    Keeping busy

    Not much time for flying.

    Here's a tease, on one project I'm working on...all 3D gauges...

    Easy guess.

    In my version of the Ju88C-2. Also pretty sure the same panel fits right into the C-4. Pretty much other Ju88 versions, used their own gauge layouts.

    The C-2 also sports 3D guns, in the VC.

    Appreciate the kind words.

    Simply trying to build up the correct office. Few photos, here's the one I'm working with...

    The one we have here in town is a D model, but some of these images may still be useful.

    The little red dots are a modern addition to warn of the radiation hazard.

    Thanks! Yep, the D-1 is a different animal, much later.

    The C-2 is more like a caveman version, first 88 heavy fighter, put into production. Built using high time A-1 bomber airframes. No radar, but was okayed for the first 'Intruder' sortes. Moonlight hunting, at it's best, sitting in that cramed full cockpit. Still plenty of work to go.

    Is that reflective glass on those instruments? How did you do that / what settings (gmax or otherwise) did you use?

    Yes, sir...gmax material. Here's the settings I use...note that it's not shown in the screenshot, but I have shineness and reflectiveness checked. If you want the color numbers, I'll get 'em for you.

    You bet, Frosty! Anytime.

    I kinda plan on little twicks on it, to see if it gets any better. Actually get 'glare' off the glass...seems more realistic...to me, anyway.

    Well crossram, hope it turns out as good as the CFS2 version did! Remember building that model, using 1's and zero's,lol

  17. #17
    Oh, yeah! Pain. (Miss those clickable gauges.)

    Thought I had the market on the C2...now everybody has one.
    (Gmax is alot easier to deal with...easy to get wild with it.)

    I'm finally getting back into things. Got a little side-tracked...

    Spent a bit of time on Gilze-Rijen. Then, between a heart attack, a broken rib w/ a collasped lung, and finally off to a broken hip...
    Mostly my fault...get POed, get drunk, then take a fall, on the broken parts. (Never said I was a nice guy. Am human, though!)

    So, yeah, slowly getting back.

    Well that's one hell of a "little side track Ted" Glad you are on on the mend though!

    Yeah, buddy. Thanks!

    Stuck using a walker, for now, and no idea when I can toss it. Was told maybe up to six months. Ain't going for it, and I'll work it out. I'm not 'that' easy...just have to work at it.

    Still kinda lucky, going by what I was told some 30 years ago...that I'd be lucky if I still had both legs, by the time I was 65.
    I'm 72 now.
