Yak-1 "М. Д. Баранов" Flown by ace MikhaiDmitrievich Baranov (Михаил Дмитриевич Баранов), Summer 1942

Mikhail was the leading Soviet ace during the Battle of Stalingrad with 24 victories. 

Mikhail Baranov was part of the 183 IAP (Istrevitelnyy Aviatsionyy Polk = Fighter Aviation Regiment) of the 269 IAD (Istrevitelnaya Aviatsionnaya Diviziya = Fighter Aviation Division) of the 8 VA (Vozdushnaya Armiya = Air Army).

He died in an accident on 15 January 1943 while testing a Yak-1.

I know this plane is already in the game but it is filled with flaws so I decided to make my own version. 

This skin is Historically accurate.

This skin was made with the .PSD files provided by 777 studios and 1C game studios.

This museum and the skin have been moved to a new location. You can find the new location right here.

 

Enjoy the new museum!

Bf-109F-4 "Black 1" Flown by ace Oberleutnant Max-Hellmuth Ostermann, May 1942. W.Nr. 13088

He claimed a total of 102 victories in over 300 combat missions. Most victories where achieved over the eastern front, eight where claimed over the western front and one over Belgrade.

Max-Hellmuth received the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves for his 62nd earial victorie on 12 march 1942. He was the second JG54 pilot to reach 100 kills (Hans Phillip was the first) and the sixth overall. 

He was part of JG54. He was killed in combat on August 9th 1942.

Why his plane had this strange camouflage is not known. What is even stranger is that the "White" is not even white, it is a light grey. 

This skin is Historically accurate.

This skin was made with the .PSD files provided by 777 studios and 1C game studios.

Take it just as a pure imaginary hypothesis, but maybe it was to be able to choose a side in rolling questions, probably more likely in escaping situations, in order to fit the color of the ground seen from above ?.. Winter right, summer left... And why wasn't it white ? Don't know but maybe some pilots found this color way too reflective, and so too blinding ?

 

Anyway, thanx a lot for your beautiful skins, and for sharing ! :)

Bf 109G-4 "Yellow 9" Flown by the aces Ján Režňák, Vladimir Krisko and Stefan Martis April-May1943. W.Nr. 19347

Jan Reznak was the most successful Slovak air force pilot. He scored a total of 32 victories. 

This plane was part of 13./JG52. Pilots where not assigned a specific plane, therefore this plane was also flown by other aces like Vladimir Krisko (9 Victories) and Stefan Martis (5 Victories).

This fighter fell into Russian hands when a 12 victory ace defected to the Soviets on 9 September 1943.

This skin is Historically accurate.

This skin was made with the .PSD files provided by 777 studios and 1C game studios.

IL-2M "Нельсон Георгиевич Степанян" Flown by Nelson Gevorkovich Stepanyan (Нельсон Георгиевич Степанян), 1944

 

Nelson Stepanyan was a Soviet Armenian Sturmovik pilot during WW2. He was twice awarded with the military title of the "Hero of the Soviet Union" , the highest title in the former USSR.

Soviet sources assert that Stepanyan undertook no less than 239 combat sorties, sunk 53 ships thirteen of which he did alone, destroyed 80 tanks, 600 armoured vehicles, and 27 aircraft.

During his final sortie in Latvia on December 14th 1944 his plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire, Nelson Stepanyan rammed his damaged plane into a German warship killing himself and his navigator Captain Alexander Rumyantsev.

His death devastated the rest of his squadron. His fellow pilots sent the following letter to his parents:

 

"Stepanyan was a simple and modest man, close and beloved by all; he was a father and teacher to all of us, a friend and a commander....We all wept when Nelson Gevorgovich failed to return on that fateful day. They say that tears bring comfort. But the few tears of a soldier, like the red-hot drops of metal, burn the heart and call for vengeance."

 

Nelson was part of the 47th ShAP when he flew this plane. 

This skin is Historically accurate.

This skin was made with the .PSD files provided by 777 studios and 1C game studios.

Terrific skins Mr Hellhound, and nicely presented by Lothar29 as well (like your avatar ;)) The trouble with what you guys are doing is that you are raising the standards so far that hardly anyone can match them!

 

I always liked the tatzelwurms, thanks in particular for the Hahn scheme, I agree with your interpretation of the photos.

 

Lt Detlev Rohwer's F-2 from Stab I/JG3 in 1941 would also make an interesting and unusual option. There are pictures in "JG3 Udet in WW2" by Prien & Stemmer page 166, plus various interpretations on the web you can look at to see if you are interested. Paint should be the same base colours and wear and fade as Hahn's, I would have thought. I would not be surprised if they became operational at about the same time.

