  1. Two photographs more : - Light color under the nose and on the front wheel cover. - Puttied joint stripe on the new nose and fuselage junction. - Very weathered and greyish Balkenkreuz. - No yellow B4 octane triangle on fuselage side.
  2. Congratulations for this skin, Ouky ! Some infos about this hybrid Me 262A1a/U3 from III.EJG 2 / Aufklärungskommando Me 262. (Source : Luftwaffe over Czech Territory - 1945, Volume IV : Messerschmitt Me 262 Production & Arado Ar 234 Final Operations by Brown, Poruba and Vladar, published by JaPo in 2012). Me 262 A1-a/U3, W.Nr. 500xxx "White 34" was found abandoned by U.S. troops on the edge of an highway serving briefly for Me 262 operations near Brunnthal, Bavaria. This originally reconnaissance Me 262 suffered damages during pilot training and was repaired, including parts from other aircraft : the nose section with cameras and bulges was removed and replaced by a standard 4-30mm gun model with a different camo. Unpainted areas under the removed nose bulges appear near the number 34. New uncamouflaged wings (natural metal and filler, without Balkenkreuz) and both engines and their nacelles came from different sources too. Many more photographs in the above mentioned book, one of the best of this incredibly detailed and well documented serie !
  3. Hi Tom_Weiss, I hope this will help you for your promising Avia S-92 : https://www.asisbiz.com/il2/Me-262/Messerschmitt-Me-262/pages/Avia-S-92-Schwalbe-Micky-Mouse-V36-Czechoslovak-Air-Force-1947-0A.html
  4. Hi Flowbee, thanks for your skin. It remembers me one I made for the first IL-2 more than fifteen year ago. This 262 is "Yellow 3" (W.Nr. 170032) from III./KG (J) 54 found abandonned at München-Riem. When, during the very late stages of the war, this bomber unit (Totenkopf Keschwader) switched to fighter role, tactical markings B3+xx and diagonal band (yellow for the third group) were overpainted and blue and white Reichverteidigung band and yellow numbers added. Front cowlings of Jumo engines were probably not white but left in natural metal. The contrasted pattern on the fin was frequently seen on Me 262s of Kommando Nowotny.
  5. For test purpose only, exploring the excellent ICDP Template.
  6. Thanks your for the animation of canopy jettison lever on Me 262 in the just released version 3.101b 👍 IMO however, when this lever is activated before bail out, the rear part of the canopy should be ejected together with the mobile hinged part. This Me 262 captured by an US gun camera is spinning to the ground, its pilot (Schallmoser ? I am not sure ) has already parachuted. The central and rear parts of the canopy are not visible.
  7. Hi all, 3D model and official skins of Me 262 are amazing but I noticed a small problem on external view : the two holes on the rear part of the cockpit look very blurred. And the hatch located just under these holes is round, looking different from inside wiew : I modified me262a_1.dds to correct this "bug"and added some details. Just copy the modded file (link below) in IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Moscow\data\graphics\Planes\Me262A\Textures http://www.mediafire.com/file/glrtb79b7c55qwp/me262a_1.dds/file (Mods need to be enabled)
  8. Yes, please! Firing R4Ms ? And bombs ? Many thanks.
  9. A favorable sign ? 😁
  10. Hi Spektre, another view of the crash landed Messerschmitt. I hope this helps you. Source : Luftwaffe Gallery n°3 by Erik Mombeeck, with profiles by Thierry Dekker . (Highly recommanded serie !!). Btw, I'm not sure your two photographs of your post show the same plane seen at two different dates : the camo pattern is not exactly the same and the second Gruppe horizontal bar is slightly higher on the crash landed Bf 109 F (notice the lift holes). According to Jochen Prien (Die Jagdfliegerverbände der Deutschen Luftwaffe, Teil 6/II - "Unternehmen "Barbarossa"), the first Friedrich is "weisse 4" of 4./JG 54, flown by Obfw. Max Stotz.
  11. Does your skin folder name begin with a bottom dash ? Like that : _PzIII-M
  12. Julian, IMO, the name of your Pz III-M skin should finish with &1 and its optionnel skirts skin name with &1#1 Please, try : Totenkopf&1.dds (for your PzIII skin), and : Totenkopf&1#1.dds (for your optionnel skirts). And paste them in data\graphics\skins\_PzIII-M Greetings,
  13. Hi all, Julian, you are right ! Some correctives to my post above : to associate a Pz III M with its appropriate skirts, name the Pz III skin : example&1.dds and the skirts skin : example&1#1.dds and paste them in : IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Moscow\data\graphics\skins\_PzIII-M
  14. @barrydem41 @Hucky and @E69_julian57 Hi all, the skin of the skirts is encrypted in data\Vehicles1.gtp. The name is : _pziii-m02#1.dds (This is the ochre with green streaks. I didn't find the ochre, winter and "Wien" official textures skirts). (Note : you have to manually create the destination folder : \_pziii-m\textures in vehicles folder). an example below with some brown and a fictitious tactical number "112" quickly added on only one armour plate." :
  15. This aircraft was an unassigned Dora-9, W.Nr. unknown, found destroyed with a profusion of schrapnel holes at the bombed Fieseler factory at Kassel, in Hessen, Germany.
  16. Hi Hardin, the textures of wheels (main and rear) of the Ju 88 are not located on the main skin .dds file but on ju88a4_1.dds, a 1024x1024 texture you will find in C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Moscow\data\planes.gtp (use the program unGTP-IL2.exe to open planes.gtp)

    Hi Hardin, that is the technical marking for engine oil with identification details in three lines in yellow : Avia Shell Mittel on a brown triangle edged in yellow. Could be Intava 100 or Rotring too (source : Luftwaffe camouflage and markings Volume 2 by Ken Merrick, Classic publications) Seems often deleted or overpainted on operational aircrafts.
  18. Well done gabuzomeu, many t(h)anks. I also made my own 2ème D.B. Sherman :
  19. Thanks for your answer, Frenchy56 😉
  20. @Trooper117 How to enlist in the Russian Army ?
  21. Hi @dog1, These new parts are optional armour plates of some A8s, not present on previous Fw 190s versions. To make room to these plates, propeller blades textures are removed from skins .dds files to "fw190a8_2.dds". You can find this file in Planes3.gtp and edit it with your graphics program as a mod. As an exemple, I just added RLM 70 paint and fantasy red stencils "f1"(for front), "f2" and "f3".
  22. Thanks for this DD and, over all (IMO)for the very nice 262s !! Unpainted version is my favorite : However, was the putty so yellowish ?
  23. Bonjour, on en parle dans ce fil de discussion qui a été déterré récemment : Peut-être y trouveras tu des infos utiles ? Merci pour tes vœux et bonnes Fêtes à tous !
