This will be my first guide, and I saw that the "LA Noire-Nicholson
Electroplating" would be a great opportunity to test my skills as a FAQ-writer
since it is not to comprehensive to write about only one mission from a game
instead of writing a full guide on the game.

In this faq there will be spoilers. I am also soon updating it, because I have
missed a clue and probably because of that also missed a trophy. There is a 
trophy list for this case at the end of the guide.

Hope you enjoy the guide as much as I have making it, and please let me know of
all the things that I should have done different :)

    you on where this location is.

    # Follow the right hand wall and you will find two police officers calling

      very simple, just rotate the inner wheels K so it matches up with the
      outer wheels H. Then just rotate the wheel by the outer ring, stopping 
      at the letters in the newspaper articel.
    # When your done with this head back about halfway to the exit (where there
      is a way in the rubbel, on your lefthandside going back) Here you will
      find a piece of a shirt, inspect it to get an adress.
    # Next, go in the way to your left and follow it to the end, here a 
      policeman will call you over. Inspect his clue and match up the letters.
 4. On exiting the Nicholson plant you will run into Fred Nicholson.

    # Inside the aircraft cockpit there is a note with coordinates, these can
      be checked out at the navigation table, also in the cockpit.
    # The office is located directly above where you got in to the hangar.
      In here are some pictures that need inspecting. Other than that there is
      nothing of interest.

    the spycamera.
13. Talk to the guy at the front desk (watch commander James Hopkins)
14. Head downstairs and talk to Pinkner
    # Examine the photos. You will find the ring and wristwatch on the 2nd
      picture, the tie pin on the 3rd and you link Tomako and McLellan on the
      4th. On the 5th you will find a partial address that will match up to

16. Go to the house in photograph. (3941 west second street)
17. The door to the house is open so go inside.
18. It reaks of gasoline. 
    # Examine the gas-can by the front door.
    # If you examine the second gas can you see footsteps going towards an
      other door. 
    # In the sleeping alcove there is a airline ticket and a passport.
      When you check the passport you find out that Hangstrom and McLellan are
      the same person. Then someone chucks a molotov into the room.
19. Shoot the gastank by the stow to blowa hole into the next apartment.
20. From here get out the window that Biggs opens.
21. Outside Mapes is waiting, and a carchase begins.
    Just stayon him. After a while some cars from Hughes security will come to
    Mapes`s aid. Knock them of the road and follow Mapes all the way to Hughes
    Aircrafts.

22. Here you need to take out the security before getting to Mapes.
    Take out the first 4 and another car will come with more guys. When you 
    move into the lot there might come a guard from behind.
23. Move into the hangar. There are two guys coming from inside the Hercules
    Aircraft and a third stays in the plane. You can take them all out from the
    doorway. When you go around to the other side of the plane six new guyes
    will put you under heavy fire. Watch out for the one on the wing. After the
    fire fight there is a cut-scene with the chief and then the case closes.
