And it would be slightly more realistic than even Oleg's new game.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Sometimes I realy wonder how it would be to be filthy rich. I think I'd buy a big chunk of forest near where I live ,maybe clear out a small landing strip, build a cabin outa the trees, plant a few food plots,shoot some deer, turkeys and all the other edible critters running round, maybe pick up a p-51 , p-40, a6m2, maybe a 109, coule tanks , maybe hedi klum, andlive happily ever after in my hand built cabin with my rusty old planes .

It's simply a development of my photoshop skills. The subjects I use make being creative easy, therefore freeing up brain % for learning the software. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

I am however, still not satisfied. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Thanks for the comments on my sig. I'm the most pleased with this one than I have been with the last few. I spent some time on the colours and desaturation tools before I finished with this one. Also I found angling the plane as I have conveys a sense of action.

Always learning Photoshop. I may break into screen shot art at some point.

Also I would probably buy me an oleg maddox, and then keep him in a small pit until he added the b-17 and all the other planes we should have in the sim and well I'd pay those copyright things off for the navy planes ( we all know which ones I mean) and well then I'd pay a neiborhood kid to fly the zero while I chased after him in the p-40 or one of you guys could replace the little kid if ya liked. IT must be nice to be tht rich....

You can go up to Ottawa and visit the National Aviation Museum. From there you can then go across the river to the Gatineau airport to Mike Potter's hanger and see flying a/c &gt;

WACO Taperwing
DeHavilland Tiger Moth
Beech 17 Staggerwing
Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk
Supermarine Spitfire MkXVI
North American P-51D Mustang
North American Harvard MK4
DeHaviland DHC-2 Beaver

If you are lucky, the Spit or P-51 or both might be flying as I see them quite often.

That sig of yours is quite nice. You are right, the angle gives a sense of action. That's what I love about it. What you've done with the colrs is also great. It looks more realistic than the game. It would be interesting to see it in serpia.

If you don't mind a little constructive critisism, there's only one thing that would make an improvement: bf109g2
