    Avro Anson in CLoD?

    I like that idea, but let's leave Hans behind...
  2. Don't know if it's the right place to post this, but I had to share this Amazon listing. The reviewer comments and the questions are hilarious: https://www.amazon.com/Datamancer-Sojourner-Keyboard-length-braided/dp/B00MJ3M91E/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1515422108&sr=8-6&keywords=datamancer+keyboard

    Coming back to the kennel!

    ROF or 1946, it doesn't matter. I can't hit anything, especially when it's moving. Been home for a week and it still hasn't sunk in that I don't have a job to go to. Can't decide if I like this or not. What do I do with the rest of my life, and what do I want to be when I grow up? Is growing up mandatory? I was fooling around with CLoD yesterday, patrolling the channel in my Spitty, when I met up with some Ju-88s who treated me rudely. One of the tail gunners knocked out my engine, so I figured I'd just glide down and ditch. There was a passing convoy of allied ships, and my plan was to ditch near one them and get picked up. But no, the ship just steamed on without so much as a blast of the fog horn. Don't these ship captains know the International Protocols for Treatment of Downed Spitty Pilots? And haven't they seen the movie Dunkirk? Sheesh....

    Out of my league, but cool to see this. That guy must have put some serious engineering effort in this thing.
  5. I really like the Anson (How can you not like a plane called Faithful Annie?). The CLoD splash screen shows a teaser Anson, and supposedly there's an AI version in the game somewhere, but danged if I can find it. And do the devs have any plans for a flyable version?

    Fantastic article on the Blenheim

    Wow, that was a good read. Thanks for sharing.

    Getting back into the saddle with some offline flying in 1946. My gunnery is back to where it was a few years ago: I can't hit the broad side of a zeppelin.

    Kennedy Steve: JFK Ground Controller

    I listened to this type of banter for 17 years in Newark. It was never boring.

    Thanks, FT. Flight video here: The landing gear are plug-in struts for display only, removed for flying.

    This project was about 4 or 5 years in the making. It's a modified version of the Guillow's 27 inch kit. I ended up replacing so much of the kit wood and plastic parts, it was almost a scratch build! She flies pretty well. All up weight about 7 ounces.

    Retired yesterday. Installed a new video card (Radeon 580) and it seems to have solved the issues with DCS and BoS. So there may be some life left in my aging PC. I hope to join the Dogz for some action soon. Still in disbelief that I'm now officially an Old Fart. Don't know what the future holds, but it will start with a pint of Guinness.

    Got things sorted out with ChkMods. Can someone give me the current server addresses? Do we still have the open dogfight server? Thanks.
