    Any and all things aviation. Im an A&P mechanic with an IA. Private pilot but no medical cert. Havn't flown as PIC for about 10 years but frequently go up for test flights after maintenance.

  2. I'd have loved to have attended this... Joe is so weird looking but soooo cool. Yeah, it's very long... almost 2 hours. At least check "Is she really going out with him" @ 1:34:00... just a delightful version. The hits are @: 4:30 15:00 43:00 1:21:00 (and that's where I stopped... still more after) BTW... he's just 3 months older than me.
  3. It looks really good and I will probably get it but there seems to be nothing happening for equivalent opposition, i.e. the Cobra / Apache: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=243071 There is a Mod: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3308112/?sphrase_id=2685414 As for the Cobra: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=229471 This issue is where DCS somewhat falls flat for me... they bring out these amazing modules but there is no equivalent opposition or there are missing aircraft to fill the concept. i.e: MiG 21, MiG 19 needs a Phantom or Thud WWII needs dedicated ground attack aircraft / bombers. Mig 15 / F 86 is pretty good for Korean era but I'm still hoping for some carrier action. Still... the premier combat flight sim at present.

  5. Here's a quick rendition for you to take a look. v_!_JG1_AlbatrosD5_Veltjens.dds
  6. Hi Velts, I would be glad to help but The DudeWG has already done a historical skin: Here is the Albatros D.Va of Ltn. Josef Veltjens of Jasta 18 Here's the link to the thread: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/58560-ad5-4k-skins-from-the-dude/?tab=comments#comment-916083 Do you want it with the blue fuselage with the rest as your first post? Or do you want to do the skin yourself? You could just copy / paste the Dude's fuselage over (that's what I would do... I'd just be sure to give him credit for it). Again... I'm happy to be of whatever assistance I can. EDIT: aw snap... looks like the link is dead... Here's the active links: http://www.mediafire.com/file/jz2mf8nhpy39783/AD5_J15_Veltjens.dds/file http://www.mediafire.com/file/z0g5a726e0fccju/AD5_J18_Veltjens.dds/file

    Tank skins

    Hi Gen, The germans also used a Balkenkreutz identification panel: https://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/de^gvrd.html It would have to be quite a bit larger than what you have though, in order to be visible to overflying aircraft in my experience. This is on a Pz II, I think and covers the whole aft deck: https://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/d/de^panzer.jpg
  8. Right on 'Lead and Lady
  9. I assume you're talking about the merge. Going vertical when bounced from the 6 doesn't seem like a good idea... or am I wrong?
  10. I count myself lucky not to be singing about the unemployment line... yet. Beautiful version by Shaw:
  11. flying circus should i buy it

      Hi Velt,

      I would say yes if you can afford it. It does have issues and nobody has any idea if it will be expanded in the future. That being said, it's a lot of fun and is the only WWI sim JG1 is currently using. Many of us still have Rise of Flight still installed but as far as I know nobody is actively flying it at this point.

  12. Here's a Mod that automatically re-starts recording when it' reached the max size and shuts off. I don't think it needs Mods on and I also think it will still do an acmi file for Tacview: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/51226-il-2-great-battles-recorder/
  13. IMHO... yes, they should have your Jasta colors present. The areas of which are your choice.
