    This is about the EXTERNAL views of the aircraft, i.e. Spot & Locked Spot.

    Why is it that the exact same aircraft will sometimes appear "normal" i.e. scalable to your screen size and properly fit on the screen with all parts showing and with the ability to zoom in and out as required (using the '-' and '=' keys or scrolling the mouse wheel), and at other times suddenly appear so close and large that only a small component of the aircraft can fit on the screen and you can barely zoom out at all?

    I am providing links to a couple of files to illustrate the issue..
    PROPER SIZE.jpg - Shows the aircraft as it SHOULD appear.

    ENLARGED SIZE.jpg - Shows the extreme close up and enlarged view.

    I am sure others must have encountered this and I would love to know that there is a fix for this. Would really appreciate some help.

    Thanks,

    Daraious
    Mine does the same thing and there is no fix that I've tried yet. I've tried everything that's been suggested so far. The only way to fix is to restart FSX. Has nothing to do with Steam BTW, I had the problem with my box edition that I've owned & used since 2006. I have Steam Edition installed now & get the same problem daily. I switch between a lot of planes as I'm always working with the config files tweaking & adding things. But, If someone has a fix, I'd sure like to hear it. Get back on subject, let's find a fix for this Annoying Problem please.

    Well something finally went right....... The Control Spacebar trick worked. I know I tried it before & it didn't work, it does now. Thanks for the post and solution.

    Lloyd! Thank you so much!

    I tried the backspace option but there was no change. Zooming in and out using + and - just moved the image a couple of "inches" closer and out.

    What worked was your suggestion of CTRL + Space - worked like a charm!

    So thank you again!
