I'll put some pics here of the ship and other bits.
I recently got a Canon G9 camera and am still learning how to use the thing (messed up a few shots), a whopping 12 MegaPixel shots http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif .
It comes with some nice software utilities, like Photo Stitch. Here I've stitched 4 external shots of Belfast. You can zoom in for nice detail.

Excellent picture there!! Thanks for sharing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I really love the photo stitch program from Canon - it makes for some great panoramic pictures when you don't have the dedicated wide angle lens http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

As it turns out, the Jambino's got hold of my Olympus camera and managed to break it yesterday, small print in the extra cover insurance I bought with it revealed an 'Instant Replacement' element to the warranty - I've just got home with my new Canon Ixus 75 (http://www.canon.co.uk/For_Home/Product_Finder/Cameras/Digital_Camera/IXUS/Digital_IXUS_75/index.asp) and it has that photo stitch feature so I'll be asking you K_Freddie and Goose for tips! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I can try, but it's new to me too..
What I can see is that, for the best effect, you have to stand still, in the same position, and rotate like a robot.
My camera lens horizontal view angle looks like ~50 degrees, so I take shots at 45 degree angles.
Also use the same zoom scale - it might be possible to scale unmatched shots, but I'm not sure yet..
Have fun

Well as far as your talents at the IL2 forums as a movie maker, I'm sure what you come up with will be worth seeing.

Great photo Freddie! I look forward to seeing the rest of your shots http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif


Regarding photo-stitching...

Photoshop's 'Photomerge' function is another great way of stitching panoramic shots together. Within reason, it can work with different levels of zoom and provides a lot of flexibility for overlaying and merging the seams between shots.
