    A big piece of my childhood has died. Of all the Star Trek characters that ever were, Mr. Spock was my favorite. Rest in peace Mr. Nimoy, you are gone, but never forgotten.

    I think the bigger difference between the two would be gauge lighting technique. Panel 1 would use floodlights and UV lights to make radium markings on the gauges glow. Panel 2 uses eyebrows that would contain incandescent light bulbs to illuminate the gauges. Basically, you have two different eras. Panel 1 is definitely 1930's-40's, while panel 2 would be more appropriate for post-war uses.

    Seems to me when this repaint was released there was discussion about the orientation of the markings. Unless I am mistaken, the real aircraft upon which this paint was based also featured the inaccurate orientation.

    Σας ευχαριστώ πολύ, mvg3d :encouragement: I would very much like to do an Italian variant, indeed it would be a pleasure. So far, my search for reference material has been fruitless - any HU would be most welcome. EDIT: Same applies to New Zealand paint scheme - much appreciate any help.

    Interesting thing about SOH, there are a lot of talented people here who create payware quality add-ons and then give them to us for free. I stand in awe of their talent and generosity.

    stansdds replied to a thread 2015 Daytona 500 in Racer's Paddock
    I don't think so. Daytona and Talladega are the two tracks where you expect the cars to do 200 mph. Would the racing be the same at 175 mph? Probably, but the race would also take more time. With the way the rules are now, the super speedways will be a test of the driver's skills at high speeds. I'm sure Brian France will make some changes as the 500 was such a good race, but there was not the 25-car pile up that some people just have to have.

    The actual race was really, really good, best Daytona 500 I've seen in a while. Lots of side-by-side and three-car-wide racing all day long. I hope Brian France does not introduce any new rules to change the cars for the super speedways.

    I believe the developers involved in projects such as Golden Age Era probably visualized what could be a totally new sim experience. The concept is entirely viable for both FS2004 and X, and would evolve as a truly new Flight Simulator. It would be a truly massive undertaking, but ahhh!..what if? As Willy rightly reminds us, it's probably targeted towards a limited audience. But there are those of us who live in hope, and I might add with much gratitude; the inspired work of good folk such as that seen here by Ed Moore, Garry Smith and Tom Gibson at Calclassics is a brave inspiration and example to us all :-)

    MMMMMM! What a pretty little autogyro - they can be great fun to fly! Ed: Just thinking; the Golden Age Hawaii scenery you mentioned would also provide a splendid backdrop for Milton's awesome looking Grumman Mallard when the time comes. Thank you so much for the many generous contributions from yourself and team. Of course we're interested in these pretty damsels!!! :jump:
