    Kevin, the barrack-room lawyers are at it again ! The whole philosophy behind that early guidance from our Texan maestro was that a quiz consisting of fresh-out-of-the-wrapper machines, or endless Piper clones, would be (a) boring, and (b) rather against the ethos of a forum which is, after all, called 'Historical Wings Society'. Trouble is, all of you young whippersnappers are just too damn GOOD !! Therefore to find something that hasn't been posted before is almost impossible, resulting in the 'rules' being applied very liberally ! Those of us for whom interesting aircraft were not built after 1950, (and popular music after 1980!) will just have to accept that standards, as in all of modern life, have crumbled. O tempora, o mores.... (By the way that 'newbie', wout, for whom...

    Hee, hee, hee! :applause: As post #1 indicates only that non-unusual/non-historically significant gliders are interdit, where does one find the subsequent amendments to the rules?

    And here we have a typically stupid 'Monaco Wing' from the devious and sneaky Tom Walkinshaw. (Arrows). Failed scrutineering of course.

    Should be entertaining even in the present day configuration. I made it to Ricard back in the 500cc MotoGP era and watched one of the best races of that time, Gardner, Sarron, Roberts and Eddie Lawson (IIRC) going at it like a knife fight in a phone box! Epic circuit. Have a great weekend! :encouragement:

    Very odd indeed. I keep a backup of my 'ready to fly' aircraft on an external HD. Mainly to keep the .cfg in order if there are addition repaints added, where possible this includes gauges and effects. By way of an experiment I ran the installer into FSX, removed the aircraft folder and replaced it with my backup. No very pleased and rather puzzled as my P3D installer was fine but without my backup files, so that might be the missing link. And just to really piss me off finding paperwork several years old to look for any updates is a PITA!

    Ivan replied to a thread Airacobra in CFS1 General Discussion
    My selection of a subject to model is usually based on what I believe to be the "best performing" of the series that actually served a meaningful role in combat. For the Airacobra, its time as a front line fighter was fairly short. Its first major production version, P-39C, first flew in early 1941 and production ended in July 1944 with the P-39Q-30-BE. After 1943, when more advanced and better performing fighters became available, the P-39 served mostly as Lend-Lease equipment to allies who were desperate for equipment or served as fighter trainers in the United States or as ground attack aircraft. The P-39C was the first production model but carried no significant armour. Its armament was all mounted in the nose and consisted of 1 x 37 mm cannon with 15 (!) rounds 2 x .50...

    It really annoyed me because it was so familiar. I knew it was hanging there in the dark recesses. I actually put it on the list of "someday I'll post this" several eons ago, but it also has appeared here twice in varying forms before Green's offering. The first time was way back (?) in Feb. 2009 - a first posting of a challenge by someone going by the name of "wout". Powerplants have differed but the airframe is constant. BTW, a slightly earlier post (#1200) is rather entertaining, considering where we are these days :biggrin-new:

    Hello yourself Pat! I am indeed doing well Sir. In the throes of FCA buying back my 2016 Hellcat and her replacement is due this week in the dealership. Looking forward to receiving her in the Land of the Morning Calm. I have indeed supported Razbam even after their failed FSX A-7 TacPack debacle, by buying their Mirage 2000 and the Harrier. Though I bought one on sale and used my points to buy the other at a nicely discounted price. So, providing discounted support to them when I can but like what they are throwing us in DCS. I will certainly buy their Strike Eagle when it's released, but of course on sale. I will just always have a bone to grind with them for abandoning a project I pre-purchased and then them not ever throwing a bone or at least being man enough to openly apologize...

    Thank you, Daveroo I have just finished laying up the wings. I will infill the lower wing and then shape, sand and fill it until it is as ready for paint as the fuselage/main assembly is. Once that is done I can attach the lower wing and fair it into the bottom of the fuselage using the plan instruction of adding stringers and then infilling until a smooth and continuous shape is achieved. At that point I plan to paint the main assembly, then complete the elevator and rudder, paint and apply them to the model. The upper wing will be done as a separate and complete model unto itself..there is a ton of detail to add to the upper wing after all. Then I can paint it and attach it after the windscreens are installed to the fuselage. I still need to have decals made (or make them...

    It looks like to me that the Lodestars have got Hudson textures on them that are not meant for them, seems to me that the problem is that the models and textures have somehow got mixed up. I think you should just uninstall the whole package and then reinstall them in the proper sequence. I dont think there would be anything wrong with the textures, it's just that the order of the models and textures are out of place.
