Snipe Skins

Here are some preview images of the Sopwith Snipe for FSX. Currently I have five variations, though whether all five make it into the download or as an extra texture pack depends on the size of the zip.

Seasons Greetings!

I'd just like to wish all my readers and those who've downloaded the Biff a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2009. Take care and enjoy the holidays. May you have many enjoyable hours with your favourite simulations and games.

PS - don't neglect important things such as families.... and .....hey a bit of exercise and life away from a computer is good too. Guess what my new year's resolution is LOL?

BTW 2008 Is closing off with a great many addons for FSX. (Check out your favourite forum for news). I hope you've managed to treat yourself to at least one of them.

Cheers and Best Wishes

Robert Bruce.

Snipe coming along

As I'm now on the road to recovery I've resumed working on the Snipe. I'd say the generic base texture on the external model is almost finished. Just got to sit on it for a few days to make sure I'm happy. I hope to have a flight model ready for others to test within the next week. I'm going to experiment with ways of instrument lighting and also look at implementing a simple gravity tank system. I'd like ot tackle sound also... a big unknown for me.

Anyway it looks as if soon will be soon.... barring accidents.

Home From Hospital

Just a quick post to say that I am now home from hospital. I still have a period of recovery ahead during which I can't place any weight on the wound for more than a few minutes. That means I can't sit upright for any length of time. I can stand and walk ok. I still don't have the verdict on the success of the surgery or likely prognosis. Updates will be posted on my cancer blog.

Many thanks to those who offered their best wishes.
