Know how you feel. Depression is a right bastard. Takes things you love and that used to give you energy and turns them into s**t. :icon_crap:

Really happy for you that you found something else that's giving you joy! Way to go!  :smiley:
Cheers,

Ok so yesterday ran into today.

This is what happens when you delete things you ought not to...turned in at 4am and resumed again at 10am (though annoyingly sleep only came at six ((also, did I tell you it was winter and it was as the locals say "poes" cold))). All of this plus another few hours (and I can spend many, many more save for the deadline of today) and I still managed to set a qualification time of 1:56:653 at Imola!

...Only 6 seconds slower than those sitting in the top 5. But I am division 2 talent level for now anyway and this the number of entries there will be plenty of scraps to be had.   

So in thinking about a livery design I wanted something striking as these races are live streamed. Call me an 80's child but I love black and neon when it comes to liveries because they are just so eye catching. My tea mate chose blue for his highlight colour and I went for a shade more masculine pink :)

Hi all

So deciding what to draw have put a poll up on my short list. Have a say in the next piece.

The poll is still up for a few more hours though the Bucc seems to be the winner (I set up the poll incorrectly so HAD to click something so made it the top one :D, therefore the F-4 only has 2 votes).

I chose the Bucc to be part of the list as I have memories of watching them return to AFB Waterkloof when my family lived in Waterkloof, Pretoria in the late 80's.

Time to start on that research, colour samples and markings :)

Which service/scheme will be first? Time will tell :)

This is a song my late dad played when I was a kid in the 80s

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73PPofzvOX0

It's McCully Workshop's The Buccaneer from 1977. So busy researching scheme no.1 and I think Vietnam will be my starting point.

Enjoy the song :)

Got a bit busy prepping TDR's Nissan R35 GT GT3 cars for their first Simrace SA run, 60 laps at Donnington (one of my favourite circuits)

Got a chance to do some more work on the Bucc :)



Slowly but surely!

Looks great!!  If you are taking requests, I definitely have one for a Buccaneer in Marineflieger markings, either MFG1 or MFG2.

Hmmm sounds like it might be a plan. Could you post a pic or two of the scheme here please?

Maybe a scheme like this Marineflieger Starfighter?
