Whoa!

You spoil us with sugar! Simply great. The pictures of the Stang are melting me away. How I would love to sit inside her and take the controls - and hear the Pakard-Merlin. I can hardly wait and thank you for the time and effort Il-2 Team! :salute:

The mustang looks like more than just "work in progress", it looks more like "nearly done".

It also looks bloody great! The P-38 is the one I'm most curious about, but the Mustang will be a blast for sure!

Beautiful planes, thank you team for everything your doing, very much appreciated.

The pilot in the Fokker, (last screenshot), appears to be giving you a thumbs up too :good::)

Got to say that the Fokker looks stunning - the skin looks like canvas and the pilot looks damn near real; nice thumbs up in the last image -  look natural.

Thanks for DD.  The 51 looks further along then I would have thought at this time.  Thank you team BOX:salute:.

That isn't just a DD, it's porn! Great to see screenies of the Tempest and the 'stang :)

What a pair of beauties!

 

I've just been holding a straight-edge to the P-51 images to take in the lines without the radiator and it has to be one of the most attractive aircraft ever flown. The clean lines of the foils and the flow of that body...

 

Every Spitfire jockey loves his pigeon-breasted mount, but you still have to stop and marvel at the lines of the Mustang.

 

I can't wait to see what she can do.

 

As for the Tempest, it's a delight to see the model so well advanced, especially in light of the lengths gone to to secure reference material. I hope she fulfils the aspiration to become the most faithfully modelled Tempest V in any modern flight sim.

 

It will be an accolade well-deserved. :salute:

This is bloody ridiculous, shortly another 2 a/c to have to choose from. I think once these 2 are released an official poll should be held to cull the existing choices to 2 each a/c for German, Russian, Brit and US. The game is just getting too cluttered. Enough devs, no more please.

The P-47 has generated a bonanza in colorful skins, but it may be that P-51 skinners will be even more prolific...😛

I kinda see your point. Just how many planes do we expect to have made available? How many do we currently individually fly often and to its' capabilities?

 

Still, people want what they want. I want the P-38 and P-51 especially. I just like and want them.

 

We all like what we like and want what we want and are willing to pay for them. There is nothing wrong with that.

This crop of planes in bobp is just loaded with tasty skinning opportunities. I for one am looking forward to making skins for the me262, dora, and p51. Got some nice Raaf 3sqn paint jobs I can do for the p51.

So the D.VIIF is going to be a separate aircraft then?

 

?

Have been under the assumption that the D.VIIF would be an engine mod for the D.VII, rather than separate aircraft as in ROF, but would be curious as to which is the case.

It looks at this point as if it will be approached as a separate aircraft. Kind of a bonus 11th aircraft :)

 

I guess we'll see how they ultimately approach this.

Finally got some WIP on my P-51... Me been American i was feeling left out not been able to fly many American planes on IL-2 it looks very nice my only concern is the sound is it going to have the real Mustang sound and the whistle that the .50 cal barrels make? Will it come with external fuel drop tanks?

"It should be noted that while many Mustangs still exist around the world, including airworthy ones, most of them are combinations of different modifications, including post-WWII ones. Therefore we're spending a lot of time researching tech schematics, spare parts catalogs, and similar documents to make sure the final result will be as authentic as possible."

 

My respect and appreciation.

 

Have a nice day.

The Tempest and Mustang are two beautiful machines, the artists seem to have captured their lines superbly, looking forward to having them introduced to the game.:cool:

 

Thank you very much to all involved, really appreciated.:drinks:

 

 

Wishing you all the very best, Pete.:biggrin:

Spitfire... Beautiful.

Mustang... Nice, but not beautiful.

Tempest... Not beautiful, but thuggish and dangerous looking.

262... Like a shark, beautiful, but predatory.
