SHGP Virtual Airshows - Spitfire MkIA

For this months virtual airshow display I have gone for the Spitfire MkIA. This video is much shorter than my normal 'episodes' as I have been working mostly on a virtual Flying Legends project (more on that later) and that has been taking up most of my time. The video still features the usual real ...

Re: 80 Years of the Air Cadets

6 years in 208 North Leeds Sqn and then 12 years regular RAF after. Camps - Northolt x 2, Beckingham training area, Digby, Leuchars and Shawbury.
Trips in Jetstream and Griffin as well as a few trips on Tutors and solo on the Vigilant. I had hops on all of 32 (TR)'s types and Chinook in later years.

Re: SHGP Virtual Airshows - AVRO Lancaster

Another enjoyable episode and I know how much time goes into this. Looking forward to part 2. Thank you. Yes on average around a month of work per 30 minute video, depending on how much i can fit in around work and other things. I'm thinking of doing a few shorter cinematic style vids after this on...

Re: Duxford Virtual Airshow Display Project - Curtis P-40C Tomahawk II

Very enjoyable watch, must have taken quite a bit of work! I use DCS for something similar. Thank you i'm glad you enjoyed it. Yes it was a long project but most of the time was learning new software and playing with audio, which I had no experience of prior. The next ones I do should be a lot quic...

I'm not the best person to ask. I tagged along with my little group and wasn't involved in the organising. The chap who did organise it is on here and should be able to answer. I can't remember what his avatar is unfortunately.

Chateaudun Museum

Back in June I was part of a small group who were granted access to the museum at Chateaudun. The museum was very cramped and cluttered making photography difficult and 'stitching' was required. There were a number of very interesting machines in there and if you're a Jag or Mirage fan then a visit ...
