  1. I hardly drink anything else than Belgian beers. And once in a while a German Bamberg Rauchbier. For it's typical smokey taste. This is one of my favourite Belgian beers:
  2. It really pays off you played around with tonal variety via many colour layers to achieve that result. It creates a kind of depth to the skin of the plane. I think the best lighting is daylight. With the appropiate background it may look like a 1:1 real P-47. Just like KiwiMcG did here with his Bf109G-4: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/62136-plastic-modelers-in-the-il-2-community/page/47/?tab=comments#comment-1012100
  3. As someone said before in another topic: Anything French except the D.520

    What's the title of the song?
  5. I must have been 8 or 10 years young also when I used to play with Meccano. With the instruction booklet next to me constructing a bridge, a crane or a locomotive. Counting the holes in the metal bar to find out where to put the next screw. Can't remember the box art but parts inside I still remember. Even after more than four decades...
  6. It is not Chernobyl but Pripyat. Having said that, it is known that many of these photos are staged. For the extra dramatic effect. As if everyone present had to escape immediately after the nuclear disaster of Chernobyl on the 26st of April. It was not like that. On the contrary. Evacuation took place 36 hours later and people were told to take just some personal belongings with them because after a couple of days they would return anyway. And then they were transported with hundreds of buses to other locations. This tourist tells about his trip to Pripyat and its photogenic places. http://www.thebohemianblog.com/2014/09/what-its-like-to-spend-32-hours-in-the-chernobyl-exclusion-zone.html 'Within my own group alone, I observed countless instances of tourists moving these artefacts around, or repositioning furniture for a better shot. I watched a photographer arrange stuffed bears and little dolls so that they sat in line along the edge of a bare, metal-framed bed. I’m sure it made for an excellent photograph… but if my group was by any way representative, then just imagine the cumulative effect of as many as 10,000 visitors interacting with the Zone every year. 'Don’t kid yourself. For every photograph you take in Pripyat, there are a thousand other photographers who have that exact same shot. You are not capturing a moment of history – you’re simply replicating a pretty scene that was more than likely constructed purely for your benefit… and as a means to take your money. Pripyat is not a time capsule, and neither is it, strictly speaking, a ‘ghost town’: but rather it’s a kind of radioactive Disneyland, the ultimate photographers’ boot camp.'
  7. Based on the Donald L. Miller book Masters Of The Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought The Air War Against Nazi Germany. "Masters Of The Air is a follow-up to the producers’ Emmy award-winning World War II HBO miniseries Band Of Brothers (2001) and The Pacific (2010)." Sounds interesting of course. But till sofar only on Apple TV... https://www.nme.com/news/tv/no-time-to-die-director-signs-up-for-steven-spielberg-and-tom-hanks-band-of-brothers-follow-up-2778457?amp
  8. Water Margin: Outlaws of the Marsh As it is one of China's most popular books, it must have been read by tens of million of people in China and in Japan. If not hundreds of millions since it was written way back in the 14th century. A lot of fighting, looting, plundering and brigandry. Often compared to Robin Hood: stealing from the rich and giving it to the poor. But that is not that often the case in Water Margin: Outlaws of the Marsh. Her own fault. She should have listened to her husband.
  9. That is exactly the reason why I did not pre-purchase BON: the more than disappointing generic and empty BOBP map. I will wait untill BON is released and see what it has to offer. If usermade screenshots and videos look promising I buy it. Otherwise it is a matter of waiting another 2 more years (2024?) for a new map to be released.
  10. @ SOLIDKREATE, I had plans to buy a 9 mm pistol this summer but because of COVID-19 i postponed it. On the other hand I have no idea what kind of pistol I want to have. There is so much choice At the moment I enjoy my good old .22" revolver (a S&W 17-3 ) and my .357" revolver (a S&W 66-2). Luckily the shooting range is open again.
  11. uuuh... okay. If that improves your flying skills who am I to say something about it.
