Maybe I should redirect my graphics card cooler exhaust to my face, when time comes

Not any more, Sniper. True, it used to be owned by the Fighter Collection but is now with Air Leasing; however, I suspect Nick Grey will have had some hours in it so it wouldn't surprise me if 'Nellie' become the yardstick against which the DCS flight model will be assessed.

I'm sure it has been covered and I won't get my hopes up, but I would love there to be a Razorback model...

Thanks Fenrir - that cockpit looks like it was designed by a locomotive manufacturer. The landing gear hydraulic manifold must weigh thrity pounds by itself.

It shows just how good the fidelity of the cockpit models in DCS are.

When I saw that photograph of the cockpit I thought it was a DCS model as it looks just like the quality of the models in DCS

Then I looked outisde the cockpit and realized it was the real thing

Just WOW!!!
