    Thicko made a Brandenburg W.12 while Bortdafarm (Chris Benson) has done the W.18 and Macchi M.5, both of which could do with a new coat of paint.

    Alexander Belov made a fantastic Austrian naval and seaplane base at Kumbor, Montenegro (found at Avsim). It's for FS2004 but works perfectly in CFS2.

    I have tried them (as well as other planes from him) and they would need much more than new skins. 3D models are off and I am not sure they are correctly mapped. This, plus their DPs and airfiles seem to be borrowed from CFS1 Sopwith Camel.

    Kevin,
    Where would I find Thicko's Brandenburg W.12?

    Thanks Roxane-21. Could this aircraft be moved to the WW1 Aircraft section of the library?

    Baldy, would you mind uploading this Sopwith Camel skin, please? I have a weapon configuration that would fit perfectly with a RNAS Camel for Zeppelin hunting.

    Lt Culley's Camel texture

    Hi Roxane

    I've emailed Gary Aumaugher for his permission to upload - I'll keep you posted, in the meantime here's the revised mission which fixes the lighter's track and uses Stuart's R class destoyer

    Camel.mis.txt

    just delete the .txt from the mission

    This is what I feared...

    Most common gun configuration (used during the raid to Tondern) was one wing-mounted Lewis gun and one Vickers gun firing through the propeller (sometimes they kept both Vickers). The twin wing-mounted Lewis were exclusively used WITHOUT the Vickers.

    I tried to get rid of the Vickers guns by adding alpha channel to gun textures, but then I faced two issues:
    1- The aiming devices of the Vickers still remained.
    2- There were two huge holes on the nose in front of the pilot were the guns used to be.

    That's why I chose this configuration.

    I think we will not have the correct gun configuration unless somebody edit the 3D model.

    Lt Culley's Camel

    I've had a look at these issues and the only solution within my capabilities was to create a new cowling to add as 'wep_cowling' in the dp ( unfortunately the Vickers gunsights don't appear to be textured so remain in view )

    the 2D panel is easy enough to alter but the vc panel is less satisfactory

    some pics to illustrate



    view of new cowling




    2D panel



    vc panel

    the other problem is whether we can get permission to alter files in the original a/c

    Cool, looking forward to this.

    Also I noticed your Lewis gun is textured on your screenshot. I took it from your Sopwith Schneider, but there were no texture file. Is there another file available here from which I could grab this texture file, please?
