    Gear doors in the RW (on smaller aircraft) are usually mechanically opened as the gear moves. In modeling, one usually uses the gear animation tags. The doors must open quickly to allow the tire (which is very close to the doors) to move without penetrating through the doors.

    I'd love to see one of those Rob! I got my multi engine rating in one in 1976 when I had maybe 150 hours or so. I was sooooo far behind that thing with an image in my brain of hanging on to the yoke with my hands while my feet trailed out behind! :dizzy: Sky King I wasn't! cheers, steve :wavey:

    Not a problem asking Sir; wanting a de Havilland Dash 7 is exactly the reason I got into modeling back in 2000. :-) The plate is a bit full for now through the next two years likely and I do agree that request is better targeted to others. Thank you for thinking of me though. :-)

    Capital work, Skipper! :applause: Up for a gulp of fresh air here - with a cool breeze a blowin', rivits and panels now flowing amidships m'hearties. Visuals up here shortly. Lots of work, but as Milton says; plenty of fun getting there! Greetings to all! Nigel :wavey:

    Thanks! I found some repaints that needed different models, so I just installed all models in their own folders. One more question: Do you know which model to use for the 737-800 with the new 'split scimitar' winglets?

    Thanks for the Heads-up! I've Always liked the Fs9 model, good to have it in FsX again. The facebook page is a bit confusing though; there is an FsX model included in the basepack, so do I need to download one of his facebook and which..?

    Strangely enough, I think I still have all those changes. I am attaching the FM and the panel.cfg here. See if this is what you are looking for.

    At least! :biggrin-new: Dave, I usually use Microsol as mentioned above to make the decals look better on a model and make the shadow disappear, it works equally well on gloss and matt paints. Guess this Tamiya kit is quite old, as are the decals. One of the two Iron crosses on the turret even broke when I tried to slide it onto the model. I do like the airbrush set when using Tamiya paints, I do not like it when using Revell's own aqua colors. They seem to thick and dry too quick, causing flakes in the paint and clogs in the airbrush gun. I needed a lot more thinning for those paints than the manual described. There is a pulse in the air stream coming from the gun but with the right paints it is barely noticable.

    Thanks; I never used an airbrush before, but this Revell kit, although a bit basic, is easy to use and maintain and not too expensive. My Starfighter is the 1/48 Revell F-104 in Belgian Tigermeet colours, but apparently that is also an old ESCI kit: It comes with a few spare parts including a refuelling probe which was typical for US Starfighters. During my next holiday I hope to finish the paintwork on the body (Overall Lufthansa yellow) and paint the smaller parts. All the tiger stripes are decals.

    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..
