  1. Thank you all for your kind comments- I really enjoyed putting these together & am happy to hear others will enjoy them! Once we get the G6-Late aircraft & template available down the road I hope to do some additional packs. Currently I am working on some ETO Fw-190A4/5's...

  3. I'll add my hearty 'thank you' as well- the sim is absolutely gorgeous visually, an absolute blast to play- and keeps getting better!! Recently I've been having a go at skinning with GIMP and that's opened up an entirely new way to chew through hours of time in a most enjoyable way. Keep up the great work, Team- thanks for all you do!
  4. Thanks, Hanu- would it be possible- with RaFiGer's blessing- to make that GIMPable version available to those of us without PS? It looks amazing- and I would love to have an opportunity to put together some G6 skins- especially with BoN on the horizon.

  6. It seems that some folks using GIMP haven't had any problem opening RaFiGer's 109G6 4K template- but I have been unable to do so with either GIMP 2.8 or now the newer GIMP 2.10 version. I don't have issues with some others' psd templates (ICDP's for example). Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas to assist? Thank you!
  7. hmmm...almost a Rorschach test item there! Looks kind of like a floppy boot to me- but I didn't find anything close to it on a quick search around the web. Gorgeous Thunderbolt collection by the way!! Keep up the amazing work
  8. B-239, Beaufighter & Do-335 for me...Beaufighter if I had to pick one...
  9. Thanks so much for White 16, Rap- she's a beauty! And thanks for sharing your talents and generous spirit- greatly appreciated, Sir
  10. If I might throw one up for consideration as a future project- this baby is listed as a K4 from JG 53...interesting paint job there! Thanks for all you do, Rap!
  11. Awesome to have you bringing your talents here- very much looking forward to checking this thread- thanks!
  12. I'm stoked for the Normandy plan- love the map and aircraft set! Looking forward to the razorback, 51B/C, AI B26 and Typhoon for the West- and the A6 and 410 for both fronts, for sure. Pre-ordered BoN, the Hurri and Yak-9- excited to support this dev team in all it's amazing work! Having been around the IL2 community for many years- I'm always amazed and saddened by the amount of negativity and complaining that goes on. This is a business- a niche business at that. It seems that a lot of folks have no understanding of the business environment, financial constraints and technical obstacles involved. I get it- I'm over 50 years old and can be a bit of "get your frisbee off my lawn" guy- but the whining about not getting what you want for Christmas every time something new is presented is just so mind-numbing. I, too, look forward to the Pacific down the road if and when it's possible. My wish list for BoX includes lots of other stuff as well- just like everyone else. But on Thanksgiving Day here in the US I choose to say a hearty "Thank You!" to Jason and everyone on the team for working so hard to provide this awesome combat flight sim- it is amazing- and I will enjoy each part of it and support whatever path it takes going into the future. Keep up the great work!!!
  13. Fantastic work as always, Pat- thanks very much!! Always look forward to seeing what comes out of your paintshop!
  14. A great many thanks to all the folks out there spending time to make all these fantastic skins we enjoy so much...it's a ball watching threads, following skinners and opening these 'presents' when they are made available to us. A big thanks as well to the dev's who created this amazing sim- and make it possible for the community to share the amazing work from these talented individuals here. It's probably safe to say most of us grew up fascinated by the history and paging through books with black and white photos of the combat aircraft we love- now we get to tool around the virtual skies in these babies- it's an awesome thing. Thank you- keep up the great work everyone!!
  15. I had issues after 3.201 as well...tried all the fixes mentioned previously- had to go with the full re-install last night and am back on track. It's a bit of a pain- but when all else fails...
  16. Not so much 'speculation' as desire: Me-410 late Typhoon Yak-3 or La-7 Hurricane Love all the good stuff going on with the sim- and very excited for the BoBP stuff in the pipeline!!!
  17. Beauties- the lot of 'em...thanks very much for these, Pat!! I appreciate you making the effort to provide the extra skins to fill out the patrol as well.
  18. New Guinea always made the most sense to me as a first step into the PTO as well...P-38, P-39, P-40, B-25 will be available in some form right off the bat...obviously not an easy task whatsoever- but with some maps, the Ki-43, A6M, Ki-61 and a twin bomber or 2 and you're cooking with gas without the technical delays in development of the carrier system. Love everything we have so far- and don't want to at all seem disparaging or ungrateful in the least bit- just thinking out loud...
  19. Wow! That is really going down the rabbit hole! Very interesting article and inspired research- thanks, Poochnboo.
  20. Love 'em, TW- thanks very much for adding these great VVS skins to your extensive catalog!
  21. Beautiful skins, PC- thanks very much! Your download link is a bit off- but the A&A site makes the pack easy to find. I hope you will consider doing more skins with this excellent template!
  22. Thanks for your interest in this project, senseispcc- but it has become unnecessary and I have abandoned it. The reason I started it (while trying to learn GIMP from scratch!) was to produce some skins for the VVS P-39's in the Kuban early 1943 era- especially the 45th IAP. FoxbatRU recently released a FANTASTIC skinpack of 45th IAP & 16th GIAP Airacobras from this era of fighting in the Kuban 1943 that cover these 2 particular aircraft- and several more. If I could have placed a special order for a skin pack- it would be the one he created! I really appreciate his efforts- and the results are much more aesthetically pleasing than the results I was getting!!! I am indebted to him- and highly encourage folks to get a hold of his collection of skins in this thread (and the Russian language forum as well): I would also like to highly recommend the book "Attack of the Airacobras: Soviet Aces, American P-39s, and the Air War Against Germany" by Dmitriy Loza (a Sherman tank commander for the USSR during WW2, and historian) Translated and edited by James F. Gebhardt. It has a lot of great anecdotes and excellent information on the P-39 units: the evolution of tactics, technical issues with the P-39 and how the VVS addressed them, airfield set-ups, mission types, interesting pilots, etc. It covers the way P-39 operations evolved from late 1942 and operations in the Spring of 1943 in the Kuban through the fall of Berlin in 1945. Thank you again to FoxbatRU for his tremendous skinpack!
