IL-2 AM 38 skins

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Its being some time since I post a new IL2 skin but I had some time left lastly so here we go:

 

IL2M42 from 606th ShAP.(The description was In sovietwarplanes.com but looks like the site is down or no longer available).

The rudder had the remains of a white oblique line, so this aircraft mostly pertained to 214th ShAD or cannibalized parts of an aircraft from that air division. There is a strange sand color applied to the right wing, maybe due to a repair. Apart from that, it has a lovely dotted camo scheme and I took the liberty to camouflage the 37mm nacelles to make them more aggressive. Hope you like it.

This scheme is based on a profile posted there by Massimo Tessitori. All the credits to him.

Regards.

PS: This is the first aircraft in my series that use a new template for the nose aiming lines. I created the template based on different data recollected on different books and looks like a big improvement of my previous lines. I will be updating all the previous skins with this lines but It'll take some time. Since then, enjoy  ;)

Hi, Peterla. :) 
Very well done template, beautiful and interesting skin. Thank you for your attention to soviet aircrafts, and to il-2 especially. Wait your next work.

Peterla, beautiful skin as always! Yes, unfortunately the sovietwarplanes site is down now, although the archived forum can still be accessed at http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/board/index.php. Regarding the Mongolian Il-2 - nice job sjelljr! These were arrows (swept-winged two-seaters) that the Soviets gave to the Mongolians after the war against Japan in August of 1945. Evidently, the Soviets thought it would be easier to just leave them in the East than to take them back to Europe, where the Il-2 was being replaced by the Il-10 anyway. The Mongolian Il-2s may have served until as late as 1954, making the Mongolians amongst the last users of the Il-2.

 

Best Regards,

 

Jason

A 4k replacement of an historic "Plain Jane" IL-2 I did earlier.  It was destroyed on the ground at Vyazma-Gradina.   Original post:  https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/13717-il-2-am-38-skins/page-5

Thanks once again to ICDP for the template.

 

Cheers!

Playing a career BoS on Il-2 (42), made an appropriate 4k skin-pack (9 skins with numbers from "1 white" to "9 white"). Typical coloring and writing of numbers for the period 1942/43 were taken as a basis.

Because skins 4K, then for them it is desirable to use the normal map from the template author ICDP: http://www.mediafire.com/file/b6vmuvscvby6jsd/IL2m42_B.dds

How are some of you getting the rear gunner field mod on some of these m42 single seat il-2's? In game I see no option for that and I own all 3 planes (all 3 theaters for the game)
