  2. Sixth Generation Stealth Overview

    Looks like some of my airshow pix. Subject a/c is usually about an inch or two on the other side of the right or left margins!
  3. Spanish Civil War - Heinkel He.51

    As always, good job Stephen1918! Flies nice right out of the box and everything works well!
  4. WIP o Trabajos en progreso

    Roger that - and perhaps the PB4Y-1's observation stations as an option?
  5. Southwest Captain brings his Dad home

    Worth-your-while video from this morning's AvWeb e-zine:
  6. Two weeks before it's released?
  7. Mk1 eyeball

    Been there...done that...!

    Courtesy of AvWeb, detailed video with pretty impressive ending...
  10. Just beautiful! A thing to behold! What do you think - release the package in a week or two?

  12. Happy Independence Day

    Got sworn in fifty years ago today - so long ago the Eagle didn't have her racing stripes yet! Happy Birthday America!

  14. Thanks, Mue, for both the explanation and the excellent tutorial - even I could follow it and it works great! I'm not looking to add to your workload and I don't have much of an idea on how common this situation is with these model remote nodes/meshes installed so far away from the primary's map, but could this be automated in a future version?
  15. A great asset to the community, Mue! I haven't had any significant problems with using it over the last couple days, but I've found a model ( https://combatace.com/files/file/12642-sh-3d-seaking-for-sf2/ ) where the data populates but the map doesn't appear (see below) on one of the three LOD's in the package. The other two LOD's seem to work fine. It's likely a self-inflicted wound - do I have a setting (or something else) wrong or am I completely missing something?

    The lifeboat was PS'd and the ASV radar used to be the chin turret before that was PS'd. I searched the archives but didn't see a PB-1G so I picked up the base model out of the B-17G Flying Fortress Pak and modified it.

  18. Somewhat out of the Loop for awhile

    Sorry to hear of your loss, and best wishes for your future being bigger and brighter!
  19. Interesting, VonS - maybe I missed this part, but is this for only SF2 or for both FE2 and SF2? Every once in a while I try to get an SF2 model (or more generally, a pair of them) to work in FE2 but don't have any success (maybe 10% of the time). The aircraft will show during the selection screens, but immediately after you select "Fly Now", you're sitting in mid-air with no cockpit, no aircraft, and no airspeed. Occasionally, dependent upon type, you might see a bomb hanging beneath a wing, but no wing to hold it up! Any ideas on this?

    It's just a girl I knew a long time ago, dear...
  21. The S-97 Raider

    Impressive video - with all that capability, I can't quite imagine what it's like to fly one of those, but I wouldn't mind finding out!
  22. Another Buff Reactivated...

    From this morning's AvWeb Flash E-zine, a B-52H named "Wise Guy" was delivered to Barksdale this past week from being parked a little over ten years at Davis-Monthan. This is the second B-52H to escape the boneyard, and when fully refurbished, "Wise Guy" will become the 76th B-52H in USAF service. The article also included an interesting video on the B-52, but the audio part could have been done a lot better! See the link below:
  23. Da Vinci's Flying Machine for First Eagles

    Nice job, Stephen 1918 and Von S, for bringing FE2 its first stealth aircraft model!
  24. I'll bet that was some pretty fancy stick and rudder work...you were fortunate you were still able to drop the gear! A good candidate for "the Second-Luckiest Pilot" award!
  25. P-51D for sale in Texas

    Just a little too pricey for me, but for some of the CA high-rollers, the link below takes you to a website advertising "possibly the last unrestored P-51D" (former Guatemalan AF) along with many spares including twenty Merlin powerplants. Lots of detailed pix of aircraft and spares: https://www.platinumfighters.com/p-51d-n38227
