Maybe the microjet is bad luck - it always bring overcast!




How does that microjet compare in size to an Me163 - it looks a bit smaller?

Happy birthday, Jim!

It feels like my birthday, too: I got a terrific present today when the FAA paperwork finally came through on my Pipistrel. Only 2-1/2 months after we unloaded the shipping container, and today was its first flight.

The story behind my N-number is that growing up, the family Cessna 172 carried N5298A. Still does, actually: I checked the database to see if I could have that N-number and had to settle for -Z instead.

Niall, Is the Me 163 larger than a man? The microjet looks like it swallows the man:

Just looked it up Me163 Komet Wingspan 9.32m length 5.98 metres
Micro Jet Wingspan 6.5m (or 4.04m) . length 4.06m
However, fun as it looks, having reviewed the crash record on Wikipedia it looks nearly as dangerous to fly as the Me163 was!

Thanks for the critiques and tips Mr. Jeff and Z...i want to go back and work on that one some more.

i'm flattered that you even assume i'm cutting out airframes and doing actual processing truth is i dont know the first thing about using photo shop. i'll work on the lightroom method.

Glenn


Dear Glenn, Like others I'm staggered and amazed at the leaps forward you've made with your photography. On the LR and halo thing – may I suggest a little reading? -
http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Negative-Processing-Lightroom-Photoshop/dp/0321839579/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1399059776&sr=1-3&keywords=jeff+schewe

I've found his guidance – especially on the basics of the LR development module – to be very helpful. Oh, and not to mention embarrassing on account of the basic stuff I should have known, but didn’t. More power to your elbow young Sir.


Thanks nick thats nice to say. I ordered one. Guess its time to learn to process images!

Glenn, I wish my panning skills were as sweet as the light. Goose eggs for most of the shots. Gotta get out more. (Of course, thanks to people like you, Jay, Jeff, Steve Yipdog, etc and not meaning to leave anyone out, my standards are much higher than a few years ago.)

This Jan Collmer shot was marginal, and he is straight and nearly level.

Eddie, is that with your new 100-400? Looks really sharp! It might take you some practice to get used to that lens.

Yes Mark, the lens is fine, the operator needs to find his groove.

The BD-5J at least burns JP-4 instead of hypergolic T-Stoff. It's better when your fuel isn't itching to burn without an ignition source!

I slowed the shutter speed down on Fighterjets Inc's Mig on Sunday, and am much happier with the way the burner looks...
