My new Spad from Niki Wilder

For the first time over 4 years I was able to participate in a dogfight. Did I win? If by winning you mean NOT get shot down, then I won. I need lots of practice, and thanks to SLGo it's able to happen again.

A short testflight with the Vega Gull in SL. Built by bunnys fride. The Percival Vega Gull is an absolute awesome elegant aeroplane of the 1930s, designed by Edgar Wikner Percival.

Machinima Test

This is little test machinima I created at Cornelius Fanshaw's Tarington Aerodrome. He redecorated his WW2 style RAF Tarington Field to resemble a Royal Flying Corp World War 1 era aerodrome complete with trenches between his parcel and Niki Wilder's place at Rundlelawn.

 I would have planned the shot much better, but I was just winging it as an experiment - just to see if it was possible. It's been a very long time since I last created a machinima and to be honest I forgot a lot of basics. Yay Google!

This is a single shot using 3D Space Navigator.

I used music from a YouTube approved download-able list (avoiding copyright trouble this time). The track is called "Vespers" by Topher Mohr and Alex Elena.

YouTube detected a little bumpiness on the video, so I approved some smoothing, which accounts for the dreamy wave images you see here and there.
