If you have a favourite prop, I may also have a pit for you, yet I mostly fly P-51s and P-38s. ;)

Thanks again.  I am not sure what you mean about the cockpits, but mostly in the campaigns I have hurricanes and spitfires.  I do also enjoy P-51s and P-38s.  I guess in my case that is kinda peculiar that I don't play the jet war module since I spent most of my time in the Navy (22 yrs worth) around squadrons and stations with F-4s, A-7s, A-6s and other Vietnam era jets.  But I guess when you are old, you just enjoy old a/c more.  Have a good vacation.  Enjoy it in spite of me.

@Tbauchot:
In case you plan to make more high cloud textures, I don't know where you get your textures from but this site has dozens for free:

You won't be the first one who got his textures from this site.  :D

More clouds :)

Hi Uufflakke and vpmedia,

Thank you very much for your links, It is always very interesting to have sources !  ;)

However regarding the skies, the way I work is as follows:
I was a professional photographer for almost 20 years and I have always been passionate about landscape photography.
So, of course I use my own images !  ;)
So regularly, when the sky inspires me, I go in the nature, with my camera,
and I harvest skies in the manner of tasty strawberries !  :)

@Tbauchot,
It gives much more satisfaction using your own photos for textures.
That is the way I got interested in retexturing maps. Long time ago at AllAircraftArcade I saw a map getting retextured. One member asked if it was possible to redo the rocks and cliffs textures so it looked more like the photos he made of that particular area. Not much later the mapmaker used these images for his textures. I almost fell off my chair to see that parts of the real world got transferred into the virtual world so easily.
