    Hi Ferry. Oops, this thread "dropped off my scan", so to speak, and then I cleaned out my attachments. Yes, that was (is) Santa Maria. The kit is a 1/90 scale by Revell, from many years ago. I've had it for a couple decades, and started working on it a few months ago. It's interesting, for a Flight Sim guy, my "historical passion" has probably leaned a bit more towards ships than planes, but just barely... :) I'm up to the hard part now - the rigging...

    I have not tried it, but the utility does look interesting. I lost count of all the utility programs I have downloaded/installed throughout the past 10 yrs. But I look at AVSIM, Flightsim, and occasionally Simiviation almost every day. Most days there isn't much that interests me, but sometimes I see an unusual offering. Not in this particular case, obviously, but whenever there is a USN-related file listed, that always gets my attention.:encouragement: NC

    Will press on here as I think we are good on the Fiat. Don't rush to conclusions on this one. It's a bit tricky...

    The database is quite the undertaking John. Something I can't quite seem to get motivated to do! Good luck with that.:encouragement: No means an expert here, but I would agree with the 4 bays. On the triangular portion at the tip, even though it is enclosed, doesn't there have to be a section of wing top and bottom to be a bay? Like this I presume?

    On the V600, you can have the "dust removal" or the "digital ice" option selected, but not both. Strange thing is, I tried the ice option, but it didn't seem to do anything at all. After that, I couldn't get the dust removal option to work anymore either. Obviously more experimentation is needed.

    I think Icarus simulations released a Buffalo for FS9, and I had it at one time. No longer though. A FSX native model would be great! :encouragement: NC

    I never went to FSX as my old comps never were up to it and I really can't be buying a new comp just to run a sim. So, I've stayed with FS9, preferring to do the vintage Cal Classic late 50s early 60s stuff. Almost a month ago, I bought a new comp to replace my old one which was having "issues" after a power surge. Wiped out the surge protector, but the comp would still work about 2/3 of the time. My new specs are: Intel Core i5 4460 quad core 3.2ghz 64bit 8g ddr3 sdram memory Geforce GT-730 2g 1T hard drive. FS9 and all my addons haven't thrown anything at me yet that made it have a drop in FPS (I stay locked at 25fps for multiplayer purposes)

    There is an option called "dust removal". It's pretty good. On the "medium" setting, the big white spot at upper right was reduced to a tiny white spot, and all the rest were gone. Doing a bunch of test runs, seeing what all the other options do...

    My new scanner came in today. Found a negative of a pic I had previously scanned as a 3X5 print. I'm very excited now. Here are the two. The first is the scanned in print, and the second is the negative I scanned ten minutes ago. Neither image has been edited, except to resize each to 1100x700. I see I have some "artifacts" on the new one, maybe some dust or some such on either the negative or the scanner glass. I scanned the negative at 2400 dpi, which is less than half of what this scanner is capable of. Cool beans.

    A couple years ago, somebody in the FSX forum tried to make a similar case with regard to repaints. His theory being that “amateur repainters” were making the products from those fine payware outfits “look bad”, and in fact may even be “hurting sales”. He suggested that these less talented individuals should either work harder at making better paints, of just leave such work to the “designated experts” out there. The response he received was, well, entertaining, until the lock... :)

    Welcome back Mike. You know how those translators can bungle up things! Maybe BG can translate for us as the text was lifted from this page.
