Another ponder was made that deserves a response because it is also a wise observation. The man hours for producing the virtual aircraft are well below those of the real airplanes they duplicate, but the number of people producing the virtual version are so vastly smaller than who produced the real ones that the person-hours might well be the same now -- perhaps larger even! I can assure everyone that the compensation for making the virtual stuff is so vastly smaller than producing and flying the real ones that it is stark. For me, about one or two years is about all I can handle before needing a break from it. Just too many other irons in the fire that pay bills and define careers. I'm on another break period now so I hope no one thinks my remarks are self-serving.
You see it with every release: those who offer sincere and helpful inputs, those who nit pick, and those who just outrightly troll just to try to upset the apple cart for reasons only said person can truly explain but rarely feel inclined to! I think all of us should stand back and apprecaite the level of the artwork in what we see today. Frankly, it has never been finer across the board than it is right now. We should enjoy the moment and hope it continues to get better. I certainly think the bar is going to get higher with this F-86 being worked on. I think people will enjoy it and wish those making it all success.
