  1. This is a semi-historical Fw190 A3 skin loosely based on and inspired by a picture of the Fw190 A5 of Hauptman Erich Leie Stab I./JG51 in Russia 1943. The massive kill score is due to me keeping score while flying an offline campaign using this aircraft and is not historical as neither is the 7 on the cowling. I just liked it that way. When and if I find more original photos of Leie's aircraft I will do an A5 in the future with historical markings. https://www.mediafire.com/file/z31cyp62d9w5t2h/FW190a3_4096_Stab_I.JG51_v21.dds/file
  2. Looking great! Really like your War Thunder skins and your use of colours is always outstanding. Hope you find the time to do more.
  3. lol That is high praise indeed, thank you! Still busy trying to salvage 3D after the last patch. All the ground objects are floating. Don't think I can fix it this time. I did do a K4 and very slowly progressing with an A5 during testing possible fixes.
  4. Your presentation is off the chart. Can't wait to see the skins in game. Thanks for sharing!
  5. Pretty sure that should be Schleppen which means towing. When towing push the elevators down.
  6. Lol I thought it was supposed to be there. No chance of me fixing anything until I get the latest patch working.
  7. This picture on the net caught my attention due to the fact that it showed bare metal on a Dora. Again there is a lot of speculation involved as the original was almost certainly an artists impression taken from a black and white photo. After a lot of different attempts I ended up with this skin. I think the metal turned out well and is worth a look. The polished finish is purely for aesthetic effect and, from a German perspective, historically unlikely at this stage of the war. Even the use of bare metal is a sign of how desperate the Luftwaffe situation was in Germany during early 1945. https://www.mediafire.com/file/s2ut1j718beetsi/Fw190D9_Public_I.JG2_white_16_v25.dds/file
  8. Yes I could, only this time I spent more time getting the right balances for both the template and the Alpha. A much more natural effect I think. I will update yellow 13 tomorrow. I set the Alpha output to between 4 and 216 and on the template layers, desaturated the metal chips and set them to a darker mid grey. This combination removed the over reflections and the glow in the dark effect. https://www.mediafire.com/file/2yzqyu0fuxjx32w/fw190d9_skin_JG4_Black_1_v4.dds/file
  9. Don't know if anyone is interested in this as this skin is already in the game but it is one of my favourites. Spudkopf extracted it and added the Haken Kreutz to it. It is a great skin but I just like a bit more radical weathering and reflections so I ran it through my template. Anyway here it is to judge for yourself. https://www.mediafire.com/file/6xhpkfwq7t2ndxo/fw190d9_skin4_yellow_13_v2.dds/file Update for more natural reflection.. http://www.mediafire.com/file/widdg9z97jegcv4/fw190d9_skin4_yellow_13_v3.dds/file
  10. OK, here we go, a full 602 Squadron. Let me know if any need fixed. https://www.mediafire.com/file/0ddf78nica5phj5/SpitfireMkIXe_4k-602_A_v101.zip/file
  11. Sure thing. Will dust off the Spitfire template and give it a once over before doing the skin set.
  12. Thanks for your kind comment! You are right about the canopy, it is so racy looking. I kept meaning to use it but am on auto pilot as usual. Excuse for another screenshot though..
  13. This model is off the chart, one of the finest I've seen but I gave it a go anyway. https://www.mediafire.com/file/yu6xjwwzbrxqcta/Fw190D9_Public_TA152_Willi_Retschke_Stab_JG301_v15.dds/file
  14. Thanks for the tip - I got the English Kindle version, now I will be able to read much faster. Excellent! The story about your grandfather was really good. I can't get over the fact that the Allied air power was so great that they would attack lone civilians on the ground.
  15. What a brilliant find! The book is outstanding even though I have to read it slowly. The bit about the 12 year old boy being strafed resonates as the same thing happened to my Grandmother and mother while looking to buy food from farms in the countryside. They were walking along a country dirt road with a basket containing some eggs and also berries they had picked when a bright, shiny silver fighter aircraft attacked them. It made several passes firing at them as they were lying in the roadside ditch. My mother who was 8 years old at the time said she saw the pilot's face, he was laughing at them. This happened just south of Berlin. I can't remember the name of the town they lived in. Later on they escaped from Berlin by train. She said that the sound of the guns grew louder by the day like distant thunder. She left with her mother when the Russian guns were 30km away from Berlin.
