    To break loose from a standstill where the shock struts are compressed requires about 80%, which on this aircraft amounts to 1,300 RPM and 29 inhg MAP, so that's still pretty high. If you have come to a stop gently and the struts are not compressed it's about 30%, or about 880 RPM and 14 inhg MAP. And with those settings, a slow but steady 8 mph taxi can be achieved. I'm not sure if 30% throttle is reasonable for that, but nobody in the real world measures piston engine power settings by percent except for cruise anyway, and even then its % BHP and not % throttle. 880 RPM and 14 inhg however, is quite reasonable. This compared to needing 3,000 RPM and 20+ inhg MAP to sustain a taxi before.

    Hi Friends, I made a repaint for the '310 in the livery used for the London/Capetown record 1938 attempt (failed, unfortunately the plane crashed after two days). The original plane has no turret and wings MGs and had a "solid" shorter nose. I used the Giuli's military version hoping in a future civil version......

    Master Andre, these are for CFS3 not the ETO expansion. Correct.. Thanks for the upload, i will adjust all of this to work in ETO 1.40. The CFS3 sim is quite different..ETO has Free_France ( not France..)

    RAF 107 Squadron in action.. Truly grateful for the shade/shine effects developed by the Masters for this. <Title>ETO Dieppe 107 Sq.Boston A20 Ground attack HH 611 <Overview>Your Squadron is to attack the German ground units and prevent them from opposing an invasion by over 5,000 Allied troops, mostly Canadians, who raid Dieppe, France. RAF 107 Squadron, flying Blenheims, then Bostons and, finally Mosquitos, subsequently took part in scores of raids, including raid on Dieppe on 19th August 1942 (its task on this occasion was to bomb hostile shore batteries and thus reduce enemy opposition to the landing force)

    One of the worst things about handling CFS3 aircraft on the ground is the ridiculous amount of power required to get them rolling for taxi. You'd think the wheels had sunken into eight inches of mud. I've been playing around lately with the early Spitfire's propeller, trying to get a working two pitch de Havilland prop instead of the constant speed model that they all have right now (promising results so far) and started messing with the low_speed_theory_limit value in the aircraft.cfg. This seems to change the effectiveness of the propeller at low airspeeds (what a thought!). Results so far seem to be that a value of about 8 produces reasonable results with no adverse effects that I have seen so far (almost all the aircraft seem to have that value set at 80). So if you're interested, try...

    Just found this while looking for something else. There's a lot of potential with our current Spitfire series to expand it by using alpha channels to remove parts and pylons to add different ones back -basically any part that isn't animated. For the Spits, wingtips, exhausts, cannon stubs, etc can all be removed (I've tested it) and just need a modeled part added back with a pylon. I even made custom muzzle flashes that were positioned so that the IXc model could appear to have guns firing from the appropriate places for a IXe - just replaced the inboard .303s with .50cals and moved the muzzle flash effect to show up in the right spot. A while back, Jaycee and I did some experiments with a clipped wing Vb, but we never finished and unfortunately I think he's moved on. But I'd be glad to...

    I have fallen into the Battle of France (air war) As many know I am being allowed to build for the ETO team, and have planned 100 Historical missions. to add to this (working for months so far on this) I am researching the air war in France 1939-40 And are amazed at what I have found. as brief as it was, it was intense . The french airman fought like lions in heat!! Out gunned, out Planed and out planned they still gave it their all in many cases..

    Get airborne!! We are under attack!! At De Kooy are 11 D.21s. They are devided in in three sections of 3 and one section of 2 aircraft. About 04.00 h in the morning, all D.21.s of 1e JAVA ar ordered to scramble. After a while they return to De Kooy to refuel. When the first six aircraft take off again and the last three are preparing for landing, there is an attack by nine German Messerschmidt Bf-109 aircraft.

    Love the shaders effects now developed for for this. the last picture under the Do217 really shows this off well. Thanks to the Masters for this. Operating from Redhill, as a part of the Northolt Wing, 12 Spitfires VB - at the time this version was an inferior aircraft to those which the unit encountered in combat. took off for the first patrol. Lead by S/Ldr Zumbach, Poles arrived over Dieppe at 10:11, and were met by intense flak. Down at the cost, mostly Canadian troops were already in a fierce battle. At the height of 8000 feet the unit was jumped by a number of German FW190s. In the ensuing scuffle some Poles engaged enemy fighters while others went after dive bombing Ju88s and Do 217s. After some 30 minute combat in good visibility and at 5000 feet, the squadron was withdrawn...
