  1. Amazing screenshot! Those fires really look hot.
  2. I suppose "revers Mistel" would be the proper term?
  3. There differently painted cowling is really cool, but there's something funny going on with the camp pattern, It don't line up.
  4. Ad to that quite a few of the African schemes are absolutely gorgeous!
  5. Oh, heavy fighter on heavy fighter action! Great video!
  6. Jason wrote in the post when he posted it that he had left all the layers in an un-collapsed state. The others have their layers largely merged. Perhaps the P40 template is a tad lager than the others?
  7. Oh yes, I remember that one. I used to have it as a faux Bf 110 againt my I-16 before we got an actual 110 (and a realistic I-16).
  8. He state that "some 400 Hurricanes took part in the defence of the North". Murmansk map, just sayin'...
  9. Looks like the RoF-type damage models would do quite well on them.
  10. I guess we should be pleased they even know it's a plane...
  11. I wonder how the damage model for a Cessna will look.
  12. Just to keep on the original topic, here's a nice shot of a field modified Hurricane, having had the Hispanos ripped out and replaces with a single ShVAK 20 mm auto-cannon in each wing. The Russians complained that the Hurricane was too slow, and judging by the picture it isn't hard to see why. This one is weighted down with rocket rails and winter paint, and the torn engine housing plates and layers of soot must have mate it exceptionally draggy.
  13. Wow, that's a beauty Obelix! Download link?
  14. And here I was coming to the tread hoping for a production Gloster Gladiator style spade grip joystick....
  15. The sea was patrolled by long range aircrafts. I envision some very interesting fights between heavy fighters like P-3 and Bf 110s over the grey sea. 5 most common leand-lease aircrafts received by the Soviets by number: Aircobra: 4 747 Hurricane: 2 952 Boston: 2 908 King Cobra: 2 400 P-40: 2 097 The reason I mention Hurricane specificity is that a lot of Hurricanes was delivered by ship to Murmansk from the UK, while the Aircobras were often flown in via Alaska. Thus Hurricanes were typically flown a lot up North, at their entry point.
  16. Now that would be cool! A lot of the almost 3 thousand Hurricanes the VVS received served there too. Seriously though, the Hurricane is a serious contender for a Murmansk map, having both a colourful story up North and serving in large numbers both with the Soviet airforce and the naval aviation.
