    1. Tbar


      80 degrees .. you can have the snow!

  2. PC fixed but I’m in France!  Can’t wait to get back and play but it will be two weeks still to go!

  3. IL2:BoX in the Pacific.... ish!!!

    Interestingly, some players of IL2:Battle of Stalingrad have adapted the IL2:Battle of Kuban map to be the territory of the fighting around New Guinea and THe Solomons. They Have used the Spitfire and the P-40 for the allied planes and the MC202 as a Ki44 Tony and the FW190 as a zero. They have also included the Ju88 as the Betty. Surprisingly, with Japanese skins these aircraft look really very similar and the server as a whole has a real Pacific feel. Check it out... Gos
  4. project hudoria v2

    Impressive - does it move with the wind and creek etc?
  5. My Throttle Quadrant

    Although the basic throttle Quadrant is a Saitek (now Logitech) PZ45, I made the box below,,, As you can see the construction is using “Meccanno” but I am using Hall Effect ICs for the sensing of the controls. There are the following: Pitch Tribe - Large Black Wheel Rudder Trim - GreyWhell on Top Aileron Trim - Grey WAheel on the End Flaps - Grey Lever on End - All the above are geared down about 3:1 to make them less sensitive - IE about 3 full rotations for the Pitch trim which is very similar to the real aircraft. Infact testing within IL2:1946 showed that the pitch movement pretty much matched the graphic wheel movement in the aircraft! 7 x On - Off - On Self Cetering Switches allocated to Chocks and Tail Wheel Lock Dive Brakes and Bomb Bay Doors Flaps - For those games wher Flaps are no on a lever Undercarriage Fuel Cock and Fuel Selector Wing Fold And Arrestor Hook Anything else required.... 1 x On - Off - On Latched Switch that then runs through a push button covered switch to Safe/Arm Bombs and Jettison/Release Bombs - This means you can Set the bombs to Safe and then Releaseing them is effectively a Jettison 2 x Potentiometer sliders Water Radiator - Inlet Cowl Oil Radiator - Outlet Cowl The Circuit board that drive it all is a Leo Bonar BU0836A All in all most things are placed logically and so fall to hand when needed.

  6. Oh dear!!!  On the runway about to open the throttle and there is a small electrical spark noise...  The games ad other programs froze.  Had to shut down with the long power button press.  Restart brings up the power supply only.  PC appear “Dead”. 

    So I won’t be playing for the foreseeable....
