    Hi Vinci,

    It is the beautiful Ju-52 by Oliver Fischer. The model is available at Flightsim.com (filename: junkr522.zip).

    The repaint is done by me I started it about 3 years ago and finally hope to finish it this week. It is based on the Ju-52 in the Royal Military Museum in Brussels.

    This repaint was mainly done to create a paintkit, which I already used for 2 repaints which are available in the library.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Although Oliver Fisher only made a very limited amount of models, his models area absolutely brilliant. They breath a certain atmosphere and you can almost smell the oil and worn leather.

    But especially his Buecker Bu-131 Jungmann contains some surprises for the repainters. He made the models and texture lay-out definitely with specific aircraft in mind. The wings from the Bu131 contain sections in another scale, which makes the typical German civil registration codes appear much sharper, but makes in very difficult to drawn the wing structure and draw shadow and light to simulated real fabric. It also makes drawing larger national marking much more complex.

    A thing he uses both on his Ju-52 as on Bu-131 is the dedicated texture to show the aircraft from the VC. With most models you look at the "normal" external textures from inside the VC. But Oliver Fisher made a separate texture which shows the external model from the VC. This is not unique, but definitely more work. But the models are that nice that they are really worth the extra work

    Cheers,
    Huub

    Below the two repaint for Oliver's Ju-52 I released so far

    Hi Bernard, yes, they were on curlsnouts own site and hovercontrol, but hovercontrol is gone, and I think so is curlsnouts own site, if you know where to find them please tell

    Fortunately I still have it.



    This blank version just approaches Melbourne Essendon and does shuttle flights to Yarra River Heliport, despite of missing Ansett repaint.

    Or a couple of years ago:

    I have the skid and float versions of the Bell 47J. In the ReadMe file is the following:

    "NOTE! This model may not be placed on a website without the written permission by the copyrighters!
    Copyright 2004 Lasse Lindh. Additional copyright also incorporates Jeff Jankovics and Tom Heaverloo for distribution and repaint.
    Lasse Lindh
    Sweden
    3L@comhem.se "

    I'm of two minds about uploading them here. On one hand I think they're freeware and abandonware and there could be no harm in putting them in the library. On the other hand, the developer has specifically asked that it not be done. Back to the first hand, when he wrote that the developer had his own web site, which is now defunct. Back to the second hand, he said what he said. So...

    If it was my stuff I wouldn't mind as long as nobody was selling my freeware. But that's my opinion, not Lasse's.

    I have no idea whether Lasse reads English. Does anyone know enough Swedish to write and see if that e-mail address is still valid? Then we could ask him.

    Yes, just search for 'FS2004 Lasse Lindh' and you will get here a thread named 'Bell 47J-2'. There the link is mentioned. Some of you have answered to it in 2009, BTW!

    Oops! Sorry. I thought all the repaints would be available at the usual download sites and that it was the model that had gone away.

    When first saw a profile of this aircraft I thought I was fake and thought it came out of a comic book like Mortimer and Blake or Tintin. I didn't recognise the marking at the wings, but after some googling around I found out that it was real and I was even able to find some pictures form the real aircraft. The aircraft was part of the "Regierungsstaffel" and was the personal aircraft of Victor Lutze the head of the "Sturmabteilung" (SA) and the second man in the Nazi party. Not a character you would like to meet in real life.

    According to the description in Osprey "Ju 52/3m Bomber and Transport Units 1936-41" by Robert Forsyth the unique brown colour was based on the "brown shirts" worn by the members of the SA.







    And the real thing



    Cheers,
    Huub

    Edit: I see the SA insignias on bottom of the wings are mirrored.

    Hey Huub, did you know those VIP Ju52 had ejection seats for the vip?

    Saw an interesting thing on the tellybox last week where they were going around Himmlers' JU52 in a museum, apparently a lever on the seat would release a panel below the seat, and seat plus vip would fall out through the floor seat had an inbuilt
    parachute too

    That is completely new for me . As this aircraft made me curious, I did check how many aircraft belonged to the "Regierungsstaffel" (Governmental flight) and was really amazed.

    Next to a number of machines for general use, there were several in the top of the NSDAP who had more than one machine.

    After the start of the war most of them were transferred to the Luftwaffe, however some of them remained in use by this governmental flight until 1945. In fact most Ju-52 aircraft were replaced by FW-200 aircraft from 1939 onwards.

    Interesting read, but you wonder whether somebody Hitler's age would survive such an escape.

    i'm sure if it had been the last resort it would have been used; on the Ju52 the seat went out via the disused bomb bay doors one would surmise, the Ju52 having 2 bomb bays in fuselage.

    from wiki
    In a military context, the Ju 52 could carry up to 18 fully-equipped soldiers, or 12 stretchers when used as an air ambulance. Transported material was loaded and unloaded through side doors by means of a ramp. Air-dropped supplies were jettisoned through two double chutes; supply containers were dropped by parachute through the bomb-bay doors, and paratroopers jumped through the side doors. Sd.Kfz. 2 Kettenkrafträder (half-track motorcycles) and supply canisters for parachute troops were secured under the fuselage at the bomb bay exits and were dropped with four parachutes. A tow coupling was built into the tail-skid for use in towing freight gliders. The Ju 52 could tow up to two DFS 230 gliders
