  1. Twelve years of flight simming

    This new blog feature is interesting, isn't it? Suddenly you're faced with some of the problems professional writers have, which is to find something interesting to say. I thought I'd start at the beginning, which for me, was in the spring of 1996. I'd bought a used PC from a friend, paid another friend to modify it, as it would not run the original Need For Speed as it was. I also got online as soon as possible.

    I've decided to do another repaint! This time, it's purely fictional. I'm currently painting a Christen Eagle, the one from Long Island Classics. Here is the fuselage at the moment:
