Thanks to all of you

As you're very nice, and because I'm a big fan of Rugby and the All Blacks team, I propose you a bonus pack with 4 blank skins, that is to say without code

Obelix discovered this great skins today. Btw I am a springbok fan.

 

I have a request suggestion: In the spirit of rugby and the x factor can you perhaps consider:

Taking skin number x and put a new zealand silver fern (small) on the left side of the radiator in white or black. Of course a springbok would be great as well 🤭

 

And now I have bumped this thread to the top because a lot of pilots will be looking for it.😁

May be, but not now

 

It should be a 1930's look like one!
