    This evening the whole race was broadcasted again after the Indy500 so I was able to see it after all. Nico couldn't keep his pace on a wet track. Nico let his team mate pass as Lewis was much faster in the wet. He seemed a bit faster on the dry track, but than he was stuck behind Alonso. At the end of the race there was some rain again, due to which he was overtaken by Hulkenberg. Wombat: Personally I think the Max Verstappen's race was quite impressive until his crash. In less than half race he managed to get from P22 on the grid to P9 in the race. And I saw some very smooth overtaking on a circuit which is known as the circuit where this is nearly impossible. I think Dr Helmut Marko is clever enough to know that this could be one of the consequences of putting a very young driver...

    I only saw some flashes of the race, including the Red Bull tyre change :dizzy:. Nevertheless a good run by Lewis and a well deserved win. Max made it an expensive weekend for Red Bull. Two cars in one weekend, won't make the team happy...... Cheers, Huub

    A nice Willy :encouragement: And despite all the advertising by several companies, Piglet's T-33 is still the only one around for FSX, and I do not see another one available soon. Cheers, Huub

    In France it is more common to start a law case like this. In my real world job I have seen several, where the French judges took very unexpected decisions in favour of those who brought the law case in. Cheers, Huub

    Strange qualifying sessions! Most drivers were faster in Q2 than in Q3. A not so bright manouvre from our young Dutch talent. It was only Q1, so the 14th time is sufficient. No reason to push it this hard in his first lap. Bad luck for Lewis, but in the end he did a good job by qualifying 3rd. I'm not able to see the race as I have other obligations, but it will be an interesting one. Ricciardo on harder tyres than the rest. And perhaps some rain. But isn't Monaco always an interesting race..... Cheers, Huub

    alhouse, To start the engines, you must continually click/drag on the switch (about 2 times per second) until ignition. Takes about 6-8 clicks as I recall. The issue is most of these starters only hold for .7 - 1 second and stops, so continually clicking the switch holds the starter engaged until ignition. Yes, the water rudders are in the contact points. In FS9, I use shift+W to activate; in FSX, cntrl+W.

    All very interesting project, but the Avro really has my attention! :applause: :applause: :applause: And a Gauntlet would really be great. Frank Elton's FS2002 is really showing its age and isn't really repaint friendly. Cheers, Huub

    In my world it is certainly not uncommon to work with very old technology. It takes between 12 to 8 years to develop a scientific satellite. So in the design phase you choose the most modern technology, which is however at least 8 years old when you launch the spacecraft. It is hardly possible to introduce more modern technology during the proces as all parts and the assembly needs to be qualified and when you change one part you have to start the whole proces again for the integrated systems. It took the scientific satellite Rosetta, with its small lander Philea, more than 10 years to reach the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. So the technology on board was already at least 20 years old. (Ouch there goes the myth that space technology is the most modern technology....) Here at...

    Well explained Sir. I had wanted to put the 23' launch aboard the Bounty along with the 20' Cutter but, alas, was against technical boundaries. So much so, that I had to gut all of the "Hold" deck and much of the lower deck furnishings of the Bounty. Nigel's scenery is unique is so many ways but this period scene is one to be relished and I am with all of you, awaiting his time to revisit and dazzle us in historic flavor.

  1. Hello Maarten :-)

    Wow! That would be great. I'll send you the address in a PM.

    Thank you very much! :-)


    Hi Milton,

    Hope you're well.

    I realized to day that I have a very interesting e-book on my hard disk entitled "Stoof Driver - Flying the Grumman S-2 Tracker" by Mike Ray (private publication, 2003). It is about 300 pages "thick" and contains a treasure of photos, colour and b/w, many of great quality. Not only of the "Stoof" (S-2) but also the FUDD (E-1 Tracer). if you are interested I will be more than happy copying it for you and the project.

    Just let me know and send me your address so I can send it really quickly to you if you want it.

    Best regards,
    Maarten Brouwer
