    It is not that strange that there are not many German aircraft known in desert scheme. On October 23 of 1942 the Axis had 76 Italian and 122 German planes available, the British/Allied had 1.585. The ratio was 1/5. In El Alamein the Axis could rely only on a fighter or diving bomber force; the RAF, instead, had a large bombing force available with that were launched hundreds of raids beyond the Axis lines. Cheers, Huub

    Thanks, I'm glad you like it. With virtual paint I can finally achieve what I tried (but in which I never succeeded) with plastic models. This repaint is one of the suitable "desert" paints which fit in the period from MCDesign's scenery. As I personally think the scheme is a bit boring I tried to make it interesting by applying some detailed weathering. Personally I think it looks nice and reasonably realistic. I always think about scenarios which could damage an aircraft and apply the weathering and damage accordingly. For instance the left wing is more damaged than the right wing, as the footstep is on the left side, so the pilot climbed into the cockpit from that side. However I have some doubts whether a "Gruppenkommandeur" would fly in such a weathered aircraft...... ...

    Dale I build gamer units LOCALLY ONLY for a living however I agree with Nick N as to what and how to build a great unit for FSX, P3D and X-Plane. I am not bragging but I build some of the fastest and best Flight Simulation hardware for way below what it would cost at a GAMER retailer. Nick is the MASTER BUILDER! So if you are patient in your reading of the following you will find the keys to the kingdom in building and enjoying the FSX/P3D experience...I promise. Read all of this. Make a sandwich and get your favorite beverage and decide to read this until you fully get what Nick is saying. Trust me you will be a very happy FSXer!

    A bit rough: can't the pilots wash their hands before flight??? Splendid modelling and texturing so far! :applause:

    In this A/C one needs to correct the t.mos file so that it should call for the B24_h_467_t.dds other wise if you attemp to use this plane with the t.mos in a mission the skin will not show (all dark).

    Yes, anywhere in any expansion there are groups of maximum 8 planes, at least thats my experience. Maybe there is a way to increase the number of planes but at least through mission builder its restricted to 8. Maybe Kodiak can try make it 9 and see what happens. I only work through mission builder coz im not a whizz but the principle is the same i think. The mission in the pic has 117 planes in it, in 15 units and up till now no restrictions regarding maximum nr of units. But i don't know if the mission builder creates separate spawnfiles or puts them together. I will send you the .xml so you can read it in notepad. Hanko

    Hi Kodiak, I have been playing around with some mission building and as far as i know the max nr of planes per group is 8 but you can place as many groups together in different shapes and create bigger formations. Here some pics of a B17 protection mission with 48 b17's, 16 p51's, and loads of enemy groups coming in After the mission they all land together at one airfield, b17's everywhere

    Dave, this particular aircraft had the tailmarking painted over. When you look closely to this repaint you can still see traces from the tailmarking. When you use one of the tailmarkings you can find behind the link posted by Mathias, you will loose the unit marking on the cowling. In short: The repaint is historically completely correct as it is. Cheers, Huub

    AFAIK the Swordfish was never finished and the gmax files would be needed to finish it. I don't know if they are still extant.
