    1. What model of P-40 is being flown here? Do you consider that choice rather odd? 2. The close up shots of the cockpit are not of a Hawk 87. They look more like a Hawk 81 or Hawk 75. 3. When Saunders finally finds a Zero, he is above and behind it and yet he confirms that it has the scoops which are below the cowl which he can't see. 4. Who is the actor playing Lt Saunders in this short film? - Ivan.

    Hello Aleatorylamp, The topic I was bringing up wasn't really abut mistakes. The silly thing is that even when folks actually see a mistake, seldom does anyone comment. In fact, the amount of feedback I have received over the years from people that I did not already know has been pretty minimal. The total number is probably around 5 or 6 and that includes you. I was thinking more of doing a LOT of research that is not even visible in the completed model. The Messerschmitt 109E I recently rebuilt is a pretty good example. The overall dimensions were pretty far off in the original AFX and yet I don't believe anyone noticed. I fixed what I thought were the biggest issues, but didn't feel like fixing everything I saw.

    In trying to refine a flight model to my own satisfaction and edit the visual models because of very slight inaccuracies, one has to wonder which is better? To build a very very small number (perhaps only one) really superb aeroplane or To build a few very good aeroplanes or To build many more pretty good aeroplanes that are each much better than what is currently available? Most of the audience cannot tell the difference in any case. Opinions? - Ivan.

    Here is an interesting short film I came across today. Mitsubishi Type Zero Fighter Versus Curtiss P-40 I believe it is worth watching. Perhaps you will see some of the interesting bits I saw. - Ivan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdZR7sH2Fng

    The service ceiling seems to have gotten considerably higher at 36,490 feet. Some of the behaviour didn't seem quite right on the climb though; Airspeed seemed too high. - Ivan.

    Hello Aleatorylamp, You will actually have the same problem with your BMP as with the PCX files. They all need to run from a fixed palette although you can alter the colours within the palette. I believe Hubbabubba uses Saint Paint to alter his palettes. I use GIMP. Regarding naming: I don't think that other than being 8.3 it matters what the file names are as long as they are R8 or BMP format. Once I had a working solution, I didn't bother experimenting much.
