Amazing looking screenshots! PMDG 77L?
Also, what are you using for ground textures in shot 11/12? Looks so good!

Hi and thanks for comments,

Jamie, it's PMDG for P3D. Bought it as a late birthday present for myself in autum. Ground textures, the scenery for KUL I'm using something called A_A scenery for Kuala Lumpur airport (WKKK), this was payware, but it was a discounted price just before Christmas. From SimMarket, IIRC. All these shots were unedited and posted 'as they are'. And yeah, I'm pretty happy how the sim looks now.  ;D

In real life, so to speak, came home yesterday from a little winter holiday trip to Hong Kong. Flew with CX, stayed 4 nights. So much to see & do there. Wonderful city!

I'm on leave from work now, as it takes a lot of time with my studies at the university. Half way now with the degree, 1,5 years to go.

Blue skies everyone

I just got back from HK too! Too bad it rained a few days this week!

Hi Anders,

Really! Yeah, it was little rainy and cloudy, but I found the temps quite pleasant. Hotel was in Tsuen Wan. Conveniently right next to two malls. Went to see the light show to the center twice. Last day I stayed at the airport hotel for the evening. Came back HKG-AMS-HEL. (Back to HEL..  :o)












(How hard can it be to take a screenshot IRL)

Finnair brought me home from AMS




What a nice virtual community we have here @MAV - and sorry for going a little off-topic here.

Nice! I always stay in Wan Chai, about a block over from where my dad grew up. I try and get back to Hong Kong every few months.

That 748 ride is genuinely one of the most drool-worthy things I've seen you do; and that's saying something.  ;)
And while we're on the topic of Honkers... I was there a couple of months ago, stayed like 2 blocks east from Wan Chai Station. I think going in summer was the wrong idea though because it was so humid. Did manage to get this though.

And a little bonus something if you're interested....
