant terrain folder would be of an impressive MB size! (Please tell me if i'm getting this wrong, as i really don't know!). However, i could take an ONC chart or upper airways chart, and break it down into small sections to overlay onto a Planning map piece by piece, and "squish" or deform (slightly!) to approximate the terrain features and outline of the original Planning map, thereby ensuring as much as possible that what you see on the map MFD, is very close to what you see outside your 'pit. Pertinent features such as power stations etc will correlate to the in game locations. Airbase symbols represented on ONC charts etc can just be moved a bit if, after laying the ONC onto the map, the symbols are off by any distance to the in game airbases. What do you guys reckon? Im going to do this anyway, success or not! It just may take a little while as with our newborn son, my SF2 time is a little constrained! I plan to do all the terrains that i have on my install, and when it comes to upload, i will seek the approval of the respective authors to go ahead with the maps that relate to their terrains. Hopefully i can do you guys proud.........
  11. Cool! Didn't realize it was that simple! Would it be worth uploading to the masses once ive got them accurate??
