<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Cool pics! One thing to point out thought the Me163 in that pic is not real, it is a full scale model.

something-cats (2 pics, can't keep all those cats straight http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
F7Fs (so sweet)
<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

The cats are an F6F Hellcat and then an F8F Bearcat.

I believe the F7F was called Tigercat.

Grumman and its cats, you know http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Sweet pics btw, were you using a tripod?

No tripod. Camera is a Cannon Powershot G3, using a Tiffen 2x Teleconverter for most of the in air shots. It's not the best for shooting airborn stuff, but it does alright sometimes, once you get used to it. I'd really like a nice DSLR with some huge lenses. But I'm a near-broke almost-graduated college student with some loans to pay off, so that's not going to happen too soon http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

I've not tweaked any of those shots yet, but some could be cleaned up a bit in PS and be printable probablly.

And just like in the game, the Me-163 could not start its engine while on the ground http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.