 

That and Hahn together would make a terrific pairing for a couple of 109s to fly together.

Heey guys, 

 

Thanks for your comments. Comments like these still make me happy  :biggrin:

 

unreasonable,

 

I have taken a look at the skin and it is indeed amazing. I will make it next. I could not find the page in that book though. I would appreciate it if you could PM me the page and all other info about Detlev Rohwer in the book.

I have also done some research to the pilot. Hauptmann Hans Von Hahn was Gruppenkommandeur of I./JG3 and Leutnant Detlev Rohwer was his technical officer and pilot. They definitely flew together.

Since you are keen to do that I will try to find out where I can get a good quality scan of the photos in the book. They might be on the web - I will look and see if the book photos are any different or better quality. I do not have a scanner and the one in the condo office is lousy. I have also seen some biographical information of the web somewhere.

 

Give me a couple of days to work on it and I will assemble anything I can find.

Bf-109F-2 "Black Chevron and Circle" Flown by ace Leutnant Detlev Rohwer, Late 1941

 

He was credited with 38 confirmed aerial victories. 26 on the Eastern Front, and 12 over the Western Front.

Rohwer was Gruppen-Technical Officer of 1./JG 3.

Detlev Rohwer received the "Knights Cross of the Iron Cross" on Octobet 5th 1941.

Detlev Rohwer was Hans von Hahn's Technical officer and possibly also his wingman at some point. 

 

Due to a small number of WW2 pictures I had to improvise the pattern on the wings and fuselage. I have attempted to make the patterns as realistic as possible while matching the information I could find. I have chosen to make the wing-pattern similar to Hans von Hahn's plane. Although, I have made sure they are not the same. For the other unknown parts of the plane, I used a combination of von Hahn's plane as well as other JG3 Bf 109F's. 

 

This skin is mostly historically accurate. This is because of the small amount of images available.

This skin was made with the .PSD files provided by 777 studios and 1C game studios.

Special thanks to unreasonable for helping gather information on the plane.

Just seen the Rohwer F2 ...that was quick! Very nice, will go well with the Hahn. While not perhaps the most beautiful aircraft paint scheme, it is very interesting as one of those belonging to a more average LW officer, and certainly distinctive.

 

Some other versions of this on the web look too much like giraffes IMHO, your softer finish looks better.

 

Now just imagine a whole Gruppe of F2s, each with a different pattern of the same basic paint options.... you would think these people did not have a war to fight!

Bf 109F-2 "Black/White Chevrons and Bar" Flown by ace Oberst Dietrich Hrabak, Summer 1941

 

Dietrich Hrabak has scored a total of 125 victories during his entire career. 

He was Gruppenkommandeur of II./JG54 when flying this plane. 

 

Some part of the plane where not on any pictures. Therefore, I had to use parts of other planes to create the complete pattern. I have attempted to make the patterns as realistic as possible while matching the information I could find. I used the patterns from other planes from JG54 with a similar camouflage pattern.

 

This skin is historically accurate.

This skin was made with the .PSD files provided by 777 studios and 1C game studios.

IL-2 "Red 5" Pilot Unknown, Probably 1942/1943

!!! Major Skin Update Involving all my skins !!!

 

It is important to read this and follow the steps to ensure that you install the update properly and so that you can still see the skins on other people's planes. 

 

Hello there fellow pilots,

I have made numerous updates to my skins. These involve name changes and updates to the skins themselves.

I have done this for a few reasons.

  1. Update the skins to make them more accurate and realistic.
  2. Reduce the number of files on ones PC.
  3. Organise the files better.
  4. Now you can choose whether you want to see the version with our without hakenkreuz. If someone else has the version WITH hakenkreuz and YOU have the version WITHOUT hakenkreuz, then you will see his skin on his plane but WITHOUT hakenkreuz. (And the other way around).

To install the updated skins follow the following steps:

