Special NATO edition

Italian Starfighter

F-104 Starfighter - the manned missile !
Giorgio flew the F-104 in the Italian Air Force starting in 1966 and accumulating almost 2000 hrs on the G and S models. Exemplifying high - tech 1950's design, this sleek machine, the epitome of the manned missile is still in service half a century later. Here are some images from his personal collection - F-104 Starfighter.

F-104 crash in the Netherlands last week.

Objects in 1990s DOS sims

Moose and Microwave
including Male Moose and Microwave Modelling !

Actually I don't believe it's a good idea for Male Mooses to hang around near Microwaves! But rest assured - no animals were harmed in the production of this article ! Itook the picture while checking out the MiG-29 in NATO Fighters - so I guess the heading should read :

Modelling the MiGs, Male Mooses and Microwaves !

I also added
  • complete list of the objects modelled in this sim - broken down by category
  • the Crimean Peninsula - compare it to Su-27 Flanker 2.5
  • MiG-21
  • B-1B Lancer

Box art to the Spanish edition of Megafortress

Megafortress
I added the Box art to the Spanish edition of Megafortress, the B-52 sim based on the book - "Flight of the Old Dog" by Dale Brown. Well, it's not a regular B-52 sim. Dale's Megafortress was a heavily modified super - penetration - strike variant!
