Will be out of touch with a computer till Dec 5... back in Indio at home...
So no real hurry on anything... Catch you then...
I hope to upgrade the crew once i can find some time. Animated lims of the pilot with, possibly, a throttle arm that will only reach for the throttle if throttle is applied ( i suppose a tricky one.... ) and a movable visor, that sort of thing.
@ Milton : thanks for the new window frames ! :salute: ( i'm preparing an email re the cockpit textures )
This one is done in memory of Gary Nagel who died October 5, 1998 during the Mt. Edna Fire. I was down at the base watching him reload a couple hours prior. Dedicated to a hero. :salute:
I have been watching this project from the shadows, wow ! You guys are collaborating on something truly special !!! Mike ;)
Just doing some catch-up. Great work by everyone involved so far!! :applause::applause::applause::applause:
Fire Bombing all day has built up a nice retardant stain on 76
Nice graduation on the stain, but I think the first 1/4 or so of the bay would have less stain going up the fuselage sides as the slipstream would be tearing more of the solids backward.
Just an educated guess on my part of course, it's been a while since I looked at the birds at Hemet or they visited Rialto.
