  1. Thanks very much everyone and a happy New Year to you all. Couldn't resist adding a few more pix - love this old bird.
  2. The venerable Bristol Freighter used to be a familiar sight in New Zealand skies, either with Straits Air Freight Express (SAFE) or with the RNZAF. Thanks to FSAddon is has returned, albeit in FSX and P3D4. For around $US18 it's great value for money and will please those of us who like to fly low and slow in a lumbering piece of antiquated machinery. In NZ it was affectionately known as fifty thousand rivets flying in close formation. The final shot was taken at NZWV where one of them saw out its days as a café next to the airstrip.
  3. Plus Wanganui and Tauranga if I remember rightly. Extremely disappointing to say the least. Perhaps someone from ORBX could let us know whether any or all of these projects will ever see the light of day?
  4. Do you have ORBX Global Vector? If so that could be causing issues.
  5. Benny, you should find the solution here: https://www.flightbeam.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=3541
  6. Robin Corn who did Dunedin and Nelson has also done a great rendition of Christchurch which you can find here: https://windowlight.co.nz/godzoneWP/ Flightbeam's version of Wellington is also very good with Auckland possibly just around the corner - check out their website. ORBX has done Queenstown, Milford Sound, Whangarei and Gisborne with Invercargill still in the pipeline. With FS2020 on the horizon I'm not optimistic that any more NZ sceneries will be made for P3D4 which would be a great shame if this proves to be the case.
  7. Here you go Dave..... https://lyndiman.com/lyndimans-new-zealand-ortho-photography-set/
  8. Thanks for that link fltsimguy and yes I was referring to P3D4. I also have the free ortho scenery for XP11 and it's stunning!
  9. So good to see so many great sceneries being released lately but where oh where is NZNV, Invercargill? It seems to have been in gestation for ever. NZ hardly features in the ORBX inventory so any small offering is greatly anticipated. It puzzles me that a country with so much diverse scenery packed into a small area has not been embraced by ORBX. XP11 on the other hand has some excellent freeware scenery covering most of the country. As Americans would say, go figure!
  10. Thanks very much everyone. It's hard not to get a good shot of the venerable Moth.
  11. Cruising an ORBX coastline in Ant's magnificent Tiger Moth. This aircraft is an absolute gem.
  12. Thanks very much guys for the kind comments. The Tiger Moth is extremely photogenic!
  13. Ant's stunning Tiger Moth at NZGS goes head to head with the vintage train. He's done a superb job upgrading the old freeware model and it's a joy to fly.
  14. Thanks very much guys for the kind comments. The QW787, FSLabs A320 and A2A are probably the only things stopping me from switching completely to XP11!
  15. Serendipity is a wonderful thing. In this case the stunning LIEO scenery purchased in the current ORBX sale and the release of the QW787-10. A perfect match.
