    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FSX Military skins - WWII Description: I have attempted to create a fictional USAF rendition of "Red Dog XII" as it would have appeared if the USAF had ordered F8F's in 1946. In reality Red Dog XII is a P-51D from the 334th FS, 4th FG, 8th Air Force USAAF. Hope you enjoy it!

    Is that why I was unable to upload a skin last night? Gave me an error saying my file type was too large, but it was not? Very coolnthough, will be much easier to search! Thank you.

    I have a partially hidden "101" in my spec alpha. Which to my taste, I kind of liked the effect. One thing im going to eliminate is the strap line. I guess I could try to eliminate the "101" completely and offer it as an alternative .dds file. I was thinking that it looked a lot more used that way...but it shouldn't be too much trouble to create a separate file for those who don't like remnants! We'll see what I can come up with...

    Well I think I've got the stencil look I want. Unfortunately it's just slightly the wrong font...err..stencil...but I can't find the correct one...not sure how to create my own yet...but I'm happy with this fictitious representation! Just need to package it up and upload now...Drop tank textures will be included also...

    Still learning the ropes of this repainting business, and wish I had the skills of some you artists out there! But it's getting close...finally got the Stencils on. But I've got to figure out how to get a red border around the the "PQ" and "0"... I've also seen a dog nose art on the right hand side on a restored version but I've also seen pictures without it...not sure which is more accurate, but since I can't find a completely side on profile shot in high enough resolution I may have to negate the dog art altogether...Since it's fictional anyway! I guess it doesn't much matter! Enjoy!

    Thanks Mike! As for the bearcat...You can't yet! I'm still working it. But it is based on my all metal paint which can be found in the first couple of pages under "new" here at SOH. I will release it here exclusively when done. http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/local_links.php?action=jump&catid=3&id=18883

    Landing at Frontier Air Park, Lake Stevens, WA. And one from out of KVGT and north of Vegas. Almost done with the Red Dog XII paint, but I'm still having trouble with the "QP" stencil which belong on the fuselage...so it's missing...

    The effect on the engine in the foreground looks very 3Dish...at least on my monitor! Cool.

    Hi Dave, I have built my most recent PC (2 yrs ago this Nov) using an AMD FX-8150 3.6ghz-4.2ghz CPU and I run an nvidia GTX 770 4GB GFX card. I am very happy with my build and it cost less than $1000 to build. I get anywhere from mid - high 20 ' s FPS in full blown areas like Seattle with Orbx scenery and light bloom on and REX with updates every 15 mins, up to high 80's FPS in more rural areas and high altitude. I also have clouds set to full density, and the internal FPS limiter of FSX set to unlimited. Just my experience.

    It's no go for me as well...I'm not sure what happened to the interesting planes they were making, but they've derailed I guess from that philosophy and are on the boring track now...I was really liking the unique aircraft they were putting out at first...and I bought them all, go figure! Now, not. Oh well. We're being buried in Cessna's and derivitive Piper Malibu's!!! LOL. I would love to see their talent get put into something like a whole series of X-planes. X-1E, X-5, X-24B, XF-92A etc. There's an entire world of FS that literally has never been produced for FS, yet no one will touch it for some reason...not sure why...That would be worth $30 in IMHO. If they ever get back to the Aerobatic planes again, I'd be all in for another one of those! Alas, I have complete respect...

    First time trying to use decals etc...not sure I like how it turned out...but it's a first go at it! This was not an easy time..the paint kit was not easy for me to use...but getting through it trial and error! I think I need different stars and bars though as I don't think the USAAF used the red stripe? Anyway...

    Can't wait! I have over 50hrs in the real thing...It's a must buy for me, but only for nostalgia's sake...I hope it flies by the numbers and they fix their G1000 FPS killer code by then. I also hope it uses the Thielert 2.0L powered engines for performance figures. It's a great aircraft to fly.
