    The forum just went through some changes. There might be some bugs. We will get it figured out.

    I think VERSUCH is trying to post a pic, but it won't.

    I wonder how he is doing it, because when I posted test pics it worked fine.

    I'll try from my internal drive ...:

    And from the web ...

    Can't seem to do it from the web ....

    And my otherwise sig pic gets compressed in the x-y direction. What size should we make it so it maintains aspect ratio?

    Actually when I hit "Save Changes," the sig pic was OK, but the pic under it where I could reply is compressed ... very strange. Probably a setting. But that pales until we can post pics (at least .jpg's) from the web in some format.

    The one that made it below from my hard drive is a jpg.

    Hi,
    The aircraft in the historical photo is a Macchi C.202 "Folgore" not a Macchi C.205 "Veltro".
    In the first photo the aircraft is too small to identify it without doubt, bat the fixed tail gear say that it is a C.202 or a C.202 converted into C.202. The date of photo can help identify the subject: if it was before 1943, what it is certainly a C.202.
    In the second and third photo you can see the typical "rectangular" oil cooler of C.202 instead of the two of the C.205 with DB 605/Fiat RA 1050, that you can see in the VERSUCH photo.

    bye
