    Petrolheads are petrolheads wherever you go, even if the cylinders in the ride of choice of some petrolheads number in the 20s. So with that in mind, above I present a number of composited screenshots from my flight sim days. All images are a composition of photoshop painting, real world photography and simulation screen shots. A few of the shots in there I am quite proud of, some are better than others. There's also a couple of gun-cam GIF animations and some screenshots of a Fokker Dr1 I was modeling for a WW1 sim that got canceled about 7 years ago.

    The image of the F6F5 over the ocean in the sunrise with the poem underneath it was originally much larger and is hanging in a long time sim-buddy's den as it was to commemorate his cousin who disappeared in an F6F5 in 1945 near Okinawa.

    Hope you all enjoy!

    Very intriguing, you 'built' your own plane, way cool. Some excellent imagery HWK, oh, and you should use those GIFs:sHa_thumb2:

    Yeah I rather enjoyed those GIFs :) And thanks very much for the kind words. The plane I was "building" was for a WW1 sim that was canceled before it got fully off the ground. Was going to be based on the Il-2 Sturmovik engine. I just happened to know one of the guys who was leading the project :) It was a lot of fun!
