  1. Many thanks @Pierre64................Great !!!πŸ˜‰
  2. Hello Pierre , No, I do not know (not made research on that point, frankly speaking) ...it is not shown on all aircraft.
  3. You are right both Rjel and SOLIDKREATE. Specification porject numbers are related to ordered contracts between Department of US ARMY AIR FORCE, North American constructor and various factories (such as Inglewood CA) So, it is may be related to serial numbers blocks, period of consttruction and factories. Each time, Department of US ARMY AIR FORCE, ordered a quantoty of planes to a factory, a new contract was engaged.....and so on, a new number edited.....but reading documents show that it is not certain. examples: (Rjel) P-51D-20 = AAF. SPEC. PROJ. NO. 92917-R - 44-63632 - CONFIRMED.HIST.PHOTO P-51D-20 = AAF. SPEC. PROJ. NO. 92917-R - 44-63694 - CONFIRMED.HIST.PHOTO but P-51D-10 = AAF. SPEC. PROJ. NO. 32792-N - 44-14937 is also related to serial number 44-72518 (????) Ok, now, I need some aspirin tablet !!!πŸ˜„ FOR SURE, direct documents are still in the Department of US ARMY AIR FORCE in Washington (?) they have archives and if this informations are not "classified"...it is, may be, possible to get them...πŸ˜‰
  4. Myself and friends made research without success. The specification number depended of the US ARMY AIR FORCE DEPARTMENT and most probably, details exist somewhere .... For sure, that number change from aircraft type and factory, but seems it follow serial numbers. My ONLY source are decal sheets from AEROMASTER and Carl Molesworth work and each plane I made for "BLUE DIAMONDS" or "IWO JIMA" follows the numbers I found there. But then, if I does not have that source, the only way is to find a close serial number and apply same Specification number......(with some possible mistake). Anyway, this is just a detail on a skin πŸ˜‰ Sorry for my bad English !!!πŸ˜“
  5. Well done brother !!!!πŸ˜„ Just to say that construction number, does not appear on the factory Stencil blocks....it is the specification project number. Please compare the picture here below And you will see that plane is a P-51D-25-NA (plane in the game is a P-51D-15-NA) and serial number is correct with your document ( planes sent unassembled from Inglewood california factory to Australia), but construction number does not appear on Factory stencil. It is only the ARMY AIR FORCE SPECIFICATION NUMBER. Anyway, your job is a great help and we will have all necessary documents for the serial numbers!!!πŸ˜‰
  6. Second plane of Volume 2 NΒ° 550 - "MADAM WHAM - DAM" - Flown by Major Harrison E. Shipman from 458th FS / 506th FG SOFT SIDE.................> HOT SIDE...........................>
  7. Yes Solidkreate !!! the only big difficulty is to find the good document for each plane and report the right Speficication project number, depending of period of fabrication/ factory and type of the plane. Regarding serial number it is much more easy. And many thanks for your outstanding work helping all skinners!!!πŸ˜‰
  8. Speficiation Proj. number is not the same depending of period and type of plane version. On my skins, you can see different numbers...πŸ˜‰
  9. Third volume will contain 3 or 4 skins maximum πŸ˜‰
  10. Hello Yankee_One, At this moment, I have to finish 2nd volume and 3rd volume πŸ˜‰ Later, I will check what skin must be modified. Seems that some of them does not needs modifications (no big mistakes). See you nextπŸ˜‰
  11. Will make Burma P-47 "Razorback" in Burma when available πŸ˜‰
  12. Next volume starting (even if we does not have chance to see Pacific theatre coming soonπŸ˜₯) Upgraded Skin version : - On this one, corrected (again) size of US Stars on fuselage...it is not a large correction but enough to change a lot general overview. - Also, corrected position of US Star on upper wing (This correction must be done on ALL P-51D). - Corrected aluminium transition on parts of the template. - Corrected light reflexion on control surface (Fabric made with dopped aluminium paint) NΒ° 600 - "TALLAHASSEE LASSY" - Plane shared between Major Tom De Barnette CO. of 462th FS and Lieutnant Colonel Harley Brown Deputy CO. of 506th FG the middle plane on the picture, seen from right side...
  13. Sorry, but I play ONLY IL-2 serie....so I complain on what I love.πŸ˜‰
