Great work on Farrier's Spitfire, but just a small note: the Spitfires in Dunkirk didn't have the red fabric over the gunports.

Gorgeous work, Detcord. Will we see Collins' aircraft as well? :biggrin:

 

Should probably have included that in the initial DL. Which was his exactly (photos/serial)?

I found a lot of reference material where the gunports were covered. It may not have been present in the film, but were on some Spits during the battle.

Here's a photo of both: http://www.warbirdsn...s/MLR_3009a.jpg

I also found photos of this Spitfire that crashed in Dunkirk, piloted by Geoffrey Dalton Stephenson. Squad marking QV only, serial number N3200 http://i.dailymail.c...36466366580.jpg

Yes, the Spitfires in the actual battle had covered gunports, but I'm only talking about the ones in the film.

So, I have an unnatural obsession with the Russian naval camo patterns applied to their aircraft right now. Can't explain it, it just is what it is. The current schemes are rather amazing and remind me of something long ago. They're elegant and old-school and border on the beautiful, IMHO. It's kinda of a stark contrast as to what the US is using at present with the flats, and I wanted to recreate that in IL-2. 

 

Disclaimer - This is competently fictional. It never existed. I'm simply looking for people willing to test it and search for errors. If you're interested let me know. Must have the Yak-1B Collectors Aircraft.

Hi

 

I'll help

 

I used to have 3 spitfire skins in the original IL2 that had a similar cammo, I think it was a 2 tone duck egg blue and sea blue, and they had the naval emblem on a white tail, red stars and red numbering - I lost them in an HD crash  :angry:

 

salute

I like the look of the captured 109s. If you have the time I/we would greatly appreciate them. Great work with your other skins; I wish I had the talent.

Cheers.

Fw-190 A5 added. 

 

This was one of those weird ones. It had spent time in the EF (UKN unit) prior to being transferred to JG 1 to combat the increasing Allied bombing effort in and around Northern Germany. It retained a lot of odd colors/RLM's and patterns, obviously being painted and repainted over and over. Still, thought it was interesting.
