Re: WINGS900 Community Members Unite For Charity: Model Around The World

Hey Chris.

I'm sure you have that all covered. In case you don't, please consider to include a minimum size of the picture, so that they dont all come in difference resolutions. Perhaps a 1024px-600px photo would be enough, and then gather all the photos in one thread. (just a thought)
Carry on, Chris !

I wish yo all success for this to reach it all around the world. Good luck!

Chris,

I updated the map and am getting more than 90,000 miles... can you check it to make sure it looks correct?

Just for clarity guys re the Great Circle map. This is purely a rough guide to calculate mileages. For many, the parcel will not necessarily come through these airports, but by using your closest airport it gives us a fairly good guide i think of how many miles the model will travel
