Tom, love your art collection showing the great WWI ace in all his glory. And please do post some pics of your flying room once your cleaning tasks are done.

MFair, I am terribly impressed and more than a little jealous of your WOFF man cave. I do most of my flying on the same computer I work at in my consulting firm's office. Because my home is an hour away, I keep a room in the office (an old house and former law office) and fly in the evenings when I stay in town. So my rig is a basic one (23" screen and X53 joystick and throttle) with Lou's maps on a laptop. All of this is surrounded by a clutter of files and paperwork!

Oh, I will guys. Had to sell the car and mow the grass today, just got out of the shower, have to support my brother-in-law as he is planning to head for NYC and try to interest galleries in his art work.

Raine, you have my sympathies. One reason why I can't get any stick time is just that - my consulting firm tells me what an important part of the company I am, but they keep moving further from my home! (Is that what they call cognitive dissonance?) It's 33 miles now, right through downtown Pittsburgh - no reasonable way around it. All this talk of greenhouse gases, and all this effort being put into self-driving cars - and I wouldn't trust one as far as I could throw it - for Pete's sake, just keep improving "teh intarwebz" and I wont' have to drive at all! Criminee, I had a job working with the original designer of (at the time) the largest hydro generators in the world, and we just used Skype and a headset, shared screens and sent files and talked, and that's all we needed to do!

Rant off. You may now resume nice pictures of your flying rooms. My beloved left a duster in here, I think that is a hint of some sort... It's yellow, maybe she wants me to know that's her favorite color... But that ain't happening tonight, too much to do and none of it for me...

Well, a long time ago I promised to show you some pictures. Well, here we go, I hope. Over the winter, I managed to assemble a 4D Famemaster Saturn V, something I've wanted for quite a while. Maybe now I can get some stick time, but I really wanted to get that done, as it's'way past its popularity curve and I didn't want to miss it. So here we go!

Maybe I can get back and add some comment to some of these. But now It's bed time!

Best to all,

Tom

Very nice indeed Tom. And as Mark points out, you really do cover the history of aviation in that collection.

Thanks all! Though I do wonder what happened that I can't upload an image directly from my computer. That was the plan, though, to span history with some iconic models. I was 13-1/2 in July of 1969. I built the Revell Saturn V then, in 1/96 scale. My grandad was born in 1903, my other grandparents around that time. Isn't it amazing that in 66 years we went from the Wright Brothers to a moon landing? Now we routinely launch crews to the Space Station and nobody bats an eye. Starman made a bit of a splash, but robotic exploration seems to give the most bang for the buck, to be sure - and it's a whole lot safer!

I'm off to quaff a root beer with Snoopy! (actually I gotta work...)

Best to you all,

Tom

Tom, you can upload images from you computer into SimHQ forum posts but you must do it as an attachment to the post. If you use the Full Editor when posting you will see the attachment option. It's a rather clunky affair to be honest.

The current evolution of my pit..a never ending work in progress.

Started a major rebuild of the side panels last fall.

Getting ready for WOTR and Dayton WW1 Rendezvous.

[Linked Image]

Last night I had the chance to enjoy a new WOFF experience.
I was able to run WOFF with the lights out in the room.
In a dark room with only the monitors and panels, immersion was stepped up yet another notch.

Well... I have been trawling the internet for ages... looking for the perfect P3D/WOFF/DCS/IL2 cockpit... you just put it in front of me. Do you have any plans drawn up for this? I would love to reproduce this in my basement.

Please...please... please say you do. LOL!

Wow, it’s like someone put an F-22 cockpit into a SPAD. Someone help me pick up my jaw off the floor because I’m running out of drool.
