    Oh, great! Now I gotta go buy some metal polish! A pint of Guinness might help!

    FSX ONLY A-20C Havoc Model Additions

    The optional "C" model painted plexiglass nose additions have been uploaded.

    http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforum...7&linkid=23146

    There are no paints included. Look initially for paints from gman5250 and Duckie for these models.

    Read the model descriptions for an understanding of the differences.

    There are 3 nose gun variants and one bare metal version.

    FSX ONLY A-20G Havoc Model Addition

    I have now added the optional A-20G Reflective model to the library.

    http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforum...3&linkid=23147

    This package adds a new model folder to your existing A-20G aircraft installation.
    You must have the original A-20 Havoc package for this new model to be of use.

    You can get that original release package here:

    http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforum...r-FSX-P3D-Only

    Look for paints for this model here at SOH when they come available.

    Note to painters: The a20grefl model uses the same paint kit as the base model.
    The exterior textures accept the use of the diffuse alpha channels as well as normal specular and bump textures.
    This bare metal capable model is based on the basic G model.

    Following Up:

    I've uploaded the reflective metal skins for both the C and G models in a single file. These are design specific to work with the reflective enabled models.
    The files will be available following approval.

    Any questions regarding the reflective textures should be directed to me, not Milton.

    Hope everyone enjoys the metal look.

    Thanks for doing these Gordon. By chance is there a possibility I could ask you do a set of textures without the
    stars-n-bars, wing walks and danger stripes. It would make using your textures as a base for new paints easier.
    Also one thing I found on the fuserear is you left the paint chip layers turned on.

    Thanks again.

    Working on those now Joe, they should be ready tomorrow. These blanks will not have the wear and tear, antiskid or any other marks. They will be paint ready.
    I'm also going to do a set of service skins without the polish.

    Hello chaps,

    Does anyone know if there is a repaint of the only airworthy A-20 in the world?

    Cheers,
    Tim.

    I still had this one in the painting shed:



    thank you Gordon, for those wonderful metal textures!
    You can download it here.
    A bit of history for this aircraft:
    A-20A serial 40-166 was originally assigned to the 5th Air Force, 3rd Bombardment Group, 89th Bombardment Squadron. Nicknamed "Little Hellion" with the nose art of a girl next to a palm tree with nose number 13. On November 1, 1942 took off from 3 Mile Drome (Kila Kila) near Port Moresby piloted by Ford on a strike mission against Lae. This was Ford's thirteenth combat mission. Over the target, damaged by anti-aircraft fire that ruptured the hydraulic lines forcing it to make a wheels up, flaps up force landing at 7-Mile Drome. Afterwards, this aircraft was written off.
    Afterwards, it was inspected again and deemed not to be as heavily damaged as initially assessed. The aircraft was towed back to 3 Mile Drome (Kila Kila) and placed onto empty 55 gallon fuel drums. Over two months, this A-20 was repaired using parts from A-20A Havoc 39-724 which also suffered a landing accident. New engines were installed and the aircraft completely rebuilt. Equipment including the armor plating, guns and bomb racks were removed. 3rd Bomb Group mechanics including Kip Hawkins and Joe Long worked on this aircraft. When completed, the aircraft still bore the tail serial number 40-166 and made a test flight on February 4, 1943 piloted by Captain Petri. Renamed "The Steak and Eggs Special". On February 21, 1943 departed Port Moresby piloted by Lt. H Brown with two passengers and 200 Pounds to purchase steak, fresh fruit and vegetables in Australia, and returned three days later.
    During the next six months, this aircraft was used as a "fat cat" on supply runs from New Guinea to Australian cities including Cairns, Townsville, Brisbane and Sydney for fresh food, vegetables, eggs and liquor. During early May 1943, it moved with the squadron to Dobodura. During August 1943, it was stripped to a bare metal finish with a red and white stripped tail. The nickname was changed to "Steak and Eggs" and later "Steak & Eggs" on both sides of the nose.
    During November 1943 this aircraft, piloted by H.D. Brown with passenger Lt. Lauer, flew under the Sydney Harbor Bridge before landing at Mascot (Sydney Airfield). At the end of January 1944, this aircraft moved with the squadron to Nadzab Airfield. Since this aircraft did not officially exist in unit records, precisely how many fat cat missions this aircraft flew is unknown.
    On June 11, 1944 while flying in Queensland, Australia piloted by Lt. Rude Vucelic with five passengers aboard including the crew chief, the A-20 was caught in bad weather and ran low on fuel. It force landed on a beach on the northwest side of Low Wooded Island, near Cooktown. Passenger Lt Kennedy who was in the nose injured his shoulder during the landing, and four others escaped reasonably well.
    After the crash, a salvage party did visit the aircraft, but a complete salvage was deemed too difficult. Today, the wreckage still remains on the beach including the two engines and wing section of the wreckage.

    My pleasure Jan Kees. I did a few basic skins, but I can't wait to see yours.

    as far as I know, no bare metal A-20's ever flew with the 9th AF, which is too bad, because they would have looked nice I think..

    That plane with the Hard To Get nose-art is awesome. Love the bare metal textures, and the nose-art is fantastic! I will definately use that!

    Thanks for all the great paints you, Gordon, and all the others as well, output. They are great!

    Those shots are really nice gentlemen.

    I've finished the A-20G Blank Metal skin. This one will upload today.
    This is just the bare skin, no markings for the painters who want a clean canvas. The A-20C will come next, then service skin variants for both models.
