  1. I agree with Finkeren and soarfeat : well done raaaid ! By the way, interesting to see when reactions/upvotes are telling a lot of a person's true character...
  2. Breaking News : Lippisch P-13 confirmed !!
  3. Answer maybe found in P-51-D-5 pilot's flight operating instructions : "All airplanes equipped with 85 gallon fuselage fuel tanks may be identified by a white plus (+) sign painted below the serial number on the left hand side of the fuselage." (Actually, not really a white cross on my examples…). End of the off-topic.
  4. Hi all, do you know what means the « + » frequently seen beside this factory stencil ? (And also on some P-38s and P-47s). Related to fuel load ? Thanks.
  5. Three examples of bomb payload : 8 x SC 50, 2 x SC 500 and 1 x SC 1000.
  6. Another example : 56th FG, Boxted.
  7. Does Luftwaffe planes not (yet ?) included in game count ? If so, please, find below, some German aircraft with their official and/popular nicknames : Arado Ar 234 "Blitz", Dornier Do 17, fliegende Bleistift, Focke-Wulf Fw 44 "Stieglitz", Focke-Wulf Fw 189 "Eule" , fliegende Augen, Focke-Wulf Ta 152 "Moskito", Heinkel He 162 "Salamander", Heinkel He 219 "Uhu", Messerschmitt Bf 108 "Taifun", Messerschmitt Me 163 "Komet", Messerschmitt Me 323 "Gigant"; "Leucoplast Bomber", ...and many more...
  8. This is an early version of the VDM logo (usually triangular as seen in game on official Bf 110s skins). Full text is : VEREINIGTE DEUTSCHE METALLWERK A.-G. HAMBURG- ALTONA I made my own approximative version sometimes ago (using Arial font, not totally accurate) but the problem is the propeller blades are very small on the He 111 template, even if 4K resized and when applied on it the logo looks like a white spot
  9. Hi, this plate can be painted as you like on the skin with slight modifications on the alpha layer. If you want you can even remove the holes, as seen on some P-51s.
  10. Trouvé sur internet ! 9 - Top hat and cane : mission de chasseur d’escorte. (la source ci-dessous, en spoiler pour respecter les règles du forum)
  11. Bonjour, de mémoire, les parapluies symbolisent des missions d'escorte (cover) et les balais représentent des missions sweeps, attaque au sol de cibles d'opportunité. Exemple réel : California Cutie (dont ICDP nous propose une skin magnifique) (j’ignore la signification des hauts de forme ? Mais ça doit pouvoir se trouver...).
  12. US-W (EJ536), another Tempest flown by Flt Lt Clostermann from 31/03 to 05/04/1945 while serving in No 56 Sqn : Download here
  13. It is the flare gun port.
  14. 44-72203 "Sweet and Lovely" (WZ-S) of Lt Thain had a red antenna. Unfortunately, I didn’t find colour photographs of "Big Beautiful Belle" showing its antenna mast.
