    The VGA connector is essentially on the bottom in the pecking order of video connectors. HDMI cables are almost never included as they're an added cost to the base pricing of the monitor...;)

    Made an animated canopy release lever...though at the moment it ops the spoiler...got a popup for the radar config...and glass on the screen....and added an electrics popup. Now need to add some hud glass...and alter the saturation on a few bits...and get the canopy release to actually....release the canopy...;) Edit ....that wasn't hard....

    Expat....I have the AP popping up just under the radar panel ...so it's innocuous....and can be left open...sorta win-win...;) I need to get these gauges under glass before they rust....and add an electrics popup of some sort... Here's where the AP is... ...note the fuel gauge...when things get 'complicated' you get conflicts...looks like the RMI is the culprit....off to fix...;)

    Sorry, DL...but the kids don't really have to eat...every now and then is enough...;) I've fixed the center console and the sides...to look closer to the 8. Now need to find a good pic of the stick...;)

    Lights as close to original functions/locations as poss. Did a new set of Gear indicators to match correct locations. Stick's in...it's a Thud one...till I find a good F8 one to use...Now gotta relocate the knob for the ILS...and improve the sides.......;) ....and the canopy eject handle....and the screen and gauge glass....and switches...probably need a few of those....

    The advantage of adapting the 105.... I now have mirrors, canopy and even reflected mirrors all functioning as with my 105... and the first mask is done sothe gauges look 'inserted'. More to do...gotta get a better ATT and pull the bezel off the RALT... ....and put one around the radar....;)

    I went another way....had a low-res but fairly square-on photo...with a bit of swearing...including re-attaching some of the bezels...it might work OK... ....obviously early days...still gotta get some better-matched gauges.... ...and turn the radar housing into a mask....and make the surrounds less 105 and more 8 ...;)

    "In my case I didn't notice the mistake until a full day after it happened and probably did at least one defrag that previous evening. " Dang! That'll toast success. Typically what's able to be 'saved' are 'simple' files like a photo or a doc .... something that exists in singularity and is not reliant on other files to also be intact. You likely now have close to zero chance of complete recovery as a functioning database....and will have to bite the bullet and start over. I feel for you. The most complex architectural drawings I'd ever done were 'drowned' when I was cleaning my dye-line printer . Tracing paper does NOT like liquid.

    Having a go at a different tack... This is what happens when you start with a 1680 F105 Thud panel and add the F8 one to it.....gauges are still for 1024...but this trick means I 'might' be able to use my existing opening Thud canopy and mirrors, reflections, etc.....though I'd need to put the canopy pull-handle on the canopy...not the screen...;) Might be better to just find a better image and do it all from scratch ...like the others...;) Got the folded map of Vietnam already though...;)

    ...or follow post #14 ...;) Mentioned....redundancies .... remote storage ...as to be certain....if you're not even 'there' to grab the PC...or backup then your backup plans are toast...along with your data...;) Forget CD/DVD unless 'temporary'....the jury is still 'out' as to real/reliable expected life-span of a burnt disc. Forget the 'cloud' or any external 'storage' outside of your own physical control. If you do not control it physically then you cannot guarantee it is always there...or will continue to be. Just last night I was explaining to a Stardock customer that since his subscription had expired he no longer had access to the files he had 'assumed' he could always download.....he can....simply as long as the sub continues. Last time I purchased an aircraft the DL...

    Good to hear you were in luck...;) When windows 'deletes' a file it is simply an altered first character to the name so that the OS file system cannot 'find' it again....unless it's in the bin still. Rewrites to the same drive sectors eventually obliterate the data....more than 'just' the name. Invest in redundancy backups....meaning more than one. Ideally you should have the original files....on one drive....a backup on a second PHYSICAL drive...and a second backup on a third . Odds of a third going too is long enough to be meaningless. External drives tend to fail a little too often due to heat in the enclosure and/or bad data CRC due to wobbly cabling. Internals are more reliable...and while you're at it...get an UPS to protect from spike/surge and forced shutdown .

    I expect you're right...as the second pic shows the same model with a bigger tailplane...a 'prettier' solution than the proto's 'afterthought'...;)

    From a design standpoint you'd have to ask 'why?'. '.......well....it looked OK on paper'.....;)
