the historically important aircraft models (and scenery) you need to use FSX, and FS9,
Aharon would you be keen to head up the "historical banner" effort? In my mind it doesn't need to be a kiwi or even long standing member, and you've shown more interest than most lately in sharing and exploring NZ aviation routes and history from what I've seen.
If we choose to go with this idea, there may be no need for a 2nd helper. I can carry on doing the actual graphics, as per usual, providing I have the following (in each case):
1) Short title of the event and/or person involved.
2) At least one decent (large) letter-box aspect ratio to use as a background/main image (1200px minimum).
3) A few inset pics to drop in.
4) If we choose to link the banner to a post - then details of the event (possibly with more pics).
It needs to be NZ-related in some way, and I still feel that the main pic at least should be a sim screenshot - the inset pics maybe not. We also need to ensure that we're not breaking any copyright for historical images.

One is that I am NOT NOT NOT NOT foremost expert in history of commercial and military New Zealand aviation history.
Second is that I do not have very very very advanced photoshop skills

As regards Photoshop etc. - I'm quite happy to continue creating the banners themselves ... from whatever content is sent to me!
Yeah not suggesting you would have to do the research or the banners, most of the effort with stuff like this is acting as an organiser, teasing content out of people, getting timelines organised etc, its more project management/facilitating than anything.
