    Coming along...finally... Educated guesses re the obscured gauges ... and finally have those 'extracted' Yokes and pedestals working . Looks more like a plane now.... next is to work out what the radio gear is.... and various warning lights ....dunno where the landing gear lights are/should be... Then to chuck some glass in the windahs ...;)

    Still 11 gauges to 'work out' ....looks like 3 will be twin needle fuel qs, and a 'total q' or fuel-flow...and there's probably a cowl-flaps somewhere... But it's looking 'tidier' ...;)

    Bit of a break....MotoGP officialling at Phillip Island....and now back at the 46. Looks a bit odd without the yokes.....lot more to do with the gauges, but the ECU is the original working GAU 'inserted' into the Panel. As always...working out what gauge is what is the bane of my existence...;)

    I wouldn't buy Apple crap if you held a gun to my head. Their solution to their poor working conditions leading to suicides by workers jumping....was to install catch nets. Not my idea of a socially responsible company...whose prime directive is to hide income to avoid paying taxes.... the ACCC is now chasing them. Jobs liked the Beatles' music so stole their name...and was sufficiently arrogant as to admit the fact. WHEN Apple Label pushed them the agreement was made they would keep out of the music game. 2 years later there was iTunes. It's no fluke that the world's most profitable company is also the world's worst ....apart from Union Carbide....they killed more people ....;)

    There'll be no troubles with Win 7. It's by far a superior OS to XP. 8 on my laptop does the demo of FSX without issue....but I'm yet to try likewise on 10, but both 8 and 10 will be less resource-hungry than their predecessors....particularly Vista...which was comparatively a dog of an OS simply released too soon.

    Thought I'd do something a little different from those Vietnam-era Century series fighters, et al ....and fiddle with one of those things that has fans going round and round... Always 'fun' cobbling photos together...then extracting/deleting yokes...and finding 'ideal' gauges as are in those photos.... sometimes it takes forever....this may be one of them...particularly if I also meddle with the ECU.... Early days ...;)

    All a photographer does is 'press a button'...ergo in Photography 'all the work has pretty much been done for you' and thus is not art. Actually, the exact-same situation applies with BOTH the photographer AND the 'screenshot taker'. In both, the 'art' is in the subject/composition/lighting/etc. A GOOD screenshot is no different to a GOOD photograph. BOTH can have commercial potential. With both digital art and physical art, you WILL come across actual posted restrictions of it's simply being photographed and distributed elsewhere whether commercial OR freely. I've administered a website for the skinning of the Windows OS GUI since 2001 and am constantly dealing with the exact same issues as posted here. .... It's owned by Stardock . Google 'Windowblinds' and you'll get...

    ejoiner got it right ...it's a bit of the forward end of the fuse...projecting back into the VC pit. Possibly the VC co-ords need to be shuffled back in the model positioning....nothing at all to do with 'views' or eyeline ...;) Meanwhile...added my 'usual' staged AB effect...wing vapor 'glove' etc..... Pull over, driver....;)
