Re: An end of an era

Andy, 1050ti is the best value for money but if you can muster the buck for 1060 (3GB or 6GB), go for it. Orr ... get Sparky's 1080ti for free as he needs a new one anyways :D Since I saw a nice discount at my local HW store I stretched up a bit and in the end went for MSI GeForce GTX 1060 3GT OC, ...

Re: An end of an era

Check you PSU can deal with a higher spec I checked the power draw of the old graphics card and in comparison with the 10xx series it's like a fully throttled T-34 against Toyota Prius hybrid. Even if it weren't for the massive graphic power progress, the new cards sure enough are more energy effic...

An end of an era

Gentlemen, pray, raise your glasses and hold a minute of silence for our fallen brother, my GTX 560ti who has been proclaimed KIA about an hour ago. You will be missed, my old friend. :Cry That said, I am afraid I won't make it for tonight's training and possibly for the sunday op. However, I am pla...

Re: TP promo video

Andy, For your info & entertainment, here's a promo video put together by Tiger back in 2007 using IL2. Might give you some ideas for your film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-n-B9R9LPM (ignore the comment about wrong Spits - we didn't have mark 1 spits or a BoB map in those days) That's exactly...

Re: TP promo video

Cool stuff Blackjack!
What I have in mind is more cinematic-like compilation of interesting moments, perhaps a sort of trailer, if you like. I shall try to record tonight's training (if I make it in the evening) then pick some of the highlights and see how it will work out.

TP promo video

Chaps, I've been thinking of creating a short video depicting TP flying activities of past months that aside from pure entertainment could potentially serve as a promo video for our squadron. However, so far I have no material recorded as my computer is not powerful enough to allow flying and record...

Re: A few bits of mine

Great job, Andy. Two questions: 1. Can you tell us the history of that particular a/c? 2. Did you camouflage your computer monitor housing? 1) it is a Fw-190 A-4 of major Karl Kennel as flown in May 1945 - nothing really special known about this particular plane as it was used at the very end of th...

Re: Airfix 1:48 Boulton Paul Defiant: commission build

Great work Charlie! Is the kit from the Airfix's new tools? I remember my dad building a JA-37 Viggen in 1:48 by Airfix a few years ago and he found the fitting and moulding quite challenging.

Re: A few bits of mine

Hey Andy nice work on what sounds like a very difficult build! I have just completed a 1:32 Mustank Mk1 Photo-recon (Hobby Boss kit), in 'flight mode' for a client so will post up some pics soon. I'm glad you wiped the dust in here, its dirtier than Hatter's pant drawer! Thanks Charlie, looking for...

Re: A few bits of mine

Let's wipe off the dust here, shall we? A friend of mine who is with Czech air force and currently undertaking the Search-and-rescue helicopter training asked me for building a model of one of their rides for his retiring commander. It is the Mil Mi-2 (NATO codename Hoplite), callsign 0711 of Aircra...

Re: VR freezing up in multi-player

Not a VR guy but one thing crrosses my mind: do you have the Il-2 installed on the HDD or the SSD (I assume you have your OS here too)? I know that it doesn't have exactly much in common with multiplayer issues, but I encountered similar bug with monitor screen in DCS. After I moved the DCS from my ...

Re: Feldwebel Eddie leaves Kalach

I´m not paying Kormas for you two, it would drive me bankrupt I do like a nice chicken korma, don't forget the poppadoms, naan bread and onion bajies. I just googled what that dish looks like. Damn, now I'm hungry for some Indian food. However, Korma (also known as Thor's Hammer) down here means be...
