    Hi Dan & Alex,
    i love the Spitfire
    i love your work! Fantastic.

    Since the last update, the flickering of the cockpit is not existant any more.
    Therefore the floor of the cockpit and the space behind the panel is, depending on the angle of the sun, too brigth and flickering.
    Is this a problem of my computer or a common problem?

    Thank you for your engagement for these fantastic birds……
