  1. Yak 9's...New Zealands Full Noise Tigercat I gather there are classes. Plenty of jets and post ww2 props as well. Cheers Matty
  2. I remember Wolfenstein when it first came out. When my nurse or I would see something amazing, or shocking we'd mimic the German soldiers from the game ' Mein Leben'. I used to enjoy Day of Defeat before it went to Stream. Some great custom maps and scenarios where working as a team really counted. Matty
  3. I suspect most of these games are primarily recruiting tools. Especially Call Of Duty...which my youngest daughter played with her friends until they discovered Fortnite. I'll refrain from linking to info from various searches of US Military Industrial Complex and video gaming as it gets more political in nature...not really LSP content. How involved the military is in gaming seems fairly controversial. When I did full time service on a base we used to all play CounterStrike on a LAN in large teams. It was an absolute hoot. I have trained on a legit military video system that uses our various small arms shooting laser rounds on a screen that can detect data from the gun and the round. Recoil via compressed gas. It was mainly for target practice (training for smooth trigger pull, less barrel movement, aim points etc) but there were a few scenarios that could be programmed into it. I had fun with a MAG58 GPMG one night...unlimited ammo...it was ridiculous but we all had fun. Matty
  4. OK. Locking this down in accordance with our Rules of the Road.
  5. Sorry to hear such terrible news. Kiwis are like family. Hard to believe the scale of this catastrophe and misery. Matty
  6. I think they say it becasue they know it's actually not true and there's no robust peer reviewed evidence to support it. It's definitely a calculated CYA language. What I find objectionable about it, is that in a roundabout way, people who don't know any better don't understand the difference between CYA claims and the real deal. We used to have a show called 'The Checkout' here in Aus. They were able to show that some companies offered pseduoscientific services that would guarantee a research finding in keeping with advertising. Nothing that would withstand credible scientific scrutiny. Here's one of their funnier ones.
  7. I don't myself and am highly skeptical about the efficacy of any product that is sold with weasel out marketing clauses like 'can, may, could, might, can assist with, boosts'. I used to watch ABC's The Checkout and they exposed a lot of snake oil companies exploiting peoples best intentions. The TGA was as toothless as ASIC. To ascertain efficacy I'd recommend chatting to an orthopaedic surgeon. That's their field of expertise. Matty

    Incredible mate. Thanks for posting. Matty
  9. I'm not surprised that Erik Brown saw what had happened and surmised pretty quickly why. Experience counts. What is interesting is that he also said he'd seen it happen before and that it was a common pilot error. That to me is worthy of some further analysis. Is there indeed some factor that's at work here? It's necessary to be held accountable for the untimely deaths of those people but I'm not sure that process is useful for helping anyone understand why such a pilot errors occur and moreover how to prevent them.

  10. We're LSP. Like Kev said, our core business is LSP's. I can understand your argument but it's not a road this site would go down, especially when there's so many other sites that do offer that service. We had great debate about the non-LSP forum. We've actively chosen to not make it part of the build forums...again to emphasise our focus on LSP's. HTH Matty
  11. We've been checking in the staff forums and no one appears to have touched your content Alan. Perhaps it has something to do with our recent server malfunction? I also pruned your post to Ron. I won't let that kind of public response become in any sense a notionally acceptable tone of posting on LSP. 100% never to volunteer staff but also to or any member. We're not here to bust anyone's balls but to be helpful. We have our way of doing things and we expect everyone to be civil with each other. I'm not chastising you just lamenting you didn't check in with us first before reaching deep into the amygdala. Matty
  12. IIRC I found similar issues to other modellers when fitting the canopy using this resin set. Something to do with the hinge mechanism, canopy rails and seat. HTH. Matty
  13. Hoping he's OK and getting better soon. Matty
