That's the best smoke you've done so far.
Very nice.

Hey Boss,

Careful saying Kiwi some people round here will cry and ***** over politically incorrect words being used like that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Good job im not a **** like that, i just wanna say i love it. Like major said, the smoke looks very nice, but the contrail on the P40's wing really spoke to me! The lighting on the planes is spot on, and the background is nicely generated. I know how hard it is to get what you want from Terragen, and i mean what you really want! Great Screenshot! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Don't change a thing!

As far as im concerned, another fantastic shot, and a fitting name.

Who says the PF forums have to be so PC anyways? And how can calling someone a fruit thats produced in their country piss them off? (or in this case, piss off the artwork? heh)

Great job!

I cant say ive ever heard of a Kiwi whos ever been offended by being called a kiwi http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Also the RNZAF never claimed a kill on a Ki-61
One was seen and F/Lt M Jones calimed to have scored hits on it (unconfirmed) it was the only time an inlined engines Japanese aircraft was seen by the RNZAF.

In saying that I do really enjoy your pics http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

NZ is a great country btw. I just hope the pollies don't stuff it up like they are here.
I'd trust a rat with a gold tooth before I'd trust a politician.

Once upon a time, a Japanese student decided to skip the commencement of his university, and backpacked NZ instead for several weeks.... he went to a Zoo, in Auckland (?) (a real zoo, not Ubi zoo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif).... he had to wait for about an hour in the darkness.... until the bird finally decided to come out from the nest. He saw the bird running across the room (5 m?) in a split second, behind a glass wall.

Hikers staying in a mountain hat held a make-shift "commencement" for the student with whatever food available on the night when he was supposed to be attending his commencement. An old lady removed a small national flag of NZ from her backpack, and presented it to him. He still has the flag, it's his treasure.... Sometimes he flies a Spitfire with the NZ marking.

He is dreaming about returning to NZ, esp. Milford Sound & Track, ever since.... On his book, NZ is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, a country of nice "Kiwi's" with great human decency. Good people who show respect to others earn respect from other decent human beings.

Oh, I almost forgot. No_312_RAF_Jura, beautiful screenshot!

New Zealand did indead use the P40, to great effect too!

The only time interestingly enough that I have seen a Kiwi in the wild was at the last Wanaka Airshow I went too (1998 red stars rising). On the way home I went the long way up the west coast and comeing round a corner near Haast there was one out on the grass verge looking for grubs I guess. A treasured siteing.

But in saying all that, I REALLY miss Sydney. Awsome city, Awsome country.

Yep, RNZAF P-40 pilots in the Pacifc were credited with 99 confirmed kills before converting to the Corsair.
No more confirmed kills in the F4U due to doing mostly air-to-ground sorties.

And getting back on track... Awesome pic RAF-Jura mate! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Jura, another fantastic job of yours indeed! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

lighting, shadowing, composition... excellent!

The only thing I would change is the trails from wingtip: plane seems to be turning FAR to sharp, and angle of attack seems negative (of course it should be positive during such a sharp turn).
