    Thank you much. And thanks for going low-viz on the insignias. Looks more lethal that way. :ernaehrung004:

    Nice Lancaster! I'm getting very tempted to get the model myself :-)

    Without checking elsewhere do the Kiwi birds on the wing insignias typically point out or in? ... Went and checked anyway, they seem to face forwards in all positions. :ernaehrung004:

    Thanks Dave! From what I have read so was the flat panelled bomb aimer position a request from the RAF and not something Avro put on it themselves. The RAF did not like the curved Plexiglas dome on the Lancaster because of visual distortion. I agree the Lincoln would have looked smarter with the Lancaster type nose. The error on the number was fixed for a few weeks ago :-) I just did not want to make new screenshots..

    Rob has given us an impressive lineup of DH Vampire and Venom aircraft, the one missing is a RAF nightfighter Venom :-) The Venom NF.3 looks pretty much the same as the last of the Naval Sea Venoms with the big exception of the hook and fairing. Just to see how the Sea Venom looks like a NF.3 I have done a quick RAF 151 Sqn scheme for it. Rather easy to judge which part of the UK it was based in...

    Alphasim and now Virtavia have made a long list of marvellous early post war combat aircraft. Yes they are not perfect, but which other company would make these very interesting, but close to forgotten military aircraft? We are quick to point out errors, thanks Phil and co for making these aircraft! One of my favourites is their Avro Lincoln. The ultimate evolution of the Lancaster. Even if it flew longer, faster and with more bombs and had better armament than the Lancaster it might be described as obsolete even before entry into service compared to the US B-29. To be fair, at the time in a situation with all out war with Germany it must have been close to impossible with the resources available to build and bring a B-29 type project into service for the British. After all their...

    I see that DTG has pushed the E-2C update. Everything on the E-2C should work now. All they wanted was the ailerons corrected. Everything else was a bonus to them. Not mentioned because we didn't mention it to them (since they aren't keen on schemes for their released versions) is the remapped rudders. :ernaehrung004:

    If you read this entire thread and you will see that this E-2C does not belong to Virtavia, it belongs Dovetail Games on Steam. And as such it has been encrypted to only work on their version of FSX and not the old boxed FSX or P3D. Again, ... sorry. And sorry again, I don't paint fiction (unless it's a Mirage). :ernaehrung004:

    TAD means Temporary Additional Duty. Similar if not the same as what we called TDY in the Army. What about the Virtavia EA-6B if the Razbam one is getting long in the tooth? :ernaehrung004:

    I'm waiting for Phil to get the go-ahead from DTG before he sends me the texture masters. My part of the textures are finished, just waiting for the panel line and stencil layers. The Israel Air Force E-2C were painted in the two grays the F-15s were painted in so not just a matter of painting on the Star of David insignia. Something you should realize thought, this model only works in the FSX-SE version from Dovetail Games via Steam. On sale now by the way. :ernaehrung004:

    DaveQ has done a HMS Victorious Sea Venom with my new HD paintkit (I made a RAN repaint). It looks jolly good in HD With additional details as correct rivets stencils and other decals. I dont think he ever released it.

    Hardly. We're just getting started. You chose to bug out too soon. Please don't ruin it for the rest of everyone else. Things are getting fixed through this discussion. No spiral downward. I'm trying to bring positive reports with each post. Let it run the normal 10 days please. :ernaehrung004:

    The vertical fins themselves were not mirrored. They were reversed on the starboard sides which is an inconvenience but is not the end of the world and certainly would not put a stop to repaints. The issue was that one texture for the back half of the fin, the moving split rudder, had been reused for all four surfaces. This worked perfectly for the customer's requirements, and anyone who just wanted to fly it as is, but not so much for us repainters. Anything that takes up half the surface us going to have some unusual markings in it so that had to be fixed if any repaints were going to happen. A couple fellow simmers on FB pointed this out to me and I forwarded their example images to Phil. Based on the new MDL file I checked out last night that has issue has been corrected. ...

    I might remember wrong but wasn't it the other way around with the TSR2 being better at more or less everything compared to the Tornado except maybe fighter manoeuvrability? Killing the TSR2 was a political decision, to me it looks like the British politicians tried their very best at ruining the proud British aviation industry in the decades after the war. To be fair, reliability would also probably have been a major issue as the aircraft was to advanced for its time, just as the F-111, and it might have proved to costly for the RAF to get the TSR.2 into a combat ready warplane.

    OK, so my apologies to all. Apparently DTG did put in some sort of encryption so that it will only work on their Steam version of FSX. I really thought that since the beta copy worked in all that the final release would as well. I'll go back to the paint booth now. :ernaehrung004:
