Re: Return of the Welkin

Very nice! Well done! :dancer: I must show my ignorance of this mark now by admitting I had never heard of it before and had to go Googling images and text info. I had of course heard of the Whirlwind but never the Welkin. It certainly seems like a very interesting aircraft built for a specific role...

Re: The ideal CB flypast?

What about a FAA flight too (that's Fleet Air Arm not that yankee outfit! :lol: ) coupled with Coastal Command.

You could have Vampires, Vixens, Venoms, Buccs, Sea Hawks etc. and for the heavier side a Shack, Nimrod and Sunderland!

Re: RAF Gaydon...

Yeah I remember a toy shop like that from my youth too. They had a big display in the window and three pushbuttons on the window ledge outside so that you could run one of the three active tracks. There always seemed to be a greasy smear across the window at kiddie nose height too for some reason! :...

Re: Growler (Shack) Mk 2

Anyone know if this is correct: Decision Height Warning Lights - Green (Above) Orange(At or Near) Red (Under) Thinking about other British military AC with warning lights that I have in my hangar that sounds right to me. They look something like this .... V O ^ ...or as near as I can get with text....

Re: RAF Fylingdales and its cliche

No Golfballs indeed. They were dismantled several years ago....probably more than 10 years, and replaced with the current set up. So that's why I couldn't find them on Google Earth the other day when I was trying to show them to my Canadian wife! I guess you lose touch with some things when you are...

Re: Self installers?

I guess I am firmly in the 'don't like self installers' camp for the reasons others have stated (it's sometimes a pain to get rid of AC if you decide you no longer want them in the game). :-( However, there are a lot of FS9/X owners out there who haven't a clue when it comes to adding AC and they ce...

Re: Brabazon released on avsim etc.

In the near future I have the Short Singapore 1 ready - the prototype of a long series of flying boats from Short, including the Calcutta, Kent and Singapore II/III. Does that long series include the Sunderland perchance? :worried: :prayer: I have been searching long and hard for a late model FS200...

Re: Some new Skysim Sea Vixen pictures!!!!

I agree with top centre as it shows the texture of the matt black paint better (a lot of the old gauges had that orange peel look to them to reduce glare) although bottom right is a close second as it gives a bit of highlight without biasing the lighting direction (which some of the others do).

Re: de havilland DH98 Mosquito

I have been looking for a decent Mozzie for a long time and I am eagerly awaiting the release of this one! :welldone: I already have a few CBFS aircraft in my hangar (mostly Rick's stuff, Chipmunk, T.21, Dragon/Rapide etc.) so I know that this is going to be a stunner when it comes out. Keep up the ...
