I remember he posted something about it in an old Whirly thread, saying that he wanted "The Whirly whiners" to send him everything they got to him, and that if he get good enough data he will model it for BOB?

Well, Oleg as far as I know or for that matter any of his minions (Though I expect he and his team are rather busy... But some encouragement would have been nice!) has not contacted me...

A number of leads that at first promised so much have, I'm afraid resulted in me supplying info in return for naught in return...

Some of the info needed has been found through both my research and Mr BlueSky's. Other has been kindley donated by other like minded Whirly fan's but are of a textual nature and not drawings or photo's...

I have still some leads to follow but as you can imagine, it can get to you when people promise things and then fail to deliver...

So, at this moment in time I have a bundle of stuff that I must sort... But really have lost the inclination to continue...

Regards

Archie...

I don't really feel much animosity towards Oleg or his crew, after all he has got alot on his plate at the moment...

No it's the others that have let me down... As a consequence I feel I've let the Whirlwind Whinners down...

All I can do is keep searching, anything that turns up I just chuck on the pile... One thing I have found out though, there's a new Whirly book coming...

And do you have any details of that new Whirly book? Will it improve on the already pretty comprehensive Bingham volume which I already have?

Oh yes, the Author has found far more about the demise of the Whirlwind than has been published before, as to details as to when and exactly what it contents are... I'm afraid I am not at liberty to discuss. Sorry MBV but it will be a book to look out for, one that is without doubt at the very least on a par with V.Binghams and at best, one that will put alot of ghosts to rest... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I won't be ungentlemanly and divulge who exactly have let the project down, but I can say they are not members of this forum... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I'm not having that, old chum. Nobody could have done more than your good self for the cause. I can't see what more could have been offered. I wish I could offer some thrilling tale of derring do or battling for a righteous cause to explain my recent enforced absence, truth is I was shagged out on all fronts and needed a break.

In an ideal world, the upcoming sim would eventually include everthing from the Tiger Moth to cannon-armed Spits and everything in between (including the good ol' Whirly). Let's hope the info' you've provided goes towards fulfilling our dream. Keep the faith. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
