    Ouch!! I would understand the price (maybe) if it was for a ship simulator. But last time i checked I am using mine for flying.

    Things do seem to be tougher in other parts of the world, but I assume that workers in the UK do enjoy some rudimentary legal protections against all too sudden job termination. Don't worry, I won't lose any sleep over it.

    Folks, Been sitting on this for some time, tweaking and getting it all together. Another great model from Chris Lampard, with his tex for the night fighter. I'm doing the 2D and VC panels. I've also modded it into a couple of other models, a Jabo (bomb armed) and recon (drop tanks) version, with another tex. Still quite a bit to do...and no time scale, but close. Cheers Shessi

    Why is it that when a business fails for whatever the reason, people feel they have an entitlement to expect free or discounted product as a result of that failure. Whatever happened is done and is between the principals of that business and their employees and shareholders. It really is nobody else's business. Why it happened is also of no import to anyone except creditors and staff. What is the average most people are "down"? $20? you can still play the game, for those that have not yet got the game, you missed the boat. Tough. We are saying that the true value of the thing should be a few dollars? How does that help or reward all the hard-working people who worked on it? How does that show them any respect? The fact is that, unfortunately for those involved, it has happened...

    At the back of "Pilot's Summer" there is a comment that the relatively high purchase cost,docility in general handling and higher fuel consumption of the Tutor weighed against it in comparison to the Tiger Moth. David Ogilvy in "From Bleriot to Spitfire" essentially concurs: " It is a gentleman's aeroplane in its roominess and docility........Assessing it as an aeroplane to fly, it qualifies as excellent; judging it as a trainer on which to teach, it fails to object sufficiently strongly to minor mishandling, so an instructor might not find his pupils' errors standing out as glaringly as they should." Sounds good to me. Now all you have to do is decide how much of the flight envelope you can most closely match within the limits of flightsim! I think it was Brian Lecomber who...

    Mick, All done...Ha! spotted a few things myself!! Isn't it always the way...... On the Quonset tex, the mapping was wrong for the RH float arm, not yellow as the LH one, corrected that. You had forgotten to re-tex the radome, so was the wrong blue colour, re-done that small tex. Also on the ac.cfg changes in your README for your x3 tex upload, unfortunately you missed out the ui_manufacturer=Consolidated for the Quonset tex, so it doesn't show up, corrected that. So now corrected under wing mdl for all blue tex, shined, correct mapping for all texs, and complete ac.cfg...phew!

    Very nice wake effect which changes with speed... I imagine in P3D it would be even more spectacular.

    Yeah, you'd be surprised. At various times I've been asked to blindside staff - and in good karmic fashion, I've been blindsided myself. It's one thing to have the sense that sales aren't running as expected. It's another to be called into a room, told your whole unit is being let go, and then you're given an hour to pack your stuff while the security guards watch you - all without warning. The decision often happens in some other part of the business, and it catches everybody completely off-guard. Sometimes the higher-ups haven't made up their minds 'til the last minute (and I've been part of that dynamic, too, poring over spreadsheets and trying to save at least some of your people while they keep changing the parameters on you). Sometimes they've made the decision well in advance...

    Some hints: She later received a slightly taller canopy, a taller fin with flat rather than rounded top, a cut down rear fuselage and a more normal cowling leaving the cilinders exposed. The registration remained unchanged though:biggrin-new:
