    The Republic XP-72 was Alexander Kartveli's proposal for a replacement for his fabulously successful P-47 Thunderbolt. It was evolved in parallel with the XP-69 escort fighter project. The XP-69 was a completely new design, whereas the XP-72 was a more-or-less straightforward progressive development of the P-47 Thunderbolt. The XP-72 was the first fighter to be designed around the huge 28-cylinger Pratt & Whitney R-4360 Wasp Major, the most powerful piston engine produced during World War 2. The engine was close-cowled and was fan-cooled. The Wasp Major was to have driven a pair of three-bladed Aeroproducts contrarotating propellers. The wing and tail of the P-47D were to be retained, but the airframe was enlarged and strengthened. The turbosupercharger was still located aft of the...

    Bring it on Son! :-) It would make for an interesting race with the weight differences. But the 72's R-4360 does have a slight advantage. :wiggle: Frankly, I had no intention of finishing it but since the 47's had mostly all the same parts, I just cloned the empennage, wings and cockpit and here we are Sir! :jump: Tom had actually cleaned up the flight model back in '09 so its good to go save a fuselage paint job. I just need someone to paint her ... Nigel (sorry, he's offline for a few days). We had hoped to get the betas out this past weekend but there were a few remaining bits to finish up so we'll shoot for this coming weekend. Sounds for the V-16 still a WIP and we're trying to get the Checklists cleaned up to minimize aircraft damage and busted up parts. :-)

    I use my mouse for that, which is just to the right of my stick shifter. I mapped quite a few functions to that as well.

    On the highest difficulty/realism setting a clutch is required, though I haven't tried it yet. Most major European cities are just the outskirts with some industrial area, you never get to drive into a city. Most of the driving is done along the major highways, and driving times are nowhere near realistic. I can do a 300 mile trip in 45 minutes. Unlike flightsimming I think that's a good thing, as it still is a game; I already have a full-time job! There is traffic on the road, but none of the congestion that makes real trips a nuisance sometimes. When you are driving through a country you will see some of the landmarks, especially near the cities. I was pleasantly surprised to drive out of Amsterdam and find the road that cuts through Schiphol airport, looking just like the...

    Driving to and from the UK can be a bit confusing with left and right hand drive trucks and switching to the other side of the road when you have crossed the channel: Stuck in a bit of traffic in Germany: And after a few days of working for others I bought my first truck today!

    Found this on sale at Steam last week, the Original game and the expansion pack together for 5,93 ($8.19) and I have to say it is not a bad game! Quite a different pace from all my race sims, but quite relaxing to drive around. The basic objective of the game is to make money and gain experience by hauling freight all over Europe, so you can buy your own truck and start your own trucking company. You can even hire other drivers if you want. I first started out driving for other companies to get some funds, get used to the driving and explore the world a bit. Inside a Volvo: My dream truck is the 730 hp version of this Scania:

    Since you are using the FSX SDK let's wait for an FSX modeler to answer this one.

    Matt, The eyepoint in the VC is controlled by the coordinates you place in the aircraft.cfg file in teh following statement: eyepoint=-5.255, 0, 2.675 //Fore/aft; left/right; up/down stated in feet In your design program find the coordinates of the pilot's nose bridge, select a vertice to get the coordinates (X,Y,Z) (convert them to feet) then update the eyepoint statement in the aircraft.cfg in format y,X,Z

    :encouragement: For the Leviathan! One of the aircraft also featured in the 'Bugatti 100P' book as the engine is the BR.20 was the ultimate version of Bugatti's famous straight-eight road car engine. The inline-eight was already a combination of two four cylinders, but for his aircraft engines Ettore combined his car engines to a U-16 (Two parallel eights, also built in America as a powerplant for the LUSAC-21, but the Liberty engine was lighter and more reliable.) a double U-16 (Two U-16 in a row, with the front engine higher than the back engine) and finally the H-32 that was used in the Breguet. Each row of eight cylinders could be declutched in case of a failure, leaving the engine running on the remaining 24. It never became a success though. Some of Bugatti's aircraft engines...

    Hey Rob, heb je al gezien dat de Aeroplane Monthly een artikel heeft over de Uiver?
    Waarschijnlijk ligt het blad volgende week wel in de winkels.


  5. OK, ik zie 't wel.
    Wat voor concert??
    En de Uiver had pech?

    Hey Rob, foto's van de open dagen komen er hopelijk vanmiddag aan; ik heb ook nog even een concertje vanavond dus niet veel tijd om 1350 foto's uit te zoeken. Show viel wat tegen, aangezien het meeste klassieke spul (Inlcusief de Uiver!) met pech aan de grond stonden. Het weer viel ook wat tegen, vooral de eerste dag. Toch nog flink verbrand, maar ja..
