    LOL Chris. But, there's a time for work and a time for play. Nigel has been working on his "Winter Stores" build-up. As temps get cooler on the farm, progress will be faster. By the way, those sandwiches will look pretty good after 6-7 days with no food on that epic journey. :-)

    Thanks Rick, but I honestly consider myself a student among true masters, whom we all respect and admire. If you are inspired to push yourself to new levels, then I'm happy to have been a small inspiration. Your work has come so far since you caught the bug...you are an inspiration to me. :encouragement: :very_drunk:

    Back in the saddle and modeling full time. The F7F VC project is expanding to a full exterior/interior 3DS Max project. My original F7F Tigercat native conversion was a GMAX project, so I've decided to convert the native exterior model to 3DS Max in order to integrate the new VC in it's native format. I've imported the GMAX model into Studio and am doing a full re-model/upgrade with new details and general enhancements. The project involves quite a bit of work modifying the various vectors, rotation points and animations, but the end result will be worth the time invested. The project is at the point where I am integrating the new detailed VC into the 3DS Max flying model. At this stage I'm working on animations for the exterior and interior models with hi res texturing under...

    I had three weeks to fill waiting for internet installation at the new studio. I filled my time modeling, animating and filling out the F2A Buffalo and working on the new F7F 3DS Max exterior and VC models. Mr. Shupe graced me with full creative license on the F7F, so I decided to upgrade from the original GMAX model to an entirely new model in 3DS Max, based on the GMAX original. Here are a few prelim shots of the Buffalo VC, plus one basic Navy skin for my flying buck. This was a very complex cockpit, so the modeling will take some time. The basics are beginning to take shape with a frame and basic cockpit fundamentals in place. Smaller details and plumbing will be forthcoming. For these shots, I've poached the MK 20 reflector sight from the F7F VC, but I'll replace it with a...

    Thanks guys. It's definitely been a long...and arduous process to make this move. The new location is Oregon coast...and the water is frickin' cold, but the surf spots seem to hold potential if one does not mind sharing their surroundings with the Great Whites. lol I've done some basic recon and there are some extremely nice little airports that are crying to be added to the work load. Those will come after I release my Owens valley group...now that I am back working and not busy re-modeling the house and preparing for the move. One very nice little bush spot is at Lucas Lodge, Agness OR.

    gman5250 replied to a thread P3D 3.4 is out ! in Prepar3D
    Just got back online after the move. P3D 3.4.9.18400 I chose to do the clean install with this update. No issues, in fact now that I've structured my storage more efficiently, the updates are much more efficient. Not much seat time yet, but I seem to have picked up some performance. I'm running the current NVIDIA driver and the usual WFO settings in P3D. These shots are Jan and Manfred's C-47, utilizing my 4096 texture sets, over heavy hitter scenery and utilizing some pretty demanding weather. DR is turned off for this skin and scenario. Also...no issues with the JV/MJ DAK so far in 3.4.9.18400.

    Back on the line... OK. Went live yesterday PM, uploaded and installed the new P3D and plugging things back in to the real world. Thought I'd share a couple of pics taken from the "front yard". Actually, these shots are taken from a point about 200 meters from my spot, looking back at the front yard. We are very fortunate to find this spot. This particular point is deep enough for the whales to come in very close. Kind of unbelievable that we are really living on this cliff overlooking my favorite ocean. I'll post up some update shots of works in progress that filled my time for the last three weeks while I was on sabbatical.

    BendyFlyer, since you seem to enjoy fixing up and improving aircraft, why not invest a few dollars in the Airwrench utility. As long as you have good data about the aircraft engine and performance, you can easily generate proper flight models for these aircraft that hits the performance numbers in all flight phases. Afterwards you can tweak the flight model for the handling you think is most appropriate for the make. Now there is also packaged with that utility an GUI interface that allows tweaking by air file table with just point and click on graphic interfaces. Hard to beat these FM results for just ~$24 US.

    So, decided to pay homage to my old 1989 Bayliner Capri 1900 bowrider, which I LOVED! GREAT lines, and an incredibly distinctly late 80's paint and trim scheme. (look it up in Google images! LOL) This boat looked it's best sitting in warm shallow turquoise water, anchored just off a white sand beach! So, I present Miltons Turbo Mallard in the livery of the fictitious "CAPRI" Air, which, in the spirit of those ubiquitous red double decker "City Sightseeing" buses found in so many holiday destinations worldwide, can be found anywhere it's warm, sunny, and well... where there are sandy beaches and tropical islands! Again.. thank you Milton!

    I actually went exploring yesterday. Walked down this path a few hundred feet and ran across this huge wet thing with some really grainy stuff running along the edge. I think it was the Pacific Ocean. Funny thing Cees, we get attached to the tech with the real time weather engines or nav data and we forget to take time and smell the salt air. I am missing the work related data, but I can update to V4 next week...or maybe even the week after. In the meantime, I'm re-connecting to my 35 year love affair with the ocean. Will post up some pics when I patch back in to the inter web thingy.

    The re-location out of CA has settled into it's second week at the new home/studio. Just thought I'd post up a tiny update. Still no internet until Sept 23...hopefully of this year...lol. Things move slow here. Working on modeling and other bits that don't need online assistance. That leaves things pretty thin. I check in from the coffee shop daily, so I'll get any bumps that come my way. Carry on....:very_drunk:

    I agree Sir. JHW was a good friend, an amazing talent. I remember when he first posted his project at CalClassic. The -049 was 250,000 polys and looked awesome. Then, we had to break the news that there were poly limits for FS9 aircraft. :-) I have his -049 and still fly it on occasion. I look forward to the A2A release bringing the -049 to today's standards. Well done!
