25 February 2018 - 16:26 ~: The Sunday duelist : ~ .
Or "Duelling on Sundays"...
BYO airplane, brandy, umbrella if wet and Mr Arty_effem S! provides the arena.
Duelling server! or what else we can find.
( Keep your eyes open and follow your nose.)
Founding members and people who have randomly elected to duel at one time or another, include:
Mr Hill Billy. S! ( A superb host of duels)
Mr Thor Hrafannnn. S! ( N17 vs Camel? )
Hotleadcoldfeet. S! ( N28 vs D7f? )
Arty S! ( N17 vs Hlb DII )
Other people here...
=VS=_Emely S! ( N17 vs Hlb DII )
Note to self:
Try to remember everyone I have duelled with... and add other duellists who might like to be recorded here for purposes...
Who was it that flew the, er, something and ...oh never mind! Memory like a sieve...
Leave a note if you want to be on the roll call! with some duelling anecdote or a witty duelling quip.
or if you wish to be taken off the roll!
Previously know as:
" Sopwith Pup VS Halberstadt DII ... ahem... good fun really! "...
So by golly:
Most people would put money on the Pup. Right.
Due to the advertising jingle etc.
( It out turns a DR1 etc...they say...)
But by gosh, I had a very protracted fight down low in the bushes with a proper Frenchman who flew
the Pup like a maniac.
He's either new and really good OR a returning vet... or just super. and maybe not French at all ...
Try these two in a match up.
The Pup seems to out turn the Halb BUT the Halb has a bit more lift. There are other comparisons to be made but I am pretty sure you can isolate them out if you muck in...
We never found out who was going to win as an interloper dispatched the French chap in a graceless fashion. The chap immediately quit and I never got the chance to salute him proper like and comment on his aggressive and yet sublime fighting attitude. Maybe they are local with a new profile?
Anyway I was pretty impressed with the match up and thought it might be worth mentioning here.
Gin and tonic is on me back at the RFC bar! and cheese and crackers too.
PS. And they only have one gun each and the German gun is offset! So there. : - )
Right that was the first page of the thread. here is the original thread what will sink into the forum gloom:
Great examples of our forum nature in action!

~: The Sunday duellist : ~ At 09:00 hrs on Sunday Auckland NZ time - UTC +13.
just restarting the thread after it blew up on take off.
It's early in the morning here and ready to zoom off to Arty's server to duel with whoever turns up.
Sorry about the argy bargy in the last thread, hopefully we can keep this one going a bit longer!
and with less bun throwing. ( that would be great! )
Salute to Arty_effem and =VS=_emely for keeping the duelling real!
Dueling! On Sunday!
May possibly change the time again as my country has just had "daylight savings" do it's thing again. The clocks change time back one hour... maybe. Or not. who cares!
Will probably try to stir up discussion on some good duelling tips and tricks. : - )
Right oh I must get back in the plane and fly off to the duelling server!
