  1. The Albatros is definitely better in IL2 than it seems based on historical (and modern) accounts of pilots. Then again, I feel that the Pfalz flies better than the Alb, so there are definitely some deviations from history. But, it is a game, at the end of the day. I've often thought the RoF Albatros was set up to be the perfect 'beginner plane'. It'll turn with most Entente planes, its handling is really straightforward, it has great energy retention, powerful armament, gets out of a spin really nicely, etc. etc. It's only glaring weakness is its speed against the Entente fast-movers, and, of course, it's in big trouble if a Camel catches it. All the same seems to ring true in FC (as you'd expect). It would be nice in the future to see some FM updates (to all the planes) to be a bit more historical, and I hope the possibility is there to approach the devs about such changes, but for the time being the focus is releasing all the already-planned content for FC (and rightly so!)
  2. I painted up one of my own Dr.I's like this - here's how it came out. I think it looks closest to your No.3 example...
  3. Yeah, shame that you can't kit out the squadron in the vanilla career mode. But, I do love PWCG for the skin assignments. Whenever I'd get made a C.O I used to design my own Sqn markings and kit the whole sqn out in them! Good fun. Another reason I do squadron skin-packs is for Multiplayer. JG1, US103 and J5 are certain to be using their historical mounts, and I like to think it may encourage more squadrons to form in the long run!
  4. Do you mean for quick missions? Or a possible FC career mode?
  5. I try to manage my own thread with 'Packs' - E.G, several skins at once with a cover image, and individual images in a spoiler. But, yes, the best place to browse is GCF's bundle - more likely that other pilots will have the skins in there, too!

  8. Plenty of cool Jastas to paint! J5 springs immediately to mind. I'll hopefully be keeping the XIIIs coming as well - looking forwards to some more colourful dogfights
  9. Hey Hangman, Just as Talbot says, unfortunately it won't self-install, you'll have to drop the .DDS files into the right folder. The directory should be as follows: C:/ - Program Files(x86) - 1C Game Studios - IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad - Data - graphics - skins - Spad13 Hope that helps! In the meantime - how about some D.VII F skins! Rittm. Karl Bolle (D.VII F): Download: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1M2Q1k6IO9hJdsUnls9JPde3zLjGtBIqq/view?usp=sharing Ltn.

Lindenberger historically flew a D.IIIaü powered D.VII, this skin is a semi-historical representation.
  10. Huh. That might be a good autobiography title... Larner: Down From The Perch

  16. The typical get-together is on Sundays, on the JAsta 5 Flugpark server. Can't remember the start-end dates off the top of my head, 1900 GMT to 0000 GMT, I think.
  17. Good fun tonight. Talbot and I gave the Work-In-Progress 28th Aero skins a test-drive.
  18. Wow, well there you go!! It's gotta be Tiger Squadron, then Gimme a shout if you ever do decide to set up 74, I'll get out the ol' book of Squadron Markings.
  19. S.E.5a is absolutely a squadron machine. I'd say the thing to do is think about setting up an S.E.5a Squadron! There are plenty interesting historical squadrons out there to choose from (No.56, No.60, No.74, etc), and if you decide to go down the 'Historical Skin' route, I should be able to help out with the correct Sqn. markings...
  20. Working on it! Gotta find the profiles 1st
