  1. Just use easy reporting, no fuss, no muss. Beard
  2. That looks very good. Beard
  3. I only fly in the fall/winter/early spring, The room I have my WOFF computer in gets to hot to run heavy graphics. Upstate California gets toasty in the summer. Beard
  4. The Burnelli Conspiracy...

    No Hauksbee, I mean card stock. You print it out on your printer, cut it out, form the shapes and glue it together. The advantage being it is already painted, if you screw something up you can reprint it, and you can change it with programs like Gimp. This plane was from Murph's Models and was a free download. I didn't like the graphics on the model so I changed them to the what if scheme which I just made up. Here is another one that I shamelessly stole the WOFF scheme made by OVS. There were a bunch of modifications on this one, which was a Fiddlers Green kit which has also been offered for free (there are a ton of free paper model kits out there). This one was built a four or five years ago, when I first started the (what I call) idiot hobby. Beard
  5. The Burnelli Conspiracy...

    Here is a paper model of a Burnelli UB14 I built a while back in a "what if" scheme. I read somewhere that Charles DeGaulle used one as a personal aircraft. Beard
  6. Who Is This?

    That was a gimmy, and Australian with a machine gun. I just looked it up. Beard
  7. Who Is This?

    Robert Buie Beard
  8. Actually the DVIII or EV fuselage and empennage is very similar to the DR1 also, but of course the wing is entirely different. Beardd
  9. Boelke and Nurse Blanca...

    After years of painting signs, I have come to the conclusion that many people don't know how to spell their own names. Beard
  10. Flying Coffins...

    I don't have the book anymore (gul dernit) but if'n I remember properly from the Blue Max, Stachel describes the airplanes when he first reported the Jasta that they looked incredibly like coffins. Beard
  11. Rumpler Taube...

    That is a very interesting plane, They have one at the Boeing Aircraft Museum in Seattle. Beard
  12. Looks like a 1917 Really Sturdy Beard
  13. I think that white stuff on the rivers looks like it is an import from the coast lines (most likely a bad decision). As far as Blender goes, there is a new one out in the last year, but it is a steep learning curve for even a graphic geek like myself (thank God I can still run a brush). I'm really not sure how you go about export/import the file type you need, but I haven't really looked at that. This game really makes you want to play with that sort of thing. Making buildings seems to be the place to start to make the game even more immersive. Beard
  14. Open cockpits in the rain?

    I really think the size and shape of the windscreen is a major factor. My limited experience involves convertible cars only. In my old Bugeye with a short windscreen my hair would blow forward like the wind came from behind, however in my current car my hair hardly moves at all, though on cold mornings you can feel the wind coming from behind in the middle of the car. Of course the bugeye (Austin Healy Sprite MK1) was pretty small and in the rain I would actually it hit my forehead, but I am pretty tall. Also, I would remove the boot around the gear shift to get extra heat from the engine. Beard
