    Time Factors Desktop wallpapers

    Forum member Geoff D has been demonstrating his Photoshop skills and created a few desktop wallpapers featuring Time Factors watches. He has kindly given permission for us to download them completely free of charge, thanks Geoff!

    All the big files are 1024 x 768 pixels and the download link for the big file is shown below the smaller pictures below.

    Geoff, thanks a lot. This is awesome. The DN is my choice. A massive u-boat in a great storm. Which one is btw, one from the royal navy?

    Cheers

    They look great! Well done!

    I saw the (New) Typhoon being put through her paces at an RAF station last week, with Tornado F3's at low altitude, clearly in training together. The Typhoon did a vertical and powered away from low, low, level-stunning.

    Perhaps the new RAF Typhoon could be in one of the wallpapers, if Geoff would not mind doing it at all?

    An RM team on their raiding vessels (RR's) with Precista Diver or PRS17c would look great, imho, too.

    Great idea!-and so well done. :D

    Best wishes,
    AP :)

    I like :D :)

    Watching it fly for a while it looked exceptionally nifty, the Tornados (F3's) were running on the decks at the time, and turning sharply, whilst the Typhoon was burning and turning neatly.

    Excellent. Any chance of the PRS-14 in widescreen look rather than vertical? It doesn't look quite right.

    Very nice I'll have to use the PRS-2 one at work at home my monitor is set to 1680 x 1050 so these are to small.

    Any chance for one with the humble PRS-53?

    The submarine pictured is the seventh "HMS Dreadnought." S101 was the United Kingdom's first nuclear-powered submarine, built by Vickers Armstrong at Barrow-in-Furness.

    The HMS Dreadnought (S101) was laid down on 12 June 1959, and launched by Her Majesty the Queen on Trafalgar Day, 21 October 1960. The reactor was embarked in 1962 and Dreadnought made her first dive, in Ramsden Dock, on 10 January 1963. At the time of her commissioning on 17 April 1963, she was one of the most formidable attack submarines in the world.

    Sadly, due to machinery damage and the limited refit facilities then available for SSNs, HMS Dreadnought was withdrawn from service in 1980. HMS Dreadnought is now at Rosyth Naval Dockyard, laid up indefinitely while her radioactive contamination decays. Her nuclear fuel has been removed and she has been stripped of useful equipment.

    As an aside the other six HMS Dreadnoughts were:

    HMS Dreadnought (1573), a 41-gun ship launched in 1573, rebuilt in 1592 and 1614, then broken up in 1648.
    HMS Dreadnought (1691), a 60-gun 4th rate launched in 1691, rebuilt in 1706 and broken up 1748.
    HMS Dreadnought (1742), a 60-gun 4th rate launched in 1742 and sold 1784.
    HMS Dreadnought (1801), a 98-gun 2nd rate launched in 1801, converted to a hospital ship in 1827, and broken up 1857.
    HMS Dreadnought (1875), a battleship launched in 1875 and hulked in 1903, then sold in 1908.
    HMS Dreadnought (1906), a revolutionary battleship, launched in 1906 and sold for breakup in 1921.

    Great stuff, thatnks for the excellet information lysanderxiii.

    Maybe there can be a helicopter shot, e.g. the Lynx, though being phased out, is still one of the swiftest helicopters out there.

    A Merlin pic would also look good, imho also the legendary Sea King.

    Best wishes,
    AP :)

    This might go particualrly well with the 17c and its complementary yellow-handed-livery. :wink: 8)

    Anyone got a good pic of Frogmen or something along the lines which the PRS-14 could be put against?

    No one managed to sink any of them.

    I have a fair selection of dive pics that are either taken by myself or are otherwise available for use. Some are earmarked for other projects but when I get a chance I'll see if something works for a landscape format combination with the '14.

  21. #21
    Thanks Geoff. I apologise for not thanking you for the excellent wallpapers. I hope I didn't appear as if I'm moaning, I just love the PRS-14. BTW my fave pic is the Dreadnought. Excellent and keep up the good work mate.

    I don't own a '53 for photographs but Ewan Wilson has very kindly given permission to use some of his, so something like this may well be available soon.



    I have a couple of other ideas for this in progress (RM-RR) so patience requested.

  23. #23
    I like the pictures in general. The last one, however, looks like an open grave, with a casket barely outlined, and something nasty coming out of it. Is that the intended effect?

    Best wishes,
    Bob

    To me, it looks like the front of a ship dipping into the sea. Great composition. I love it.

    Where's the pointy end? And, why so much water towards the front of the picture?

    PS It could be a conning tower coming up, I suppose. It would be a big one.

    The actual pointy end is further up (out of the frame) and mostly underwater ... at time the pic was taken, it is coming back up.

    I don't see it. I don't think there would such a ""^" shape to the water. It would be more like a wall. But, there you have it.

    It's an overhead shot of a amphibious assault vehicle (An AAV 7 or "track" to the USMC folks) on entry into the water. It looks to me as if the picture was taken over the aft end of and LHA or LSD as the track drove off the end of the well deck.

    (An AAV-7 is to heavy to be externally loaded under a helicopter, 46,500 lbs empty, the biggest helicopter we have can only handle a max of around 15,000lbs.)

    The two circular things to the left are the commander's and driver's hatches and the squarish object to the right is the turret with a .50 cal and a 40mm automatic genade launcher. The small circle in the center is the engine intake snorkle.

    Thanks for the clarification. I stand corrected. The information I have on the image is that it was taken "as the AAV is dropped into the water" Apologies for my assuming that must have meant from an airborne carrier
    The full size image is really dramatic.

    Perhaps off an LCT (Landing Craft Tank).

    I still think a heli wallpaper would look good. What with the cetrality of it to mil. ops currently on and the cross connexions with the Army, Navy and Airforce. Combat as well as against the elements also.

    Well done, Geoff.

    I've got lots of helo photos, but they are primarily slides which would have to be scanned. In that lot is a pic of SEALs fast-roping onto a sub. I also have hundreds of digital U/W pics, any of which I'd be happy to donate to the cause. All of them can be made in just about any monitor resolution since the originals are at least 3 megapixels and often 5 or 7.



    That dark area at the lower left is just begging to be filled with a DN! :D

    Eddie, I'll PM you a link to my Photobucket account.

    That would be wonderfull. The hardest part for me is getting a variety of suitable main images with plenty of visual impact that are either royalty free or where I know the source and can get permission for use.

    Thank you

    Link PM'd to Eddie, we'll see if anything strikes him. Thought this would be a good one for the '14:

    Yes, they load and off-load via the front, though it could have been into rough conditions or a storm, accounting for the rouch-looking conditions.

    An alternative, perhaps more likely, is an LSD
    :wink: :lol: - (a miracle of engineering and suprise) or, a larger vessel such as this (An Lcac, USS Kersage):

    The '17C in the first image here is on the Di-Modell Chronisimo, a match made in heaven for the '17C

    Can't see them :( I get this:-

    The requested URL /wpaper/prs2big.jpg was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Is it anything to do with the new look forum?