  1. In your skins folder delete the following skin files:
    • Bf 109F-2 Hans Philipp Swastika

    • Bf 109F-2 Hans Philipp

    • Bf 109F-2 Hans von Hahn Hakenkreuz

    • Bf 109F-2 Hans von Hahn

    • Bf 109F-2 Werner Molders

    • Bf 109F-2 Werner Molders Hakenkreuz

    • Bf109F2 Detlev Rohwer Hakenkreuz

    • Bf109F2 Detlev Rohwer

    • Bf109F2 Dietrich Hrabak Hakenkreuz

    • Bf109F2 Dietrich Hrabak

    • Bf-109F-4 Max-Hellmut Ostermann Hakenkreuz

    • Bf-109F-4 Max-Hellmut Ostermann

    • Bf109F4_Franz_Stigler Swastika

    • Bf109F4_Franz_Stigler

    • Bf109G2 Jan Reznak Hakenkreuz

    • Bf109G2 Jan Reznak

    • Fw 190A-3 Armin Faber Swastika

    • Fw 190A-3 Armin Faber

    • IL2M42 Nelson Stepanyan

    • IL2M42 Red 5

    • Yak1s69 Mikhail Baranov

  2. Download the new skin pack (all my skins are included): http://www.mediafire.com/download/m6remr61e0385fy/Complete+skin+pack.zip
  3. Choose whether you want the version with or without hakenkreuz. (do not install both!)
  4. Go to your IL-2 BoS folder.
  5. Copy the folder named “skins” (in the downloaded file) and past it in the folder “IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics”. All the files will automatically be placed in the right place. None of the other skin files in your skins folder will be affected!
  6. Done! Enjoy the improved skins. 

I hope it is not to much trouble for you to implement this update. 

 

All the links under the original posts are also being changed.

The download link has been changed if the following line is underneath the download link: !!! Make sure to follow the instruction inside the .zip file to prevent confusion and ensure a proper install !!!

Special thanks to Bearcat for changing the download links.

!!! Hans von Hahn Skin UPDATE !!!

 

Hello there fellow pilots,

A few days ago I accidentally found a few new pictures of Hans von Hahn's plane.

These pictures provided some new information on the plane and therefore I decided to update the skin.

Here is a list with changes.

  1. Changed the circle pattern on the vertical stabilizer.
  2. Made the circle pattern a bit more blurry while maintaining the correct colour. 
  3. Added Victory markings on the right side of the rudder. 
  4. Changed the camouflage pattern on the right side of the rudder
  5. Added a small metal plate on the wings leading edge (both wings)
  6. Slightly changed the camouflage pattern on the engine cowling. 
  7. Made the black border on Hans von Hahn's personal emblem slightly thicker so the red stays within the emblem instead of outside of the border. 

You can download the updated skin via the original download link: http://www.mediafire.com/download/6kifgdaxdakygcu/Bf+109F-2+Hans+von+Hahn.zip

 

Hopefully, this will be my last update on this skin. 

 

Here is a new picture with the improvements.

Hello there fellow pilots,

 

In the past few months I have made 13 beautiful skins. each with its own unique camouflage pattern. While doing this I have received a lot of support from you guys and I am very grateful for this. 

I have made all the skins I originally planed and a few more. I have come to a point where I don't really know what skins to make next. Therefore, I am calling for your help. 

I would like you guys to tell me what skins you would like me to make. Since I want to keep the same quality and historical accuracy, I have a few requirements for the skins. These requirements are the same for all skins I have made and will make.

  1. The planes was used in WWII(it does not matter if the pilot is known as long as there is evidence the plane was used in WW2 and it follows the other rules)
  2. The skin must be for the same plane or the planes must not have a visual difference. (Not a Bf 109G-6 skin for the Bf 109G-2 BUT Bf 109F-2 skin for the Bf 109F-4 is fine, Trop versions are also fine)
  3. There must be enough source material to work from. There must be more then 2 WW2 pictures of the plane showing the same camouflage pattern. More is always better! Preferably both sides are shown.
  4. There is no restriction on what plane it is as long as it is in the game.
  5. The project is a challenge for me.

It can also be useful to know a bit about how I work:

More then half of my time when making the skin is used for research!

When choosing a skin I never look for a skin that looks good or was flown my an ace / famous pilot. I always look for skins that have a lot of pictures taken in WW2. 

When making the skin I have a very clear rule: "if there are a million pictures showing a specific feature (for instance a yellow rudder) but I can find 1 picture taken in WW2 (and I am sure it is the same plane) showing no such thing, then I will always use the WW2 picture over the other pictures". 

I always distrust modern pictures, illustrations and images. I trust WW2 pictures.

 

Please don't make big posts with a lot of pictures. Just put one pictures in the request post and add the links to the other pictures and sites!

 

I am looking forward to your requests.

 

It is completely possible that you come across a picture showing one of my earlier skin to be incorrect. I would also like to see these pictures.

Hello to you too, peterla. 

 

As you know the Junkers Ju 88 won't be released for a while. None the less, I will make skins for the plane and I would like to answer your request.

I therefore think it is best that you send me a new PM with all the info you have when the plane is released. I might forget your request if it takes a long time for the plane to be released. 

 

Thank you for your complement. Your IL-2 skins also look great and very detailed. Well done.
